Publisher's Summary

Bold, daring, larger-than-life heroes and feisty, intelligent heroines propel Stephanie Laurens' exciting historical romances. Devil's Bride is rich with engaging plot and sensuous character development.

Governess Honoria Wetherby values her independence. She would rather travel the world than marry and give some man control of her life. Then, one stormy evening, fate changes all her plans. She stumbles upon a mortally wounded young man in the woods. When the stranger dies, she is trapped in a cabin with his body and with his newly arrived cousin, Devil, whom she soon learns is aptly named. He insists that their unchaperoned night together has compromised her honor, and, therefore she must marry him. Tension levels run high as Honoria plots to thwart Devil's marriage plans and tries to help him find his cousin's killer...the same madman who is now plotting to murder Devil.

Narrator Simon Prebble tantalizes listeners as he breathes life into these intriguing characters.

Savor another Cynster novel.

    I really like the Duke and Dutches story lines. This was another great find. Good story line and the author did a fine job.

    Story
    "The first read in a series that goes on and on"
    Where does Devil's Bride rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    This is the top of my list, the story and the performance are the best I've heard and I go back often to


    What did you like best about this story?

    The character development, storyline movement, and twists in the plot.


    What about Simon Prebble’s performance did you like?

    Simon Prebble is a wonderful reader. Since he will no longer do romance, there will be a great pair of shoes that may never be filled. We will miss him terribly.


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

    The extreme for me was getting emotionally involved in the characters lives.


    Any additional comments?

    This is the first in a long series of books by this author and reader. I've kept up with the reads and am waiting on the next to be released early in 2012.

    "Awesome audible acting from Simon Prebble"
    What made the experience of listening to Devil's Bride the most enjoyable?

    Simon Prebble truely acted the parts. Very well done and pulled me in through the many hours of listening. I was up very very late because of that . He did Devil's voice just the way I would have expected to hear it.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    Devil and Honoria, they both were very great in showing strength and their growing relationship.


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

    The voices come to life with Simon Prebble. He also brings more excitement to the story along with emphasis on areas I had just bypassed on reading. Very riveting performance.


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

    Strong and passionate book with a murder mystery to resolve and murder to prevent.


    Any additional comments?

    After listening to Simon Prebble's audible, I found myself hunting down his other audible books. I have found that very rewarding.

    "Great narrator!"

    This is a reread with audible. Still a fun story sort of reminds me of Heyer story,too.
    The Cynisters, it all started with this book. I'm pretty sure I read everything in the series
    The narrator was great! It's worth listening just for the narrator, even though you might have read the story before.

    "interesting premise"

    the story line was good, but I knew from the beginning who the killer was. the sex scenes were interminably long in parts.

    "Don't waste your credit"
    What could have made this a 4 or 5-star listening experience for you?

    I couldn't finish this book. It was so ridiculous and I'm the girl that loves cheesy escapist audio listens. I bought the book for 4.95 on sale several weeks ago. It was on SALE for a reason.


    What do you think your next listen will be?

    Outlander.

    "Worse than a romance novel"

    If you want to listen to a book where the first part is about saying no to sex and the second half is purely about having sex, then this is your book. However if you are looking for an actual story PASS. This reminds me of a porno movie, no plot, just sex. Very disappointed.

    "One to read again"

    This is the first Stephanie Laurens book I purchased and after listening to it, I bought every one of the 18 in the series. The story is soo good, soo believable, and soo sexy, and Simon Prebble brings it to life. Devil Cynster is a powerful independent guy but when he meets Honoria, he meets the woman who can stand beside him as his duchess and make his heart soft as a marshmallow.

    "BETTER IN PRINT"

    I enjoyed reading this book much more than I enjoyed listening to it. The main characters bickered for about the first 15 chapters, which became nerve-racking to say the least. The narrator was okay but I preferred his performance in another book from this series, A Secret Love.
