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.

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.

    "5+ stars! So far beyond my expectations!!"

    Wow. I never expected this story to be so good. More than good. There is more depth, passion, love and friendship than I ever imagined. The story is magnificent with a real plot and wonderful characters. The growth of these characters is well-written, and the plot is very unique and powerful. It does not feel contrived; instead, there is a true story here with twists and turns that make In Bed With the Devil a "stay up all night" sort of book... :)

    This is my second Lorraine Heath. I didn't like the Outlaw and the Lady, so I was hesitant to listen to this. I've owned this audiobook for nearly two years. But what a treat when I finally gave it a chance!

    Added to the great writing is the amazing talent of Susan Ericksen. (the male narrator only reads a few journal entries.) She is one of the all time great narrators, and she brought this story to life beautifully. Honestly the reason I gave Heath another chance was bc of Susan Ericksen.

    This audiobook deserves every star. And I highly recommend it to fans of Lisa Kleypas, Julia Quinn, Eloisa James, Elizabeth Hoyt...really any Historical Romance lover.

    As for the sensuality level of the book: it is less steamy that Elizabeth Hoyt, but far more than Julia Quinn. The chemistry between the Hero and Heroine is sizzling. Lorraine Heath delivers the perfect balance of passion and friendship, turning what begins as lust to the truest love. Thus she leaves her readers very satisfied!!! :)

    I already have the second book of this series downloaded and I'm ready for more! ❤❤❤

    Story
    "Exceeded my expectations..."

    I have that happy satisfied feeling of finding a new series (new for me) that I Absolutely love. It's a moving story with unexpected twists. It does have some back stories about rape, murder and domestic violence but it wasn't too graphic. Although this is a romance, the're many things happening that are very interesting.

    What I loved the most about the story is the way the author developed the relationship between Catherine and Luke. There was instant attraction but they were friends first and slowly their friendship developed into intense love. This audiobook was so worth the money and it's one I will definitely listen to again.

    Narration: this is the first book I've listed to that has been narrated by Susan Ericksen. I found her voice and accent very appropriate. There wasn't a really marked difference between the male and female voices but it did not take away from the story. You could still tell when a different character was speaking.

    For me this was a Historical Romance five star listen and I'm ready to start book 2 immediately.

    When I clean, drive or exercise I listen to romance. The steamier the better but it must have a great story as well!

    Story
    "Sometimes you don't realize what you want"

    This was an easy book to listen to. I listened as I did my spring cleaning, not giving it my full attention, but was able to enjoy the story. It was not a wholly original type of story, instead a historical romance that follows much the same plot as many others. The Lord of mystery and the Lady that does not seek to marry for fear that it will take away from her freedom. However their were a few differences in the ways that bring this couple together. I found this to be an credible historical romance without much make it above the ordinary. Okay but not extraordinary, still worth a read if you enjoy predictable yet steady romance. The love scenes were not shocking or exorbitant. Overall a pleasant read.

    "Great Series"

    I listened to this series a while ago and am just getting around to writing my reviews for it. I listened again to refresh my memory and I have to say that I enjoyed it the second time around just as much.

    This is a very well written book with good in-depth characters and a detailed plot. I loved how the two main characters gradually developed from friends to lovers. The story is allowed to develop a little slower to allow a more detailed captivating story. If you enjoy historical romances with substance that's not too fluffy....then you will like this one.

    "great first book in series"

    So glad to find this series. Have listened to other books by this author, this one did not disappoint. There is more depth to these characters than some other typical romances. Very interesting plot twists, and the characters are well developed. I do like this time period also, as the industrial revolution starts to impact the traditional world of the aristocrats. The blending of two worlds, and how that comes about, makes for interesting listening. Did enjoy the narrator. Only reason I didn't give 5 stars was that sometimes it was difficult to differentiate between a couple characters. Overall though she does a fabulous job. Can't wait to listen to the next one in this series.

    "convincing Victorian romance"

    Damsel in distress and a gentleman in disguise. Known plot in a refreshingly new packaging. Enjoyable from the first minute to the very end. Good narration though a times I found it a bit too forced. Still, highly recommendable.

    "Fantastic new series"
    What did you love best about In Bed with the Devil?

    A romantic twist blending this story with Oliver Twist.
    The Characters and the plot, lots of twists and turns.
    You really didn't know where this story was going to the very end!
    Can't wait for the rest of the books


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

    I loved Anthony Ferguson, as Luke, reading excerpts from his diary


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

    I was very weepy as the book drew to a close, the story could have gone either way, and you just wanted it to work out with Catherine and Luke.


    Any additional comments?

    A great book, can't wait for book 2 about Dodger.

    Story
    "What the Dickens?"

    Despite the boring narration and the too numerous mentions and/or parallels to "Oliver Twist" I still really enjoyed this book. I cared about the main characters and the story was interesting. Even though there were several unbelievable parts, I still found myself rooting for the main couple. Overall it was worth a credit, but I'm glad I got it on sale instead.
