Publisher's Summary

When Lady Helena Simpson flees an unwanted marriage to a revolting lord, she finds refuge with James, a charming, handsome man unlike any she's ever known. Helena concocts the perfect solution to her problem. She asks - begs - James to ruin her. Surely her betrothed will repudiate her if she is no longer pure. And if all her efforts fail and she still ends up married to a horrid man until the end of her days, she will at least once have known true passion.

But James is not all he seems. He is, in fact, a wicked lord with a dark fancy. When Helena awakens his desire, he becomes determined to take everything she has to offer and more. No matter the cost.

Dusk not dark...

Quick paced light erotica woven into a sweet romance. Wonderful repartee, witty comebacks a plenty. Lots of spanking, but not darkly done. This book could have existed either with or without, but seems to fit perfectly in the middle of typical regency romance and erotica.
I assumed a narrator named Lottie Lush would be good at the sex scenes but not at the story but I was wrong. Pleasantly so. She did a excellent job!!

So, story good, narrator good, heated thoroughly and acceptably creditworthy although I got it with a kindle purchase total order price around $4.

The little bit of story was good, the rest was sex

So yeah, I think Audible put this book in the wrong genre. It should be in the erotica section for sure.

There is a little bit of story here in between the sex. The Story was great but it only covered about 20% of the book, the rest was sex. I absolutely loved the characters. Especially Helena. A potentially 10 star story ruined by the author sexcapades. I am sooo glad this was only 5 hours long.

As for the narration, it was good. I enjoyed it. I think Lottie Lush did a good job on the male voices. And she read with emotion and had a nice reading voice.

All sex, no real story

I had never read this author before, I bought this because the summary made it sound interesting. It was all sex no real developed story, I fast forward through most of it. What a wast of money. I'll never buy anything written by this author again.

Sex is the story

The story line was interesting unfortunately for me, I would rather the story be more developed, instead the sex was the story.

Quite enjoyable

Narration was great. Hot sex scenes. She annoyed me a couple times but wasn’t bad. I wish there was a little more of them falling in love, without cutting out sex scenes of course :) the dark duke is introduced in this book and I absolutely love him! I can’t wait to start book 2 which is his story.

Could be summed up with one paragraph!

What could have made this a 4 or 5-star listening experience for you?

Start all over and write a book leaving out 90% of the sex! I kept thinking a story would begin, but there never really was any substance from beginning to end. It was short but still a waste of time.

What was most disappointing about Sabrina York’s story?

Everything

Did Lottie Lush do a good job differentiating all the characters? How?

I suppose since there were only three characters that could be counted.

You didn’t love this book... but did it have any redeeming qualities?

Yes. It was short.
