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.

I have never read the print version, but I did like the performance since she made the voices very distinct.
Then Came You. It had simliar time settings and had the girls trying to hide something.
Yes, I liked having a different narrator for the letters. Only thing that would have made it better is if he would have voiced him throughout the entire book since that's the voice that is introduced in the very begining.
Towards the end I didn't want to stop listening.
Of course the Earl! He was so mysterious and such a decent man I couldn't help falling in love as well!
Susan gives a great perfrmance. I love her accent and anunciation on every word. She brings characters to life with various pitches. Anthony reads the journal of the Earl which is very nice hearing a mans voice while listening to a mans thoughts
poet. coffeeshop-dinergirl. waffle lover.
The narration by Susan Ericksen and Antony Ferguson helped move the story along without distraction - a key component to enjoyment of audiobooks.
Lady Catherine - her willful nature and willingness to experience a world she is not entirely used to.
I enjoyed the journal entries read by Antony Ferguson - it offered a nice change from the rhythm of Susn Ericksen's voice.
Yes - I was glad I started listening at the beginning of a weekend.
A wonderful story, though the cover may put a few people off. Give it a chance!

There are so many twists and turns. What a great story. Catherine and Fannie's respect for one another and understanding for who was in what role without the Duke understanding even his own destiny is just romantic.
This is a romance novel without the silly, crazy, hot sex pieces. It does have heat but this is truly an organic romance story. I can't wait for story 2 although less excited about Jack's story and wish story #2 focused on the continuation of the life of the characters in book number one.
I really enjoyed this book the narrator is great and the story was suspensefull and romantic dont miss it.
I actually just wanted a light read, to do while "doing other things" so I picked out this series, and it surprised me. I actually loved the author (one I had never read before) and enjoyed the 3 books in the series.
Clever, witty, sexy and fun - and surprising. totally an enjoyable read - then had to follow the series - loved it!
Passionate romance with a gutsy heroine and sexy alpha hero for starters. Great twist on the "Oliver Twist" story line.
ISo well written...but the "Oliver Twist" angle was brilliant. The romance was both sweet and hot.
If you like Julie Garwood or Marsha Canham you will love this series. Just as the "Robin Hood" trilogy by Canham put a different spin on a great romance this series has done the same with the "Oliver Twist" spin. I highly recommend this series in both book and audio book versions. The narrators were great.
Yes. I've read several of Lorraine Heath's books and enjoyed them. This one was the worst one yet.
Anything by Suzanne Elizabeth Phillips which are more consistent.
Susan Erickson was ok but the material she had to work with was really bad.
Disappointment and disgust that I wasted the credit.
I've only listened to a few audiobooks, most of which were from the same author. They are all equally good. The performance of Susan Ericksen was beautiful.
Catherine - the way she slowly changes her opinion about Lucien and realizes his true character and actions.
Tempo of reading, diction, the clarity of pronouncement, everything I imagine. I am still a little amazed how the reader slightly changes his/her voice when speaking through different characters. I really enjoyed the performance as much as the book. English is not my native language but I had no trouble understanding the story.
No, I did not cry (there isn't much to laugh about in the book), but nevertheless there were moments when the story touched me, since the story was quite emotional. The author is very skilled, understanding of human nature and, though being a romance novel, the book was by no means shallow, or superfitial. The plot was well thought through, the actions of the characters logical and elaborated by their inner thoughts.
I highly recomend both the story and the performance. All the books in the series are as good, my favorite being Just Wicked enough.
