Cold-Hearted Rake by Lisa Kleypas (Audio Edition)

Narrated by: Mary Jane Wells
Series: The Ravenels #1
♥ ♥ ♥  I had high hopes for this book… because .. well.... it's Lisa Kleypas! Sadly, I found Kathleen hard to like. She seemed spiteful and rather bitchy to me. I am all for sticking to the rules of proprietary but when she did it, it just grated on my nerves.. and I am not sure why.

Devon was demanding and possessive (again normally things I don't mind) but I really couldn't feel the chemistry between these two. Kinda felt like she truly disliked him one minute then did an about face for no apparent reason.

The plot was good though, I enjoyed the storyline and I really enjoyed the secondary characters. West was funny and the slight romance blossoming between Helen and Rhys Winterbourne was one of the main reasons I kept reading.

The narrator was clear and easy to listen too. I am looking forward to the next book in the series: Marrying Winterbourne.

The Blurb:

A twist of fate . . .

Devon Ravenel, London's most wickedly charming rake, has just inherited an earldom. But his powerful new rank in society comes with unwanted responsibilities . . . and more than a few surprises. His estate is saddled with debt, and the late earl's three innocent sisters are still occupying the house . . . along with Kathleen, Lady Trenear, a beautiful young widow whose sharp wit and determination are a match for Devon's own.

A clash of wills . . .

Kathleen knows better than to trust a ruthless scoundrel like Devon. But the fiery attraction between them is impossible to deny—and from the first moment Devon holds her in his arms, he vows to do whatever it takes to possess her. As Kathleen finds herself yielding to his skillfully erotic seduction, only one question remains:

Can she keep from surrendering her heart to the most dangerous man she's ever known?
