Johanna Lindsey presents a sparkling, passionate Regency-era novel 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. Having purposely wrecked her engagement to Duncan MacTavish, a future marquis, which her social-climbing father arranged, Ophelia wants to return to London's marriage mart and make herown choice of a wealthy husband. But on her journey home, somethingunexpected happens.... 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. With her parents' blessing, Rafe commandeers Ophelia's coach and whisks her -- chaperoned, of course -- to his remote estate in the countryside. There, as he tries to show his furious, sharp-tongued "guest" the error of her ways, he discovers the surprising reasons for her bad behavior. Soon his daily lessons with Ophelia take effect and he finds himself irresistibly attracted to her. 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, The Devil Who Tamed Her is proof positive why Johanna Lindsey is among the most widely read and best-loved authors of our time.

Okay, this author is really starting to annoy me to death. If she describes how Sabrina (wonderful name :) but I'm not being bias due to that) is not a beauty and basically calling her ugly one more freaking time; I'm going to burn every book I see of hers. The story, for the most part, seems alrigh...
Entertaining read. Heroine much more likable in this story than the first of the series. Loved the romance; the kisses were very lovely. Liked the horse race scene best.
I liked parts of this, but they hate me because I'm beautiful? I get her being a brat because of the way her father has done things, but you can be beautiful and have true friends. You just have to be a wonderful person on the inside. I really wanted to have Gibbs from NCIS just randomly appear in ...
This was one good relaxing book and i finished it after a few hours.This is the second book by Johanna Lindsey which I read and I can't say that I'm disappointed, because I enjoyed reading it a lot.

Hero makes it clear though that he's not ready for marriage & his goal for her is to marry her off to so...
