    Iain Sinclair, Marquis of Alynwick, is certain there is a special hell for him. An unrepentant rake, he holds nothing sacred - except for beautiful Elizabeth York. For years, Alynwick has tried to forget the woman he loved so well, and treated so badly. A woman who could hold nothing in her heart for him but hatred. All of society believes Elizabeth, the blind daughter of a duke, to be a proper young lady. But no one knows of her wanton affair with Alynwick.

    Story

    Given that this is the third book in a series in which the main characters played pivotal roles in prior books, the mispronunciation of the main character's name is extremely distracting! While I usually enjoy books narrated by Ms. Stern, this effectively ruined what would have been a very good ending (?) to this series.

    The story has many twists and turns and for the most part flows fairly quickly. This author never disappoints and Alynwick is one of my favorite characters-probably because of all of his flaws. As long as the name change/mispronunciation doesn't bug you, it's worth the credit.

    Eveline Armstrong is fiercely loved and protected by her powerful clan, but outsiders consider her "touched." Beautiful, fey, with a level, intent gaze, she doesn't speak. No one, not even her family, knows that she cannot hear. Content with her life of seclusion, Eveline has taught herself to read lips and allows the outside world to view her as daft. But when an arranged marriage into a rival clan makes Graeme Montgomery her husband, Eveline accepts her duty -unprepared for the delights to come.

    Story

    After listening to a couple of the Sweet series I wasn't sure what to expect! It is a very typical historical romance-misunderstood maiden/laird of the castle. This was a very sweet (no pun intended) story that flows fairly well and moves quickly. While it seemed a bit implausible to believe that she could have kept her secret from her family for three years but her husband catches on almost right away, it didn't affect the overall story for me (it is fantasy, right?). I'm looking forward to the next in the series.
