Oliver Sharpe, the Marquess of Stoneville, has been London's most notorious rake for years. Fed up with his behavior, his grandmother threatens to disinherit him if he doesn't tame his wild ways and wed within the year. Outraged, Oliver decides to hire a woman from a brothel to pose as his fiancée to prove that he can't be forced into marriage.
When he meets Maria Butterfield, a beautiful American woman who is searching for her fiancé in the most unlikely of places, he knows she's perfect for his ruse. But before long, Oliver finds himself willing to risk anything to make Maria his - even his heart, and the dark secret he hides inside it.

"Filled with larger-than-life characters and lively dialogue, this sizzling romance proves once again that Sabrina Jeffries is a "grand mistress of storytelling.'" (Romantic Times)
I absolutely loved the book can not wait till the she writes about the brothers and sisters will definitly buy those books as soon as I can
I have been married to my wonderful husband for almost 30 years. I love reading - romance, adventure... Captain Blood is really great!
vulnerable, manly, gentleman
I love the end of the book when they realize all the mistakes they were making
When they meet for the first time in the brothel
Ummmmmmmm Certainly turned up the heat, let's put it that way....
I REALLY LIKE THE BOOKS ABOUT DUKES, SO I CAN SAY I REALLY LIKED THIS BOOK. AND IT HAD A COUPLE STEAMY LOVE SCENES. WHICH IS ALWAYS A PLUS.
The storyline is just so formulaic and boring. A very weak story created as an excuse to get from one seduction/sex scene to another. I'm all for light entertainment and I wasn't expecting some deep story - but this is just bad.
Terrible audio quality on this recording - sounded like someone was reading in a closet. Narrator was terrible! Wrong English accent for the aristocracy - and little or no differentiation in character voices. I had a long drive with only this book available to listen and decided silence was better.
It was a good story, but it was wierd to listen to the guy's voice when he was trying to do the female character. Specially during certain scenes when they were kissing, etc.
Just a simple girl living the simple life. Nothing is complicated when the power of imagination leads the way. Close your eyes & just listen
The story was predictable and could have been much better with a different narrator. The reading made the main male character seem like an eighteen year old speaking nasally, and overly arrogant with bratty tones, rather than the mid 30 year old handsome and rakish, yet desirable man intended.
Not sure but definitely not the same narrator
Very little distinction between characters and he made them all seem like they were such whining little kids. Even though I made myself listen rather than waste the credit I found myself so irritated at his performance!
Once you've listened to great narrators - who can really stir your soul with in depth imaginations and recreations- which great writers provide the means for. ... You instantly start searching for reviews that touch on these points. I guess I overlooked those for this one.
Audible addicted love mystery,lately stuck on love story. Mother of 1 Labrador and 1 perfect man. Work way too hard, and so ready to be retired
I enjoyed it worth the cost will purchase the rest of series, even thou all of the narrators are different
I enjoyed this book just as I have all the books of this series.
I loved the moment when Maria told Nathan off.
I love his different tones for different characters
When Oliver realized he loved Maria
