Publisher's Summary

Lady Madeline Matthews would rather shame herself than sacrifice her freedom - which is why, to avoid a marriage to an aging, lecherous lord, she seeks out the company of Logan Scott. A torrid affair with the notorious womanizer would surely condemn her in the eyes of good society. Though a legend in the bedchamber, Logan is, in truth, an intensely private man tormented by past betrayals. Now a forward little minx is disrupting his life with her vibrant charm and unspoiled beauty, a high-spirited enchantress completely at sea in London’s sophisticated whirl. But when what begins with a kiss threatens to blossom into something more rapturous and real, will Logan and Madeline have the courage to drop the masks they hide behind in the name of love?

Boring, pradictable and repetitive

This is one of the worst books I have listened to in a long time! Although I ordinarily love Rosalyn Landor, I was not very impressed with the narration even from the beginning. By the time I had heard Lady Madeline go on and on about her insecurities for the 10th time I was ready to jump out of a window! I don't ordinarily like to write negative reviews because doubtless someone out there will or probably does love this book, and I totally respect that. However, I found this book to be terribly boring, predictable and repetitive, I could not even finish listening to it. I listened about 3/4 of the way and gave up for hopes of something better.
Madeline is very young, 18 fresh out of the schoolroom and promised to be married to an old man (sound familiar). She decides the best way to solve her problem is to have an affair with the most popular current stage performer, Logan Scott. Logan won't allow himself to fall in love but ultimately gives in to the beautiful Maddie (again, familiar). I like several of Lisa Kleypas' books and think she is amazingly talented. She has a strong ability to create detailed characters with true heartfelt problems, not to mention her ability to write a steamy love scene. Although, she must have been having a rough month (I highly doubt it took her longer than that) when writing this book because it comes nowhere close to the talents displayed in books such as "Stranger in my arms" or the "Wallflower" series. If you want to take the chance and like the book, great and I'm very happy for you. Those of you with histories like mine, skip it and go onto something better.

- bluebelle "When I clean, drive or exercise I listen to romance. The steamier the better but it must have a great story as well!"

Entertaining

It was an entertaining listen from Lisa but not her best . Was a bit bored at times . But as usual Rosalyn Landor's narration is the best !
