"A terrific tale about a wickedly seductive hero and a wonderfully unconventional heroine....this fairy-tale-like love story [has] a dash of danger in a successful bid to please readers who like witty and sinfully sensual Regency romances." (Booklist0
"Laural Merlington's saucy rendition of Danny's Cockney accent meshes cleverly with her portrayal of Jeremy's deep, sensual voice. Her expert pacing transforms this novel into an all-encompassing listening experience." (AudioFile)
