New York Times best selling author Lorraine Heath has been an auto-buy author for me since her Rogues in Texas Series. So I’m very excited to have her with us today on Romance Novel TV.

Today Lorraine is graciously offering a complimentary copy of one of her Avon books, winner’s choice, to one lucky poster. If the winner has all of her books, she can opt to have Lorraine send her a copy of Between the Devil and Desire as soon as it’s available in late December. She’ll also include a complimentary copy of her latest teen novel, Labor of Love, which is written under her Rachel Hawthorne pen name.

When I pick up a Lorraine Heath book, I know I’m in for a well written, emotionally satisfying story. In Bed With the Devil is exactly this . . . in spades! This is book one in Ms. Heath’s new Scoundrels of St. James series.

He is called the Devil Earl. Lucian Langdon, Earl of Claybourne, grew up differently than other members of the aristocracy–he was raised on the rough London streets. At the age of six, he was taken in by and became one of ‘Feagan’s lads’, a group of misfits trying to survive the best way they could. At fourteen, Luke was captured and accused of murder, but was spared the hangman’s noose by a gentleman who claimed that Luke was …

His name is Locke – James Locke – and he’s an agent in Her Majesty’s service.

He has no family and his work is his life, leaving neither the time nor interest for relationships of any type.

Her first book in the Esri series, THE DARK GATE, was fantastic. Romantic, suspenseful and featuring one of the creepiest villains I’ve encountered in ages. I’ve just finished her second Esri book, DARK DECEIVER, and you know what? It’s even BETTER than THE DARK GATE. And that’s saying something!
