Publisher's Summary

Lady Sophia Sydney would do anything to ensnare the unattainable Sir Ross Cannon. Her goal - to ruin his reputation and cause a scandal that would be the talk of all London. So she insinuates herself into his life by gaining his trust and living in his house.Every morning, her lush presence tempts him beyond all reason... the way she bends over the table to serve him the meals she has prepared...the way her hands oh, so gently - yet sensuously - brush against him. Every night, she promises with her eyes - and her body - that the hours before dawn could be spent in unbridled passion instead of restless sleep - if only he’d let her share his bed.
She knows he is falling more in love with her each day. But she never counted on falling in love with him. And she never dreamed he might very respectably ask for her hand in marriage...

Easily 5 stars. My favorite Kleypas

I hear a lot about any a Kleypas' other novels. And while I'm not usually a huge romance fan, I have been reading many books in the genre. I liked Karen Moning and Jeaniene Frost type books.
I have a soft spot for historical romance, that developed as teenager. I read the Knight in Shining Armor, by Jude Deveraux. If memory serves right, I read and reread it and cried, etc.
Anyway, I found a few historical romance novels I really liked. Lisa Kleypas writes in a way that I really respond to. I've liked all of her books that I've read, but this is easily my favorite.

I think the name makes it seem more smutty than it is.
I love this book and will read again. Narrator, as usual, rocks!!

- Benoibe "audio addict! Mostly interested in history and some historical fiction. Will Durant is my all time favorite. Loving the Great Courses too."

Good narration. OK book..

Any additional comments?

I had a hard time finishing this. Books with 350 pages or more just seem to amble on and on, saying nothing or the same thing over and over again. You could have taken 150 pages from this book, or any other book with this many pages, and it would have been a good book. The filler in these books is getting ridiculous.

Sooo, Sophie wants revenge. She gets hired as the Chief Magistrate’s assistant and the revenge begins. Unfortunately, she falls in love with him and he with her. He proposes and she says no to marriage but she’ll be his mistress. Really? The author made Sophia’s thought process kinda’ stupid. I really did liked Ross, the hero. He was kind and patient and an all-around wonderful guy. And as bad as Nick Gentry was supposed to be you could see a little niceness underneath.

As much as I like sex in my books that’s where most of the filler came from. Page after page after page of sex. I wish I would have counted the number of pages because it was kind of crazy. IMO it would have been much better with a mention of sexual tension most of the time instead of all that sex. Anyway, this is my 3rd book by this author and the last one. Too much filler for me and not enough meat of the story.

As to the narrator: I always enjoy Susan Duerden. She's just a really good narrator, whether she's laughing, crying, whispering, yelling, whatever, she does it all.
