Publisher's Summary

A Diamond in the Rough

Merchant's daughter Charity Sparkler is a sensible miss who harbors one secret folly: she's in love with her best friend's brother. She knows that the worldly rake will never return a wallflower's affections, yet when destiny throws them together, she discovers that passion can be the greatest of equalizers... and love can be more than a dream.

A Hero in the Making

Gentleman turned prizefighter Paul Fines battles his demons through boxing, drink, and women. When an act of disgrace nearly destroys him, he begins the road to redemption - only to accidentally compromise his sister's spinster friend. Honor bound to a marriage of convenience, he is stunned to discover that lust can heat a bridal boudoir... and love can mend a jaded heart.

A Marriage About to Become Inconvenient

As an ugly duckling and a reformed rake fight for love, secrets unfold that could threaten their future. Can she forgive a past betrayal and recognize her own beauty? Can he find redemption in the boxing ring? Will steamy nights of Her Prodigal Passion turn into happily forever after?

A Bit Graphic

Would you say that listening to this book was time well-spent? Why or why not?

It is an entertaining book. I thought the premise was good, the characters were developed well, the plot development was done well...

I think it's the language that threw me off. Honestly, I really enjoy sex in novels. If I'm involved enough with the novel, I can even dismiss occasional vulgarity, especially if I feel like it fits the character or the scene. I don't expect all vaginas to be a woman's "core" and all penises to be a man's "shaft." I mean, it's okay to call it what it is or to use less pretty language to describe a hot moment (sex can be pretty feral, right?). It's realistic. However, there was so much... strong.. language and it felt so out of place that I couldn't really get lost in the story. I kept getting jolted back to reality every time there was a sexual thought or act.

So, yes, I feel like it's well spent as long as you're not easily distracted by vulgar language. You can return anything for any reason as an Audible member, so I'd definitely say it's worth giving it a try.

Would you recommend Her Prodigal Passion to your friends? Why or why not?

It depends on who I'd be recommending it to.

Have you listened to any of Erin Mallon’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

No, this is the first time. I really liked her narration.

Not my favorite of the series.

This was my least favorite of the series. I have been waiting since April 2014 for this audible release too.

I had a hard time with the heroine being a bit to wimpy. It would have been a better book had he heroine been a stronger and wittier. Sometimes I actually wanted the hero to just leave her!!

I just didn't feel the chemistry on the hero's side for her, it seemed sort of forced or fake. Also, Paul's character in the previous books was so much better, seemed the author made him a bit of a downer. Quite disappointing because I was really looking forward to his story.

There was of course lots of sex, didn't seem to have as much sex as the previous books though. But there was still quite a bit.

There was quite a bit of dialogue throughout, so there is that. (I like lots of dialogue)

Well, all in all the rest of the series was fantastic so I am still glad I listened\read the Mayhem in Mayfair series. Just a bummed this last books wasn't so good.

As for the narrator, she did a much better job in the previous books. Not sure what happened here but the men sounded to feminine in this book. She was just barely okay.

The Best In The Series!

The story brings a great conclusion to the series and the H/H are not your typical characters. Neither one is Titled. They both have deep insecurities. Love and trust brings through in the end. It is a very different spin on the marriage of convenience premise with evil money lenders and all sorts of twists and turns. The Narrator does a MUCH better job in this edition as well. Overall a really enjoyable “read”.

Awesome book

This book has everything. It makes you laugh at times, and it makes you cry at times. I like how the main female character morphs from a timid woman into a warrior type. I honestly could not put this book down! Every time I tried to put it down, another interesting thing happened, so I couldn’t! I recommend this book to anyone that wants to read a great story!
