Publisher's Summary

Noah St John, the Duke of Huntly, lost his parents when he was a young boy and grew up with solicitors as guardians. When he met Rubina Leone he fell instantly in love with her. For the first time in his life he believed that he could be happy. Until fate stepped in the way and tore his heart to shreds - in a fit of anger Rubina left him. The ship she sailed on found its way to a watery grave. After years of mourning her loss he decides to marry again. Only this time he wouldn't engage his heart. He no longer had one.

Rubina Leone St John, the Duchess of Huntly had always intended to return to Noah. Before she had the chance to board a ship a deranged former suitor kidnapped her. When she at last escapes she has one thought. Return to England and to the only man she ever loved.

Rubina races home to stop her husband's wedding, but will she be able to bring Noah's heart around or will she be too late to rekindle their love?

    I was so looking forward to Noah's story and this book did not disappoint. Rubina is everything I thought Noah's wife would be. Beautiful independent and strong willed almost to a fault. Another great historical romance by Dawn Brower and Daisy Scott did a great job bringing the story to life.

    "What an intriguing read mystery, romance, suspense"
    Any additional comments?

    After listening to this I can’t wait to listen to the rest in the series. I found this to be very intriguing read with a little mystery, romance, revenge, hate, desire good and bad, suspense, passion, lies, heat and steam at its finest. It will break your heart from the start leaving you wishing there was something you could do to help each character. The book starts with Rubina being kidnapped and finding out her husband is dead. For many years she believed this her world as she knows it isn’t worth living without him leaving her in the arms of his killer. She will not give in to the mad man’s desires and he will never find her in his bed. If she can’t have the man she loves there will be no man for her at all. Near deaths door she is found by her brother after being abused for so many years there isn’t much left of the sister he once knew. This is a story filled with so much pain, desire, trying to protect the ones you love only to make matters worse with each step you take.

    Ms. Scotts narration was outstanding she really pulls the listener in with her very talented voice she delivers wonderful character voices you get lost in. There was a few that were close to the other but you could still tell who was talking and just what they were feeling. She has a powerful voice that gives many different accents which keeps the listener invested in the story. Her male voices were just as wonderful as her females. Ms. Scott really puts lots of emotion in to the story giving you a very vivid picture you have no trouble seeing in your mind. You always know who is taking and just what they are feeling. If any breaks were taken I could not tell. I found no higher or lower volume than any other place in this audio. Her performance was outstanding pulling me in taking me away making me feel what each character was going through. She has a delightful rich voice that is a pleasure to listen to it is smooth, clear that really took me away making me forget I was listening. I was so invested in this audio I found things to do so I would not have to put it down. Her tones and emotion are right on the money given you one highly emotional entertaining listen. I am very pleased with this narrator and look forward to listening to more of her work.

    Once Rubina is rescued she finds her husband is very much alive and about to be married. Her tempter gets the better of her as she flies into a rage how dare he move on when she has been to hell and back. Once she gets her hands on him he will learn what hell is. Just wait until you get to the scene where she walks in on his at the church on his wedding day, lord that woman is out for flesh but still stays calm even when her emotions are out of control. You could have heard a pen drop as she said her peace leaving everyone stunned as she walks out of the church. That is until Noah comes to his senses and is hot on her heels keeping us very entertained as he tries to keep his temper through all the lies his wife is feeding him. She might have left him once but she will never leave him again. He must do some fast talking to get her to agree to his big demands. Ruby would give anything once she forgives him for moving on in his life with another woman to hold him in her arms again but with the danger of death near she knows she must keep to her plans to keep her believed safe and alive.

    This is a very well written story full of danger, suspense, stalking, action, adventure and very emotional which is fast moving and at times keeping you on the edge of your seat. At times I have to wonder what Rudy is thinking when she not only puts herself in danger but her friends as well. Noah had my heart from the first with the past and what is happening around him. He does very well at pinning Rudy down but she just is not giving him the answers he wants. At first I felt very sorry for Ruby and then not so much just to come right around again to the first. The author gives an outstanding plot with wonderful characters. I found there were times I was cheering the characters on and other times when I yelled NO DON’T DO IT! The author had my attention from start to finish along with my heart from the first page. I am guessing her brother’s story is next to be written it looks to be just as interesting and exciting as this one is. I can hardly wait to read the past books and the next one. I just loved this from start to finish. The author has an amazing way of getting to her readers with vivid details and wonderful scenes that captive the read.

    The books starts right in the middle of a middle of a kidnapping and the story never dulls. This book will keep you entertained and the narration is fabulous. Would recommend this book to everyone even they don't like historical books I feel you would love this too.

    I've rarely met an audio book I didnt like. I love rom-com, cozy murder mystery, and self-help.

    "Enjoyed it very much!"

    This is the first book in this series I have listened to and I loved it. I loved Noah and the way he took charge immediately. He wasn't gonna let his chance fall through and even though I was a little frustrated with Ruby I still enjoyed it. Looking forward to listening to more books narrated by Daisy Scott. she did an excellent job. I was voluntarily provided this free review copy audiobook by the author, narrator, or publisher.

    "Good"
    What did you like best about A Hidden Ruby? What did you like least?

    I liked the whole premise of the story but I probably would have enjoyed it more if I had read the previous books in the series as I felt that I was missing some plot and character development. The narration was good and I would definitely look for more books by the author and those performed by Daisy Scott.
