They called him the devil....
With his seductive golden eyes and sin-black hair, it's no wonder Lord Alex Trevegne has earned himself the sinister title - not to mention his reputation as one of the most notorious rakes in England.
And she's the only one who can conquer him....
When fate throws Alex and Elysia into a scandalous situation, Alex suddenly finds it surprisingly difficult to tear himself away from her.
As an unexpected passion blossoms between them, Elysia begins to wonder if after a lifetime of heartache she's finally found heaven in the arms of the devil.

I really enjoyed listening to this story. I do believe I read this book back in the 1970's. But wanted to give the audible a try. I liked the characters, and character development. I did think that Alex the hero of the story was a bit too hard and cold, but still likable. Elysia, the heroine, was a strong for the most part, she had her stupid moments though.
The story had a little mystery, deceit, smuggling, and romance.
There was not much dialogue in this book and would have like more, but the story was good.
Historical romance stories and writing sure has changed since the 1970's. There was sex in the book, not graphic in anyway but it was there.
For a book written almost 40 years ago it was enjoyable and entertaining.
As for the narration, she did a great job. The men sounded like men, and everyone had their own distinct voice. Marian Hussey is very pleasant and relaxing to listen too.
I got this book on my KU for free and paid 3.49 for the audible. So yes it was worth the money for sure.
