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!

    Story
    "Enjoyable. Humorous."

    Christina keeps secrets and lies to Lyon a lot. He knows she is lying - so that’s ok with me. Other authors annoy me when lies do not fit motivations. That does not happen here. Christina wants a temporary marriage and plans to divorce him soon after. He gets bent out of shape over that.

    One reviewer complained it was not historically accurate about Indians in America. If that’s true, I don’t care. I enjoyed it for what it was – light, fun, escape, and romance.

    AUDIOBOOK NARRATOR:
    Susan Duerden is fabulous. She’s a chameleon with her voices. I felt like different people were talking. She does men really well - and sexy. She has an excellent narration style. I’ll listen to her anytime.

    Genre: historical romance

    "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.

    "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.

    "Most entertaining"

    This is a typical Garwood book mixing romance with a strong female role. Garwood writes in a manner that allows one to listen to the story without getting lost.

    "Pretty good story"

    I enjoyed the story and the characters. The narrator was a little annoying, but not as annoying as Karen White, so its all good.
