Ruined beyond repair and shunned by London society, lovely Miranda Rohan rebelliously embraces the freedom that comes from having nothing left to lose. However, this dangerous course throws her under the power of the darkly enigmatic Lucien de Malheur - known to many as the Scorpion. Seeking to destroy the Rohans, Lucien traps Miranda in a marriage she thinks is based on friendship but instead is rooted in vengeance. Yet even when she realizes the truth, their enmity fuels a shocking passion---and perhaps even more. Such a man might drive anyone to murder.
Pay another visit to the House of Rohan.

Definitely. Narrator was awesome.
Excellent in every way
If you're the type that expects a knight in shining armor hero this is not for you. But for those of us that like a very dark hero, or every now and then wish the villian and heroine would fall in love, this book is perfect. It's a roller coaster ride, that will have you laughing your head off, chearing Miranda on, crying for her, hating Lucien, then loving him, and throughout wanting to shake some sense into them both. At some points I hit rock bottom thinking there is no way this is going to turn out well b/c Lucien is truly a creep, but in the end, wow. Anne Stuart nailed it. Loved Reckless but Breathless is something else entirely! (Oh and the narrator made it that much better!)
This is the first book that I have read by this author and I absolutely loved it. I cant wait to read the rest of the books and would highly recommend this book to anyone.
I don't know... Maybe it was my mood, but I really think I just did not care as much about being seduced by this male protagonist. Anne Stuart has been incredibly artful about developing previous characters, and took me right along with the heroine. This time, it just seemed a little too dark -- without the compensatory elation! Still a great narrator. I'll also allow that, sometimes, when I listen to a book again, I like it better. That may be the case with this one -- as I LOVED the first two!
Audio Addict! Usually listening to History these days. Love Will Durant most of all authors!
This is not along similar story lines to the first two. I always liked that Anne Stuart gave readers a taste of passion before the HEA.
This book takes too long, and the strained relations of the couple are frustrating. Im torn. I know I was hoping for something more like the others.
I just realized that plain Jane is the daughter of the Vicar and Charlotte's Cousin from the last book. How random that they would have a fat daughter! Maybe I misunderstood.
Anyway, this is just not for me. I hate giving this 3 stars. I'd feel better if I could give it 3.5.
When I clean, drive or exercise I listen to romance. The steamier the better but it must have a great story as well!
I did really enjoy listening to this installment of the House of Rohan. However, I found it hard to relate to the two main characters. The main male character didn't seem as sensual as in the ones in the previous books. Also, the leading female character didn't seem to have much personality. It was somewhat entertaining but not as good as the others.
