Publisher's Summary

Lady Elizabeth, the youngest and most headstrong of the three Banning sisters, has been engaged three times, and has most scandalously broken off all three engagements. Her fear of becoming any man’s property has kept her from marriage and earned her a reputation in the town as a heartbreaking flirt.

Neil Severin is a wicked rogue, black of heart and black of reputation. A man of no morals, devoid of compassion, he is a government-sanctioned assassin. And his newest target is a man Beth holds dear. When the flame-haired beauty thwarts his plan, Neil exacts his own brand of spicy revenge.
Beth despises him. Neil doesn’t care. But circumstances most unexpectedly throw them together, and with Beth’s life in danger, Neil finds himself in the unexpected role of hero, racing to save her before it’s too late.

What he never expects is the twist fate hands him: instead of his saving her, Beth winds up saving him. In a fight for their lives, Neil and Beth travel the British countryside, fleeing the ruthless killers out for Neil’s blood, the men after Beth, and their growing attraction to each other. Can Neil forgive himself for his past and accept Beth’s love? Can Beth overcome her fear and trust Neil? Will she have to choose between him and her family? And most important, can they both survive long enough to begin a new life together?

An Enjoyable Read

A less then perfect hero, a headstrong heroine, and a few unexpected turns… This book was worth the credit.

I COULDN'T STOP LISTENING

Final book in the trilogy and, in my opinion, the best but it leaves me wishing there were more sisters or even a brother. I know that's just being greedy but if, like me, you're into this genre, then this series has been one of the best.

The magic synergy between a good author, great book and a talented narrator all come together in this f...f...f... all right I'll say it FINAL book in the Banning Sisters story.

Now KR what's next for us ? Maybe the Banning Brothers or the Banning Cousins or even the Bannings the Next Generation. Whatever it is I'm sure your fans are, like me, waiting with eager anticipation.

Worth a credit? That would be a definite YES.

AMAZING!

Karen had done it again! The book was a perfect ending to the series. The heroine Beth Banning was mesmerizing! I loved the suspense and the turn of events. Although I have to admit that my best book of the series is book 2 " Irresistible" . But I loved the 3 sisters. A must read. Rosalyn Landor, again thank you for such a perfect performance.

entertaining and relaxing

I really like the narrator. I do slow the speed to 80 as she speaks very quickly but each character is well presented and distinctive. the story line is a little different and entertaining. the heroine is feisty. enjoyed this story from start to finish

Booooooring

Would you try another book from Karen Robards and/or Rosalyn Landor?

I've read a few of Karen's books in the past, however none have really stuck out for me. Rosalyn's voice was not my cup of tea. Something about it was just so grating to hear. I got 5 hours in and then gave up, I tried very hard to finish it over the course of a few months but I've decided now its just not worth my time. I wasn't impressed.

What was most disappointing about Karen Robards’s story?

I was just so slow. There were potentially a lot of exciting things happening, but it just took forever to get to them. I don't know if it was just over description or if Rosalyn just read entirely too slow for my liking.

Would you be willing to try another one of Rosalyn Landor’s performances?

I don't think so. I just really can't handle listening to that voice for over 10 hours.
