Editorial Reviews

From Booklist

Ophelia Reid may be the most beautiful woman in England, but she is also the most ill-tempered and self-centered. At least that is the conclusion Raphael Locke, Viscount Lynnfield, reaches when Ophelia breaks her engagement, again, to his friend Duncan. Rafe decides someone needs to teach Ophelia a lesson in manners, and so, after betting Duncan that he can reform the shrewish harridan, Rafe "kidnaps" Ophelia, and takes her, along with his aunt Esmeralda, to his estate in a remote corner of Northumberland. But Ophelia isn't the only one learning a lesson, when Rafe, who has successfully avoided the matchmaking clutches of the town's most determined mothers, discovers he isn't quite as immune to the idea of love as he thought. In her latest elegantly sensual Regency historical, Lindsey deftly brews up a particularly potent blend of sexy chemistry between her expertly matched hero and heroine while skillfully constructing a neat and witty plot.

Format: Hardcover
Lady Ophelia Reid is, without a doubt, the reigning beauty of the London social scene. She has the face of an angel and the haughty demeanor to back it up--combined these two qualities keep her name on the tip of every London gossip's mouth. She becomes an even bigger topic of conversation when she breaks off her engagement to a brooding Scotsman with a lofty title--twice. With rumors circulating about the cause of the broken engagement, and the realization that her so-called friends are really spiteful and vindictive, Ophelia wants nothing more than to return to London and go back about the business of finding herself a husband. With her face and notoriety, she knows that the scandal won't be off-putting to her potential suitors.

Reputed rake Raphael Locke, Viscount Lynnfield and heir to a dukedom, is friends with Ophelia's jilted ex-fiance and finds it hard to believe that such a beautiful young woman is beyond redemption. Everyone else seems willing to believe that Ophelia is a lying, manipulative rumormonger who will do anything to get her own way. Rafe, on the other hand, believes that everyone can change, and makes a bet to that effect. He vows that he can tame the shrew that Ophelia Reid has become and unleash the kinder, gentler woman who must reside underneath her haughty exterior. To that end, he absconds with her to his country estate to get to the bottom of her treachery and teach her how to act like the lady he knows she can be. Somewhere along the way, he finds himself falling for Ophelia despite his residual doubts about her true nature... is the kind-hearted, sweet girl she eventually becomes the true Ophelia, or has she always been the callous, cold-hearted ice queen that she was reputed to be?

I was re-reading The Heir just before this came out, having no clue what this new book would be about. Having read all her other books, I knew there had to be a story about Raphael Locke and Ophelia Reid. Well you can imagine my surprise when I picked up a copy of this last night! This bookw as absolutely wonderful. I finished it in one sitting, unable to put it down. I have to say that this is my favorite of all her books. You must read The Heir first though, because this book centers on Ophelia and her transformation, and knowing her background and her past evil deeds will help tremendously.

The end was very different from many of her books and I personally liked it. Most of her books tend to have slightly rushed endings, but at least this one shows you their life after the main story, which tends not to be the case in her other books where we see the main characters kiss and make up and then it's the end. This book actually has an epilogue!

I read Johanna Lindsey's "The Heir" which introduced the characters Raphael Locke and Ophelia Reid. I enjoyed their personas in that book and was thrilled that they had a story of their own finally after about 7 years.

I don't know what some of the other reviewers were talking about when they wrote that there wasn't any substance so to speak about the characters or the story-line (not in those exact words). Ophelia's character most of all evolved in a positive way from start to finish, as well as her relationships with the people in her life. She was a misunderstood person who finally had a champion (Rafe Locke) to help her see and become her true self and know the meaning of true love.

Maybe the introductory book "The Heir" (May 2000) has to be read first in order to understand the whole story behind these characters which leads to this current read. I'd recommend it, if that were the case.

Some of Johannas love scenes are very tame. This story had a good tale and the scenes were a little more PG instead of G rated ;) However my problem was I read this story out of line. To get a good grasp of the characters you need to read "The Heir" first. The two kind of take place together but "the heir" is the one that should be first. Of course you can read "the devil who tamed her" first if you would like. The spoiled brat is not so spoiled when she learns to curb her passion. The Devil has a GREAT way of helping her change her attitude! A must have if you like Johanna Lindsey!

Oh Lordy, this has to be one of the worst Romance books I've read. The characters are all hollow and lifeless, which makes the plot - character driven as it is - even worse off then the characters.

The main character, Ophelia, was a Mary Sue. The most beautiful woman in all of england, maybe even world, more beautiful then any other woman who'd ever existed? Come on now... And the whole "I'm so beautiful, everyone hates me" is so cliche it makes me choke.

Even that, though, I can understand and go along with. Romance novels don't have to be the best plot driven things. Just believable, I can make up the rest. Rafe was equally and utterly stupid for someone who is supposed to be smart. The abduction was laughable. The "change" was laughable.

The author made no attempt to breath any life into these characters. The plot was crystal clear and see through, utterly boring because it wasn't supported; the characters stupid, dull, and dead; and to add insult to injury, she wrote the characters speach in some kind of butchered english accent instead of trusting that we can fill that in for ourselves.

Don't read this book. If she's a best seller, then this can't be more then a "need to fulfil a contract" book and nothing else.
