I've read many Johanna Lindsey books (most of which I've loved), but I wasn't initially planning on reading The Devil Who Tamed Her because I'd heard from a few friends that the characters in it are very unlikeable. BUT one day I was in the book store looking for a Johanna Lindsey book that I hadn't yet read and this was the only one on the shelf at the time, so I decided to give it a try anyway. I'm so glad I gave this book a chance, because I absolutely loved it!

The characters and plot weren't interesting enough.

It was a bedroom, after all. The proper form would have been to ask Esmeralda instead. But Ophelia hadn’t hesitated. But Ophelia hadn’t hesitated etiquette could be suspended for the duration as far as she was concerned. And that was all the reasoning and logic she needed to proceed down the path of ruination, as it were. The thought amused her, since she didn’t for a moment think that any such thing would happen if she dallied a bit with the next Duke of Norford. They were too secluded here. And he’d seen to it that she had a proper chaperone.

The passion that Johanna Lindsey always shows in the characters she creates is amazing and the tention is there throughout the book. I loved "The Devil Who Tamed Her" and can't wait for more books from Johanna Lindsey.

Talk about The Devil Who Tamed Her


unmasked
Another winning storyline from a master storyteller. This was an exceptional storyline with exciting characters and lots of romance, my favorite things in a great story.
Definitely a five-star rating for this book, it's a classic and one to be read over and over again.

The title of this book is The Devil Who Tamed Her by Johanna Lindsey. Some of the conversations and events were illogical and unjustified. The characters and plot weren't interesting enough. In addition, I was hoping to read about some creative and exciting methods of changing a person, for example: the interaction between Helen Keller and her teacher in The Miracle Worker, or Eliza Doolittle in My Fair Lady. This story wasn't even close. There were a few discussions similar to counseling sessions with a psychologist and then deciding it's better to be nice than not. In addition, the psychologist learns she wasn't so bad after all. I was let down due to my own expectations. Ok, so maybe I'm asking a little too much. Those stories are classics. But at least give me some wittiness or creativity.

CAUTION SPOILERS:
Rafe made a bet with Duncan that he could change a mean-spirited, rude shrew (Ophelia) into a sweet-tempered, likeable person. His method of curing her consisted of a few talking sessions in which he asked her to explain certain mean things she had done in the past. Most of her explanations showed that she had honorable intentions and only on a couple of occasions did she do something mean out of anger or jealousy. In truth she was a victim more often than not. During these sessions, Rafe told her his goal was to fix her and then return her to London. After the initial shock, she was ok with this. She and Rafe began enjoying each other, becoming friends and even more than friends. She returned to London and started treating people with consideration and enjoyed seeing it returned to her for a change. Someone mentioned to her that Rafe had done this on a bet. Then, she became furious with Rafe. He explained to her that it started on a bet, but his intentions quickly became honest and caring. He genuinely wanted to help her, and he did. I think she should have accepted this with humor and gratefulness for how it all turned out. Instead he and she did some things I didn't care for or didn't make sense. Some examples follow.

When Ophelia and Rafe first returned to London, she was happier, treated people better, and was glad for the experience with Rafe. Later when she learned he began this on a bet, she thought "he'd turned her life upside down for a stupid wager, and there was nothing that he could say to make that more palatable" (page 266). I don't think her life was turned upside down. She was wrong to be so angry and to do things to him out of this anger.

Some people had observed three events: seeing them leave a party together in a coach without a proper chaperone and being gone for a week, seeing them kiss, and Rafe claiming the first dance with her at a ball on her second night back (page 255). Rumors began that they were engaged. Rafe asked his father if Ophelia had started the rumors, but his father said no, these were events observed by independent people. Later, Ophelia told Rafe she started these rumors because she was mad when learning about the bet. Rafe then believed she started the rumors, but his father had told him that independent people saw these events, so his new belief that Ophelia started the rumors didn't make sense to me.

Next, she told Rafe that her recent good behavior was a lie, and that she never changed at all but was still truly a shrew. She said she fooled him into thinking he'd won the bet due to her acting ability. She said she wanted to marry him so she could make him pay (page 268). Rafe said "You're not even going to think about it?" She said "The only thing I'll be thinking about is how to make you suffer." He said "Very well, then I see no reason to wait." He immediately takes her to an official who performs the wedding vows that evening. He then took her to her father's home, dropped her off there and left to go to his own home. This whole thing didn't make sense to me. Why would Rafe marry her that night after hearing what she said? I can only assume that the author meant for readers to believe that Rafe loved her and would marry her anytime he could. But, this hadn't been made clear to me earlier because he kept saying he didn't want to marry for several years. On the other hand, he was walking around with a special marriage license, so maybe he wanted to marry her no matter what. This scene just wasn't clear enough for me. It left me shaking my head.

Was there anything I liked about this story? I felt sorry for Ophelia growing up with no friends and being frequently hurt. Rafe was a likeable, good guy. During his travels, Rafe did a number of charitable good deeds for others. If fits that he would try to reform Ophelia, another good deed. I considered giving this book 1 star because of everything I mentioned above, but I gave it 2 stars because the author is such a good writer. She writes well and tells an interesting story even though there are plot and logic weaknesses.

Sexual language: mild. Number of sex scenes: three. Setting: unknown time, probably early 1800s England. Copyright: 2007. Genre: historical romance.

For a list of my reviews of other Johanna Lindsey books, see my 5 star review of "Gentle Rogue" posted 6/14/08.
Zyniam
A Beautiful Woman expects to be loved by a handsome titled man. She expects to be a show piece for him in furthering his
career. The other parts of love, are to be tolerated, only on rare occasions, she shows this with no outwardly affection.
Only when she is presented with rare gifts of jewelry does she consider marriage, no matter what his age is. The novel
has an interesting conclusion, when the Devil is unmasked and she see's an Angel.
Love Me
I really liked this book. I have been a long time Lindsey fan and this one did not disappoint! I didn't LOVE the book about Duncan and Sabrina, but I did like it (perhaps I was just annoyed about Duncan addressing Sabrina as "Brina lass." yuck). This book is better because the characters are well developed. It was probably very difficult for Lindsey to figure out how to redeem Ophelia but she actually did it! Some of the explanations for her previous actions were a little hard to digest and believe, but overall I think JL did a good job of writing the character.

Excellent story, you really learn about the two main chacters in the Heir one of them you really hate and one you really love and now with The Devil who tamed her you find out how they turn out. not necessary to read the Heir first but will add to the story I'm a big fan of Johanna Lindsey's work and this is one of her best!!!!

I didn't read the first book in this series, although it stood alone fairly well. I get annoyed when a second novel gives you all the backstory from the first, so that was a bit tedious. Loved the characters, and the romance was genuine and believable. Johanna Lindsey is enjoyable, but sometimes it seems a bit fluffy compared to other romance authors.
I enjoyed reading this book very much. I can't wait to read the next book in the Reid Family series.
