Du bist ein teuflisch sexy Weib(sbild) ... und gerade darum liebe ich Dich so (sehr).


Explanation:
Kim's suggested answer places the emphasis on "devil woman", just like the English original, while my suggested answer focuses on the "devilishly sexy" attributation of the woman this letter appears to be addressed to.

Sweet dreams ...

Du bist mein Sex-Teufel(in)chen ... und gerade darum lieb' ich Dich.


Explanation:
Mit der Endung "chen" wird die Verschönerungsform gewählt, während Teufelin ein feminer Teufel ist.

Je nachdem wie emanzipiert die Empfängerin ist, kann man(n) sich das "in" sparen ... ;-)

Du bist ein heisser Teufel! Ich liebe Dich!


Explanation:
I liked all of the above suggestions!!!

If I were the recipient of the letter, though, "Teufelin" would throw me off; and if I were only loved because I am a hot devil, that would not be too flattering.

So, I'd keep it plain in the end. He loves her, so, let's be non-sexual when it comes to love declarations but still specific when it comes to leaving the devil a male :)
