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
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.
