Summary

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.

the author does NOT use racist language

in reference to a review submitted by "Jessica" on 6 18 19. Jessica can't believe in 2019 to think the author would use the n-word when in fact the author used the word niggardly. which means stingy or miserly. it is 2020 now and I hope that jessica's vocabulary has improved and she can tell the difference between a racial slur and a common word of the era.

I enjoyed this one.

I must say I am a fool for an Irish brogue and this narrator did a great job in that regard. The story kept my attention and I enjoyed it. There was a little too much self sacrifice going on for me to give it any more stars, but it was entertaining with a good supporting cast!

The Methodist and her Rogue

A wonderful tale of heartache and true love. After her father is murdered Faith is lost as she tries to make her way to London. Morgan De Lacy is highway man getting back at the English for all that was done to his family!
He comes across what he thinks is a child and takes her back to his cottage. It isn’t until he finally gets a real look at he and feel that he realizes his little Methodist isn’t as young as he thought. He will try his wiles into seducing her.
A wonderful read with many peaks and valleys.

I was enjoying the book until....

First, I loved the narrator, she did great and will look for other books she narrates. I was liking the storyline fairly well, it was different than I usually read, a little slower but I was interested where the plot was going. I typically like more assertive heroines but I found Faith sweet, a young lady of 17 getting stronger every day, while mourning her father's murder, her life turned upside down, and being shoved out into the world after being sheltered her whole life. Gets lost and the hero finds her shivering during a storm and takes her in from the harsh winter thinking she's a child. In return for food and shelter during the winter, she takes care of the household chores while he goes and does what a highway man does, returns every night to a warm, clean cottage with hot meals, and pleasant company. All along thinking she's a child and she doesn't go out of her way to correct him. He develops a fondness for her in his gruff sort of way. She's secretly develops feelings for him.
Fast forward to when she realizes he won't change his illegal activities, is disappointed, so since the weather is getting better and Jack is gone for a couple days, she decides to seek employment at an inn down the road in the kitchen so she can get out on her own. She thinks the innkeeper hired her to help in the kitchen and keep rooms clean but the innkeeper has other plans as to how she can take care of the guests. She is nearly raped but Jack arrives just in time. And this is where the author lost me - once they get back to the cottage and she's still traumatized by the events, instead of comforting her, giving the poor girl a day to recover, knowing now that she's not a child, he tries to seduce her!! And during the hero's narrative he enjoys her "childlike" kisses! I just couldn't go any further and I always finish a book.

Slightly Uncomfortable

At first he thinks she's a child until he gets a glimpse of her breasts and then decided to seduce her for his own selfish purposes. He basically rapes her the first time. It's also annoying and unbelievable that someone could be so naive as she is.

Love This Book

It's perfectly imperfect. The noble rake, the stubborn heroine, the greedy relatives and the imperious lords--what else does a romance need? Love, of course, and it's there in spades.

New Author for me and great book

Devil's Lady has a lot of great and interesting characters. The story of Jack and Faith is a beautiful love story that has its ups and downs. Patricia is one of those authors who can draw the reader/listener into the story. As a result, I laughed and wept with Jack and Faith and felt their anger. Each and every character in this story is strong and unique. Mary Jane Wells is one of top 3 favorite narrators. She does the Irish brogue better than any other narrator I've heard. She also distinguishes between male and female voices. Jack, the hero, is an Irish fella who is full of fun, full of himself, and blustery. MJW make Jack a man above men. Thank you PR and MJW for a great listen.

Touching Story

One can't help but fall in love with the dashing Irish Highway man and his sweet demure little fairy of a woman who has fallen into his hands. The narration was great, especially the Irish accent. Beautiful descriptions of their love. I recommend this book.
