When Lady Tremaine petitions her husband for an end to their civil but loveless marriage, Lord Camden agrees on one scandalous condition - she must give him an heir within a year. Their early attempts to fulfill this delicate arrangement are marred by cold detachment, but soon sparks of passion and long-forgotten lust begin to be kindled anew.

Audio-fiction ADDICT !
This is my first book for this author. And I am greatly discouraged by it. I would not read for this author again ! It's not the narration, actually it was acceptable. The problem with this book is the writing style that confused me and disappointed me ! The author keeps gong back and forth in time !!!!! Maybe some people like such style. But for me , it was so annoying. When I listen to romance audiobooks, I expect smoothness and flow that soothes me yet should entice me ! Going back and forth in time in the book creates a constant disconnect between my min and the book !
I really do not recommend that book at all !
This author is an absolute delight...the topnotch narration adds much to a well crafted plot delivered with humour...laughed out loud. Great phrasing and language, steamy love scenes and super character development puts this author in a superior class of romance writers...tough to put down!
I enjoy supernatural romances and fantasy!
After listening to Delicious, I was looking forward to this other book by Sherry Thomas, and hoping for another enjoyable book! In this, I was not disappointed.
Ms. Thomas' use of flashbacks is very well incoporated into the story line and her characters have depth. The descriptions are vividly portrayed and the characters, with all their foibles, are truly brought to life.
I have listened to over 85 audiobooks in the past 18 months from audible. I am happy if the audiobooks entertain me - they do not have to be fabulous works of art. However, this is absolutely the worst one I have ever encountered.
It took me sometime to get through this listen. The story drags and the premise has such promise but the execution of the idea is a disappointment.
