Johanna Lindsey presents a sparkling, passionate Regency-era novel in which

a beautiful but ruthless gossip meets her match in a dashing rake who sets

out to change her wicked ways. Featuring two enthralling characters from

the unforgettable bestseller The Heir, The Devil Who Tamed Her

is a spirited new tale about the transforming power of true love.

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 friend

that he can turn her into a kindhearted 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.

Wondrously romantic, passionate, and delightfully humorous, The Devil

Who Tamed Her is proof positive why Johanna Lindsey is among the most

widely read and best-loved authors of our time.
