Publisher's Summary

Of all the dukes in England, Jered Marcus Benton, the Duke of Bradford, was the wealthiest, most handsome - and most arrogant. And of all London’s ladies, he wanted the tender obedience of only one: Caroline Richmond.

She was a ravishing beauty from Boston, with a mysterious past and a fiery spirit. Drawn to the powerful duke, undeterred by his presumptuous airs, Caroline was determined to win his lasting love. But Bradford would bend to no woman - until a deadly intrigue drew them enticingly close. Now, united against a common enemy, they would discover the power of the magnificent attraction that brought them together…a desire born in danger, but destined to flame into love!

Love Julie Garwood.

This is not my favorite book by Julie but it was good to listen to it. My favorites are The Bride, The Lion's Lady, and The Secret. I hope the rest of her books come out on audio.

Good Story average narration

Love Garwood, have been a happy fan of her work for a number of years.
Unfortunatly the whispered and odd emphasis on the sound 'hhhhhh' truely irritating.

Worth the credit

I have read (or listened to) all the historic Garwood novels and no two are alike. Her descriptions are vivid and you are transported. Her men always start as beast but with the right women end up not as pussy cats but tamed lions. The women are smart, witty and strong. The plot keeps moving and the narrator is wonderful. Many good qualities and a welcome ending.

enjoyed this book

miss garwood did a good job with this book. i liked that it wasn't predictable as most of these types of books are. however the intimate scenes between to main characters could have been a bit more erotic or at the very least a bit more descriptive. the story it self was okay not a keep you in suspense story but it was entertaining for which when it comes to these types of books entertainment and a light story is what the reader is looking for i'm assuming, as it is for me
i'm not at all fond of this narrator but in this book she is far less annoying than in other books she reads.

Horrible narrator

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

No, I couldn't finish it because I found the narrator too irritating. I don't understand why this woman narrates so many books when she has such an annoying voice!!

Hated this narrator!

I love this book when I read it myself, but as an audio book it is terrible! This narrator is awful! I almost could not finish it. I cringed every time she said "father".

Couldn't listen to this lifelong favorite

I know that listening tastes are subjective, and I know there are tons of romance readers/listeners who enjoy Anne Flosnik as a narrator. But I can't stand listening to her. The guttural way she does the men's voices combined with the overly breathy way she ends sentences and does the female voices grates on my nerves. In the future, I'll be skipping books narrated by her. Which is unfortunate, because she does the narration for several of my favorite historical-romance authors.

Best Author

I have read all of her books several times and can never tire of them. She takes you into the time of the book and you feel as if you are there in the story.
