Author Gaelen Foley presents the Inferno Club - a scandalous society of London aristocrats, notorious for their shameless pursuit of pleasure. But the Club's members have a higher, secret purpose: spying for the Crown.
Rohan Kilburn, the Duke of Warrington, has quite a reputation. He's "The Beast" - a debauched rake whose many exploits echo in the countryside surrounding his ancient familial castle. In truth, he's devoted his life to the Inferno Club, swearing off love for duty in an attempt to thwart a tragic family curse.
Beautiful spitfire Kate Madsen wants nothing to do with "The Beast" after she is mistakenly abducted by smugglers and delivered into his fearsome clutches. Rohan similarly refuses to fall for her, mindful of the many dangers in his life. But when she starts to thaw his icy heart, Rohan knows he will do anything to make Kate his own.

I loved this book! It was so good from beginning to end!
Wow was this story good. I really loved these two characters together. Rohen and Kate had some great chemistry and banter. Some of the best written sex scenes I have read. Just excellent writing and story telling going on here.
The story line and plot was great. I loved the conspiracy, kidnapping, sword fight, mystery and all the action. You don't get a lot of that in historical romance books but this one had it all.
I highly recommend this book 100%
As for the narration, well Marian Hussey is one of my very favorite narrators so not only was the story good the narrator made it even better. She does such a great job on the men's voices. Every person gets their own distinct voice and her reading voice is amazing. She reads with emotion and is just a super narrator!
This was SO much fun... a crazy ride through unbelievable adventure and the treacherous waters of the hearts truest desires.
Excellent narration, incredible heated romance and a credit well spent!
I love good books and great narrators. Love urban fantasy, sci fi, romance, mystery, murder, and mayhem with lots of humor and sarcasm.
This is my first read of this author's work. The story line was interesting enough to keep me listening to the end. I would have had more fun if I could have kept my attention on the story. I was jolted out of it a lot because of references to things not in existence at the time. The manners and behavior of the characters would have been more in keeping with 21st century California than Napoleon era England. References to shotguns instead of blunderbuses really bothered me. It was just things like this that prevented the story from being at least one star better for me. The narration was okay.
I think it would've been a good story but I was too distracted by the narrator. Elizabeth sounded like a ninny half the time. I didn't feel like there wasn't much build up to the "romance". Couldn't do more than half the book. I gave up.
