Publisher's Summary

Of all the dukes in England, Jered Marcus Benton, the Duke of Bradford, was the wealthiest, most handsome - and most arrogant. And of all London's ladies, he wanted the tender obedience of only one - Caroline Richmond.

She was a ravishing beauty from Boston, with a mysterious past and a fiery spirit. Drawn to the powerful duke, undeterred by his presumptuous airs, Caroline was determined to win his lasting love. But Bradford would bend to no woman - until a deadly intrigue drew them enticingly close. Now, united against a common enemy, they would discover the power of the magnificent attraction that brought them together... a desire born in danger, but destined to flame into love!

    "Great Story..splurge on the unabridged version"

    I really LOVE Garwood novels and bought this abridged version because it was cheaper and thought that I would enjoy the faster read. I was very dissapointed with how rushed everything was . The unabridged version of this novel is much BETTER!!!

    "Rebellious book"

    This book started out good, but then jumped too fast to come close to being realistic. Also, the book is not narrated by Anne Flosnik. The book is narrated by Elizabeth Swain. Had Anne Flosnik narrated the book I think I would have liked the book better. The narrator could not do male voices. I did not enjoy listening to the book by this narrator.

    Voracious reader and former librarian. I read at least 4 - 5 novels a week and listen to at least as many audio books in a week.

    "Abridged Version"
    Would you say that listening to this book was time well-spent? Why or why not?

    I listen to audio books at work it passes my time so yes for me it was worth it.


    Would you recommend Rebellious Desire to your friends? Why or why not?

    No, I am an avid reader. I usually read up to 5 novels a week, some are great, some good, some just okay. I would rate this as just 'OK'. It wasn't bad but it is not a book I could not walk away from. For me to recommend a book it has to be something I can't put down. I have just begun to listen to audio books and I like that I am able to listen at work. If you do choose to listen to this book I would suggest getting the unabridged version, the abridged version is missing too many details that are glossed over and never fully explored.


    Did Anne Flosnik do a good job differentiating all the characters? How?

    Anne Flosnik is not the narrator of this book.


    Did Rebellious Desire inspire you to do anything?

    Resolve to buy the unabridged versions of audio books, I felt I was missing part of the story. Much too much editing on this abridged version.


    Any additional comments?

    I normally read a minimum of 5 novels a week on my Nook, audio books could become expensive for me because I would like to be able to listen to these each day at work and at sometimes over 20 dollars a book it is not an affordable option but it is convenient. I am a voracious reader and while listening to audio books passes my time I find I still enjoy actually reading the book much more fulfilling.

    "Hated it."

    To sum it up in one word. Mush. I had to turn it off several times before finishing it. My eyes hurt from rolling them so much with this one. It's dissappointing because usually Julie Garwood writes such wonderful historical romances. She is in fact the reason why I got into reading romance novels. The narrator was horrible as well. Very drool and computer like.
