Publisher's Summary

Christina Bennett had taken London society by storm. The ravishing beauty guarded the secret of her mysterious past until the night Lyon, Marquis of Lyonwood, stole a searching, sensuous kiss. An arrogant nobleman with a pirate's passions, he tasted the wildfire smoldering beneath Christina's cool charm and swore to possess her....

But the feisty and defiant Christina would not be so easily conquered. Mistress of her heart and of her fortune, she resisted Lyon's sensuous caresses. She dared not surrender to his love...for then, she must also forsake her precious secret...and her promised destiny!

    "Excellent Well-developed story"

    This is a great story, well developed with strong believable characters. From the first, the background story drew me in and held my interest all the way to the end. I especially liked Lyon and how he stayed so confused by his delightful lioness that you couldn't help being on his side.

    Definitely worth the credit. As usual July Garwood has produced an entertaining novel. Susan Duerden did a very good job of narrating.

    "Narration irksome"

    This plot was so removed from reality that the characters' motivations rang hollow as well. I have been a fan of Garwood for many years and this was far too fabricated even for a romance. I like a historical romance to include at least some historical credibility. Jedediah Smith and about a handful of traders entered the Black Hills in 1823 and the draw of gold and contact with wagon train traffic did not take place for many years later... Although the narrator had clear diction, she shouldn't have even tried to cover all of the voices. I find that women trying to imitate men can make a hero sound way too boorish, and in this book the heroine sounded like a 10 year old child; when she was a baby she sounded like nails on chalkboard. Most irksome was the inflection the narrator employed for about four out of every five non-dialogue sentences. This resembled text to text-to-speech, with sentences rising in the same arc and ending on the same note, again...and again...

    "Cute book"

    I am happy to see Julie Garwood's older books being released in audio form. I have been disappointed in the narrator that has been chosen but she seems to be improving. I hated this narrator in The Secret and still want a do over on that book but she was okay in this book. At least she is not Whispering but it still seems like she is telling it like a bed time story. I see that she is doing the other JG books and I just hope she get better. These Books are cute and funny that I recommend to anyone.

    I love being swept away by a new romance and thankfully Audible's ever growing Library means I get to indulge myself over and over again

    "IT'S A WORTHY FIVE STAR LISTEN"

    This book is full of GREATS - the narration, the author, the storyline, the dialogue, the characters, their chemistry and, of course, the romance.

    It's all been said before by my fellow reviewers so all that I can add is that it was a joy to listen to this different, action packed tender, sweet, sad, funny, emotional story that stands out from the crowded bookshelves because it did such a good job of mentally time travelling you to a bygone era and feeding you a romance that nourishes your mind as well as your heart.

    Worth a credit? Absolutely YES.

    Story
    "Shaking my head..."
    Any additional comments?

    As a real life Dakota woman, the use of my cultural background is disturbing. It might've been nice had JG did some research instead of casually flinging stereotypes on the page. Seriously, I wouldn't have minded if she had at least tried to show some effort toward authenticity. I bought this book long ago and couldn't remember hearing it. Now I know why I didn't finish it. I've read other Julie Garwood books and they were good. This one just made me a bit angry.

    Also, Susan Duerden's narration is truly cringe inducing. Her attempt at accents and the weird intonation she uses really irritated me. With other books she's read, I've listened at 1.25x and it was ok. This one was not.

    "Took too long"

    I love Garland books but this silly girl drug her story on to long. not revealing the truth to anyone. It would have been ok if the story didn't seem silly. I'll keep listening for the last few chapters. Hopefully this will improve.

    I tried but this ridiculous Native American "customs" theme is draining as it is still being concealed with 3/4 of the book read.

    "Liked the story - voices were off"

    I liked this story but the voices were hard to get used to on the beginning. This was especially true of the main character Christina. All the voices seemed raspy and bit out of place to the story line. However, the story was engrossing enough that by the end the voices didn't bother me.
