Stranger in My Arms

“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.

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?

    "Lisa Kleypas...gifted storyteller!"
    Would you consider the audio edition of Stranger in My Arms to be better than the print version?

    This audio edition was actually my first that I actually finished and truly enjoyed! I am a hardcore printed reader. But I have every intention of listening to this version again and again as well as more books written by this author!


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    I loved Hunter so much because it was a consummate pleasure to sense his self-restraint reach the breaking point in regards to his beautiful, modest wife that kept him at bay due to her past emotional and sexual scars that left her bereft of any desire for him because they were painful and ungratifying. I truly enjoyed


    What three words best describe Rosalyn Landor’s voice?

    Interchangeable, husky and pleasant


    Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    It was a roller coaster of intense emotions. I really experienced the angst and fire that developed between the two main characters. A slow burn that crackled with sensuality!


    Any additional comments?

    I loved the plot very much and the idea of the storyline. Excellent! Lisa Kleypas has become my favorite romance authoress.

    "Great Story -- Great Narration"

    I read this book years ago, and although I didn't remember much about it, I did remember I'd enjoyed reading it. Kleypas is one of my favorite Historical Romance writers, and with the talented Rosalyn Landor narrating, I knew it couldn't miss.

    It's an emotionally moving book, and it keeps you guessing -- "Just who is Lord Hawksworth".

    Although it's worth a credit, I was happy to see it on sale. It's a great read/listen!!!!

    Story
    "Frustrating Heroine...."

    This story had a lot of great pieces to it, but the puzzle just didn't come together as I would have liked. The best part of the book is the hero, Hunter....He is just irresistible because of his love for Lara. Let me clarify...the Hunter (post-disappearance) was simply amazing. Poor Lara is the annoying part of the book because of her fierce resistance to Hunter after he came back from a mysterious disappearance.

    The reader can sympathize with Lara because Hunter was such a jerk and absolute bastard to her before his disappearance. But, it's safe to say that the reader is more likely to forgive Hunter before Lara does. Oh the long and drawn out hoops that Lara makes Hunter figuratively jump through before she opens up to him was just ......annoying and frustrating.

    Even after she had given her heart to Hunter, I did not like how she treated him when she found out some revealing truth about their situation. Overall, nice ending..and Hunter is vindicated. Both Lara & Hunter get their happy ending :-)a

    "Wonderful"
    Any additional comments?

    After reading the other reviews, positive and quite a few negatives, I decided to purchase the book anyway because I am a fan of Lisa and her writing. I am glad I did. The story was great and I love how the female character became so much stronger as a person after she felt love and support in her marriage. This is a very accurate depiction in real life as well. The narrator is ok although I wish she could have more than one voice for all the male and female characters.

    "Terrible narration"
    What could have made this a 4 or 5-star listening experience for you?

    If the narrator would've been better


    How did the narrator detract from the book?

    She made it very hard to listen to and I couldn't enjoy the book.
