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.

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.

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.

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.

OMG.....tough going

Mary Jo is a talented author with a special gift to tell a good story and to create 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.

Even better in audiobook form

I love MJPs books I think I’ve bought all of her historical romances and enjoyed all of them. I’ve discovered that many books that I’ve liked drag when you listen to them. This one doesn’t. It’s a perfectly passed storyline that keeps you involved throughout. Aww

VERY DISAPPOINTING

I had read the book before listening to the story. I must say that I was very disappointed in this experience. I'm sure the narrator is good at reading books but not at narrating. She read this book like a run-on sentence. There was no pause between scenes, different characters would "barge in" on different scenes/places of the story. It almost felt as if she was just trying to hurry up and get it over with. You can tell she didn't enjoy the book. She made the characters seem flat and bland. My imagination did a better job than she did. I hope she doesn't narrate the other books in the series, but if she does I won't even bother with them. VERY DISAPPOINTED!!😡 The one star was for effort, if she gave any.

What an excellent book!!

This is such a well written story! The plot is deep and the story is emotional. The narration does such a great job bringing Rainey and Kenzi 's characters to life! I listened to this story and fell in love with this couple. You will love this book!!!
