An Irish lass. An English lord. A love that overcomes all boundaries.
August Grayson has secretly dreamt of the girl living on his family's Irish estate since childhoods spent together in Killarney. Now a proper Lord of the British Empire, he knows that Maeve could never be more than just a distant fantasy. Still, if only....
Maeve O'Connor owns nothing in this world but her good name, which proves just enough to win a proposal for a marriage of convenience to a good, Irish lad. Until the wedding, however, she's in dire straits. Rent on the cottage she and her father share is due, but there simply isn't the money to pay. Driven to desperation, Maeve hopes Lord Grayson, childhood chum turned dashing English rogue, will prove lenient when she comes seeking clemency.
The temptation presented proves too much, and August offers Maeve a compromise: Should she permit him twice as long on each succeeding visit to do whatever he wishes in pursuit of his pleasure, he will consider her rent paid. Starting with a mere five seconds, pulses soon outrace the ticking clock, as August's desires become Maeve's own. Passion blinds them to the challenges closing in on both the Irish and English fronts, threatening to destroy the love they've only just rediscovered.
Working to bridge that which divides them, tempting fate with each stolen kiss, and torn between desire and obligation, Maeve and August must strive to overcome all and find a love by any measure...

I love all genres of books. However, when I listen to audio books as I clean, garden, drive they are better with a lot of heat!
If, you love historical romance then don't miss this one.
Jesus, Mary and Joseph, I don’t even know how to begin this review. So I'll start with the following: I absolutely LOVED it. Definitely one of the best HR stories I've ever listened to and I have listened to a few. I'm actually sad the journey is over, but what a ride this was. The love story between August and Maeve was both tragic and beautiful. We get to see glimpses of their past, present and future. The jumping back and forth between time periods was a little difficult to get use to, but the story it weaved was unbelievable. It was one epic journey that leads to one heck of an ending.
I wanted to like this so much but the audio narration was not the best and a bit distracting. Then the characters weren't very likable and I didn't find myself invested or rooting for them. too many twists and turns, some unnecessary.
