Reckless, wild, and beautiful, Lily Lawson delights in shocking proper London society – and now she is determined to rescue her sister from an unwanted impending marriage to the notorious Alex, Lord Raiford, by fair means or foul. But while she succeeds outrageously, Alex is a master gamesman who is not to be undone.
Alex has lost one bride, yet he is enchanted by this remarkable lady who is willing to break any rule to flaunt her independence. When Lily offers him only scorn, he counters with kindness, and he parries her blistering barbs with gentle words and a soft, tender touch. The spirited miss will pay dearly for her interference – with her body, her soul, and her stubborn, unyielding heart. But will Alex's own heart be the prize to be won in this sensuous game of love?

"Then Came You" kept my interest throughout. I have read many Lisa Kleypas books, but having one read by such a talented performer was even more enjoyable.
Rosalyn Landor was the perfect choice to narrate this unique, mysterious and stimulating story....it has everything needed for the romance lovers entertainment.
I hope they will add more of this series.
Lovely novel not to miss!!
I am not into Harlequin novels, and I only recently began reading anything romantic. I was reading paranormal authors like J. Ward, Karen Moning, and Jeaniene Frost.
I happened to finally give this a chance bc of it's great ratings.
I am surprised at what a wonderful, engaging, sweet and loving story this is.
The heroine and hero have lived with their own deep painful pasts. Alex is just plain amazing and Lilly is so easy to empathize with. He teaches her the best parts of life and protects her from the terrible debautry of the world she has had to live in. The gentle forward movement of the romance is just right. And I felt myself feeling tremendously for the characters.
A waste of time and money. Muddy. Boring. Not worthy of purchase. Do you get that I did not care for this book?
She was unable to remember the hero's name!!!
I like to read along while I listen so I don't have to constantly look at the words. So, if you intend to buy the audio and book you might be interested in this review.
I'm only at 16% of this book and I'm going to finish it because my daughter said it was a really good read, and I trust her, but I had to write this review because I'm very, very frustrated at this point and my daughter says this happens throughout the entire book. The narrator doesn't seem to know the hero's name. She called him Ratherford once or twice but mostly she calls him Wolverton.
HIS NAME IS RAIFORD!!
The book said "the Lawsons" but the narrator said "Squire Lawson"
The book said "Lawson was a scholarly man" but the narrator said "George was a scholarly man.
The book said "Lord Raiford" the narrator said "Alex Raiford"
The book said "Lord Stamford" the narrator said "Zachery Stamford."
And, like I said, I'm only at 16%. I can hardly wait for the rest of the book.
Now, I expect the narrator to make a mistake once in a while but if you want the hero to be called by his correct name you might want to just buy the audio and not the book along with it. Hmmm, will that work?
This is my first audio by this narrator and I can't see myself ever listening to her again. Once or twice she's used his correct name, Raiford, but that's all.
Maybe Landor has a different version from the book, I don't know, but, whatever, it is it makes the listening/reading very frustrating. Did the author change the hero's name when the audio was being read?
I only have about 50 audibles in my library, some with good narrators and some not-so-much but I've never had a narrator make so many mistakes.
