They call him the Devil Earl—a scoundrel and accused murderer who grew up on the violent London streets. A proper young lady risks more than her reputation when consorting with the roguishly handsome Lucian Langdon, but Lady Catherine Mabry believes she has no choice. To protect those she loves, she would do anything—even strike a bargain with the devil himself.
Lucian desires respectability and a wife above all else, but the woman of his choosing lacks the social graces to be accepted by the aristocracy. Catherine can help Lucian gain everything he wants. But what she asks for in exchange will put their very lives in jeopardy. When danger closes in, Catherine discovers a man of immense passion and he discovers a woman of immeasurable courage. As secrets from his dark past are revealed, Lucian begins to question everything he knows to be true, including the yearnings of his own heart.

First thought when finished: I cried! Seriously full on crocodile tears during In Bed With the Devil!
Story Thoughts: You know when you start a book and think “no way am I going to buy this story”? That was me in the beginning of In Bed With the Devil. By then end, I was totally sold and rooting very hard for the HEA. Seriously, Lorraine pretty much pulls off the impossible–she wrote a love story that started off with the guy really wanting to marry someone else. I cried, yelled, screamed, and maybe called a few names while listening. Just really fantastic all around!
Character Thoughts: Lucian and Catherine were very well suited for each other. They both bring things to the table that brings out the best in the other. I love when characters kind of “click” together to form a whole relationship. Add to that, the cast of fantastic characters surrounding them and this is just one wonderfully written character driven story. That is my favorite kind of historical romance.

I love when audiobooks have two narrators and both Susan and Antony did a fantastic job. They had very similar pacing styles which made their narration work!
Final Thoughts: If you are a historical romance fan, I highly recommend this series!
