What a strange experience This is my second and last Teresa Denys book I knew what to expect after The Silver Devil pretty much anything That s exactly what I got Only this time we re in Habsburg Spain and it s on the decline Those who are familiar with the Habsburg line and its interesting genealogy will know what to expect Things are rather rotten And this is where The Flesh and the Devil shines horrible and beautiful Alas it moves on from there To morph it into something that s recognisably romance I guess Except it doesn t sit comfortably with what came before It s not that it s bad it s that it isn t as great Still The Flesh and the Devil is a fascinating read It s sad that Teresa Denys didn t get to write books

Wow what a weird and beautiful book My expectations were pretty high because it s so rare as is Denys only other novel The Silver Devil and they were met for the most part The premise is pretty simple Girl is sold off into marriage to a faceless duke and danger and passion occur in the most unexpected ways with love and hatred being eual motivesWhat I loved most was Denys economy of language She manages to convey the dilapidated and rotting Spanish nobility and all its various parasites with vivid characters that are described with sharp brushstrokes Sometimes it can verge on the repetitious the heroanti hero Felipe Trist n is described as speaking tonelessly or unemotionally a lot but often it was used to great effect to describe a cast of characters from a nightmarish Goya family portrait There are in bred royal by blows indebted countesses turned procurers greedy uncles lustful and conniving aunts and peasants who will do anything to survive in a kingdom overtaxed and ruled by a social class unworthy of the responsibilityIn the middle of this is Juana de Arrelanos a merchant s daughter who is ripped away from her sweetheart to marry the Duue de Valenzuela While not of the nobility she is imperious with the standing that her family s money gives her and is determined that this marriage nonsense will not go through Unfortunately there are parties that are eually determined that the marriage will or will not in the case of His Majesty Philip IV happen and they don t much care what happens to the bride in the process of their machinationsIt s got a very gothic feel to it as Juana is trapped under the spell of insanity and secrecy that hangs in the air of the Castillo de Beneventes Providing much of the tension and threat especially to Juana s sense of who she really is under the stiff exterior of a proper Spanish lady is the Duue s handler Felipe Trist n He s a giant of a man with flame copper hair a scarred face and an attitude that just dares a person to mess with him and walk away Is he a tool to break Juana s will or does he have a mission of his ownI have to admit that I really loved this character even though he was an emotionless and mentally abusive bastard throughout most of the story with a few exceptions One of those things a reader can t explain I like what I like He and Juana have a fierce attraction to each other and neither is willing to admit it and it takes the two of them through murders and other dangers and complications sometimes self inflicted since this is nominally a romanceMy gripes are few since this was a beautifully engrossing book There are coincidences and conveniences throughout although Felipe Trist n s backstory comes into the plot and is revealed uite tidily towards the end a bit too HEA for my tastes Juana stupidly charges right into danger often though always manages to escape sometimes without aid so bully for her and he and Juana s distrust of each other continues right until almost the very last page It was a bit annoying to still have them at loggerheads so close to the end but eh whatever There s a lot that makes up for itThe sex isn t graphic no weeping members or dewy lady petals and I thought it was made intense and smokin for it especially the first encounter between Felipe and Juana Caveat lector it s borderline rapeforced seduction Three words and a verb had me fanning myself Although there were some bodice ripper elements Denys style was unlike what is typical of pure historical romance and so it really is in a category of its ownIf you like overwhelming and dominating heroes plenty of intrigue and tension with an intriguing portrait of glorious Spain in decline then it s worth scrounging up a copy They re expensive 31 and up so try library loan It s how I got my copy and now I ve got to read about the Habsburg dynasty Ever see the lineage of the last Spanish Habsburg king Not a whole lot of branches in that there family treeThis book review has been provided by the No Book Left Behind Campaign A Bodice Ripper Readers Anonymous group initiative to review the un reviewed
