"4 Stars!...Fasten your seatbelts, 'cause this is one fast-paced book. The characters reached out and pulled me into their world and I didn't want to escape until I reached the end. [Devlin and Alyssa] are like oil and open flames—when they get together, the heat they generate is enough to get you burned just reading about it! There are some very clever touches in Sweet Justice. Ms. DeRouge had me wondering about the twists and turns all the time, which was a refreshing touch."—Michelle Naumann, Just Erotic Romance Reviews
"4 Angels!...Delphyne DeRouge scorches the pages with Sweet Justice; you’ll need a fan handy for this one, y’all. I want a shower exactly like the one Alyssa had, and I want it soon! Alyssa and Devin are caught up in their past together and when the past becomes the present, they fairly simmer with unrestrained passion and lust. Add some local mafia-type hoods to the mix and this story compellingly unfolds even as the plot twists and turns. How Ms. DeRouge packed so much into Sweet Justice, I’ll never know, but I’m so glad that she did."—Michelle, Fallen Angel Reviews
"4 Cups!...Delphyne DeRouge has woven a richly textured tale of young love and adult treachery. The plot line and language are quite believable making the story easy to read. The motivations are not given until the end, so the impact is sudden. All of these points add up to an enjoyable read."—Katherine L. Hunt, Coffee Time Romance

I wanted to shout out about the injustice done to Devlin and the ten years that he lost needlessly. Delphyne DeRouge has written another winning story that is not to be missed."—Dina Smith, Romance Junkies

It was more than the tall, muscled, disciplined body. She sensed a restraint in him that he was struggling to maintain. He possessed a dangerous edge. Not directed at her, perhaps. But instincts told her this potent man would be a deadly foe when riled. Controlled violence radiated from every pore. He'd learned his lessons well in the venomous turmoil of the prison yard. It made him all the more exciting.
"This is your safety we're talking about," he snarled. "Your future!"
"And your life!" she snapped back.
"You are the most galling woman."
He pulled her to him, crushing his lips onto hers.
Alyssa clung to him, melted into him, her lips quivering and compliant...
