Publisher's Summary

“Lady Hawksworth, your husband is not dead.” With those words, Lara’s life turned upside down. Hunter, Earl of Hawksworth, had been lost at sea. Or so she’d been told. Their unhappy marriage - with its cold caresses and passionless kisses – was over. But now a powerful, virile man stood before her, telling secrets only a husband could know, and vowing she would once again be his wife in every way. While Lara couldn’t deny that this man with the smoldering dark eyes resembled Hunter, he was attentive and loving in ways he never was before. Soon she desperately wanted to believe, with every beat of her heart, that this stranger was truly her husband. But had this rake reformed – or was Lara being seduced by a cunning stranger?

    Story
    "Unlikeable heroine"

    As I listened to the book, I hoped Lara's cold, self-righteous character would soften as she got reacquainted with her returned-from-the-dead husband. Unfortunately, she never does soften. The author attempts to make her more acceptable to the reader by extolling all Lara's charitable works, but it was all too perfect, and too boring! And while Lara has time to sympathize with the orphaned children, she can't find any time to be charitable to her own husband. Instead she makes everything "all about Lara."

    Hunter is a great character, and I longed to love the book simply because he was in it! Unfortunately even Hunter couldn't save this book from being a trial.

    The narrator was fine, except her voice for Hunter made him sound gruff and old.

    "Probably the most annoying book I've listened to in a long time"

    I don't usually write reviews, but I was so irritated by this book that I felt like I had to say something. I haven't read a regency book that I've disliked as much as I do this one. I actually really like this author & she has written some of my favorite regency romances, but this one sucked. I downloaded it because it seemed to have high ratings, but I am so disappointed. The main character Laura is not likable. The only nice likable qualities she has is her love for her sister & charity, but besides that she's extremely wishy washy and hypocritical. I found myself rolling my eyes so hard at her and saying omg really?? Please just shut up. Not only was the main character not likable, but the story stretched on & on without really accomplishing much, towards the end I couldn't take it anymore and skipped through about an hour of it, needless to say I don't think I missed out on much.
    So in conclusion, if you like leading ladies who are wishy washy, hypocritical, self pitying and not very proactive plus a plot that needlessly stretches on without getting to the point, I think you will like this book.

    "Typical Lisa Kleypas story"
    What did you like best about Stranger in My Arms? What did you like least?

    Lisa Kleypas always has well developed characters but this story slowed down about half way through the story line.


    Would you recommend Stranger in My Arms to your friends? Why or why not?

    If you like Lisa Kleypas, you may like this book. If you've never read a Lisa Kleypas story, don't start with this book...it's not a good representation of her work.


    What does Rosalyn Landor bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    Rosalyn Landor is a very talented performer. That is part of the reason I purchased this audible book. Ms. Landor is able to give a variety of "voices" to the characters that make them come alive. However, although Ms. Landor's performance was good, it couldn't totally make up for the slow moving story line in the middle of the book.


    Could you see Stranger in My Arms being made into a movie or a TV series? Who should the stars be?

    I really can't see this particular book being made into a movie.


    Any additional comments?

    I'll keep reading Lisa Kleypas and purchasing books read by Rosalyn Landor.

    "Clever, passionate and good twists"

    Terrific plot - surprising - good character development and Roslyn Lador is always such an incredible reader - she brings the story alive. Could not put it down.

    I enjoy historical, paranormal, and contemporary romance. Also steampunk, sci-fi, fantasy, suspense, and fiction. I'm open to about anything

    "I'm not usually into historicals, but..."

    I enjoyed this one. My sister had recommended this author, so I got this on sale. I'll definitely give Lisa Kleypas more listening time.
    The story was good, I liked the characters, and the mystery of it all kept me going. Plus, there was the question of whether or not she was going to give him another chance in the bed, when she hated it so much before he went off to India. I'll listen to it again in the future, despite my preference for contemporary romance. Though I have been reading a lot of Amanda Quick in print.... (another recommendation from my lovely sister).
