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.

Awesome

I agree with the review one of the best. Their witty conversations and their titles the lords and duchess I didn't start with book one so I listen to them backward but they are still a great listen Susan wants again knocks it out of the park she is still my favorite.

You'll Enjoy This One!

I enjoyed this audiobook from beginning to end! There's plenty of excitement throughout the book to get and keep your interest. I especially enjoyed the journal entries. They were read by the male narrator and added something extra to the book. This story was well-written. The characters are interesting and multi-dimentional.

My only critique would be a minor criticism of the narrating. Overall I thought Susan Ericksen did a wonderful job. But there were a few times, when narrating a conversation, that it was difficult to decipher between the different voices of the characters.

Other than that, I have no complaints. I greatly enjoyed this book and look forward to listening to the next book in the series.

Play the Hand You're Dealt

If you could sum up In Bed with the Devil in three words, what would they be?

Surprisingly exceptional listen.

Who was your favorite character and why?

Catherine - a heroine of courage and bravery in a time when women had little power. She followed her heart without hurting anyone in the process.

Which scene was your favorite?

The scene where Catherine left the safety of the carriage to help ward off Lucien's attackers.

Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

When Lucien forgave Jack for having any part in the death of his parents and asked him to stand with him at his wedding.

Any additional comments?

This story really surprised me because of the unexpected core that made up the characters. It's more than a "good romance" - it's a story that highlights the best of those who are forced to live in difficult times no matter what their station in life represents. It offers a "I Believe I Can Fly" basis of strength and underscores that wealth cannot buy happiness;happiness comes from within.

Good Story - OK narration

I enjoyed the storyline. The narration could have been better. But then, I am comparing it to that of Simon Prebble, and that's a tough act to follow. The narrator's voice was soothing and polished, but I had trouble distinguishing when the characters were "thinking" versus "speaking" and she didn't differentiate the voices enough to be able to tell who was who. On that note, I have heard much worse narration than this. I really enjoyed the story and have purchased the remaining three novels of the Scoundrel's of St. James.

An unremarkable book

Would you try another book from Lorraine Heath and/or Susan Ericksen and Antony Ferguson ?

No, well, maybe, if it was on sale...

Would you recommend In Bed with the Devil to your friends? Why or why not?

No. I don't have any friends that like this kind of story.

What did you like about the performance? What did you dislike?

The narrator had a good voice, but I didn't like the story overall...so that detracted from my rating. It's just not my genre...was trying out something new, and I am sure that if you like this genre you will love the book.

Could you see In Bed with the Devil being made into a movie or a TV series? Who should the stars be?

Yes, perhaps it could be a historical reality show with really, really stupid or vapid ex stars. I hesitate to mention who they should be, but the initials LL come to mind. Also Danny B.

Not as exciting as I would have liked

The writing was good (good grammar and choice of words) but I just did not get as engaged as I would have liked. I don't know if it was the story of if it was just my mood at the time, but the book just did not do it for me.

Enjoyed Very Much!

What made the experience of listening to In Bed with the Devil the most enjoyable?

I thought the story was very well written. I also enjoyed the narration - I will have to look for more stories narrated by Susan Ericksen.

a worthwhile read!

I was looking for a good story to while away the weekend and was in luck.

After not being able to complete several books due to poor narration, this narrator was laudable and kept my interest in the story to the end.

Worth a try!

This is not an honest star rating...

I cannot give this story an honest rating since the the narration is so bad I could not finish the book. So I am not sure if the story is good or not. Sorry I am not much help here other than the narration is just awful.
