These are just fun. :-) I knew the villain at first mention. I mean, really, when every other character is, as we know, a family member or in law or connection, starring in earlier books, it wasn't hard!
The mystery of why, though, kept my interest. I admit that there was a scene I expected after the rescue, that wasn't there, but that's OK. Just thought it'd be fun to see Devil's reaction. :-)
