The Devil is French

The Whipping Society Book 2

"The Devil is French" by Delilah Marvelle is the second book in her Whipping Society series. The author is trying something different. Instead of the traditional romance novel that is completed at the end of a single book, Ridley and Jemdanee’s love story will be told over three books. Since this is book #2, the two individuals are in a transition to becoming a couple but they still have many obstacles to overcome.

In this story, the couple has moved from England to India and readers will get to enjoy all of the author’s rich pages of research. This will also thrill historical romance readers who are craving different types of stories but still want a sense of escapism.

I feel connected to these characters and I want to live more in this world so I'm glad I only have to wait a few months for the conclusion of this story with her next book, Reborn, which is scheduled to be published on August 28, 2017.

Book Blurb for The Devil is French


What would you risk to hold onto a love that only happens once?


Jemdanee Kumar is living beyond the seams of her soul trying to erase the one and only man who continues to haunt her body and mind: Mr. Ridley. She knows he is coming for her despite trying to bury him.

When he arrives into Calcutta, he begins to knot her into everything he is by making them both kneel to the passion neither of them can tame. Will the ropes stretch far enough to break the bond? Or will it tighten and twist them into a peril too dangerous to embrace?

Themes include humor, mystery, and romance. Lots of it!

This is Book 2 of the Whipping Society Saga.


PLEASE NOTE: Unlike most historical romances where the hero & heroine's attraction and love for each other stops at a mere one book, this full length book is one of three books following the highly charged, erotic saga of a couple through the rise and fall and storms of their relationship. Every book is tied up in own way.
