What readers say about Devil''s Desire: "One of my all-time favorite romances." "I just love this book! Each scene keeps you turning the pages." "What a pleasure to read an author I know will never disappoint me!" They called him the devil? With his seductive golden eyes and sin-black hair, it''s no wonder Lord Alex Trevegne has earned himself the sinister title-not to mention his reputation as one of the most notorious rakes in England. And she''s the only one who can conquer him? When fate throws Alex and Elysia into a scandalous situation, Alex suddenly finds it surprisingly difficult to tear himself away from her. As an unexpected passion blossoms between them, Elysia begins to wonder if after a lifetime of heartache she''s finally found heaven in the arms of the devil. Praise for Laurie McBain: "McBain''s skill at shaping characters and propelling the plot distinguishes her." -Publishers Weekly "Well-crafted and wonderfully romantic. Readers are rewarded with teeming atmosphere." -Romantic Times "Vivid sense of description, colorful characters? I found myself happily lost in the magnificence of the storytelling." -Los Angeles Herald Examiner

About the Book

Women mean but one thing to Lord Alex Trevegne, whose jet black hair, golden gypsy eyes, and arrogant ways have earned him the name "Devil," until circumstances-and passion-conspire to bind him to the beautiful Elysia. Fleeing the brutality of an aging and spiteful aunt, Elysia encounters Alex at an inn. When the two are discovered in a compromising situation by a guest with a grudge against the "Devil," they are forced to marry. Alex is determined to leave his bride and their marriage of "inconvenience" behind at his isolated estate in Cornwall but soon discovers the innocent Elysia awakens emotions he believed himself incapable of feeling.
"McBain's skill at shaping characters and propelling the plot distinguishes her."
-"Publishers Weekly"

Read from the Book

Its song pierced the primeval silence of the forest below as the cheerful cry carried through the chill air; the clear notes penetrated beneath the thick canopy of branches, and reaching the soft, loam-covered forest floor the sound was absorbed by the bright carpet of fallen leaves. The woods seemed to come to life, humming with the chirpings and chatterings of busy forest creatures contentedly gathering food for the oncoming winter, until another sound intruded into the aimless animal chatter and sent a hush over the clearing. An uneasy silence hung over it as the threatening sounds of baying hounds and pounding horses'' hooves echoed in the distance. The gossiping birds took wing and the bushy-tailed squir­rels scurried into safe nests as a figure emerged from the trees, twigs snapping sharply as it moved into the clearing. "Tally-ho!" Ribald laughter followed the cry of the hunt. "Where is that foxy wench? Damnation! Don''t lose sight of her now, man!" The excited voices drifted to a still figure, galvanizing it into action, and the raised voices became louder as the riders
