Firstly, this is actually book 2 of The Lost Lords of Pembrook series however, Audible hasn't yet listed book 1. It would have been nice to start at book 1 - She Tempts The Duke, but don't be put off as this is easily a 'stand alone' book.
Good story with a great chemistry between the roguish Tristan and Lady Anne who just can't help falling for his charms but they are both tortured by the past. There's an instant attraction that they both try to fight but, however hard they try, it builds and builds. Anne is being forced to marry but, despite their bond, she won't force him and he doesn't want to be tied down and the sea is calling him back.
It's a passionate and heartbreaking love story and, absolutely one of L.H.'s best. 9.5 hrs of pure listening pleasure.
Worth a credit? Definitely - this one is a MUST HAVE.

I've been waiting for this book to come out, since I fell in love with the first one in the series! This one was fantastic. I wasn't a fan of the narrator. But I love Lorraine Heath's books. Can't wait for book 3!

Where does Lord of Temptation rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?
It was better than some that I have listened too.
Would you be willing to try another book from Lorraine Heath? Why or why not?
What about Faye Adele’s performance did you like?
Her accent was fun to listen too and she has a soothing voice.

This is the 2nd book in the series of Lost Lords of Pembrook. The first book is not available on audible, however I did read it and it was fantastic, it was about Sebastian. This book, Lord of Tempation, is about Tristan and the 3rd book is about Rafe. I am looking forward to the 3rd book which is available on audible, and I am about to start it. I am not sure why audible does not have the books grouped as a series or why the 1st one is not available on audible. However, the order of this series is as follows:
She Tempts a Duke
Lord of Temptation
I hope this helps.
Also I thought the narrator has done a fantastic job!

Tristan is a ship captain and a contradiction. He's a Lord but eschews the title; he is educated but dresses almost like a ruffian and he appears insouciant yet is incredibly aware of all his surroundings. Tristan is a wanderer having been forced to sea at a young age. He is a restless soul.
He meets heroine, Lady Anne in a London tavern and he is attracted to her right away. She wants him to take her to her fiancé who left her four years earlier to fight in the Crimea. He declines her offer making her angry and she storms out.
Anne is determined to make her journey for many reasons and she is also determined to do things her way. Eventually Tristan agrees to transport her and they have a very interesting voyage. Anne almost bristles when she confronts Tristan and he enjoys their encounters but as the ship sails toward the Mediterranean these two drop their masks. Anne has been melancholy and guilt ridden, she needs to forgive herself and move on with her life. Tristan is scarred horribly from being separated from his brothers and losing his father, he is terrified of loving again.
Both characters try very hard to keep their hearts protected but soon they find themselves irresistibly drawn to each other. Both try to dismiss their feelings yet they just can't seem to let each other go. There are moments in this story which resonate with true heartache for the past and even for the present. Anne wants a family and Tristan wants freedom, they are at odds with each other over their futures yet neither wants to forgo seeing the other. This is a passionate couple, really demonstrative and many times they support each other in difficult circumstances. This is a truly romantic and memorable tale

Narrator's tone was depressing. Plot was weak and not engaging. I had a hard time liking the characters. I listen to be entertained but was bored.
Great character development, wonderful continuation of the series using book 1 characters as support. I didn't want to pause this book and was drawn in from the start!

Any additional comments?
<br/>Lord of Temptation is another very good love story between the 2nd Pembrook twins Lord Tristan Easton brother to the Duke of Keswick and Lady Anne Hayworth, daughter to the Earl of Blackwood. This is one Hot sensuous Romance between Triston and Anne. It was a whirlwind romance. <br/><br/>Anne has hired Captain Crimson Jack/Triston to take her to Scutari were her fiancé Water has been fighting the Crimean War. She needs to ask his forgiveness for an argument they had before he left for the war. Triston is intrigued and in lust with her. They make a bargain for her to secure passage on his ship the Revenge. Once onboard the attraction between the two is electric. Needless to say Triston is determine to have Anne before she reaches her love Walter. But there is one problem with that and I won't say what. Triston doesn't find out either right away.<br/><br/>Both Triston and Anne are tortured souls Triston because he and his 2 other brothers had to run for there lives when there uncle tried to kill them and they were just young boys. They have lived some pretty hard lives after there escape and it has shaped Triston's views on love and settling down in one place. The Sea is his home now. Anne is troubled by what she perceives she has done to hurt the love of her life Walter and she can't forgive herself just yet. <br/><br/>Lorraine Heath is one of the best Historical Romance authors writing today. Her romances centered around the couple and are very detailed with a backdrop of lively loveable secondary characters. Her stories are well developed with just the right amount of backstory for a series book. I encourage all lovers of HR to read "The Lost Lords of Pembrook!! <br/><br/> <br/><br/><br/>
I enjoyed getting to know the primary characters. Good story development. Nice to have side stories developing.
