Publisher's Summary

"When a Chattan male falls in love, strike his heart with fire from above...."
They call him Lord Lyon, proud, determined - and cursed. He is in need of a bride, but if he falls in love, he dies. His fervent hope is that by marrying - and having a son - without love, perhaps he can break the curse's chains forever.
Enter beautiful Thea Martin - a duke's headstrong, errant daughter and society's most brilliant matchmaker. Years ago, she and Lyon were inseparable, until he disappeared from her life without a word. Now she is charged with finding Lyon's bride - a woman he cannot love for a man Thea could love too well.

Brilliant start to a new series

Lord Lyon is cursed - he must not fall in love 'cause if he does then the curse will claim him. He has known Thea since they were children and, although he has tried, he cannot stop the attraction between them from building. Thea, now widowed with 2 children, doesn't believe in the curse.... that is, until it's far too late.

Loved the story, great family interaction, good romance but BEWARE this book does not have a wrapped-up ending like so many historical romances - I think its a trilogy.

Definitely worth the credit, I'm glad I used mine on this one.

Suspense and romance

What did you like best about this story?

I liked that there is a mystery/suspense that carries on to the next book. The friendship that develops between the main characters in this book, as well that all sub characters are equally important. The kids in this book are too cute! (reminded me of my son). The plot of the book is unique and yet very familiar. I would give the story a B+. I am looking forward to the next book in this series.

Have you listened to any of Rosalyn Landor’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

I love Rosalyn Landor's voice in all of the books she has read - she doesn't disappoint.
