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?

    "Probably the most annoying book I've listened to in a long time"

    I don't usually write reviews, but I was so irritated by this book that I felt like I had to say something. I haven't read a regency book that I've disliked as much as I do this one. I actually really like this author & she has written some of my favorite regency romances, but this one sucked. I downloaded it because it seemed to have high ratings, but I am so disappointed. The main character Laura is not likable. The only nice likable qualities she has is her love for her sister & charity, but besides that she's extremely wishy washy and hypocritical. I found myself rolling my eyes so hard at her and saying omg really?? Please just shut up. Not only was the main character not likable, but the story stretched on & on without really accomplishing much, towards the end I couldn't take it anymore and skipped through about an hour of it, needless to say I don't think I missed out on much.
    So in conclusion, if you like leading ladies who are wishy washy, hypocritical, self pitying and not very proactive plus a plot that needlessly stretches on without getting to the point, I think you will like this book.

    Story
    "Annoying heroine "

    Unfortunately found the heroine whiny and pathetic. She was supposed to be this Saint but she was kind to everyone but her husband. Yes they had an unpleasant history but he was now treating her well and trying hard to make her happy. When her husband left her alone as she had requested, she then dressed provacatively thrusting her "charms" in his face and then balks at his advances. I found that behavior appalling. When she then plots to renege on a promise she made to him I had to stop reading as I couldn't relate to her character in the least and even disliked her.

    "Don't miss this story!!"

    I'm a Lisa Kleypas fan and have probably read over ten of her novels including the Hathaways, Capitol Theater, and Wallflower series. This book, while not part of a series, is now one of my favorites! I only wish I had found it sooner!

    I hesitate to say much about the plot at the risk of spoiling the experience of reading it so I will simply say that I highly recommend that you shouldn't hesitate to buy it if you are a lover of historical romance.

    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.
