Publisher's Summary

They call him the Devil Earl - a scoundrel and accused murderer who grew up on the violent London streets. A proper young lady risks more than her reputation when consorting with the roguishly handsome Lucian Langdon, but Lady Catherine Mabry believes she has no choice. To protect those she loves, she would do anything - even strike a bargain with the devil himself.

Lucian desires respectability and a wife above all else, but the woman of his choosing lacks the social graces to be accepted by the aristocracy. Catherine can help Lucian gain everything he wants. But what she asks for in exchange will put their very lives in jeopardy. When danger closes in, Catherine discovers a man of immense passion and he discovers a woman of immeasurable courage. As secrets from his dark past are revealed, Lucian begins to question everything he knows to be true, including the yearnings of his own heart.

    "A VERY GOOD LISTEN!!!"
    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    Yes, I'd definitely recommend this book to a friend. This was my first book by Lorraine Heath, and it won't be my last. It has a very good story and a good romance. I'm so glad that this is the first in the series. I LOVE a good historical romance series!


    What other book might you compare In Bed with the Devil to and why?

    The book reminds me a little of the Rohan series by Anne Stuart, but that might be because it had the same narrator. Although it is about a supposedly bad person finally being recognized as good by the 'ton'.


    What did you like about the performance? What did you dislike?

    I think Susan Ericksen was perfect for this book although I think she has done a better job on other books. Sometimes I had a difficult time keeping the voices/characters straight because she didn't alter her voice enough. I've not had that problem with her narrations in the past.


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

    No.


    Any additional comments?

    Moving onto the next book in this series. I tend to listen to mostly books that are in a series and I like series best when characters reappear in each book. I hope I won't be disappointed with the next books in this series.

    "I WANT MY MONEY BACK!"
    What disappointed you about In Bed with the Devil?

    The Narrator sucks. I can't tell the difference between the hero and the heroine. I mean, she tried but she made the hero sound horrible!!! Plus, The story, overall, is stupid! Stupid to the very end! The love story in this book totally sucks. Actually, there really is no love story in here. Hero thinks he's in love with another woman, other woman not in love with him, and heroine is in love with hero even though he thinks he's strongly in love with the other woman. Heroine still went after him even though she knows he's in love with someone else. She went as far as sleeping with him, too. Gah!


    Would you ever listen to anything by Lorraine Heath again?

    NOPE!


    Who would you have cast as narrator instead of Susan Ericksen and Antony Ferguson ?

    I thought it was SUSAN DUERDAN! I would have prefer her! Anthony Ferguson is good.


    What reaction did this book spark in you? Anger, sadness, disappointment?

    DISAPPOINTMENT all the way


    Any additional comments?

    Don't buy! Waste of money and time!

    What made the experience of listening to In Bed with the Devil the most enjoyable?

    I thought the story was very well written. I also enjoyed the narration - I will have to look for more stories narrated by Susan Ericksen.

    "a worthwhile read!"

    I was looking for a good story to while away the weekend and was in luck.

    After not being able to complete several books due to poor narration, this narrator was laudable and kept my interest in the story to the end.

    Worth a try!

    I love Epic Fantasy....have become a Historical Romance fan because I am a sucker for a good Happily Ever After. Good characters are a must

    "Excellent story and great chemistry"

    Lady Catherine is easy to like as a heroine. Lucian is delicious all the way around! There was great chemistry between the hero and heroine. The storyline was a little different with some twists and turns to keep you interested. I would have liked to see Luke and Lady Catherine get together romantically a bit sooner in the book, because once they do ...it gets nice and heated. Not burning hot, but plenty steamy. I can't wait for the next book....starting it today! Worth a credit!

    "Great Romantic Tale"
    If you could sum up In Bed with the Devil in three words, what would they be?

    Romance, adventure, perfect


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    I couldn't choose just one. The whole cast of characters are developed well, very believable and all necessary to make the plot work.


    What does Susan Ericksen and Antony Ferguson bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    Their voices bring the story to life, I can shut my eyes and envision every scene.


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

    For all practical purposes, I did. I didn't want to put it down!


    Any additional comments?

    I have an extensive romantic library. This is the first book I've ever given a perfect score! Well worth the credit or the purchase. I can't wait to read the next book in the series.

    "I'm Hooked!"

    Though I've only read one romance novel in my life and found it fun but cheesy, this book had my attention from the second I finished reading its description. I couldn't resist the story line of a gang of scoundrels, murder, love, and dark secrets from the past. From the minute it began I was instantly hooked and finished it w/in 2 days. The story was SOOO good and I was in suspense the ENTIRE time. There aren't many books that keep me hanging on every word, but this certainly was one. Without being boring, it was incredibly descriptive and enabled me to to see every word like I was watching a movie.

    Until this book I have never heard of Lorraine Heath, but now I seriously cant wait to listen to all the other books in this series. Its hard to imagine the idea of loving any of them as much as I did this one, but hearing the stories of all the other scoundrels will be exciting in itself.

    As far as narration, I have to say Susan Ericksen was good. She had a lot of passion and spunk, and she definitely gave personality to each character. It would have been nice to hear a bit of a change in her voice from character to character, but her attitude made up for it. Antony Ferguson's parts were rough. His accent was weird and his performance was flat, but he only spoke a few minutes here and there so it wasn't a big deal.

    Even if you're not much for romance novels/cheesy sex scenes this book is absolutely worth the listen for mystery, suspense, and intrigue alone. The romance was woven in really well, which is why I didn't feel like I was listening to a dirty romance novel. Think Oliver Twist/Lies of Lock Lamora meets your favorite romantic dromedy.

    "I was disappointed. Usually love Heath's novels."

    "Hero" wanted to marry one woman, but was having sex with another. Catherine, the "heroine" was helping the intended fiancé but still plotting to romantically be with the "hero". Sorry desperate woman and a man who wants his cake and wants to eat it too.
