Publisher's Summary

A young debutante makes a hasty exit from London only to create new headlines on the Continent.

After being expelled from a young ladies’ academy, a disgraced Miss Arabella Jardine is whisked away to the Continent until the controversy in London subsides. However, it doesn’t take long for Arabella to shock her family all over again when an encounter in Switzerland with the irresistible rakehell-in-exile Earl of Langdale leads to a compromising situation. Despite his wicked reputation, Lord Langdale is the sort of man she has dreamed of marrying.

When Gabriel Holmes-Fitzgerald is caught in flagrante delicto with the apparently prim and proper Miss Arabella Jardine, he’s obliged to offer for the young lady’s hand. Unprincipled cad that he is, Gabriel is no stranger to scandal. He’ll do the right thing and wed Arabella, although he secretly despairs his tainted soul will corrupt and ultimately destroy her.

When Arabella’s life is unexpectedly threatened by an unscrupulous enemy from the past, one thing becomes crystal clear to Gabriel: the worst torment of all will be losing the woman he loves. And he would do anything, even sell his soul to the Devil himself, to save her.

Narrator needs to learn how to pronounce words.

I understand that the English pronunciation of some words is different than the American pronunciation, for example, we pronounce "Valet" as va-lay and the English pronounce it va-let but Claret wine should be pronounced clar-et. Also in one text it was clear that the word should have been "palaces" not "places". This did not ruin the story for me but I'm frustrated that there does not seem to be a review or editing process on these readings. Also the Scottish accent of the heroine was affected and overdone.

Excellent!

I loved this book! The characters are delightful, funny, real. One of the things I love about Ms Bennett’s writing is that there are always many unexpected twists & turns. Even when common literary elements appear—such as the return of a former lover—she always adds something different so things transpire in unique ways. These are not stereotypical characters and that is very refreshing! I laughed out loud many times and wept throughout.

The narrator still mispronounces many words (parents’, claret, on dit), but most of the time it’s a one-off.

don't believe the bad reviews

it is wonderful for a smutty regency romance with a little suspense thrown in. not instant love but not drug out with rediculous assumptions either. the sex is hot without being porn. the book takes some modern liberties that you just have to overlook for the good of the rest. if this is the genre you are looking for it is worth the credit but if it is not then save the credit and bad review.

It’s okay.

This book was fine. Nothing great, but not awful either. The Hero is written a bit over the top on some of the emotional issues, but I guess the story only had so much time for large emotional growth. Like most books of its kind don’t read this if you are looking for an authentic period read. Sexy time is on the more graphic end of the scale, but it doesn’t eclipse the story.

Interesting characters and overall great romance!

I like this series’s, the heroines are unusually smart and witty, and I like that they’re so fiercely independent—even during such oppressive times for womankind. The heroes or love interest are pretty different as well, strong and virile but yet so irresistibly vulnerable. I’ve enjoyed everyone of these stories—Sophie, Olivia and now Arabella. I can’t wait to read Charlie’s story...that’s going to be a treat!

Inferior Narration

The narrator was just plain awful. She seemed to have an inadequate command of the English language. There were frequent mis-pronounciations of words and it appeared she was not aware of this fact. Evidently there was little to no preparation for this reading. Her constant neglect of any attempts to correct her errors indicates her lack of comprehension of the content. I hope someone will take time to improve the quality of her narratives before future attempts are undertaken.

I’m in Love

After reading the first book in the series I knew that I enjoyed this author. After this second book I can honestly say I love this author. She has the ability to write in depth characters and amazing plots. I may want to smack both leads in this book a time or two, but a true person has flaws, which is why these characters come to life. I eagerly await the next book in the series and may not be able to wait for the last book in the series to come out in Kindle or Audible before I go an purchase it.

Not very entertaining

I enjoyed the other books in this series but this one not so much. The connection between the hero & heroine just seemed really weak. I’m not sure if it was the writing or the narration but something was lacking. Also, the narrator seemed to do an okay job but I did not like how she did the male voices.

Felt like I was there...

Author does a good job painting a visual and social picture of late 1800s Europe. Loved Arabella's character... independent, strong, and determined!

Not worth the price

Of course he four titles in the series, this was the weakest plot and overcoming the issues keeps no Bella/Gabriel apart was tedious and took meaningless, predictable turns. Then, when the book reached the accepted number of pages to publish, everything resolved and wrapped up quickly and again with no surprises. Nothing satisfying about this one. Waste of time
