Townsfolk called him devil. For dark and enigmatic Julian, Earl of Ravenwood, was a man with a legendary temper and a first wife whose mysterious death would not be forgotten. Some said the beautiful Lady Ravenwood had drowned herself in the black, murky waters of Ravenwood Pond. Others whispered of foul play and the devil's wrath.Now country-bred Sophy Dorring is about to become Ravenwood's new bride. Drawn to his masculine strength and the glitter of desire that burned in his emerald eyes, the tawny-haired lass had her own reasons for agreeing to a marriage of convenience.

The other reason was dearer to her heart, but just as wild a quest: Sophy Dorring intended to teach the devil to love again.

But one scene has been kept on my mind all the time: when Sophy drugs Julian when he wanted to consummate their marriage. I found that scene very witty, and Julian tot...
Adorei!!!Pela primeira vez eu leio um livro em que o casal de mocinhos realmente enfrentam os seus problemas de relacionamento como um casal normal.
