This book starts with the rape of a young girl by 8 men in hoods and continues on to tell the story of a pig headed man who doesn't listen to his wife..Show More » when she says no to sex. Of course he convinces her (by kissing her in just the right place) that "no" means "yes," then steals her fortune, and they go on to fall madly in love, solve the crime and live happily ever after. This is one of those books that gives historical romance a bad name. Personally? I'm not an Anne Flosnik fan either and probably would not have ordered this had I realized her nasal voice would have to be tolerated. I almost stopped listening after the first twenty minutes but decided to finish so I could honestly warn other romance fans that this one is problematic.
