Publisher's Summary

Ophelia Reid is an incomparable beauty with a reputation for starting rumors and spreading them. Having purposely wrecked her engagement to Duncan MacTavish, a future marquis, which her social-climbing father arranged, Ophelia wants to return to London's marriage mart and make her own choice of a wealthy husband.

But on her journey home, something unexpected happens. The heir to a dukedom, Raphael Locke, Viscount Lynnfield is - in spite of his disinterest in marriage - the most sought-after young lord in England. He instantly disliked Ophelia when she caused a scandal to avoid marriage to his friend MacTavish, but having comforted her in a tearful moment, he begins to wonder if she's not all bad. So when MacTavish claims that Ophelia will never be anything but a spiteful beauty, Rafe bets his best friend that he can turn her into a kind-hearted lady who will one day make a good match, just not with him.

With her parents' blessing, Rafe commandeers Ophelia's coach and whisks her - chaperoned, of course - to his remote estate in the countryside. There, as he tries to show his furious, sharp-tongued "guest" the error of her ways, he discovers the surprising reasons for her bad behavior.

Soon his daily lessons with Ophelia take effect and he finds himself irresistibly attracted to her. When Rafe champions the new and improved Ophelia's re-entry to London society, marriage proposals pour in. Only then does Rafe start to wonder whether he hasn't gone and fallen in love with Ophelia himself.

What the Critics Say

"In her latest elegantly sensual Regency historical, Lindsey deftly brews up a particularly potent blend of sexy chemistry between her expertly matched hero and heroine while skillfully constructing a neat and witty plot." (Booklist)

    "The Devil Who Tamed Her"

    I have over 300 audio books from Audible, and this is the 1st time I've written a Review. However, I enjoyed this book so immensely that I feel compelled to write this review so that others can also experience that enjoyment. I'm a Johanna Lindsey fan; others who also appreciate her books will find this a treasure! I only wish it had been longer; the overall situation was unique, characters are well developed and makes one want to know more about them (Rafe's family particularly). Ophelia and Rafe, whose intricately woven personalities draw one into the story, are ..... well, I don't want to tell too much! Discovering who they are and how they interact gives this book much of it's charm! I hope Audible will be able to make available more of J.L.'s titles.

    I'm a very simple person who love to read or listen to books. My favorite genre is Historical Romance but am willing to spread my wings and fly temporarily over to sample a little young adult adventure or suspense, but I will without fail, return to romance..

    Story
    "Oh what a tangled web we weave..."

    Do you remember that saying from childhood? Oh what a tangled web we weave, if at first we try to deceive....Ophelia Reed was never taught not to lie as a child but will she learn that lesson as an adult?
    Beauty can take you only so far in life, you also need compassion, understanding and love to take you the remainder of the way.
    If you want to know if Ophelia's evil ways and incomparable beauty prevented her from achieving her dreams, then I recommend you downloading The Devil Who Tamed Me...

    "Classic Taming of the Shrew story with a surprise"

    This story begins a second line in a trilogy so it continues a really good tale of the THE HEIR. It was a lot more engrossing then I anticipated. I really did not see the surprise ending coming and enjoyed the twist to the classic story. I will definitely be moving on the the third book.

    Raif seemed more than just a do-gooder on a power-trip. It seems from the beginning that he really does care about her as a person before he fails for her person.

    "glad it was on the sale table"

    I used to enjoy this author so perhaps my taste has changed over the years. The reader made the mediocre story even worse by growling the male characters.

    Not Guildford! NYC, and damn proud of it. My mother's tongue used to cleave to the roof of her mouth from reading to me, now i pay others.

    "Wooden Twaddle"

    I enjoy a good yarn and joyfully anticipated listening to this historical recobble of the Pygmalian tale.
    Phooee. Stinks like yesterday's diapers.
    You are plunked into the middle of a purposeless mess where wooden characters bang randomly off eachother like a pinball game.
    It's boring. It trite. The plot is predictible only because we've read this 100 times before. The characters do not behave like people. They behave like automatons going through the motions.
    And the ultimate thing I can say about this experience is WHO CARES. You want to care about at least one of the characters. I am putting my money on the ancient retainer of the widowed aunt. He's got the most vim of the lot of them.
    Would that they had an audio version of the 2 books Kathryn Harvey wrote.
    Oh, yes. Finally. The woman they hired to do the reading. Her upper class English accent is punctuated by a New Jersey twang that sneaks through ever so often. That takes the biscuit.
    Leave this one alone.
