Publisher's Summary

Battered by the sea, Adam remembers nothing of his past, his ducal rank, nor of the shipwreck that almost claimed his life. However, he's delighted to hear that the golden-haired vision tending his wounds is his wife. Mariah's name and face may not be familiar, but her touch, her warmth, feel deliciously right...

When Mariah Clarke prayed for a way to deter a bullying suitor, she didn't imagine she'd find the answer washed ashore on a desolate beach. Convincing Adam that he is her husband is surprisingly easy. Resisting the temptation to act his wife, in every way, will prove anything but. And now a passion begun in fantasy has become dangerously real-and completely irresistible...

Good summer read

A fun romantic novel. The narration is great and made the story interesting. I enjoyed the story line and characters.

Start of a Series

I wasn't too excited about the description of this book, but when I was looking at some of Putney's other books, I realized this was part of a series: The Lost Lords. This is book 1 and audible has 4 of the 5 books. I had already read "No Longer a Gentleman" and had the feeling I was stepping into a story that had already started because of the way it referenced other characters, so I was pleased to figure out that this was the start of that series.

I like to start at the beginning, makes for greater understanding and allows the story to build. Despite the bland description, I found this to be an enjoyable read with likable characters. I will be reading the rest of the series.

no where NEAR her best

I have read almost all her books - this was a step down and SOOOOO corny!! why did she go main stream trashy here?? so "oh, his chest is so alluring and oh, how he is instantly attracted" give me a break - shame - I thought this would have had potential, not this time!

DREADFUL narration

Read this one. Narration is horrible. Good story but really hard to trudge through. No difference in voice. Get Kindle.

Kate Rawson is so bad. Everyone sounds like some sort of cackling old witch. Again, avoid this one. Read it. Audible should really be more careful in chosing book narration.

Story is well crafted.

This is the first book in the Lost Lords series. It provides information that is useful in later books. The narrator made listening difficult at Tim’s. The accents were unrealistic.

Disappointing ...

The premise was good, and held promise. However, it ultimately it proved to be disappointing overall. Even though there were many unimportant details about this and that, there was very little substantiating the strength of these two as a couple. Without giving too much away, there were also very limited developments of any kind and random details presented without any depth then never touched on again (aka: a lot of fill & fluff).
The book was loaded with SO much cheesiness - which is a huge turn-off for me. The narrator certainly didn’t help due to her performance style.

OMG.....tough going

Mary Jo is a talented author with a special gift for telling a good story and creating strong and interesting characters. Poor narration can take all the power from the characters and interest in the story. I listened to the end because I wanted to know Adam's story. Wish I had read the book.

Intricate story line , had to focus to not miss any of the plot lines being brought together in the last chapters of the book.

I love a book to have multiple story lines that keep the action moving, and problems that have to be worked out to make the final smooth finish to the story. This book kept up the suspense right to he end. Very enjoyable story!

Long chapters

I love the story just wish the audio version would have been for.After differently. A case of amnesia and a character needing the protection of marriage.

no draft to narration

the story was good but narration spoilt it for me. I didn't know who was talking till she said.

the story was good. first I heard from this writer.

I really hope the next book is better, it has a different reader.

Loved the story

The story was very good but it was ruined by the narrator. All the male voices either sounded like 13yo boys or like effeminate men or women. Basically when Adam and Mariah spoke you couldn't tell who was talking if it didn't say, their voices were the same. Also from 1 chapter or scene to the next there was no pause at all, you realise it's another scene because the characters change. I definitely won't be listening to any more books narrated by Kate Rawson, that was the first and the last, so I'm pleased to see that the next book of the series is narrated by Simon Prebble.
