In Bed with the Devil | [Lorraine Heath]

In Bed with the Devil

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.

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.

    "Suprisingly Endearing to the End"
    Would you consider the audio edition of In Bed with the Devil to be better than the print version?

    I have never read the print version, but I did like the performance since she made the voices very distinct.


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

    Then Came You. It had simliar time settings and had the girls trying to hide something.


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

    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.


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

    Towards the end I didn't want to stop listening.

    "Very captivating"
    Who was your favorite character and why?

    Of course the Earl! He was so mysterious and such a decent man I couldn't help falling in love as well!


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

    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

    "Excellent narration, impelling story"
    What made the experience of listening to In Bed with the Devil the most enjoyable?

    The narration by Susan Ericksen and Antony Ferguson helped move the story along without distraction - a key component to enjoyment of audiobooks.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    Lady Catherine - her willful nature and willingness to experience a world she is not entirely used to.


    Which character – as performed by Susan Ericksen and Antony Ferguson – was your favorite?

    I enjoyed the journal entries read by Antony Ferguson - it offered a nice change from the rhythm of Susn Ericksen's voice.


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

    Yes - I was glad I started listening at the beginning of a weekend.


    Any additional comments?

    A wonderful story, though the cover may put a few people off. Give it a chance!

    "Fabulous Mystery Romance"

    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.

    "Loved 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.

    Story
    "VT. FAN"
    What did you love best about In Bed with the Devil?

    Passionate romance with a gutsy heroine and sexy alpha hero for starters. Great twist on the "Oliver Twist" story line.


    What did you like best about this story?

    ISo well written...but the "Oliver Twist" angle was brilliant. The romance was both sweet and hot.


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

    Both


    Any additional comments?

    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.

    Story
    "Not Lorraine's best"
    Would you try another book from Lorraine Heath and/or Susan Ericksen and Antony Ferguson ?

    Yes. I've read several of Lorraine Heath's books and enjoyed them. This one was the worst one yet.


    What do you think your next listen will be?

    Anything by Suzanne Elizabeth Phillips which are more consistent.


    How could the performance have been better?

    Susan Erickson was ok but the material she had to work with was really bad.


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

    Disappointment and disgust that I wasted the credit.

    Story
    "excellent first audio book"
    Where does In Bed with the Devil rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    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.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    Catherine - the way she slowly changes her opinion about Lucien and realizes his true character and actions.


    What about Susan Ericksen and Antony Ferguson ’s performance did you like?

    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.


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

    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.


    Any additional comments?

    I highly recomend both the story and the performance. All the books in the series are as good, my favorite being Just Wicked enough.
