Old flames burn the hottest...

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?

Each book in the Fallen series is a standalone story that can be enjoyed out of order.

'The Devil's Submission' by Nicola Davidson is the story of Lord Grayson ‘Devil’ Deveraux and Lady Eliza Deveraux. This is a Novella with about 85 pages and is book Two in the "Fallen' series.

This was quite a naughty book. Quite fun as well. I love that the main theme is accepting who you are and also finding someone who can love you for you. Eliza and Dev struggled and were trying to hide themselves from each other but once they revealed their desires and their true selves to each other ...more

Lady Eliza Deveraux has earned the scorn of her mother, Countess Brimley, when she left her husband after six months, Lord Grayson Devereaux, better known as Devil or Dev by his friends. Eliza has fought her nature all her life; she has never quite managed to be the demure, prim and proper a husband ...more

By Kaelan March 19, 2017

Oh, my goodness. I'm so glad I followed a fellow writer's suggestion to buy and read the novella THE DEVIL'S SUBMISSION by Nicola Davidson.

It's hard to find well-written and edited erotic romance (that I haven't written myself) with a switch or submissive male. Almost like hunting for unicorns, to b ...more

Suprisingly good and definately erotica. Will read the other installments as I am curious about all the "Fallen" owners. ...more

Naughty fun, scorching heat, reckless abandon, with a sprinkle of submission and delightful games. Erotic intoxication of historic proportions.

Full review at Smart Bitches, Trashy Books

Oh, how I loved The Devil’s Submission. I wished it were longer than just a novella.

First of all, it’s one of the few erotic romances, let alone historicals, that I’ve read that features a submissive hero.

The reason I loved The Devil’s Submission so much was ...more

By Tamara February 11, 2017

I've become a huge fan of Nicola's work, especially after the release of the FALLEN series and The Devil's Submission did not disappoint. What a great, fast paced, but meaningful book. I love how Nicola can make her readers feel for her characters in such a short span of time. I can't wait for the t ...more

By Stacy April 29, 2017

This was a wonderful mix of hotness and charm. Devil and Eliza were pretty good together, and though this book was a quick read, I felt as if I learned a good bit about each character. Lizzie was a charming mmix of strength and vulnerability, and Devil though a sub was so yummy. I enjoyed their HEA ...more

By Emmanuelle March 08, 2019

Sexy, emotional and SO satisfying!
Having read 'Surrender to Sin' (which I adored) I dived straight into the sequel.
It not only lived up to the gorgeous sensuality of the first volume but delivered an extra large dollop of cream on top.

🔥 Volcanic. The hottest book I've read in a very long time. I lo ...more

The Devil’s Submission is the second erotic romance novella by Nicola Davidson that is set with the pleasure club Fallen as its background. The first story, Surrender to Sin, was an excellent introduction to the characters and club, and this one takes us on an equally steamy ride as an estranged mar ...more

By Scarlett February 10, 2017

This is the second quick romance novella in this author's Fallen series. It can be read as a standalone - because I was able to follow the story just fine and I did not read the first book (but I am sure going to go read it now!). For those that did read Surrender to Sin, we get a quick glimpse at S ...more

By Jessica October 05, 2019

A short read that packs a smutty punch :) This series gets better and better! The story of Grayson & Eliza is not only sexy hot, but also FULL of heart. It is the greatest combination.

As I already mentioned, this is a really short read so there isn’t much for to tell you other than it is very well w ...more

Sexy, naughty, fun journey. Wow just wow, what a wild ride.
"I recommend you dive into it without reading any review"
Don't be deceived by the title, trust me you will be surprised of what this book is actually about just like I was. I loved this book so much, just like the previous one, I wa ...more

Trigger warnings: mentions of assault (in the past), shitty parenting.

3.5 stars.

Having now read all three books in this trilogy, I can say that this was my favourite of the three. And I think that's probably because the romance side of things was already out of the way due to the fact that they'd ...more

By Ki February 07, 2017

It was hot hot hot! And I absolutely loved Grayson. He is just such a wonderful husband and man.

I've got say, I didn't think it could get any sexier and steamier after the first book in the series but man oh man, I'm absolutely loved it!

And I am definitely in love with Grayson. 

He's just the best hu ...more

By Harlie April 06, 2017

Oh my! My second Scorched book and I loved it. It was hot, sweet and historical to boot. But while the book had all of that, it also had characters that I actually cared about and great story to read. Yes, there was an actual story besides the sex. See, I don’t read the really hot stuff anymore beca ...more

What an intriguing continuation of The Fallen Series! Set in England in the early 1800's.
Because of his past failures Grayson has learned to trust numbers not people. It didn't matter that he craves pain and pleasure, it's just not in the cards for him. He thought it was with his wife, b ...more

Interesting and quick read, I quite liked this book. Lord Grayson and Lady Eliza have been living apart from each other because they couldn't make their marriage work.

What a nice change for an historical romance! Usually we have the man being the alpha who takes charge, but here we have it the other way around.

Eliza, or Lizzie as her husband calls her, is fiery and bossy and her husband, Grayson, knows this is just what he needs. But Eliza listens to her mother ...more

About the author

Nicola Davidson

New Zealander Nicola Davidson always adored words, romance and history, so writing historical romance was a logical career, eventually. After completing a communications degree and journalism diploma she left to teach English in Taiwan and travel through Asia before returning home to work in television. Jobs in tertiary education, local government communications and print media followed, but the lords and ladies in her head wouldn't hold their peace a moment longer and so began the years of professional daydreaming. When not chained to a computer writing wickedly sexy, witty and twisty turny stories, Nicola can be found ambling along a beach, cheering on the champion All Blacks rugby team or driving her nearest and dearest batty with her history geekisms, chocolate hoarding and complete lack of domestic skills.
