He lives in secret service to the Crown—a man of duty, deception, and an undeniable attraction to a woman who threatens to tear his whole world apart.
They call him the Devil of Dorset. He stands alone, a man of undeniable power. Moving in and out of shadows, back alleys and ballrooms, he is unstoppable and one of the Crown’s most dangerous weapons. However, when he sets his sights on the undeniably beautiful Countess of Mont Claire, Francesca Cavendish, he doesn’t realize that he has met a match like no other.
TRUE LOVE WEARS NO DISGUISE
Francesca is a countess by day and stalks her prey—those responsible for the death of her family—by night. What she does not expect is to be thrown into the path of the devil himself, the Earl of Devlin. She has secrets of her own and he seems determined to lay them bare. Can her heart survive finding the love of her life and losing him when all is revealed?
A slow building romance with secrets and suspense made The Devil in Her Bed by Kerrigan Byrne a delicious listen. Narrated by Derek Perkins, this is the third audio in the Devil You Know series surrounding the Red Rogues.
This story belongs to Francesca. She is high spirited, feisty, independent and determined to get justice for the family she lost. She has earned herself quite the reputation amongst the peerage. Particularly with the men. All say she is voluptuous and skilled, though few remember the details. But with each conquest, she becomes one step closer to bringing down the Crimson Council.
Chandler, The Devil of Dorset, has set his sights on Francesca. He is determined to unmask the Countess of Mont Claire, but alas, he may just have met his match.
This was quite the game of cat and mouse. I loved the dance these two played as secrets were revealed. Neither knows how to trust, and it was fascinating watching their barriers come down. With each encounter, Francesca surprises Chandler. I loved the battle scene between them.
Secrets, miscommunications, selfish pride and well Chandler caused some bumps along the way romantically, but these two had delicious chemistry and their responses felt genuine.
Francesca’s path to justice led her to some very dark and dare I say, kinky places. I felt the thread wrapped up well. This is the last book in the Devil You Know series, and we got some happy moments with the Red Rogues.
Derek Perkins’ performance was top-notch. His range of voices, both male and female, along with his pacing and tone, made listening to this story a pleasure.
Fans of historical romance, headstrong heroines and swoony heroes will want to add The Devil in Her Bed to their audio collection. While each of the books in this series can stand on their own, I do recommend you listen to them in the order of their release.

It’s been so long since I’ve read historical romance and I’ve been missing it! This sounds like a good read and a bit spicier then I usually pick up.
