Desperate to save her sister's life, Sidonie Forsythe has agreed to submit herself to a terrible fate: Beyond the foreboding walls of Castle Craven, a notorious, hideously scarred scoundrel will take her virtue over the course of seven sinful nights. Yet instead of a monster, she encounters a man like no other. And during this week, she comes to care for Jonas Merrick in ways that defy all logic - even as a dark secret she carries threatens them both.
Ruthless loner Jonas knows exactly who he is. Should he forget, even for a moment, the curse he bears, a mere glance in the mirror serves as an agonizing reminder. So when the lovely Sidonie turns up on his doorstep, her seduction is an even more delicious prospect than he originally planned. But the hardened outcast is soon moved by her innocent beauty, sharp wit, and surprising courage. Now as dangerous enemies gather at the gate to destroy them, can their new, fragile love survive?

It drew me in right from the start - Jonas is a scarred, tormented and tortured rogue who gets more than he had bargained for when Sidonie agrees to give up her virginity and spend 7 nights with him. He soon realises 7 nights are not enough but he needs to seduce her in order to win her heart forever.
Good story with secrets that shouldn't be kept and it has suspense with another sub plot too, two leading characters that you can't help but empathise with and it has you routing for them both and their doomed relationship.
Worth a credit? Yes, and I haven't listened to any of Anna Campbell's other books but I would definitely give them a try too.
I have always loved to read...but I often find it hard to find the time to sit down with a book. I started listening to audio books not too long ago, and I am hooked! It is hard to limit my listening to just during my comute to and from work! It has become a guilty pleasure of mine! I love just about every type of book, however I am a hopeless romantic to the core! :)
Good story overall. It is pretty intense all the way through! And Anthony Ferguson does a pretty good job. I wasn't sure about the narration at first, but he really grows on you after a while.
I am a singer and Celtic harper specializing in the music of Scotland, where I go often to study and perform. I love romance books because I like a light hearted story with a happy ending!
This is a ridiculous book! The "heroine" is an annoying dishrag. If I had a nickel for every time I couldn't refrain from screaming "You're an IDIOT" at this woman, it would pay to replace the credit I wasted on this book! The narrator is good but he, too, is wasted on this book.
ABSOLUTELY, Love the narrator, the great story and wit... totally enjoyed it
Every BOOK I can, Antony is one of my favorites... just love him reading historical romances to me! Compares to be as great as always, he was born to read these!
THIS BEAST IS MORE THAN SKIN DEEP
There is only this one book of the series available on audio... totally want the others as well as more Anna Campbell, and hopefully Antony reads them.
