On the eve of her profession as a nun, Lady Graeye Charwyck is called home to Medland by the father who disavowed her years earlier for the devil's mark she bears. Desperate to escape the convent, she agrees to wed a man she detests to provide an heir for her family's holdings. But when the king declares the Charwyck lands forfeit and awards them to their enemy, Graeye once more finds herself discarded. Grieved by her father's plans to return her to the convent, she yields to impulse and casts aside her virtue only to discover that the knight with whom she sinned is the new lord of Medland.
Baron Gilbert Balmaine is a man nearly eaten through with desire to see the end of the Charwyck line for all the ills the family has visited upon his own. With the heir dead, the only remaining survivor too aged to beget another, and their lands forfeited for the atrocities committed against the Balmaines, light lies ahead--until Gilbert learns there is a daughter. And his world darkens further when he realizes she is the one who, on a starry night, tempted him past temptation. Certain she intended to trap him into marriage, he vows he will not rest until she is back within the walls of her abbey. Now if only he can forget her. If only that night did not have such far-reaching consequences...

Cute but absolutely boring!!!
The narrator was absolutely great, her voice is beautiful, BUT the story was just so boring and predictable. It did not keep my attention, it was the basic...shes in trouble, they meet and have sex, then they cant be together but they both want to and she becomes preganant, they realize they are in love, baby is born and they get married and this is dragged out for 7hrs and 48 min. It lacks everythings from making you laugh, cry, connect with the characters, and keeping you engaged to the story...
