Publisher's Summary

When Persephone Lancaster receives a marriage proposal from the ill-tempered Duke of Kielder, she refuses - and then reconsiders. The obscene sum of money he's offering Persephone would save her family from ruin. With her characteristic optimism, she travels to the far reaches of Northumberland to wed a greatly feared stranger.

Lodged deep in a thick forest infested with wild dogs, the Duke's castle is as cold and forbidding as the Duke himself, a man with terrible scars on his body and his soul. But the Duke's steely determination to protect his heart at all costs is challenged by his growing attachment to his lovely and gentle bride. With caring persistence, Persephone attempts to pierce the Duke's armor and reach the man beneath. Yet, he cannot tolerate such exposure, and his repeated rejections take their toll. But when grave danger arises, the Duke realizes he must face the risk of revealing his true feelings or lose the woman he cannot live without.

    MY TAKE
    I <3 Adam so much. The Duke is so deep, and there's so much more to him than his crusty surface shows. I love how this story unfolds, with both Adam and Persephone slowly discovering each other, especially with her approach to being friends. I was excited to find it in audiobook--at last--and jumped at the chance to read the story again. The narrator did a decent job with the accents and kept the accents for when people were actually speaking.

    "Delightful"

    I loved this story and the characters. It was light hearted and the interaction of the main characters is well done.

    Story
    "Perhaps good story but couldn't finish"

    Was grabbed by the school, but couldn't get past chapter 7. The narrator , although she had a pleasant voice, she could not differentiate among speakers or even thoughts and narration. She also spoke so quickly and without pauses between speaker changes that you could not decide who was saying what to whom. I finally gave up even trying. If it lets me submit the rating with zero stars for the performance I will do so. If it requires me to put something in I regret I will have to put one instead of none.

    This really emphasizes the fact that a good narration is critical when a book is done in audio fashion. Sadly I will return this book and any book with this narrator that I have not read.

    "Don't pass this one up!"

    I love this book. It's one I'll re-read/listen to several times. It's a beauty and the beast type story. One of my favs!

    "Book was okay, the audiobook unbearable"

    The narration of this book is awful. I'm not sure why the producers didn't get a British narrator since the book is set in England. I have yet to hear an American narrator do justice to British accents. I had forgotten I had read the book. I usually like this author when I'm looking for a light, clean romance. The book was okay, I thought the duke was particularly unpleasant and unappealing. Listening to this made him annoying. He isn't personable to anyone and I don't understand why his best friend stayed around and subjected himself to his abuse and threats for years. One day I will learn why audiobooks are on sale-at least I didn't throw away a credit-

    "Okay Reading"

    I love Satah M Eden books. Just know that all the characters sounded the same in the Audible reading.
