Renowned storyteller Gaelen Foley unfurls the seductive tale of the rakish Lord Alec Knight, who never looked for love - until it was right in front of him....
Lord Alec Knight, the most daring and handsome rogue in all of London, is a smooth-talking aristocrat with an abundance of high-society lady admirers. With his irresistible wit, lucky hand at the gaming tables, and enticing charisma, he can have any woman he wants. But when the only girl he would have considered marrying ties the knot with someone else, Alec realizes he doesn't want to be with just any lady - he wants to find the love of his life.
The boldly spirited, beautiful Miss Becky Ward takes his life by storm after he rescues her from peril. Alec soon learns that she is on the run from her cousin, the murderous Prince Mikhail Kurkov. Becky has uncovered a menacing secret about the prince - now nothing will stop him from hunting her down.
In the midst of danger, Alec and Becky find themselves deeply drawn to each other. After the two spend an all-consuming night of sin, Becky's knight in shining armor vows on his honor to protect her until the end. But before long, Alec is protecting her with more than honor - and it seems the once untamed rake of London just may have found what he has been searching for all along... true love.

The whole thing was so alive and sumptuous! This is a book to lose yourself in and just . . .
Oh my! All I can say is this takes you on a ride of romance and love! One of the best I have listened to so far
Not bad. Plot moved along most of the time. Classic romance writing. Good narrAtor. Good for 4.95. Becky is orphan chattel. Threatened by Russian prince cousin. Hero is a whoring angel rake gambler who wins back her house. Modern attitudes in the 1800s
I have to admit... the book was a bit a slow at the beginning. After about 15 minutes or so, I was like OH MY! This book was so addictive. I just couldn't seem to get enough of it. I was very sad that there wasn't a Book 2. There must be more to Ava and Alex. This is defiantly worth a credit.
This book was ok. It is supposed to be a historical romance. Some of the phrases used by the characters were too modern. I know this is nitpicking but it still caught my attention. Formulaic and ordinary. An ok story, really nothing very special about it.
Pretty good story but I didn't like the modern phrases - they yanked me right out of the listening experience because it was jarring in an historical novel - 'head games' - really? Quite a bit of sex in this one, so if you don't like that sort of thing, pick something else.
The hero gets to be heroic and the heroine is plucky - I liked that.
This was my first novel by this author - I don't believe I'll look for or buy anymore as based on reviews on another site, the language problem is common in her work.
See publisher's blurb for plot clues.
I found this one to be too long and drawn out, and it never really grabbed me the way her books usually do.
Angele Masters did the best she could with the material.
