Publisher's Summary

Lisa Kleypas is back with a stunning new historical romance!
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!

Worth the point!

This was a sweet story. Devin is a jerk with a loser brother, Weston. Devin inherits the Ravenell estate even though he and his loser brother dont want it. The estate, however, saves the loser brother and gives him purpose as well as making Devin see a softer side of life. Kathleen and her three sisters in law are anticipating being abandoned, however the werent, and got much more than they thought. I always enjoy a book where the main couple is working towards a relationship without a bunch of chaos getting them there... this was one of those. There were obviously obstacles, but nothing thst made you feel pain.

I also really like how in this one book, we can so clearly see all the potential upcoming stories. I hope we'll see Westons story as well as the girls' stories. I am actually going right into the next book "Marrying Winterbourne" which is something I very very rarely do.

It always takes a bit to get used to the narrator, no matter if theyre new or familiar. MJW was new to me and her reading style even newer. She is the first narrator that I can recall actually 'acted' as well. She would sigh when the character sighed, or whine, or cry or be angry... It took a little over halfway for me not to cringe. She obviously put in a lot of effort, and once I got used to it, I quite liked it. She did a great job on the various voices and keeping track to not mix them up. (I would love to know how the narrators do that so well!)
