In this lush and seductive novel, exciting new author Tessa Dare takes desire to brazen heights.
Ever the bold adventuress, Lucy Waltham has decided to go hunting for a husband. But first she needs some target practice. So she turns to her brother's best friend, Jeremy Trescott, the Earl of Kendall, to hone her seductive wiles on him before setting her sights on another man. But her practice kisses spark a smoldering passion that could send all her plans up in smoke.
Jeremy has an influential title, a vast fortune, and a painful past full of long-buried secrets. He keeps a safe distance from his own emotions, but to distract Lucy from her reckless scheming, he must give his passions free rein. Their sensual battle of wills is as maddening as it is delicious, but the longer he succeeds in managing the headstrong temptress, the closer Jeremy comes to losing control. When scandal breaks, can he bring himself to abandon Lucy to her ruin? Or will he risk his heart and claim her for his own?

Ruined by poor narration
- Kimberly "I enjoy historical, paranormal, and contemporary romance. Also steampunk, sci-fi, fantasy, suspense, and fiction. I'm open to about anything"
Dreadful, slow, awful reading ruins great tale
The reader. Poor Tessa Dare wrote a lively, witty and very entertaining romance, which the reader has utterly ruined in her prissy, ponderous, overly slow, oddly articulated reading. It's as if she were reading it for the simple minded or English-as-second-language students.
Both hero and heroine. He's a rake and friend of the heroine's older brother, she's in love with another of her brother's friends and trying to practice her 'wiles' on the rake.
See above. If this isn't her first job, let it please be her last.
Read the book, avoid this audiobook, it will detract from your enjoyment of the author's ready and very sly wit. Such a delightful story deserves an equally deft, and droll performance. This is a do-over for me. I regret I cannot get a refund, I'm that annoyed.
