A cunning, ruthless, yet irresistible rake, Anthony's sensual blue eyes speak of pleasures beyond her imagining - and Roslynn, believing his passionate promises will surely lead to disaster, dearly wishes she dared to surrender to such a man. But denying her heart may cost the exquisite Highlands lady an unparalleled love hotter than flame and more precious than the rarest jewel.
The saga continues: listen to more romatic tales of the Malory family.

Huge fan of Johanna Lindsey. I'm not too sure I like the voices the performer does for the male characters, especially James Malory. overall very great book however the performance needs work.
I listen as I commute everyday and travel for work.
I really loved the character of Anthony Mallory and it was good to see his character was the same in this book. I appreciated the fact the heroine was closer to him in age and also was just as stubborn. But what really made this book worth it to me is the interaction between Anthony and his brother James -- they should have their own book without any romance -- a real bromance book. LOL
I did feel the length of the tension between the Anthony/Roslynn was a little too drug out for the book. I would rather have had them declare their love for each other and tackle some of the drama as a couple instead of keeping them apart over a very simple little misunderstanding.
Overall a great addition to the Malory family of books. I look forward to reading the next one in the series. The narrator still hasn't bothered as she does other reviewers except for the occasional pitch/tone that doesn't sound good.
I have read this series 3 times. My all time favorite series. I had the books 1 st and now have them all on audio.
Johanna Lindsey is one of my favorite authors. I owned all her books. I have since gotten all that are on audio.
I am now addicted to Johanna Lindsey's books. I'm sorry it took me so long to discover this series.
This was delightful. Lindsey's books are quite humorous (I sure hope that was her intention) and the characters are colorful and interesting. This book is no exception. I truly enjoyed this.
The one negative I can point to is that the narrator's Scottish accent sounds like an Irish brogue and was a bit distracting. But I've already downloaded Book 3 in this series.
I found that since I rarely have time to actually read, listening to books while I am busy, I can enjoy the books AND complete tasks.
LOVE this book. Funny, touching and a joy to read.
All of the Mallory books are enijoyable, yet this one is my favorite I think.
Enjoyed the first book of the Malory Family series. REALLY enjoyed the second. Again, Merlington was wonderful.
I feel really stupid that I let the offer of three romances for 2 credits dupe me into downloading this shallow, ridiculous book. It was like one long advertisement for other books in Lindsey's Mallory series. Here's the thing - once I finish a romance - which is pure escapism - I do not want to revisit the characters in their wedded bliss. The tension and the conflict of their story is done, and Lindsey's insistence on giving old characters cameos in other books just dilutes the dramatic tension of the new book. I don't care about them anymore and I want to get to the fireworks between the new characters. I grew up on Lindsey and some of her early works were among my favorite books as a teenager. But in this book, the characters were very poorly drawn - all stock figures interchangeable from other books - the world-weary rogue, the innocent yet incapable heroine and the Scottish duenna. Get rid of this last character, Johanna, please. In fact, unless your last name is Gabaldon, can we all agree to stop writing and reading about stereotyped Scots? The narrator was also dreadful. I mean, really dreadful. Her idea of a male character is gravel in the voice. It sounded so ridiculous. For a really good romance with well-developed characters, a decent plot and great romantic tension AND A GREAT NARRATOR check out Josie Lytton's "Dream of Me" series. I want my two credits back.
I found this book boring, and quite difficult to finish. The plot started out all right, but the author couldn't bring it off. The heroine is stupid, and the hero unpleasant. This is the last Johanna Lindsey book I try. The narrator is also quite annoying.
I stopped listening to this narrator half way through the story. Accents were absolutely awful. Scottish accent terrible and english accent worse.
