Beschreibung

Lucian Langdon, Earl of Claybourne, is seen by many to be beyond redemption. Dark rumors follow him and he is rarely seen in respectable circles. Which makes it all the more shocking when he appears--uninvited, of course--at one of the largest balls. But this is the perfect opportunity for Lady Catherine Mabry, who has been looking for someone with just Lucian's reputation...

Catherine is desperate. She has seen what her guardian is capable of and fears the worst. Her only hope is a man more ruthless than her uncle--a man like the Earl of Claybourne. In exchange for respectability, Catherine needs Lucian to stop her uncle one and for all. But the more she gets to know who he truly is, the more she realizes that what she asks of him will destroy the man she's come to love.

Über den Autor

When multiple New York Times bestselling author Lorraine Heath received her BA degree in psychology from the University of Texas, she had no idea she had gained a foundation that would help her create believable characters—characters often described as “real people.” The daughter of a British beauty and a Texan stationed at RAF Bovingdon, Lorraine was born in England but soon after moved to Texas. Her dual nationality has given her a love for all things British and Texan, and she enjoys weaving both heritages through her stories.

    This historical romance had a good plot and plenty of action but it was so heavy with characters ruminating that I skimmed a lot. Luke is known as the 'Devil Earl' accused of murder and Lady Catherine strikes a bargain with him believing she has no choice.

    cliched, unsatisfying and badly written. A bit like after Oliver Twist grows up, then what... Lucien Langdon was seperated from his parents and had to make do on teh streets from age 6 or so. Then through a totally contrived event, he meets with his grandfather and is reinstated (after killing his uncle? unclear on that plot point) Anyways, he is pained and wants to marry the familiar Fannie, a fellow urchin and now working at the casino he's set up. Then he meet Catherine, so good, so pure, so blagh... I didn't believe either of them and was disappointed with the book.

    Not bad, but this didn't really capture my interest like Lorraine Heath's Westerns. This is the story of Lady Catherine Mabry, an aristocratic daughter of a dying duke who is fascinated by the ne'er do well Earl of Claybourne who's life mirrors that of Oliver Twist. She seeks out the earl because of his notorious background from the streets of London to ask him for a favor - to kill her best friends abusive husband. They make a bargain. Catherine will school Annie, the girl the earl grew up with on the streets whom he intends to marry. But soon it's Catherine that he dreams of and lusts over. It gets complicated and farfetched, but I kept with it.

    3.5 Stars

    Notorious in society for his dubious origins and reputation as a killer, Lucian Langford, or the Devil Earl, is astounded when he is approached by Lady Catherine Mabry with an outrageous request. Nevertheless, he is willing to come to her aid on the condition that she return the favor. As the two set about fulfilling their respective parts of the bargain, they realize that they are bound by more than their agreement.

    An enjoyable historical romance although there are some contrived situations and predictable developments. For instance, the references to Charles Dickens's Oliver Twist are obvious, unimaginative and trite.

    While the mystery is intense and suspenseful, the resolution is not as satisfying as it could have been, and it is clear that this is not the last we've seen of the villain.

    In terms of the romance, the story contains a trope that does not usually appeal to me, i.e., the hero believes he is in love with another woman. However, Heath handles this aspect very well and the hero and heroine are both very likable as individuals and as a couple.

    All in all, a light and entertaining read and I will continue with the series possibly due to the fact that the hero in the next book, Jack, is quite the anti-hero.

    This was too good. Advise to readers: read this one before Franny’s story. I started her story and something was missing. Now I will go back to it. Great work!

    Catherine Mabry is desperate, after finding out that her closest friend is being abused, she is at her wits end. Her friend has no choice but to bear the abuse and put a smile on her face, but Catherine has different ideas about getting rid of this tormentor. She goes to the “Devil Earl” Lucian Langdon who is rumored to have killed, so she knows that he is the perfect person on the job. However when she sneaks into his residence but after sharing a sensual embrace, things start to heat up between the two. Lucian is curious by this woman’s proposition which has nothing to do with satin sheets and heated nights of passion, but to kill someone, whom he has no idea who this man is or what he has done to deserve such a thing. However he makes a deal with her, one that she won’t be able to refuse. Lucian desires the one woman he has loved all of his life to be his wife, but he needs someone to teach her to be a Earls wife and to be accepted into society, and Catherine is the perfect tutor for the job. But as things progress, dark secrets will come to life as well as a deep desire that both these two will discover, one where will help them down the precarious road of love and need.I have just loved this series, its a favorite of mine by Lorraine Heath. In Bed With The Devil is the first installment of the Scoundrels Of St James series. We have Lucian who was found at a young boy by a man called Feagen and showed him the ropes of the streets which included pick pocketing and stealing. However his grandfather found him and he learned how to become the Earl which is his heritage as well. However he has never had much interest in Society then he meets the beautiful creature Catherine who comes to him with a dangerous proposition. But what he learns is that he is falling in love with a woman he has only known a short time, alot more than the one woman he has vowed to marry. This love story is definitely filled with mystery and conflict and a heated passion that we see grows between these two characters. The interaction between these two are very amusing at time, but connect for the reader. In Bed with the Devil is a engaging read that will swirl you among a deep mystery of secrets, witty interaction, and a love story that will tie up knots in you and leaving you purely satisfied. Lorraine Heath surely delivers!!!

    Imagine Feagan's tribe from Oliver Twist growing up and becoming respectable adults. This is Lorraine Heath's clever premise, and it works quite well in this book, featuring "Oliver" (here known as Lucien Langdon, the Earl of Claybourne). He's an anguished hero who falls in love with a most proper daughter of a duke. There's love, sex, a little adventure, and a bit of a mystery.

    The narration of the audiobook by Susan Ericksen was very good. She handled all of the characters quite well. Antony Ferguson read several entries from the earl's journal, and I would love to hear him do an entire book.
