Publisher's Summary

This is an erotic romance, intended for listeners 17 years and older. Aspects of BDSM.

"Ti amo, mia cara".

The fine art of persuasion. Darius Rourke and his burning passion for a woman. The gentle Marianne... as beautiful as she is mysterious. When presented with an opportunity to make her his bride, Darius takes it, and knows Marianne will finally belong only to him. Or will she? Marianne carries a secret. Something she believes will prevent her from ever being worthy to be loved by any man - even the masterful Darius, despite the fact he captivates her utterly.

A look... A caress... A kiss... A brooding sensuality. A lushly passionate tale of lovers entangled in the discovery of each other's sins and secrets. As Darius and Marianne embark upon a journey together, they will find that learning to command is just as important as learning to surrender. A man who knows what he wants... A woman who needs him in order to know her worth...

Loved the story. Absolutely loved the narration.

Loved the story. Absolutely loved the narration. I Ioved that it was a split narration by characters during the story instead of at the end of chapters.

Hot Dark Erotic Love Story!

I've read books four times the length of this one, but they didn't have 1/4 the passion of this one. I will...I must read it again. This is not a typical taboo Victorian story written by Anonymous. This is a Victorian LOVE STORY! A very very HOT love story.

Stupendous!!

A beautiful addition to the "Blackstone" books. It's amazing how things over the centuries tie everything and everyone together. The narrators were perfect and played the roles wonderfully. This is a must read if you listen to any of the other books by Raine... she is truly talented!!!

Loved this book

Romance In Every Sense Of The Word!

Marianne is a sweet girl who holds guilt and a feeling of not deserving the good life.
Daris is a single man about a decade older than Marianne...but upon seeing her as a child and teenager developed an attachment...so left for a few years until she grew up and found he was still attracted to her.
Marianne’s mother has died and her father drank and lost money setting Daris up to convince Marianna to marry him.
Either feels like they really deserve each other..but always find a way to care and love each other.
The source of their self worth comes out and they deal lovingly with each other.
Love a romance that doesn’t have painful angst all the way through.
I truly love Raine Miller books.
Shane East is wonderful as always and aindia Baldwin has the sweetest lovely accent...Fantastic job by both.
Well worth the credit or money.

I love this book!

Mary Anne and Darius! What a beautiful love story! I love how they share their hurt and past. How they fall in love. I love the passion between them. And the ending is perfect.
I am new to Ms. Miller books and I am loving them!

A beautiful love story

This book will stay with me. The story was incredibly well written and the narration was superb. I found this before other works by Raine Miller, and I was happy to find references to Darius and Marianne in The Blackstone Affair series.

Both narrators hit the perfect tone for this story. Frankly, Shane East could read the phone book and make it come alive, but thankfully there are wonderful stories out there for him to lend his magic to instead.

Good read

Great quick story.
Interesting how it fits in with the last book in the Blackstone story.
Great to hear Shane East again. He has an awesome reading voice.
