Release Blitz: Devil's Pawn by Natasha Knight

Title: Devil's Pawn
Series: Devil's Pawn Duet #1
Author: Natasha Knight
Genre: Dark Romance
Release Date: February 22, 2022



Jericho St. James hates my family.

Powerful, wealthy beyond belief, he is the most dangerous man I know.
And I belong to him.

He’s taken me from my home.
He plans to make me his wife.
And he’s made it very clear I’ll be sleeping in his bed.

But my beast has a secret.

His one weakness. One that makes hating him impossible.

He has a daughter.

And he’ll do anything to keep her safe.


The Bishops stole what money cannot replace.

A life for a life. Now I’ll take one of theirs.

Isabelle is my pawn.

I will make her my wife.
I will bed her.
She will be mine in every way.

And once I take what I need from her, I will erase the Bishop family as if they never existed at all.

Review by Jen Skewes

I must admit that I have been in a book slump lately.  I haven't read a book in quite some time, simply because nothing has piqued my interest.  But when I saw the Ms. Knight had a new book releasing I jumped at the chance to read it.  I was so excited to read it and I am so glad that I did.  Once again Ms. Knight completed delivered.  I have read many of her books and I love them all.  She knows how to write a dark, gritty, and intense story that has you doubting your own insanity.  Because you always manage to fall for the monster.  You try to find the reasons to justify it as well. And Devil's Pawn was no different.  

Jericho is out for revenge against the Bishop family who took something from him.  Revenge for Jericho St. James is not to kill the person that took someone from him, no that would be too easy.  Instead he will take his sister and make her his.  She will be his pawn in his game of revenge.  Isabelle will be his in every way, and denying him will only make it worse for her.  He hates her simply because of her family name.  She hates him for the cruelty she has to endure at his hands, and for taking her away from her life.  

Jericho is not the man to fight back against, to say no to.  But Isabelle is not one to back down even if it results in punishment.  She knows she should hate Jericho and a part of her does.  But there are so many sides to this man that she's not sure how she feels about him.  The one thing that makes her soft when it comes to Jericho St. James is seeing him with is daughter.  His daughter is the one person that he will protect at all costs.  Isabelle, herself has taken a liking to his daughter, coming somewhat of a bond.  She would never let anything happen to that little girl either.  But despite her love for his daughter and softer moments she has with Jericho she knows that his intentions are still not good.  will she continue to fight im every set of the way or will she find herself slowly giving in and falling for this monster?

I love the darkness that Ms. Knight creates wishing her characters and the story itself.  It is dark and makes you question your morals over and over again, but it is never to the point where it is uncomfortable to read.  I loved Jericho, even in his darkest moments, because you could just feel that deep down he does have a conscious and a heart.  He us just letting the past overtake the two of them.  To him, Isabell has always been nothing more than a pawn, but you see how hard he tries to convince himself of that at times.  I loved seeing him with is daughter, the softer side of him.  But it wasn't just with his daughter where he became softer.  You see the moments with Isabelle as well and that is what makes you love him, despite his very dark flaws.

Isabelle is a fighter and that is what I loved about her.  But she is also very caring an when it comes to Jericho's daughter that is exactly what she is. She is falling for that little girl just as much as she is for Jericho.  She wants more for her and I love that she has no issues with telling Jericho how she really feels.  She knows when to fight and when to back down.  I love watching the two of them fight what is right in front of them.  And I cannot wait for that moment when they both finally give in and realize exactly what it s between them.

In true Natasha Knight fashion, this one ended with a cliffhanger.  I am patiently waiting to see how this goes and how it all ends.  Jericho had a secret and at the end Isabelle finds out!!  And boy is she pissed.  Thankfully I do not have to wait too long to find out what happens.
