Miss Marianne Winchilsea is running for her life from those whom she believes have attempted to kill the king. Forced to disguise herself, she trusts no one - especially not Garett Lockwood, the Earl of Falkham, who usurped her family home and who seems to be her most dangerous enemy.
And what Garett sees behind her masquerade is a beautiful half-gypsy enrobed in mystery, deception, and burning secrets. A woman he should avoid at all costs. In a world where treachery and betrayal reign, a sweet seduction rules their hearts - and dares them to risk their destinies on a passionate love that all the powerful forces of the world cannot defeat.

This narrator did an awful job. The book was just barely okay. The heroine was one that you want to slap, A bit to whiny for my taste. I love Sabrina Jeffries, this is one of her older books where the H and H fight the attraction and feelings all the way to the end, which becomes annoying. I like her the more recent books better. I am currently READING her heiress series which have all be great so far. I am looking forward to starting the Hellions of Halstead series. These books are so much more entertaining and a lot less frustrating. I cant recommend this book unless its on sale for real cheap and you have nothing else to read/listen too.
This is one of those really good books that come along on occasion. strong independent women, a messed up good guy who needs female influence in his life, a seriously evil bad guy, a mystery, and a couple of sweet love stories, all work together in a well written story.
It works and it works well. This is one that goes into my listen-again library.
