    I have waited for YEARS for an unabridged version of this book to be produced and had begun to give up hope. With all the mediocre books being recorded at a dizzying rate these days it seems many great earlier works by authors are not prioritized. Thank the romance gods that this classic has been given its due. The narration is magnificent and the story still breathtakingly beautiful. If you have read the story I can assure you that it is even more wonderful in audio, if not, please DO NOT MISS one of the best romance novels ever written!

Until one day, Lori Sullivan barges into his life and promptly blows his emotionless and solitary world to shreds, driving him crazy as only a woman nicknamed "Naughty" can. But will Lori be able to convince him that it's safe to love her...and that forever isn't actually out of reach?

    I listen to an audiobook every day for at least eight hours. I have a strong preference for historical romance and have enjoyed some paranormal writers but don't care much for contemporary romances or "chick-lit". Then I found the Sullivans! These stories are wonderful. Bella Andre managed to write love stories for eight siblings, each unique and entertaining. The characters are well-developed and the stories are narrated well. If you usually don't like novels written in current times I highly recommend trying this series for something different!

    Three months ago, governess Serena Barton was let go from her position. Unable to find new work, she's demanding compensation from the man who got her sacked: a petty, selfish, swinish duke. But it's not the duke she fears. It's his merciless man of business - the man known as the Wolf of Clermont. The formidable former pugilist has a black reputation for handling all the duke's dirty business, and when the duke turns her case over to him, she doesn't stand a chance. But she can't stop trying....

    I almost never download novellas. I am inevitably disappointed, feeling as though 3 or 4 hours simply doesn't allow enough time for an author to fully entice me into caring for the characters. The plots often feel truncated. But because I have so much enjoyed Courtney Milan's novels I bought this as soon as it was released. Then it sat on my MP3 player for months and I skimmed over the title again and again. Last night my computer was down and this was all I had left that at all appealed... Thank you computer! Simply stated - this was wonderful! I winced, I filled with ire, I smiled, I sighed and at the end I grinned as I experienced that wonderful feeling of satisfaction that comes from listening to one of the good ones!

    Damien Knight, the earl of Winterley, is proud, aloof, and tormented by memories of war. Though living in seclusion, he is named guardian to a fellow officer's ward. Instead of the young homeless waif he was expecting, however, Miranda FitzHubert is a stunning, passionate beauty who invades his sanctuary and forces him back into society. Struggling to maintain honor and self-control, Damien now faces an even greater threat: desire.

    Any additional comments?

    I listen to an audiobook every two days and have never written a review but felt compelled to warn others. I am very adaptable when it comes to narrators' voices and can almost always get used to a voice that bothers me at the start of a book. I certainly appreciate excellent narration but rarely get stirred up by less than stellar performances. This, however, was appalling!! I have been anticipating Ms. Foley's books being released in audio for a long time and have even corresponded with the author but if Ms. Greene narrates more of this series I will not be listening. The female voices were good, many of the male voices acceptable, but the hero's voice, described as a baritone, sounded more like a passionless, snobby woman. Truly awful. I know that narrators can be an individual preference but I sincerely doubt many will find this appealing. I hope that the low ratings don't deter other books in this series from being produced so long as narrators change.
