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 For a Quick Fun but Not Outstanding"
    Would you recommend this book to a friend? Why or why not?

    I would recommend if they just wanted a simple book to read


    Has Devil's Bride turned you off from other books in this genre?

    No not really


    What about Simon Prebble’s performance did you like?

    Simon Prebble was superb


    If this book were a movie would you go see it?

    No


    Any additional comments?

    This is a book for some quick fun but by no means what I would call good literature. The story isn't very good and at points gets quite redundant. The sex scenes also don't really do much to enhance the story either. It's not what I would call boring, though, and is good for a quick read.

    "Fun read!"
    Would you listen to Devil's Bride again? Why?

    Yes. I'm not a big Regency romance fan, but I loved this book. Stephanie Laurens's characters really came to life for me.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of Devil's Bride?

    There were too many to pick one I liked.


    What about Simon Prebble’s performance did you like?

    Excellent narration. I have a hearing problem, so I'm always a little leery when it comes to British narrators because I often find them difficult to understand. That wasn't the case here.

    "Stephanie Laurens - A New Favorite Author"
    Would you listen to Devil's Bride again? Why?

    Get ready to be swept away by the Cynster family. A ‘Regency- Era Historical’ novel that includes amazingly captivating characters that are smart, clever, and funny, dealing within the confines of this historic time, and presentation that society has imposed. In the first Cynster Novel, Devil’s Bride: A Cynster Novel, we meet the ravenous, sensually masculine, Sebastian. He is the eldest Cynster cousin and England’s most eligible bachelor, nicknamed Devil by his nursemaid at the age of 3.
    In comes Honoria Prudence Wetherby, a wonderfully intelligent, strong-willed woman, whom he meets during a precarious situation. He immediately determines that she, and no other, is to be his duchess. Honoria has other plans, however, and there lies the tension. Yummy!
    This is a smart novel with engaging characters. The plot is stimulating and encompasses the “thrill of passion and a tangled romance” along with the element of a “who done it” mystery. Stephanie Laurens has moved to the head of my list as one of my favorite authors. I also enjoyed listening to Simon Prebble, and felt that he did an amazing job with the narration. I have already purchased, based on this novel, the next 5 in the series.
    I know that I will not be disappointed. Over 15 hours of entertainment for 1 credit!! You can not beat it!

    The strong male lead


    What did you like best about this story?

    A fan of historical romances

    There are many great scenes in the book.

    Swoon worthy

    While the outcome is predictable (ok let's face it this is a romance novel) the ride was fun. This is also entertaining because it is part of a series about a really adventuresome family.

    "the best of Laurens"
    If you could sum up Devil's Bride in three words, what would they be?

    sexy, exciting, unforgettable.


    What other book might you compare Devil's Bride to and why?

    All of the Cynster books share the same close, strong family unity but this one leads the pack.


    Which scene was your favorite?

    When Devil knows at almost first glance that fate had put Honoria in his path.

    Story
    "Devil Has a Soft Spot, Hard Spot, Changes his Spot"

    Yes, I actually found this to be rather entertaining!

    I am most definitely NOT a Romance Novel reader. I quite happily went into this novel thinking a woman made a pact with the Devil and married him, however, I quickly found out that Devil is only a man. If you can overcome numerous references to HARD CHEST, LONG FINGERS, LONG LIPS (I must say I kept picturing long lips like a giraffe reaching down to plant a kiss), the story will catch your interest. Characters are well enough developed to create a bond with the reader. There are a few love scenes, more like very soft erotica, not as detailed as soft porn. The book is not so overwhelmingly directed toward the love scenes that the story becomes flimsy. I liked it.

    Story
    "Good Mystery Plot, Erotic"
    What made the experience of listening to Devil's Bride the most enjoyable?

    I chose this book because I was expecting a Georgette Heyer type listening. It was not!!

    Full of erotic descriptions which gave some unexpected spice, but with a good storyline running throughout. I will listen to other books by Stephanie Laurens.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of Devil's Bride?

    I thought the whole book was full of memorable moments. It has been very well written.


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

    Excellent narrative by Simon Prebble. Brought alive the passion between Devil Sinster and his lady. He read the book with enthusiasm and his voice suited the storyline with great aplomb. I would seek his narration again.


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    Yes.
