Publisher's Summary

New York Times best-selling author Lisa Kleypas delivers a scintillating tale of an unconventional beauty who finds passion with the spy who can't resist her.

A woman who defies her time

Dr. Garrett Gibson, the only female physician in England, is as daring and independent as any man - why not take her pleasures like one? Yet she has never been tempted to embark on an affair - until now. Ethan Ransom, a former detective for Scotland Yard, is as gallant as he is secretive, a rumored assassin whose true loyalties are a mystery. For one exhilarating night, they give in to their potent attraction before becoming strangers again.

A man who breaks every rule

As a Ravenel by-blow spurned by his father, Ethan has little interest in polite society, yet he is captivated by the bold and beautiful Garrett. Despite their vow to resist each other after that sublime night, she is soon drawn into his most dangerous assignment yet. When the mission goes wrong, it will take all of Garrett's skill and courage to save him. As they face the menace of a treacherous government plot, Ethan is willing to take any risk for the love of the most extraordinary woman he's ever known.

Coming Home

Two well matched people find,love,strength,comfort and happiness with each other.Risking their lives,they are thrown into a conspiracy of dangerous proportions.Being strong and not giving up,they amazingly overcome all the obstacles trying to prevent them from being.Only one mistake that I could conceive of that was made by Mary,the narrator.If I heard correctly,in the chapter where Ethan was brought to the Ravenel’s home in Hampshire,she spoke in Winterbornes accent during West’s dialogue introducing Garrett to the servants.Winterborne had seen them off on his personal train car,but I’m pretty certain he didn’t accompany them to the Ravenel’s country estate.Other wise,great story.

Mary Jane Wells ... makes this great

I was so excited to get my paws on Garrett and Ethan ... and their story was absolutely lovely. What appealed most to me was that they didn't go out of their way to hide their mutual feelings.

Although, I truly enjoyed the story I have to admit that Mary Jane Wells adds a whole layer for awesome to this book. She brings it the story to life.

Terrific!

This is a terrific story that involves two unique people, plenty of intrigue, and a romance with heat to spare. The narrator did a wonderful job with each voice and gave life to this tale. I HIGHLY recommend it!

DEFINITELY worth that credit

** sigh **
Lisa, you never disappoint.
And Mary, I could listen to your voice forever.

I eagerly awaited this audiobook for months, and it met my expectations. A wonderful love story and adventure story in one.

I look forward to the next Ravenel love story. I hope Weston wins back his lost love next, and I wonder if that one ruthless London businessman repeatedly mentioned in the series (can’t remember his name off hand) will become a love interest for some female member of the Ravenel family. Write fast, Lisa! ;)
