Publisher's Summary

Once, Abrielle's name was on the lips of every unwed nobleman in London as a proud, exceptional lady coveted for her bearing, her breeding, her wit, and her beauty.

But when her stepfather, respected for his courage and valor during the Crusades, is denied his rightful title and the wealth that accompanies it, Abrielle finds herself suddenly disgraced, no longer a suitable match for any proper gentleman. Only one would still have her, though he desires no more than physical pleasure: the oafish and grotesque Desmond de Marlé. His dark and scandalous reputation is legend, and Abrielle has heard rumors that his first two wives perished by his hand. Yet no one else can rescue her once-proud family's honor and keep her stepfather from debtor's prison, so she is left with no choice but to accept the cruel and hateful de Marlé's offer of marriage and sacrifice her virtue to a scoundrel she fears and detests...even as she yearns for another lover.

Dashing, handsome, tall, and kind, a black-haired Scotsman with vivid blue eyes, Raven Seabern is an emissary for his king, and quite unlike any man Abrielle has ever encountered. From the very first moment their eyes meet, he intrigues and mesmerizes her - and dancing in his arms at a royal banquet leaves her weak with the desire to surrender.

But their love can never be, for Abrielle is betrothed to a monster. And the well-being of everyone she cares for demands that she honor her promise. Still, the fire lit that night will not be doused. Raven knows he has found the true one and must never let her go, though secrets, deceptions, dishonor, and unimaginable peril will surely be their fate if they follow the dictates of their hearts.

    "What a waste"

    Do not even waster your credits. This book is horrible. It could have been written by a 13 year old. Nothing makes sense and it is so far fetched its unbelievable.

    "disaster"

    I totally agree with Fran from Ferndale. This book is a waste. If I had the choice of being locked in a windowless cell with this book or Battlefield Earth, i'd choose Battlefield Earth.

    "Interesting but confusing"

    Maybe it's just me! I felt the narrator did a good job of dialects and male voices but I couldn't keep track of characters. I am guilty of doing other things whilst listening.. but this made me stop and ask huh? who? the heroine was easy to spot but the hero and introduction of more and more characters to me was confusing.

    "lesson learned"

    The only good thing about buying this was it taught me to be more carefull. Who would want half of the plot missing from a story, and to pay full price for it? Abrided is crap IMO. Also, the narrator for this one is kinda awful. She is fine for the women's voices, but the men's sound high-pitched and forced.
