When the devil meets an angel...
Country bred Lucy Craddock-Hayes is content with her quiet life, until the day she trips over an unconscious man - a naked unconscious man - and loses her innocence forever.
...he can take her to heaven...
Viscount Simon Iddesleigh was nearly beaten to death by his enemies. Now he's hell-bent on vengeance. But as Lucy nurses him back to health, her honesty startles his jaded sensibilities - even as it ignites a desire that threatens to consume them both.
...or to hell.
Charmed by Simon's sly wit, urbane manners, and even his red-heeled shoes, Lucy falls hard and fast for him. Yet as his honor keeps him from ravishing her, his revenge sends his attackers to her door. As Simon wages war on his foes, Lucy wages her own war for his soul, using the only weapon she has: her love.

As the finale to the princes by this author this book was disappointing. Yes you love the lady lead and you at first like the male lead but I don't think she does a good job really mixing in emotions into their relationship until the last oh say 30 minutes.
It's like they get married because she is enthralled with him but there's really no love - and since he married her for love it makes so sense. Also his prolonged anger is a bit over the top. The weakest of the books.
Climax is hardly a climax.
I love Elizabeth Hoyt books and have most of them in audio so I can't understand why a publisher/producer would take a series and go with an inexperience narrator. When will they understand that an experienced narrator makes the difference in whether a book is tolerable or great.
This narrator has a child-like voice and I could not tell who was speaking. I got through 7 chapters and had to shut it off. I so wanted to listen to all the Prince series but I will go with the written word. Rosalyn Landor, Anne Flosnik, Kate Reading or any of the experienced narrators would have done this justice.
Don't waste your credit.
tried to gift it & it was an error..

Say something about yourself!
It's a little iffy after reading this book, if I could continue reading Elizabeth Hoyt books. I really enjoyed the Four Soldier books, and enjoyed The Raven Prince, but it was like slogging thru mud reading The Serpent Prince.
The hero, Simon, irritated me when in one part of the novel he kept saying "I'm sorry". I just wanted to scream! And Lucy was just too good to be true. She didn't really have any redeeming faults.
The minor characters were more interesting than the hero and heroine!
Something different -- maybe a book by Sherrilyn Kenyon. A Night Hunter book.
Moira Quirk did fine.
The minor characters, especially Hedge and Newton.
