The Dangerous Lord Darrington is not a man to be welcomed into a house of unprotected women! He may be an earl, but even in the wilds of Yorkshire, Beth Forrester has heard tales of the incorrigible rake that make her toes curl…Unexpectedly hosting such a scandalous celebrity is only the first of Beth's problems. Now the wicked Lord Darrington has found out about the dark secret she will do anything to protect. How to buy a rake's silence? There is only one way - with her body!
This is one of those books that would have been a totally different listen had the narrator's voices of the characters of Lord Guy Darrington and his friend Davey sounded stuck-up, smug, aggressive and hard so I just couldn't relate to him at all and this sadly reflects my 3 star rating of what could have been a 5 star book.
The plot was interesting, it had murder, theft, double crossings and there were sex scenes but these weren't very descriptive (may or may not put you off) but because of the narration nothing warmed me to their plight. Therefore, instead of leaving me savouring, reminiscing and mulling over the ending of a good listen (you know how a good one gets you) it left me empty and gladly anticipating my next listen.
Worth a credit? For me it's sadly a NO until it's re-narrated, but I did think the actual story was ok.
