Publisher's Summary

Renowned storyteller Gaelen Foley unfurls the seductive tale of the rakish Lord Alec Knight, who never looked for love - until it was right in front of him....

Lord Alec Knight, the most daring and handsome rogue in all of London, is a smooth-talking aristocrat with an abundance of high-society lady admirers. With his irresistible wit, lucky hand at the gaming tables, and enticing charisma, he can have any woman he wants. But when the only girl he would have considered marrying ties the knot with someone else, Alec realizes he doesn't want to be with just any lady - he wants to find the love of his life.

The boldly spirited, beautiful Miss Becky Ward takes his life by storm after he rescues her from peril. Alec soon learns that she is on the run from her cousin, the murderous Prince Mikhail Kurkov. Becky has uncovered a menacing secret about the prince - now nothing will stop him from hunting her down.

In the midst of danger, Alec and Becky find themselves deeply drawn to each other. After the two spend an all-consuming night of sin, Becky's knight in shining armor vows on his honor to protect her until the end. But before long, Alec is protecting her with more than honor - and it seems the once untamed rake of London just may have found what he has been searching for all along... true love.

Pretty Good

I got this book on a sale and it was well worth it. Definitely interesting and was not a bad selection at all. I enjoyed the characters, the plot and general storyline. I would not hesitate to listen to another book by this author.

An unexpected treat!

This book was my first experience of Gaelen Foley and I was very pleasantly surprised. It was very well written and read. I had not read any historical romances before either so this book was a joy in that sense as well. I intend to read/ listen to more of Gaelen Foley's books! I only wish that more of them were available in audio edition as well.

Wonderful story

I love this book I was captivated from start to end. The only reason I gave 4 instead of 5 because I felt the ending was bit rushed. Still there were some good steamy scenes and the narrator did a good job. Overall worth the credit.

Great light listening romance

Well-written story with good narration. This is a nice stand-alone historical romance with a little intrigue and suspense. I will definitely look at other books by this author.

Narrator kills the Story

How did the narrator detract from the book?

The narration is very bland. Monotone. She has poor inflection so the characters emotions do not come through her voice. They sound the same when happy and when sad- flat. Hard to tell if and when a character is speaking.

Very good book.

I totally enjoyed this book. The story was very good. The characters good. The narration was pretty good too. I doubt I would have bought this book but it was on sale for 4.95 and I am glad I did. It is very much worth regular price and or a credit.

Just Terrible!

This is the worst book I have ever "tried" to listen to and I am so sorry I wasted my valuable credits. I read other reviews and ratings and so I trusted them for a good book. NOT! I tried to be patient with all the smut for 3 solid chapters and then gave it up.Unless you really enjoy that sort of thing do not bother with this listen. There was not enough substance to the story and character development to make me willing to wade and sort through the rest of it. I will delete this one from my library.
