Publisher's Summary

Meet the blue-eyed devil: His name is Hardy Cates. He's a self-made millionaire who comes from the wrong side of the tracks. He's made enemies in the rough-and-tumble ride to the top of Houston's oil industry. He's got hot blood in his veins - and vengeance on his mind.

Meet the heiress: She's Haven Travis. Despite her family's money, she refuses to set out on the path they've chosen for her. But when Haven marries a man her family disapproves of, her life is set on a new and dangerous course. Two years later, Haven comes home, determined to guard her heart. And Hardy Cates, a family enemy, is the last person she needs darkening her door or setting her soul on fire.

Watch the sparks fly: filled with Lisa Kleypas' trademark sensuality, filled with characters you love to hate and men you love to love, Blue-Eyed Devil will hold you captive in its storytelling power as the destiny of two people unfolds with every magical word.

    "Couldn't stop listening."

    Wow! This book was better than SugarDaddy. I couldn't stop listening to it. The characters, Hardy and Haven, were great and the chemistry hot, hot, hot. I highly recommend this book.

    "Ble-eyed Devil"

    Wow what a book. I was capitivated from the very beginning. Parts were sultry and well done. For me, I'd describe it as a gripping love story... and so much more. The reader was quite good and kept me very interested. I'd highly recommend it. This was my first experience with this author. (Lisa Kleypas) I will look for another one of her books immediately.

    "Enjoyed It!"

    It is entertaining, it is worth it. i felt like it was slow in the beggining, or may be it was the narrator. (I had finish a great narrated book prior to this one), But i was soon hooked. Definetly, not a waste of money.

    "Absolutely MAGICAL!"

    I loved this second book in the series ! I fond it even better than the first book. This book gets you hooked from the start . Amazing story, and dialogue . The most enchanting in the story in the main characters. The hero is one of my best heroes ever ! What I love about Lisa's work is that she creates a full community of people that participate in the story effectively. The narration was not up to the level of the book. I liked the narrator of the first book compared to this narrator. But still you will complete this book with a smile on your face :) enjoy :)

    I ignore genre labels. Some of my favorite books are outside my genre comfort zone. Listening to audiobooks is still reading. Not theater.

    Story
    "Please put these people out of our misery."

    The heroine is a depressing basket case, so whiny and weak I found myself wishing I could reach out and slap her myself. And the hero was so angst-ridden he was totally unbelievable. This had the potential to be a good story. But the main character was a total wimp, and the tough guy hero was so tortured that together they would suck the air out of any room. I don't know if they would have come across so pathetic with a different narrator. For this book the voice plus the characters equaled fingernails down a chalkboard. By the time she got some backbone near the end, it was too late, and even with backbone she still sounded like she was on heavy duty tranquilizers. And he became increasingly stupid.

    I can usually deal with two or three episodes per book when a character fails say the one thing that would resolve so much conflict, that would make the other characters make more sense, or something that would move the story along. In this book though, I lost track of the times I wanted to shout - "Just spit it out!"

    The book actually dealt with a serious subject - spousal abuse and rape. I realize these subjects can't be treated lightly or humorously. But it was hard to work up any empathy, much less sympathy for anyone in this book.

    I had already read the book before, which made the hero of this book come across as much more interesting and worth knowing. I had already read the book after this one as well, which includes the main characters of this book. I was looking forward to reading their story. Instead I almost stopped reading this every few pages, but something kept me going. I wish now I had stopped.

    "love this story"

    it was nice to see Hardy get his chance
    The subject could be difficult for some to hear about. I was not surprised at the happy ending, I mean, it is why I read romance but, for slot of woman abuse is still a very real part of Life for themselves and their children.

    "Great story, Horrible narrator!!"
    Would you try another book from Lisa Kleypas and/or Renée Raudman?

    I will absolutely buy more books from Lisa but will actively avoid books narrated by Renee Raudman.


    What other book might you compare Blue-Eyed Devil to and why?

    I would really have preferred this book done by Emily Durante who narrated Smooth Talking Stranger.


    How did the narrator detract from the book?

    The way she voiced all of the characters just ruined the book for me. I couldn't even finish this book because her voice kept me from getting into the story. Her accent was horrible. Every part of her narration was bad. This audiobook was a complete waste of a credit.


    Any additional comments?

    If you like the series, read this book in any other format and you will love it. I promise that the narrator of Smooth Talking Stranger is amazing and you won't regret the purchase.

    "My Kinda Book"

    I love this series of books by Lisa Kleypas. For one thing they are set in Texas, my home state. She used three different narrators and they all did a great job. They are love stories which I am a sap for. I have gotten different books by Lisa Kleypas but have not enjoyed them as much as I have the books that I have gotten that are narrated by Renee Raudman, Jeannie Stith and Emily Durante. You can have a great book but if the narrator is not that good it can ruin it. Wish Lisa Kleypas would write some more sequels to this series.
