Publisher's Summary

Lady Madeline Matthews would rather shame herself than sacrifice her freedom - which is why, to avoid a marriage to an aging, lecherous lord, she seeks out the company of Logan Scott. A torrid affair with the notorious womanizer would surely condemn her in the eyes of good society. Though a legend in the bedchamber, Logan is, in truth, an intensely private man tormented by past betrayals. Now a forward little minx is disrupting his life with her vibrant charm and unspoiled beauty, a high-spirited enchantress completely at sea in London’s sophisticated whirl. But when what begins with a kiss threatens to blossom into something more rapturous and real, will Logan and Madeline have the courage to drop the masks they hide behind in the name of love?

    "Engaging characters, too much conflict"

    The characters are typical Kleypas: likeable, enagaging, well-developed. However, the conflict between the hero and heroine picks up too strongly in the second half of the book and goes on for too long. I kept waiting for the negative tension to be addressed and resolved but it kept going and going. The nature of the conflict is also pretty cringe-worthy and a little heartbreaking.

    Despite this, I don't regret spending my credit on this book. The rich characters and unpredictable plot is (eventually) rewarding.

    When I clean, drive or exercise I listen to romance. The steamier the better but it must have a great story as well!

    Story
    "Boring, pradictable and repetitive"

    This is one of the worst books I have listened to in a long time! Although I ordinarily love Rosalyn Landor, I was not very impressed with the narration even from the beginning. By the time I had heard Lady Madeline go on and on about her insecurities for the 10th time I was ready to jump out of a window! I don't ordinarily like to write negative reviews because doubtless someone out there will or probably does love this book, and I totally respect that. However, I found this book to be terribly boring, predictable and repetitive, I could not even finish listening to it. I listened about 3/4 of the way and gave up for hopes of something better.
    Madeline is very young, 18 fresh out of the schoolroom and promised to be married to an old man (sound familiar). She decides the best way to solve her problem is to have an affair with the most popular current stage performer, Logan Scott. Logan won't allow himself to fall in love but ultimately gives in to the beautiful Maddie (again, familiar). I like several of Lisa Kleypas' books and think she is amazingly talented. She has a strong ability to create detailed characters with true heartfelt problems, not to mention her ability to write a steamy love scene. Although, she must have been having a rough month (I highly doubt it took her longer than that) when writing this book because it comes nowhere close to the talents displayed in books such as "Stranger in my arms" or the "Wallflower" series. If you want to take the chance and like the book, great and I'm very happy for you. Those of you with histories like mine, skip it and go onto something better.

    "I wanted the book to never end!"

    What a romantic story. I lost myself in it. Once I finished the book my hand accidentally pressed a button and "here without you" began playing on my iPhone. It was a great ending to a completely fulfilling listening experience. Another winner! Thank you Lisa for adding color to my life.

    "Very good"

    This is the second book in the Capitol Theatre Series and it is better than the first. I liked the characters better. They were more fleshed out than the characters in the first book and the heroine, "Maddy", is more likable than Julia, the heroine in the first book. This book is a good stand alone book even though it is a part of a series. I recommend it to anyone who likes a good romance story that causes laughter and tears - and a huge sigh of contentment at the end of the book.

    "Lisa Kleypas is the best!"
    Where does Because You're Mine rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    It probably ranks like 3rd. I love her stories and how she keeps them going with her series. The reader she chose does the voices incredibly well!


    What did you like best about this story?

    That it was a continuation of her characters.


    What does Rosalyn Landor bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    The voices she does and how she can use the grammar so well!


    Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    It made me laugh and feel anxiety.

    "Entertaining"

    It was an entertaining listen from Lisa but not her best . Was a bit bored at times . But as usual Rosalyn Landor's narration is the best !

    "Enjoyable listen"

    Somewhat typical story but still a good book. Characters were likable enough. Some of the back story seemed more interesting than the main one.

    "Could have been better"

    The potential of the story is fantastic and the story well developed but the impact is blunted by too much tension between the primary characters even after the source of the tension is removed. The narrator does her usual excellent job
