Publisher's Summary

“Lady Hawksworth, your husband is not dead.” With those words, Lara’s life turned upside down. Hunter, Earl of Hawksworth, had been lost at sea. Or so she’d been told. Their unhappy marriage - with its cold caresses and passionless kisses – was over. But now a powerful, virile man stood before her, telling secrets only a husband could know, and vowing she would once again be his wife in every way. While Lara couldn’t deny that this man with the smoldering dark eyes resembled Hunter, he was attentive and loving in ways he never was before. Soon she desperately wanted to believe, with every beat of her heart, that this stranger was truly her husband. But had this rake reformed – or was Lara being seduced by a cunning stranger?

    Story
    "he comes back from the dead..."

    She's been a widow until her husband returns. She is not excited because her husband did not value her and their live life was drunken encounters. But her husband has had a change of heart and wants to begin again. She is surprised to be drawn to him.
    This story was okay. His renewed interest was unstoppable. I was neutral about both of them.

    "Slow to start"

    The characters were more interesting than the story itself. Different but it's a Lisa Kleypas so I read!

    "Another Kleypas Success"

    I love this author. Her books are interesting, with strong female characters. I always learn something new when I read one, and I also like that characters from multiple of her books appear as minor characters in others. Strong love story, and sexy as usual.

    "The narration was good"

    I'm not sure what I think about this book. I found it troubling. I've had to give this some thought.

    I usually love Lisa Kleypas' books and I'm actually disappointed that this one did nothing for me. I disliked it. The entire story of the returning husband started out well enough but by the end, it was annoying. The only redeeming part of the story was Johnny. He was adorable.

    Rosalyn Landor's narration was wonderful as usual.

    "Excellent Story"

    Lisa Kleypas has gone above and beyond proving her writing skills over the years with many enjoyable romances and the only thing I find better than reading one of LK novels is listening to one read by the always pleasurable narrator Rosalyn Landor. These two are a perfect pair.
    STRANGER IN MY ARMS was an intelligent as well as sultry romance. No over the top sex scenes (but there are steamy scenes between the two main) and the sex wasn't used to fill in blank story lines. I am on who will skip over scenes that aren't needed in books or ones that go for shock value, none of that here. This story gave a great love story with some mystery thrown in. It all wrapped up nicely as well with no big questions left unanswered. Although a secondary characters story was left open at the end which may or may not be covered in another book. Nothing left me needing more, although I do WANT more and will go looking for it!
    Well done a lovely read!

    Story
    "Disappointing"

    I usually love Lisa Kleypas' books but this one was really disappointing. It's one of those books where you look at the time remaining, see 2 hours and groan "Oh NO. I have to listen to two more hours of this!!! Ugh" The "heroine" was SO annoying. Weak and whinny. It was painful to listen to. I would definitely recommend that you save your credit on this one. Rosalyn Landor does her usual wonderful job but even she can't save this one.

    Story
    "Story is "OK" but..."
    Would you ever listen to anything by Lisa Kleypas again?

    It depends on the story and how each character is portrayed. I like some of Lisa Kleypas books, but sometimes her stories and characters are a hit or miss with me.


    You didn’t love this book... but did it have any redeeming qualities?

    I liked the hero he's all that you would want for the main character.


    Any additional comments?

    The heroine acts like a "Mother Teresa" with her charitable works and yet she can't bring herself to be understanding and considerate and at least try to reconcile with her husband when he wanted to start over with her and their marriage. Heroine's character not very appealing.

    I love Epic Fantasy....have become a Historical Romance fan because I am a sucker for a good Happily Ever After. Good characters are a must

    Story
    "Hard to put down Mystery and Sexy Romance"

    This book was hard to put down. It got to the meat of the story quickly and I immediately started to try to figure out what the outcome would be. Although some reviewers said it was predictable....and parts were (it is a HEA after all!)...I was shocked once the mystery was solved. So it kept my interest throughout.

    I did spend most of the book wishing Lara would give in and become a little less suspect of Hunter, BUT I also asked..."what if I were in her shoes" I would be just as skeptical and guarded. It made the story more realistic. Lara wasn't unlikable in my opinion...I became to like her quite a bit.

    Its obvious from the reviews that this is one of those books you either love or don't like. I loved it. I thought the author did a great job with the romance between Lara and Hunter. It made me want more and I became impatient...but not out of boredom...because it was just that good!

    Narration was great. Landor is one of my favorite although she does make the men sound a little older than I wish she would....she makes up for it in every other aspect of her narration.

    This is my first Kleypas book and it will not be my last. I thoroughly enjoyed it and feel it is definitely credit worthy!
