The Methodist and the highwayman: heaven, meet hell…
Her pious father’s murder leaves Faith Montague orphaned and lost on the dangerous road to London , only to be rescued by a notorious highwayman. Morgan de Lacy, a lawless rake with the bearing of a nobleman, treats her finer than those who should have loved and protected her. Recognizing a fine gem when he sees one, de Lacy sets about seducing his orphaned companion. His caresses incite passion…his fiery kisses tantalize, and Faith is in peril of losing herself to temptation.
She may be the brash Irishman’s captive, but pride will not allow her to surrender to a man whose lust for revenge terrifies her.
Rating: A- for narration; B for content
Mary Jane Wells is a narrator relatively new to the world of historical romance, but she has already earned herself a place on my “narrators to trust” shelf. Her performance in Simone St. James’ recent Silence for the Dead was terrific, and I enjoyed listening to her in Sarah MacLean’s Ten Ways to be Adored When Landing a Lord, so she’s now someone whose name I regularly put into the search box at Audible when I’m looking for new books to listen to. I requested Devil’s Lady for review solely because Ms Wells is the narrator, and I’m pleased to report that she more than met my expectations.
