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.

    Good but there are over 20 books in this series.... so I must move on so I can get though these.

    Hornoria and Devil were the main characters and everything centered around them and their relationship.


    Which scene was your favorite?

    When Hornoria tells Devil that she has decided to marry him.


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

    Devil's Love
    Murder, treachery and deceit mixed with passion, love and a unwavering commitment to justice and truth.


    Any additional comments?

    The first set of book I listened to by Stephanie Laurens were a few Regencies and Novellas. These were enjoyable and written well but a little tame. Next I read the three books from the Cynster Sisters Trilogy. With the excellent… tantalizing writing and great overall plot these were wonderful. Although those could be considered as a stand along set of three there were a number of family characters that were mentioned or alluded to that made you want to know their stories. Devils Bride introduced the majority of the family and made everything or rather everyone sink more clearly in my mind as to who they were and their relevance in the overall series. Just as with the Cynster Sisters this was a great and enjoyable read.

    While the story was very good, the sex scenes were way too long. I wanted to skip them to get back to the interesting story.

    I don't know if it is fair to write a review since I did not finish this one. I just couldn't get into it.

    "Pleasantly surprised!"

    This book has something for everyone! A good story with mystery and intrigue with hot chemistry between the main characters. I loved all the nicknames in the story! Although it lulled a bit in the middle I really enjoyed it. I was lucky enough to get this book on sale but I think it's definitely worth a credit!

    Story
    "The beginning of the Bar Cynster at its best"

    I read most of the Cynster novels in paperback, and now I am rediscovering them on audible and loving them just as much. I love the historical romance with a strong woman as the lead because most of the stories you hear are of the woman being meek. Never in a Laurens novel. This makes it a good book for me because I could not stand it if Honoria gave in and did not assert herself. Devil is so powerful in everything he does but Honoria posses a strong will but does not tame him, she makes him worship her.

    "NOT A GREAT NARRATION"
    Any additional comments?

    I know everyone seems to like Simon Prebble...however, he sounds too old for some of the voices and when he is reading the love scenes...it sounds like he is announcing the Kentucky Derby!!! He goes so fast, it is hard to get into the emotions of the moment. Just my opinion.

    Story
    "2nd Listen & worth it!"

    I first listened to the Cynster series several years ago. I don't believe I read this one first, but the series was nearly responsible for my obsession with HEA historical romances all on its own..... beginning in London spiraling outward from there... and backwards thru time...

    I still think that this series is wonderful, the characters strong and the plots (altho the pattern is similar...) intriguing. Stephanie Laurens has a way of weaving fun, mystery, and suspense together with love, family, and sex into a winning combination every time.

    My one negative comment is the amount of time devoted to the sex scenes... while passionate and enthralling in all the right ways... there is only so much any book needs of the same scene playing out over and again taking way too much more time than needed... I actually found my attention wandering and even skipped ahead at one point. Great scenes but c'mon....

    NARRATOR : Simon Prebble IS the voice of the Cynster males, and there is no arguing that point. His female voices aren't always all that feminine but it's easy to get used to. The only negative is that on several occasions (in any performance of his I have heard) his delivery gives the impression of a more mature, if not aged, character. But even that works out with such talented writing.

    CREDITWORTHY? : YES!!!

    HEAT FACTOR: Ouch! Steamy.....
