A golden-haired seducer, Nicholas has been hardened by a painful secret in his past. And now that he has besmirched Reggie's good name, the hot-tempered lady has vowed to wed him.
Her fiery beauty stirs Nicholas as no woman ever has - and the rake arouses Reggie's passion to an unendurable level. Such uncontrolled desires can lead only to dangerous misunderstandings...and, perhaps, to a love that can live only once in a lifetime.

"[Johanna Lindsey] creates fairy tales that come true!" (Romantic Times)
This story is wonderful! I laughed, I cried, and could not stop listening to it until it was finished. It's about time Johanna Lindsay's books were narrated.
This narrator is excellent, she brings it to life with her wonderful voices. I plan to keep a hopeful watch out for the other Malory family books to become available in audio, as well. Thank you for the great listening experience!
I really liked this entire series. This was the first in the series, so it was unexpected for me. I enjoyed meeting the Malory family and learning of the traits that each brother posessed! I also loved how they all watch over Reggie and come together to help her throughout! Laural Merlington has a fabulous voice and I could really escape the perils of a hectic day. I have never enjoyed traffic jams so much!
I have followed the Malory clan from book one, this one is as good as the others, as audiobooks goes this is number one.
Reggie, because of her spunk.
When Nicholas found out that the woman he thought was his aunt was really his mother.
The book was great.
Johanna Lindsey always spins fun tales. This was a quick and easy read. I read when I'm doing my 30 minutes of eliptical/cardio and I couldn't quit reading it. I actually got in a 1 hour work out because I was so engrossed in the story that I didn't notice the time.
Thoroughly enjoyable story. I love all the Malory's. Laural Merlington catches your ear from the beginning.Have read all the series but there is something about the spoken word that brings the story to life.
Loved it from start to finish, was actually sad to finish. Loved every character. It has a bit of everything, drama, love, secrets, interfering family members that make you laugh alot, misunderstandings, triumph. The main characters are great, actually all the characters are great. Some of the voices are shrill but there are so many different characters the poor narrator probably was unable to talk for a few days, lol. I loved it, hope you do.
i would recommend someone read this book. the narration detracted from the story.
The hero of the book sounded like an old woman -- as did every other man. And every now and then I'd detect a bit of "less than proper aristocratic" accent on the hero as the narrator was affecting a British accent (it was not natural). I may have enjoyed the story more with the right narrator. As it is, this is the first Johanna Lindsey book I've listened to (I've read and enjoyed her stories) and I'm seriously doubting I can get through the series with this narrator. What a shame as the reviews indicate the series is a good one.
one of the worst romance novels I've ever read. Even though the hero/heroine interaction was quite good, there was sooooo little of it, and soooo much of other characters doing irrelevant things (e.g. men plotting revenge and violence). The reconciliation between hero/heroine came all at once at the very end and felt contrived and too easy after a book where they spent so little time together, I'm not sure why they thought themselves in love.
I was at first not crazy about an American narrator doing English voices, but she did them quite well and it made the narration easier to follow as it was easy to differentiate from the characters' voices.
Very poor from Johanna Lindsey, and I'm surprised it's got some good reviews!
