Image of In Bed With the Devil (Scoundrels of St. James)

Master storyteller Heath perfectly threads together emotional power and
deep romance. Taking her cue from Dickens' classic Oliver Twist, she reinvents the story so we see what might have happened to the older Oliver.
Few writers engage readers' hearts and minds as beautifully as Heath
certainly does.

When Lucian Langdon, the Earl of Claybourne, aka the Devil Earl, walks into the ballroom, he catches Lady Catherine Mabry's eye. Unlike the others, she does not turn away from the man accused of murdering his uncle.

Raised on London's mean streets as one of Feagan's brood of thieves and urchin con artists, Lucian and his friends Jack and Frannie were rescued by his grandfather. To Catherine, he is the one man strong enough to save her from her ruthless guardian. But she's playing with fire when she propositions the devil. Others may fear him, but she sees his innate goodness. Catherine will do whatever she must to save him from himself and force him to believe in his right to hold the title and her heart.
