Publisher's Summary

A ruthless tycoon
Savage ambition has brought common-born Rhys Winterborne vast wealth and success. In business and beyond, Rhys gets exactly what he wants. And from the moment he meets the shy, aristocratic Lady Helen Ravenel, he is determined to possess her. If he must take her virtue to ensure she marries him, so much the better....
A sheltered beauty
Helen has had little contact with the glittering, cynical world of London society. Yet Rhys' determined seduction awakens an intense mutual passion. Helen's gentle upbringing belies a stubborn conviction that only she can tame her unruly husband. As Rhys' enemies conspire against them, Helen must trust him with her darkest secret. The risks are unthinkable...the reward a lifetime of incomparable bliss.

Would you listen to Marrying Winterborne again? Why?

Yes The story is very good and so is the narration!!

What other book might you compare Marrying Winterborne to and why?

Secrets of a Summer Nights. There are similarities between Simon Hunt and Rhys Winterborne of Marrying Winterborne.

Have you listened to any of Mary Jane Wells’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

I am not sure. But she did an excellent job in narration Marrying Winterborne!! Very good Narrator!!

Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?


Any additional comments?

I Loved, Loved Marrying Winterborne!!

Let me say I saw a review that said this was a republished book by Lisa Kleypas. That is NOT TRUE!!. I have been reading this authors books since 1993 and this is NOT A REPRINT!! There is a similarity with Simon Hunt from Secrets of a Summers Night. But they are not the same characters at all.

Now on to the review. I loved Helen she is a strong female character and very feminine. She not hard or cold like so many Historical romance heroines are. She is strong as nails but as soft and kind and sensible as Cream.

Rhys Winterborne is my new imaginary lover. He is a wonderful hero and he does all that is necessary for his heroine Helen. The love they share just oozes off the pages. It's realistic and the story feels like a historical romance instead of a contemporary romance pretending to be Historic.

The secondary characters Mrs. Fernsby and Lady Berwick are colorful and delightful. The whole story is a pleasure to read.

This story starts out with hot sexy and sensuous loving making scenes, which I feel was necessary to the way the story is written. Also, it shows a clear commitment that Helen has made toward Rhys. I really like the fact that there is virtually no ridiculous Angst in this story. Angst is used for authors who have no story to tell. Lisa Kleypas is one of the best and most authentic Historical Romance authors there is!!

I Highly Recommend Marrying Winterborne!! I really can't wait for the next book in the Ravenel series.

Read "Cold Hearted Rake" first...

I read a lot of reviews were people complained because this book wasn't good as a standalone. "Cold Hearted Rake" is the predecessor to this book. It does have a lot of story that helps to understand the story in "Marrying Winterborne" more, but having read both books, I really felt like this book would've been fine if you haven't read the other one first. Obviously if you have the opportunity grab the other one first then come back for this one, but if you don't want to, you wouldnt onow what you were missing.
Rhys is such a great character. I really love when characters just fall in love. I love when the book proceeds along the path of them being in love and not constantly at odds. There was the part of the storyline where there with conflict, and I admit that I actually expected the worst. I felt anticipation right along with Helen. Rhys is a standup character and handled the whole thing wonderfully. The chemistry was great with them and it was easy to feel with them, that they were in love.
I appreciated being able to see the characters from the previous book, and look forward to the rest of them evolving! I want to see West fall in love!!!
Mary Jane Wells does a fantastic job of having varying character voices, and keeping track of them! It took me a little getting used to, in the first book, at how she actually acts some of the reading out, but once you get used to it its fun.
