Publisher's Summary

An infamous sea captain of the British Royal Navy, Devlin O'Neill is consumed with the need to destroy the man who brutally murdered his father. Having nearly ruined the Earl of Eastleigh financially, he is waiting to strike the final blow. And his opportunity comes in the form of a spirited young American woman, the earl's niece, who is about to set his cold, calculating world on fire…Born and raised on a tobacco plantation, orphan Virginia Hughes is determined to rebuild her beloved Sweet Briar. Daringly, she sails to England alone, hoping to convince her uncle to lend her the funds. Instead, she finds herself ruthlessly kidnapped by the notorious Devlin O'Neill, and will soon find her best-laid plans thwarted by a passion that could seal their fates forever…

Great Listen! Always enjoy Brenda Joyce

The narration was good, the story line well developed and written. Just a wonderful story, the characters are complicated, wish the Shawn character would have developed more. Long, good listen. It won't disappoint and is well worth a credit.

Painful narration

Would you try another book from Brenda Joyce and/or Christina Thurmond?

I enjoy books by this author.
If only these horribly forced British accents could be monitored.
It's hard to listen to an American 'over-doing' the British characters.
Completely spoiled the book for me......I gave up after an hour, hence the story is rated low.

What do you think your next listen will be?

Rogue Herries by Hugh Walpole
