What if you learned that your fiancé was not who he claimed to be?

Engaged to the charming and seductive Greg Anders, Sara Shaw is happily anticipating her wedding in Edilean, Virginia. The date has been set, the flowers ordered, even her heirloom dress is ready. But just three weeks before the wedding, Greg gets a telephone call during the night and leaves without explanation. Two days later, a man climbs up through a trapdoor in the floor of Sara’s apartment, claiming that he is the brother of her best friend and that he’s moving in. While Mike Newland is indeed telling the truth about his identity, his reason for being there reaches far deeper. He’s an undercover detective, and his assignment is to use Sara to track down a woman who is one of the most notorious criminals in the United States—and also happens to be the mother of the man Sara plans to marry.

Mike thinks the job will be easy—if he can figure out how to make a “good” girl like Sara trust him, that is. But Mike has no idea what this mission has in store for him. He’s worked hard to keep private his connections to Edilean, which date back to his grandmother’s time there in 1941. But as Mike and Sara get to know each other, he can’t help but share secrets about himself that he’s told no one else. And in return, Sara opens up to Mike about things she could never reveal to Greg. As the pair work together to solve two mysteries, their growing love begins to heal each of them in ways they never could have imagined. Download and start listening now!

Quotes & Awards

  • “Deveraux’s colorful cast and easy way with words shine.”

    Publishers Weekly

  • “As Deveraux continues her series, she brings to life the sort of sweet and spunky heroines who attract the muscular men her fans expect and enjoy. So this is another guilty-pleasure romance of suspense that will hook readers and leave them with a smile.” 

    Booklist

  • “Deveraux is a master storyteller…Scarlet Nights is no exception.”

  • New York Times Bestseller

Listener Opinions

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Tamar | 2/18/2014

    " This book was like eating M&M's while driving. Pleasant,predictable, sugar coated distraction on the way to somewhere else. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Sarah | 2/17/2014

    " Book three of the Edilean Series. This book is about Sara Shaw and is bite your nails good. You feel for her and love all the people in the town. Would recommend reading. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Barbara | 2/14/2014

    " Delightful and refreshing story- could not put it down til I finished it. I found it different from any of her other series and look forward to others in this series. IMO this is a different style for her and I enjoyed the change. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Barbara Sheppard | 2/10/2014

    " I did not feel that this book was as good as Lavender Morning. I liked the way the characters were developed but felt that the plot was weak. It did drag a bit in the middle and I found myself skimming some of the pages. I have another one in this series and will see how that one goes. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Mrs. Bella Cullen 4ever | 2/6/2014

    " I loved it. It was a great book that I wld love to read again. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Lisa | 1/20/2014

    " Another great story! The more I read the series the more I'm enjoying this author's style of writing. I like how she weaves the current storyline with the history from the underlying story. The blend is awesome and really pulls me into the story. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Claudia | 1/17/2014

    " Even though you knew how it would end, it was still a fun read. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Jen Taylor | 1/17/2014

    " Another wonderful story in the Edilean series! I really enjoyed it all the way through. I had trouble putting it down. Can't wait to read the next book in the series. Thanks for another great read Jude Deveraux! "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Journeywoman | 1/13/2014

    " Jude Deveraux used to be one of my favorite romance writers. Something about this book made me take it out of the library, but it wasn't anywhere near as good as her books could be. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Carol | 1/11/2014

    " I liked her time travel themed stuff better. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Sharon Sherman | 12/28/2013

    " I loved Scarlet Night and any reader would fall in love with Mike Newland. A man who doesn't have a million problems that can keep him from the right girl. This was a book that I could barely put down to eat or do anything else. Romance, suspense, fun, it is all there. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Erinn | 12/16/2013

    " Great read but definitely sexually graphic. Think I'll switch to Christian American-west fictional novels. All the romance- none of the dirty love scenes. If I have to close the book every time my husband or kids come around- I know its not appropriate. Too bad- it was a great story. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Jeannie | 12/6/2013

    " I did like it but it was kinda missing something. Maybe those missing answers will be resolved with #4? Maybe they won't. I'm kinda wondering if Jude is going to keep this series going until it becomes like another Montgomery/Taggert series. I personally would love a few more of those. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 I. K. Lore | 11/27/2013

    " Good story line and continuation from the mystery in Lavender Morning, but there was too much adult passion for my tastes. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Candace | 4/14/2012

    " I loved this book...but the ending was a little bit disappointing. The whole book was building and building to this certain event that you expect to be huge and the climax of the book, but then it's over in just a couple paragraphs. But the rest was fabulous! "

    and hero Mike Newland are exciting and the town of Edilean sounds like fun. "
