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.

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.

it hard for me to review.

I like the story even if it was a little dumb. I didn't like the child like voice she had. I like it even those I know must people won't.

EXCELLANT NARRATION

NEVER JUDGE A BOOK BY ITS COVER!!

After reading bk1 The Heir I thought I would hate Lady Opehlia Reid daughter of an Earl. She was a mean girl. Stuck on her beauty and spoiled. But Johanna Lindsey did an Amazing Job showing you the how and why Opehlia was none of these things.

I loved the romance between Opehlia and Viscount Raphael/Rafe Locke Heir to a very rich and powerful dukedom.

The story moves fast I love the characters and Rafe and Opehlia HEA! This story will go on my re read list!!
