Publisher's Summary

‘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 the 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…

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.

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.

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 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.

Meh...

Ya, this was one of those books...nothing special. All my books are starting to read the same for some reason. Come on, all of you potential earth changing as we know it, authors...rally your vocabularies :). Readers are hungry. Give us something with substance... Give us something we can really sink our teeth into. Move us!

Not even Shane East could save this one

Really wanted to like this one but the female narrator sounded like a child, the storyline was totally lacking and, while I read sexy romances all the time, this was almost pure porn. Spunk? Seriously? How Shane East read most of his lines with a straight face amazes. Pass this one by.

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.
