Publisher's Summary

Christina Bennett had taken London society by storm. The ravishing beauty guarded the secret of her mysterious past until the night Lyon, Marquis of Lyonwood, stole a searching, sensuous kiss. An arrogant nobleman with a pirate's passions, he tasted the wildfire smoldering beneath Christina's cool charm and swore to possess her....

But the feisty and defiant Christina would not be so easily conquered. Mistress of her heart and of her fortune, she resisted Lyon's sensuous caresses. She dared not surrender to his love...for then, she must also forsake her precious secret...and her promised destiny!

    "IT'S A WORTHY FIVE STAR LISTEN"

    This book is full of GREATS - the narration, the author, the storyline, the dialogue, the characters, their chemistry and, of course, the romance.

    It's all been said before by my fellow reviewers so all that I can add is that it was a joy to listen to this different, action packed tender, sweet, sad, funny, emotional story that stands out from the crowded bookshelves because it did such a good job of mentally time travelling you to a bygone era and feeding you a romance that nourishes your mind as well as your heart.

    Worth a credit? Absolutely YES.

    "Interesting story, but the narration?"

    I am intrigued by the story, wanting to know what will happen, but I can't bear the narration, and will have to find a written version to find out what happens. I am amazed to read so many reviews from people who loved the narration. My dislike is not of the narrators acting skill, but of the intonation and quality of her voice, which I find very peculiar, grating, and distracting.

    I have listened to other Julie Garwood books narrated by Susan Duerden, and in the past I was able to get absorbed enough in the stories to forget my dislike of the narration. But in this book, there is so much of the harsh, angry male voices that I feel so irritated by, that I just cannot continue listening, and will be returning the book. Even Christina's voice is unpleasant to me.

    I didn't want to rate the story, since I haven't given it a chance, but I could not proceed with the review until I did, so I gave it three stars.

    I love books! Hardback, paperback, audiobooks - books in any format! My favorite genre is romance, because I also love a happy ending.

    "If you like traditional Garwood,you'll enjoy this."

    Julie Garwood is my favorite author, and this book didn't disappoint! If you've read and loved her other books then you'll love this one too. Also, I really enjoy this narrator. Susan Durden(sp) has a great voice and I thinks she does the characters spectacularly.

    "Wonderful story & narration"

    Loved this book, The characters were such interesting individuals. The slow revelation of the heroine's story, interwoven with the love story worked beautifully.

    "Intonation left the story lacking."

    I love this story. I've probably read out about fifteen to twenty times since I first read it in 2002. I didn't like the actor's intimations all the lines ended with the same tone. almi at like each line was read separately instead of the paragraph read as a whole. The voices were almost all the same but there was an attempt to differentiate betwixt characters. I hope the next book isn't the same.

    "Funny and romantic!"
    What about Susan Duerden’s performance did you like?

    Best audio performance I've heard so far. The timing for all the funny banter was perfect. Excellent male/female voices.
