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.

    Story
    "A READ ONLY BOOK."

    Three stars only because of the narrator, otherwise a 5 star book. I listened to "Smooth Talking Stranger" a year or so ago. I recently discovered the first two of the series. I loved "Sugar Daddy".Both of those books were great and had wonderful narrators. This book however, I could barely finished because of the narrator. Her voice is so wrong for this book. Her voices for the women made them seem old. It wasn't even right for the men, especially Hardy, I was so glad when the book finished and not because of the story.

    "Great romance series"

    If you like light and easy romance, then I think you'll like this series. Although each book is complete and not dependent on each other, I would suggest reading them in the order they were written. Start with "Sugar Daddy," then "Blue-Eyed Devil," then "Smooth Taking Stranger." I would have given this book 5 stars, but the narrator just wasn't as good as the first book. But after a few minutes I adjusted to her 5-pack-a-day smoker's voice and it didn't bother me so much and I was able to enjoy the book.

    "This book has it all"

    This is the best of the "Travis family" trilogy. The book was teriffic and I had a hard time putting it down due to the well-developed story and the interesting characters. Narroration was good.

    "Great listen"

    I really enjoyed this book even though it was difficult to listen when Haven was being hurt. However, all the things that happened to her shaped her and made her who she was and made Harley the best match for her. Again, like the other Lisa Kleypas books the characters are very well developed and the story is excellent. I had a hard time cutting this one off I couldn't wait to hear what happened next. This is the second book in the series, make sure you listen in order. This was excellent.

    "A Fun Read"

    I fell in love with Hardy Cates. Who could help it? I found the book intriguing, but the narrator somewhat annoying. Way too gravelly when she did Hardy, who otherwise is every girl's dream. I'm still getting used to "vivid" love scenes coming out of the speakers of my car while I'm driving, but I managed. This was a good "no-brainer" with a very engaging hero.

    "Well done!"

    Well written, fresh dialogue, superior narration!
    An interesting book and a very pleasant listen.
    I'll look for Kleypas and Raudman again.

    Story
    "Devil INDEED!"
    Who was your favorite character and why?

    Hayden. I loved the how she went from a weak misguided young girl to a strong sensual woman.


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

    I loved Renee Raudman narration of this book. I thought she really understood the characters and that came off from her narration making the book more enjoyable.


    Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

    Yes, I don't want to say too much, but it's when her brother went to picked her up from her plane. It made me tear up a little... Ok, a lot. :-)


    Any additional comments?

    I listened to the entire series from Lisa Kleypass and I thought this book was the best of the three. I was hoping that the series would continue on past the three, but it didn't.

    I like UF, PRN and historical romances. Some of my favorite authors are Jeaniene Frost, Karen Marie Moning, Richelle Mead, Kim Harrison, Chloe Neil, Lisa Keypads & Julia Quinn. The list keeps growing every day :o)

    "Well this books was definitely something!!!"

    I had to stop reading to cry a couple of times!!! I was so enthralled by this book it almost felt like it was a real story. Heaven is such a real character and her story is so heartbreaking and ordinary that it made me feel that I was just listening to a friend rather that reading a fictional book. Hardy is PERFECT!! I was a bit disappointed after reading Sugar Daddy and all his background history with Liberty to not end up with her, but now I’m glad he didn’t. He is just what Heaven needed.

    The narrator was better that in this book that in Sugar Daddy but I don’t think she is very good with the sex scenes.

    Next to Smooth Taking Stranger :) can’t wait!!!!

    "Draws you in..."

    Read the series! All are hot, sexy with a riveting story line. The women are smart, the men are strong and draw you deep into the storyline. Kleypas' contemporary romances are much better than the historical, but all are worth the time and money. Highly recommend! Narrator enjoyable.
