Rohan Kilburn, the Duke of Warrington, has quite a reputation. He's "The Beast" - a debauched rake whose many exploits echo in the countryside surrounding his ancient familial castle. In truth, he's devoted his life to the Inferno Club, swearing off love for duty in an attempt to thwart a tragic family curse. Beautiful spitfire Kate Madsen wants nothing to do with "The Beast" after she is mistakenly abducted by smugglers and delivered into his fearsome clutches.

Not a bad story, but why make the female (who's supposedly smart and raised with man's education) so flighty at times?? It's the typical "all he'll is breaking loose and she decides that the time to take a stand and not move until she says what's on her mind!"

Most debutantes dream of finding husbands. Lady Pandora Ravenel has different plans. The ambitious young beauty would much rather stay at home and plot out her new board game business than take part in the London Season. But one night at a glittering society ball, she's ensnared in a scandal with a wickedly handsome stranger.

The main female was a mix of obliviousness and flighiness. Random bits of being a business woman... but more in statements than actual character growth... Took a weird turn towards the end to add conflict/drama/save the girl moment that really didn't do much for the story line other than extend it.

I've read many of her other books, and typically a fan, but the girls seem to be getting more flighty lately!

Hugh Prentice has never had patience for dramatic females, and if Lady Sarah Pleinsworth has ever been acquainted with the words shy or retiring, she's long since tossed them out the window. Sarah has never forgiven Hugh for the duel he fought three years earlier, the one that forced her cousin into exile, nearly destroying her family. But when the pair is forced to spend a week in close company, they discover that first impressions are not always reliable. And when one kiss leads to two, three, and four, the mathematician may lose count, and the lady may, for the first time, find herself speechless.

The main female character is really annoying... just kind if useless, clueless, self absorbed... maybe a stronger character would have made this better.

Struggled to finish listening to this. The story is okay but made sluggish by the reader. The main male voice sounds like an old lady so I had a hard time listening to it.

This is the 4th or 5th book, but as it's a new publisher, it's being billed as the 1st book under a new series name. I think this carries on from Lucy and Colton's story.

When it turns out that Harry's and Lola's friends are a divorcing, not-on-speaking-terms couple sparring over the same house, the strangers find themselves accidental (and reluctant) roommates for the summer. They agree to make the best of it, even posing as a couple to mingle among East Beach's well-heeled crowd. But the ruse is starting to feel real - and romantic. Are they brave enough to reveal their feelings before the summer nights turn cold?

Story line is for young/ mid 20s. If you are older, you might get annoyed with the dialogue.

It's two stories around Christmas. Stories themselves are decent. Probably would have preferred reading instead. The narration was so slow and long pauses. It took me a while to get used to it. I did eventually, so the slowness didn't bother me as much on the second story.
