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….

    "What a good story!"

    I loved both novels by Charlotte Featherstone. Great detail, well-developed characters, and infused with reality. Narroration was first class...very beleivable. I will read anything she puts out in the future and gladly pay the credit.

    "Narrator made the book."

    Sad and sweet story. Very captivating thanks to the narrator. The wrong narrator would have ruined it but Villar-Hausar's voice inflections were perfect and very sexy.

    "Dreadful Narrator, Mediocre Plot"

    Unfortunately it was difficult to tell if this book was disappointing because of the horrible reading or the plot development. I have never heard a narrator with such terrible phrasing. He takes huge breaths in the middle of sentences and places emphasis on words in a way that makes no sense.

    The story itself is decent, although there is a great deal of time given to character development, and then not enough time given to how the characters' personalities change due to their circumstances. For instance, the hero in the book is the worst kind of rake. The author spends a good amount of time describing his playboy past, and yet he literally changes overnight because of the heroine. Unfortunately this isn't described as a "love at first sight" scenerio, but more of a "lust at first sight" situation. Therefore, the immediate change of personality the hero undergoes is a bit confusing. Also, the heroine has a very strong since of morality, which is also described at length, but ends up as the mistress of a married man with little explanation.

    I definitely don't recommend this book for women who enjoy traditional romance novels, as it is written more like an erotic novel rather than a historical romance. Some people may find the choice of words rather vulgar compared to others typically used in the romance category. However, if you enjoy extremely detailed sex scenes regardless of the story line, it does get pretty steamy.

    "Would have gotten 5 stars if not for the ending"

    This book was on the top of the list for laughs, tears, and lust. The plot was exceptional …….until I made it to the end. I purchase these books to escape from reality; I paid for a happy ending. In my opinion, the ending was not a happy. I was so disappointed, upset, and sad how the author could make the heroine end up that way was devastating. Did Jane not learn anything from her mother’s misfortune? At the end of the book, I found myself hoping she ended up like her mother. Very bad relationship decision! I would have given this book 5 Stars if not for the ending.

    "I wanted to like this"

    But I didn't. I had high hopes but the sex scenes were beyond graphic and seem to be the real story. The characters are hopeless puppets without spines and the ending really sucked. Sorry, I wanted to like it but I just couldn't.
