Publisher's Summary

What's a girl to do when her father, known as Devil Desmond, is one of the most infamous rogues in all of England?

Delilah Desmond is not happy. To provide for her, her father has sold his memoirs, filled with scandalous and embarrassing exploits - effectively ruining her chances for a suitable marriage, so she can support her family while saving her father from disgrace.

But it seems the manuscript is in demand by all sorts of unscrupulous persons, and preventing its publication is going to be impossible; especially now that it has been stolen.

Can the hot-tempered Delilah and her very unwilling accomplice - absent-minded, bookish, Jack Langdon with his soft grey eyes and tousled hair - salvage the disaster? It appears that deceptively quiet Jack may have a core of steel - and be the one man smart and strong enough to be the hero she'd been hoping for all along.

Another great story from Loretta Chase

Ignoring the poor production quality is a must. I really wanted Jack to stop being so proper in Viscount Vagabond and felt bad for him when he lost the girl. So I really enjoyed that he gets his own story and all his moments of "losing his cool" in The Devil's Delilah. I found it quite comical that Delilah could really get under his skin and shake up his composure. It was a fun story and as always the dialogue really draws you in.

Not one of Chase's best

This book was missing what I've come to love in Loretta Chase's books - the witty banter. Yes, there was a tiny bit of it toward the end but I found this book tedious to reach that end. The story never grabbed me. The characters, frankly, annoyed me. The audio quality was poor although the narration was quite good (and I am thankful it WAS available as an audiobook.) Not my favorite Chase book but I still really enjoy her work.

A truly wonderful regency romance

Where does The Devil's Delilah rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

This is the way regency romances used to be -- or should be. Full of manners and conversation. A little adventure. Great characters. And subtle, delicious humor.

Who was your favorite character and why?

I liked all the characters, but relate most to Delilah. She's trying so hard to be a 'society miss' , but her strong intelligence, self reliance and temper get in the way. Jack is a wonderful hero, showing that not all heroes have to rakes. I especially appreciated the dry wit of Devil Desmond, Delilah's father.

A great series

Have you listened to any of Stevie Zimmerman’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

I always enjoy listening to Steve Zimmerman. He is one of my favourite narrators.

Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

I did

Highly entertaining!

Any additional comments?

I was very much looking forward to another Loretta Chase audiobook. She never disappoints and this was highly entertaining, full of humor and utterly enchanting. I am very, very much looking forward to the Carsington Series and the rest of the Scoundrels Series!!
