Known throughout for his prowess in the bedroom, Morgan Lyons, the eighth Earl of Westcliffe, cannot forgive an unpardonable affront to his honor. Discovering his young bride in the arms of his brother was a staggering blow - so he banished the beautiful deceiver to the country and devoted himself to the pursuit of carnal pleasure.
Claire Lyons was an innocent, frightened girl on her wedding day, seeking chaste comfort from a childhood friend. Now, years later, she has blossomed magnificently and has returned to London with one goal in mind: the seduction of her notorious husband. Unskilled in the sensual arts, she burns nonetheless for the kisses too long denied her. And she has but one Season to win back the heart of the rogue she betrayed.
They are masters of seduction, London's greatest lovers. Living for pleasure, they will give their hearts to no one... until love takes them by surprise.

"Plenty of... twists and turns appear en route to the passionate conclusion. Complex, emotional romance and a hint of mystery complete this tale, which will have readers eagerly anticipating the next installment." (Publishers Weekly)
I read so I can write
The fantastic combination of Lorraine Heath writing and Anne Flosnik narrating is guaranteed to be good.
This story is a perfect example. My only complaint is that the antagonist might have been developed a little more to build suspense.
That aside, great love story. Great listen!!
As a narrator, Anne Flosnik grows on you - at least she has grown on me. I recall sometime ago complaining about her narration, but after a number of excellent performances, I'm sold on her.
This is the first book I have read by this author and would deffinitely read more. Great regency romance.
Yes, because I love stories like this. Always get caught up with them.
Did not hear much yet so can't compare it.
Yes, I love her way of reading.
Yes when she lost the child.
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!
Lorraine Heath is like that little girl in the rhyme: when she is good she is very, very good but when she is bad, she is awful. Unfortunately, this book is of the second type! After about 2 hours I kept looking to see if it was over yet! It features a "heroine" with a weak back bone and a brain the size of a walnut. But just when you think it can't get any worse, along comes her pea-brained sister! She sounds like an opera singer warming up: me me me me me!! Unfortunately, the hero doesn't offer much more either. Forcing myself to get to the end of this recording was torture. Anne Flosnick does a good job with the reading as she usually does, but she sure doesn't have much to work with here. I definitely recommend that you not waste your money on this one.
Couldn't finish this one. I readily admit many historical romance stories have somewhat implausible story lines, but authors like Lisa Kleypass and Gaalen Foley built enough mystery and intrigue, along with the usually slowly escalating sensuality between the characters, that if the story line is somewhat hoakey, the overall story is good. This one is not of that caliber.
Anne Flosnik is as usual flawless in her narration, and the only reason I was able to make it at least 1/2 way through the book.
A good romance captures you from the first lines. This one was a little bit slow, nothing happened, the dialogues were dired and silly at many occasions. The story was ok, it had all the ingredients to be a wonderful romance, an unfaithful bride and a cynical and bitter hero but the author was not capable of setting fire between the two of them. Not bad at all but could be more captivating.
yes i love he voice i by all i can find whit he.and this one is as good as always
