Convincing Adam that he is her husband is surprisingly easy. Resisting the temptation to act his wife, in every way, will prove anything but. And now a passion begun in fantasy has become dangerously real-and completely irresistible...

A fun romantic novel. The narration is great and made the story interesting. I enjoyed the story line and characters.
I wasn't too excited about the description of this book, but when I was looking at some of Putney's other books, I realized this was part of a series: The Lost Lords. This is book 1 and audible has 4 of the 5 books. I had already read "No Longer a Gentleman" and had the feeling I was stepping into a story that had already started because of the way it referenced other characters, so I was pleased to figure out that this was the start of that series.
I like to start at the beginning, makes for greater understanding and allows the story to build. Despite the bland description, I found this to be an enjoyable read with likable characters. I will be reading the rest of the series.
The book was horrible and trite. The reader wasn't awful, but it was hard to tell which character (the H or the h) was speaking most of the time.
I'm an avid reader of Romance and a true romantic at heart. I also read and review in other sub-genres as well. Happy reading!
I read this book years ago. This time I listened to the audio. While the story is great, I did not care very much for the reader. This is a great start for the series.
It is not often that i give a book 5 stars but this one was well written, the plot keep you interested and you won't be able to guess the villain in the story until the very end. I will be purchasing all the books in this series.
I have read almost all her books - this was a step down and SOOOOO corny!! why did she go main stream trashy here?? so "oh, his chest is so alluring and oh, how he is instantly attracted" give me a break - shame - I thought this would have had potential, not this time!
I couldnt finish this book which is a shame I think I could have liked it but I just couldnt take the narrator the voices she gave to the male characters was just wrong and i couldnt take it anymore if you wanna read this story i suggest you read it and not listen.
