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.
The description intrigued me so I got this out of the library. I enjoyed the story line and I adored Catherine's courage and independent personality! She's not like other girls her age and she likes it that way. She is a great friend and that is why she goes to Luke's house and asks him to do an evil deed for her. Their attraction started years earlier when Luke went to a ball and she was the only one to dare look at him. Their romance is wonderful! Every meeting amps up their feelings and they both won't admit its anything but lust. Luke's road to remembering his past is hard but in the end rewarding! I enjoyed the other characters in this story and I really can not wait to see what happens to them! Very promising new series for me!
