Listeners have long waited for the return of New York Times best-selling author Lisa Kleypas to historical romance - and now she's back with her most breathtaking yet.
A twist of fate...
Devon Ravenel, London's most wickedly charming rake, has just inherited an earldom. But his powerful new rank in society comes with unwanted responsibilities...and more than a few surprises. His estate is saddled with debt, and the late earl's three innocent sisters are still occupying the house - along with Kathleen, Lady Trenear, a beautiful young widow whose sharp wit and determination are a match for Devon's own.
A clash of wills...
Kathleen knows better than to trust a ruthless scoundrel like Devon. But the fiery attraction between them is impossible to deny - and from the first moment Devon holds her in his arms, he vows to do whatever it takes to possess her. As Kathleen finds herself yielding to his skillfully erotic seduction, only one question remains:
Can she keep from surrendering her heart to the most dangerous man she's ever known?

I sidled up to this one with a bit of caution -- initial reviews were not glowing. Imagine my delight to discover not only is this a great book (Kleypas, duh) -- but it's a new kind of Kleypas novel. In fact, it felt more like a Jennifer Ashley "Mackenzie" novel, without the Scots twist, but with a seriously sexy hero, and a challenging love story.
I love reading reviews on here, and reviewers have saved me from some stinkers, but the initial reviews on this book -- in hindsight -- are perplexing. I'd say if you like either of those authors, give it a try.
Mary Jane Wells was wonderful here, as well. Her voice for Devon was a steamy revelation!
Highly Recommended -- by me!

Glad I ignored the bad reviews!
I LOVED this book! Dialogue - funny moments - steamy scenes - heart wrenching scenes - ALL SUPERB!
Hamlet the pig - West the brother - the twins! Truly never a dull moment.
I lost sleep - kept having to restart my sleep timer.
Narrator is GREAT!! Her Devon is sexy (which is sometimes hard to pull off with a female narrator)
Devon doesn't become a love sick following behind puppy. Kathleen isn't a fainting miss. Both are strong willed and stubborn - they work! The relationship doesn't slowly blossom - it was a bit abrupt - but then it was a small roller coaster ride.
Worth a credit - I'm already into book 2 and spending my next credit on book 3!
