Blog Tour: The Devil's Submission - Nicola Davidson

The Devil’s Submission

by Nicola Davidson 
The Fallen #2 
Publication Date: February 6, 2017 
Genres: Adult, Entangled: Scorched, Erotic, Historical Romance, Standalone


Disinherited by his parents and estranged from his wife, Fallen pleasure club co-owner Lord Grayson ‘Devil’ Deveraux long ago learned to place his trust in ledgers rather than people. But his ice-cold reserve hides the scandalous truth: he’s a man who craves pain with his pleasure, and a loving lady to instruct him. Banished to the country when her whirlwind marriage collapsed, Lady Eliza Deveraux never knew why Grayson fell out of love with her: she’d tried so damned hard to quell her fiery self and be a proper, obedient wife. But when Eliza is forced to return to London and back into Grayson’s intoxicating world, banked passions reignite. Can a marriage built on secrets and pretense truly get a second chance?



The Devil’s Submission is the second of Davidson’s “Fallen” series of novellas.  It is just as steamy as Surrender to Sin. However, in contrast to book one, this story has a bit of a backstory to it.  There’s no insta-love here folks.  And it was a welcome change.  I do definitely recommend that you read these in order though.  It’s not necessary but it’s definitely a pleasure.  Plus Sin is an excellent introduction to all of the characters (and is wonderfully delicious to boot).

Grayson and Eliza are already wed and been married six months.  They are estranged when the story starts.  Grayson is adorably disheveled, constantly ink-stained and hiding who he really is.  Eliza is feisty and independent but had changed herself to fit perceptions of who she was supposed to be.  Submission is about being true to who you are and reveling in it.  I adored this book.  I loved that it was a Domme/sub book; you don’t see many of those.  This was my first and I thought it was handled with class.  The chemistry between the two is explosive.  I loved seeing the play between them.  I had previously stayed away from Domme books because I was worried authors would play too far into the stereotype but that was far from the case here.  The scenes were sexy, tender and intense. 

There’s some family drama that accompanies Eliza’s return to her husband that adds some spice to the book, ramping up the entertainment.  But it’s definitely low angst and pretty humorous at times, even if I wanted to strangle Lady Brimley.  The only things I didn’t like is the time spent on Lady Brimley (I’d rather it was spent on Grayson and Eliza!) and the modern language.  The language detracts from the Regency feel.  Other than that, I did enjoy it!  These books have definitely joined my re-read shelf and I can’t wait to see how Vice falls.   -Peace and Love, Buxom J 


  NICOLA DAVIDSON worked for many years in communications and marketing as well as television and print journalism, but hasn’t looked back since she decided writing wicked historical romance was infinitely more fun. When not chained to a computer she can be found ambling along one of New Zealand’s beautiful beaches, cheering on the champion All Blacks rugby team, history geeking on the internet or daydreaming. If this includes chocolate – even better!
