We are back with the Carlisle brothers. I discovered Anna Harrington last year and have enjoyed the previous two books in this series a lot. The Carlisle brothers were basically big troublemakers who are now finding love and cleaning up their act. In AS THE DEVIL DARES we finally come to Robert Carlisle, the last brother who actually blames himself for the death of his father and has sworn to become a successful businessman to make his father proud of him and how he’s changed.
To do that, he’s decided he needs to secure a partnership at Winslow Shipping. And Mr. Winslow will grant him that if he can help his eldest daughter marry by the end of the season. Of course, he can’t be one of the suitors because he would then loose the partnership. Mariah Winslow is also known for her crazy antics, even having the nickname of Hellion, and she wants nothing more in life than to be given that partnership at her father’s company. She doesn’t care about balls and dresses, or finding a husband. Her family’s legacy and business is her mission in life and Robert Carlisle is now standing in the way of it.
This was a great addition to the series, but it wasn’t necessarily my favorite. I liked Robert and Mariah and I thought they were great together! There was an ease to their interactions and I thought they were the perfect match for each other. But at the same time, some of it got a little boring and the pacing dragged a bit. I wish there would’ve been a little more excitement. This was definitely a very toned down version of Robert and I think some of the fun of the novel was missing.
Nevertheless, this was an entertaining read and I have enjoyed these brothers stories a lot. I’m not sure if there’s room for more in this series (maybe Mariah’s sister??) but I would definitely continue reading it and I’m looking forward to the next book by Ms. Harrington.

I get easily distracted by pictures of sexy guys and have tons of book boyfriends.I keep all my alpha males chained to my basement and guard them fiercely.*Back off bitches*I like to see Jason Momoa as a lot of those boyfriends, because ….. mmmmmmm JASON.MOMOA!
I’m a part time graphic designer (yes, everything you see on UTC has been done by me), run my husband's business from home and on a good day I’m a self appointed superwoman (she who can do it all).I love blogging with my girls and I couldn’t do it any other way!My first love is everything paranormal, but in the past few years I’ve re-learned to love contemporary romance.Every once in a while I like to mix things up with a historical romance, a steampunk or an LGBT book.Because I need variety to avoid book slumps.I don’t always need an HEA although I prefer one, and I love authors that can rip my heart out and make me ugly cry.
