Publisher's Summary

Meet the blue-eyed devil: His name is Hardy Cates. He's a self-made millionaire who comes from the wrong side of the tracks. He's made enemies in the rough-and-tumble ride to the top of Houston's oil industry. He's got hot blood in his veins - and vengeance on his mind.

Meet the heiress: She's Haven Travis. Despite her family's money, she refuses to set out on the path they've chosen for her. But when Haven marries a man her family disapproves of, her life is set on a new and dangerous course. Two years later, Haven comes home, determined to guard her heart. And Hardy Cates, a family enemy, is the last person she needs darkening her door or setting her soul on fire.

Watch the sparks fly: filled with Lisa Kleypas' trademark sensuality, filled with characters you love to hate and men you love to love, Blue-Eyed Devil will hold you captive in its storytelling power as the destiny of two people unfolds with every magical word.

    "Couldn't stop listening."

    Wow! This book was better than SugarDaddy. I couldn't stop listening to it. The characters, Hardy and Haven, were great and the chemistry hot, hot, hot. I highly recommend this book.

    "Ble-eyed Devil"

    Wow what a book. I was capitivated from the very beginning. Parts were sultry and well done. For me, I'd describe it as a gripping love story... and so much more. The reader was quite good and kept me very interested. I'd highly recommend it. This was my first experience with this author. (Lisa Kleypas) I will look for another one of her books immediately.

    "Enjoyed It!"

    It is entertaining, it is worth it. i felt like it was slow in the beggining, or may be it was the narrator. (I had finish a great narrated book prior to this one), But i was soon hooked. Definetly, not a waste of money.

    I ignore genre labels. Some of my favorite books are outside my genre comfort zone. Listening to audiobooks is still reading. Not theater.

    Story
    "Please put these people out of our misery."

    The heroine is a depressing basket case, so whiny and weak I found myself wishing I could reach out and slap her myself. And the hero was so angst-ridden he was totally unbelievable. This had the potential to be a good story. But the main character was a total wimp, and the tough guy hero was so tortured that together they would suck the air out of any room. I don't know if they would have come across so pathetic with a different narrator. For this book the voice plus the characters equaled fingernails down a chalkboard. By the time she got some backbone near the end, it was too late, and even with backbone she still sounded like she was on heavy duty tranquilizers. And he became increasingly stupid.

    I can usually deal with two or three episodes per book when a character fails say the one thing that would resolve so much conflict, that would make the other characters make more sense, or something that would move the story along. In this book though, I lost track of the times I wanted to shout - "Just spit it out!"

    The book actually dealt with a serious subject - spousal abuse and rape. I realize these subjects can't be treated lightly or humorously. But it was hard to work up any empathy, much less sympathy for anyone in this book.

    I had already read the book before, which made the hero of this book come across as much more interesting and worth knowing. I had already read the book after this one as well, which includes the main characters of this book. I was looking forward to reading their story. Instead I almost stopped reading this every few pages, but something kept me going. I wish now I had stopped.

    "Absolutely MAGICAL!"

    I loved this second book in the series ! I fond it even better than the first book. This book gets you hooked from the start . Amazing story, and dialogue . The most enchanting in the story in the main characters. The hero is one of my best heroes ever ! What I love about Lisa's work is that she creates a full community of people that participate in the story effectively. The narration was not up to the level of the book. I liked the narrator of the first book compared to this narrator. But still you will complete this book with a smile on your face :) enjoy :)

    Story
    "5 Star Book BUT The Narrator Was Not Chosen Well ."
    What did you like best about Blue-Eyed Devil? What did you like least?

    I have loved all the books in this series. The narrator for this book was chosen poorly. Her voices were bad and I did not finish the audio book because of this. I finished the book on my Kindle.


    How could the performance have been better?

    A different narrator would be the only fix for this audio book.


    What would have made this romance irresistible?

    A different narrator because the book is wonderful.

    Story
    "Favorite Kleypas novel"
    What did you love best about Blue-Eyed Devil?

    The character, Haven, has a lot of development, grows a lot during the story. I enjoyed not having a perfect character, but instead having someone going through obstacles and becoming a better person


    What did you like best about this story?

    Not a fluff piece, but still has strong romance


    What does Renée Raudman bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    Her accents are very good. They flow naturally. Sometimes, the guys' voices would be a little forced, but ultimately, she did a wonderful job.


    If you were to make a film of this book, what would the tag line be?

    Finding true love?


    Any additional comments?

    This is an amazing story. I can't tell you how many times I have read it. I finally broke down and got the audio book, and I love it. It is rather nice that Kleypas established characters in the first novel, Sugar Daddy, and kept their personalities in this novel as well.

    "Amazing!"
    Where does Blue-Eyed Devil rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    This one really spoke to me. The narrator makes a good book really fantastic.


    What did you like best about this story?

    Both main characters are sexy, funny, and human.


    Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    I have listened to several of my favorite audiobooks more than once, but this one - I have had to hear it so many times I can't even count.

    Story
    "Oh! So Worth Getting!!!!!!"

    The only flaw of this audio book was the narrator"s male characters sound a bit over done which made me laugh at the wrong time some times but other than that it's a perfect ten. A gripping story that would make it so hard to put down while the narrator's performance just adds to the suspense. I found myself smiling, crying and even getting angry as if watching the best movie ever. Something that's become a norm for me with Lisa's stories like the Wallflower & Hathaway series. I can't wait to read her whole library.

    Where does Blue-Eyed Devil rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    pretty close to the top


    What did you like best about this story?

    Who doesn't love a good love story. The thing I liked the best is how different Haven and Hardy are.


    What about Renée Raudman’s performance did you like?

    The different tone she used for each character.


    Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    It totally made me cry.
