Publisher's Summary

In Victorian England, vice of every kind can be purchased, and Matthew, the Earl of Wallingford, makes certain he avails himself of every possible pleasure. Bored and jaded, he is as well-known for his coldness as for his licentious affairs with beautiful women.

While these numerous dalliances fulfill Matthew’s every physical need, they secretly leave him numb and emotionally void. Until one night, when he finds himself beaten, eyes bandaged and in the care of a nurse with the voice of an angel—and a gentle touch that soothes the darkness in him and makes him yearn for more.

Yet Jane Rankin is a lowly nurse, considered shy and plain by most. There is no place for her amongst the lords and ladies of the aristocracy—despite Matthew’s growing craving for the fire that burns behind her earnest facade. And then there is Matthew’s secret. A secret so humiliating and scandalous it could destroy everyone he loves. A sin, he fears, not even the love of a good woman can take away….

    "Horrible reading"

    It's really hard to get into the book when the narrator is not doing a good job. To be fair though, it looks like this was his first audiobook. He has a long way to go, but I think that he can end up as next Phil Gigante since he does have a really nice voice.
    Things that bothered me:
    - conversation needed to be more 'conversational' and not just plain reading
    - no real distinction between female/male voices. Although the voice for an old duke was well done.
    - randomly pausing in the middle of sentences which annoyed me to no end

    As for the plot- surprisingly deep since this is actually an erotic novel and not romance. The ending had an interesting twist. If you're thinking of reading this, I'd suggest just buy a book and read it yourself.

    "Gets better as it goes"

    As I listened to the beginning of the book I thought it was going to be all about sex and lacking in depth and plot. I almost considered turning it off. Glad I didn't. This book does have a good story and definitely gets better as it goes.

    I am a huge fan of romances and happy endings. I like books that take me away from everyday life and into the land of romance, some adventure and of course happy endings.

    "Disappointed"

    I read the other reviews and decided to purchase this book. I found it long and unfulling. Both charaters were cowards and a disappointment. I found the end a sham considering the time period in which the book was set. It felt like the author wrote herself into a corner and couldn't find a way out.

    "Sex, sex, and more sex.... not much of a plot..."

    While I have enjoyed the series, this particular book was more sex scenes than anything else. The narrator is great, but the book could use more of a story line.

    "I can't say I liked it but ..."

    I did appreciate the ending. It was a non-traditional HEA. I couldn't figure out how the author was going to "fix" things so it would end in the traditional hearts and flowers. She didn't, but things still worked out. It made the book more satisfying.

    I love to listen to audiobooks. It is great when the narrators get into the story and really bring the characters to life.

    "Great Book!!!!!! WOW!!!!!!!"

    This book is erotic and heartbreaking. I wept at times for Matty, his pain was so deep. This is a great story of healing for those that suffered for a long time. I loved this book as well as all of Charlotte Featherstones books!

    "Wow."

    I couldn't stop listening. It was raw & heart wrenching. I rarely give 5 stars to a romance, so this one was exceptional. I loved it.

    "HOT!"

    This is an excellent listen! I would describe it has Jane Austen with steamy sex scenes.

    "WTF did I just waist my time on?"
    Would you ever listen to anything by Charlotte Featherstone again?

    Nope


    What did you like about the performance? What did you dislike?

    He did both the women's and men's voices well, but he paused in the middle of sentences.


    Any additional comments?

    t started out okay. Grew tedious in the middle. Became almost unreadable at the end. The antagonists are over the top and cartoony, and are never defeated, (the H just sits back and let's them win). There is no HEA. The epilogue is supposed to be on the author's web-sight; I typed her name into google, but gave up after I didn't find it on the first page.
