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?

    "I liked it."
    Any additional comments?

    Any book that Rosalyn landor reads is always good. She reads each character wonderfully. The story was enjoyable and even though a bit predictable I still liked it. It kept my interest and couldnt wait to find out the ending.

    I love being swept away by a new romance and thankfully Audible's ever growing Library means I get to indulge myself over and over again

    Story
    "ONE OF HER BEST YET, I COULDN'T STOP LISTENING"

    I really loved this listen, you can't help routing for Hunter - he was soooo patient, kind, thoughtful, sex starved but Lara just wouldn't be swayed by his pursuits and promises - stupid stupid woman. This is how to write a love story, it was Regency romance at it's best.

    I thought I needed sleep but this listen proved me wrong.

    LK is an automatic download for me and she just seems to be getting better and better then couple that with Rosalyn Landor's narration and you've got a match made in heaven.

    Worth a credit? Absolutely yes, I'm one happy happy member.

    Story
    "A steamy little romance."

    This book started out a little slow and cliche but ended up getting better as the characters were developed. I was never sure what the final verdict would be as to whether the man returned from the dead was indeed the Earl of Hawksworth or an imposter. I would give it 3.5 stars. My only complaint is that the heroine is annoying at times when it comes to intimacy with her husband and that fact is beaten into the readers brain without mercy. I felt like the author did a great job presenting life in the ton and their shallow, self-absorbed existence. Spousal abuse and the plight of orphans plays a interesting part of the plot and made the romance a little deeper than most. I listened to it on audio from audibles and the narrator did a really good job.

    When I clean, drive or exercise I listen to romance. The steamier the better but it must have a great story as well!

    Story
    "WOW! I want a stranger too!"

    I decided to get this because of the narrator, Rosalyn Landor. She is amazing, I love the way she speaks and brings the characters to life. This story was fabulous. I was glad to see that it started right at the heart of the story instead of a slow build up. Also, their are several twists and turns along the way. I had no idea what was going to happen! This was decidedly a keeper and one that I'll listen to many time.

    "Reminded me of the movie Sommersby."
    Any additional comments?

    Enjoyed the listen. Always like Lisa Kleypas books and this one was what I expected. It reminded me of the movie Sommersby, whick I loved. So I wasn't disappointed. As always Rosalyn Landor did a great job with the narration

    Story
    "A bit predictable"

    I thought this one was predictable and the main character a little too rigid to be likable. But since it is Kleypas, you know it will be a nice listen even if it isn't her best heroine.

    Story
    "Very good if you have basic psychology knowledge"

    This story was very good. I read several reviews saying that the heroine is unlikeable but you have to understand that a victim of repeated spousal rape would be completely negative and afraid of any intimate encounter in the future. The way Larissa acts just makes the story believable. Hunter was a very interesting character with many layers and up until almost the very end I kept wondering whether he was a stranger or not. This story has lots and lots of sexual tension, many twists and turns and a very satisfying ending. I highly recommend it.

    Story
    "Great story with a few too obvious turns"

    I enjoyed this story very much, though there were times I wanted to bang the female lead (Sara) on the head for her slowness to catch on. However, I guess her situation justifies her hesitations, and she comes through in the end. A couple of the plot twists were either too obvious or too clever by half, but it still was an engaging story with attractive and likable characters. Some of Kleypas's dialogue had me laughing out loud, which is one of my favorite features of her writing.

    "Awful Herione"
    What did you love best about Stranger in My Arms?

    Hunter - he was great and the only one in the whole story with any common sense.


    Would you ever listen to anything by Lisa Kleypas again?

    Yes - because I have read some of her other books and liked them.


    Which character – as performed by Rosalyn Landor – was your favorite?

    Mr. Young


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

    Yes - anger and disgust. The heroine was so extremely self righteous and stupid


    Any additional comments?

    Wish I hadn't gotten this one
