Teaser Tuesday 40: The Devil Who Tamed Her

Teaser Tuesdays is a weekly bookish meme, hosted by MizB of Should Be Reading. Anyone can play along! Just do the following:

* Grab a current or recent read.
* Share a few “teaser” sentences from somewhere in the book.
* BE CAREFUL NOT TO INCLUDE SPOILERS! (Make sure that what you share doesn’t give too much away. You don’t want to ruin the book for others!)
* Share the title and author so that other participants can add the book to their TBR Lists if they like your teaser!

Read in May for the 2010 Year of the Historical Challenge. Only eight more Lindseys to catch up on! This is the sequel to The Heir, featured last week.

"Patience is a virtue. Since you don't possess any—patience or any other virtues for that matter—we'll let this one be the first you learn. Practice, m'dear, beginning now."

(pg 48)

About the book:
Genre: Historical Romance

A passionate Regency-era novel in which 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. 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.

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.

Sometimes Lindsey's heroes make me want to bop them a good one on the side of the head. I tell you. But then Lindsey does it herself, so it all works out.

Heather said...

Aimee: Don't forget to add the first book, The Heir, as well. While they can stand alone, there are events in the first book that play into this one. ;)

Alice: Exactly! It's one of the things I love about her books. Her heroes always get what's coming to them, one way or another. Hehe...
