What Meg Smiles lacks in wealth, she more than makes up for in audacity and determination, both quickly harnessed when Jean-Marc, Count Etranger, and his sister take up residence across the square. Now gainfully employed as companion to the count's madcap sister, Meg discovers it is not her charge who occupies her thoughts, but the girl's enigmatic older brother.
When Meg becomes the victim of a series of strange accidents, Jean-Marc finds his austere world turned upside down. And when it becomes alarmingly clear that Meg's very life is in danger, Jean-Marc's desire for this unsuitable but enchanting woman overcomes his sense of propriety. He vows to ensure her safety, even if it means keeping her close to him, day and night.

"Sure to please historical romance fans who enjoy steamy love scenes combined with a little mystery, all penned with a lively hand." (Publishers Weekly)
Worst book I have ever heard. I was almost comical in how bad it was. The narrator was horible as well the storty was dumb- don't waste your time!
I have read this book in print form, and it's lovely. The editor cut out everything but the sex scenes, including a half-dozen interesting and endearing characters and most of the personality traits and history of the main characters.
The narrator made it all much worse, with horrendous accent and inflection.
This book is utter drivel. There is no plot. The hero and heroine are idiots, having no interesting personality traits, just pleasing physical attributes. It takes more than explicit sex scenes to make a romance interesting.
Audio books are new to me.This was a nice story, though far from creative. I'm thinking maybe the unabridged version would have been more enjoyable. The story seemed to have been missing some....flavor? When it ended, all I could think of was "Is that it?"!
The part where she tried to rescue the cat.
Yes, you could tell the difference between characters with her change in voice and it wasn't long before I recognized the characters by the different voices she used.
Yes, the main character can be the little sister as she finds her husband.
The narrator good, but the editor of this book should have been fired; i have nevr seen a worse piecing together of an audiobook. Save your money and buy the paperback.
