Desperate to help her widowed sister and baby escape a deadly pursuer, Lady Chastity Ware dresses as a highwayman and captures the first coach to travel down the road. Coming face-to-face with its occupant, the arrogant aristocrat Cyn Malloren, she orders him to drive her to a remote cottage.
Little does Chastity realize that after long months of recovering from his war wounds, the handsome Cyn is looking for adventure, and being abducted by a cocky highwayman - obviously a lovely woman in disguise - is even more than he had hoped for. Willingly he is drawn into her devilishly reckless plan...and helplessly he is seduced by her wonderfully wicked ways.
"A fast paced, rip-roaring and most 'delicious' read. This one is a keeper!" (RT Book Reviews)

Finally! we can listen to the Georgian (Malleron) books in audible form. This was the first book I read by Jo Beverley and I have been hooked ever since. She is a wonderful storyteller who brings to life the glittering, but dangerous world of Georgian England. Her tales are delightfully spicy, skillfully plotted, fast paced adventures. To protect her sister and her newborn, the notorious Chastity Ware must disguise herself as a boy in order to hold up a coach. Fortunately, they encounter the mischievously charming Cynric Malleron who, to relieve his boredom, comes to their rescue and helps them to flee across England. As they evade and escape capture a sensual, powerful love grows between the ill-fated lovers.
Cyn loves to seduce "Charles" (Chastity) with food and you can almost taste it.
The choice of narrator can profoundly effect even the best written book. I was a bit hesitant because Alison Larkin's voice is rather high-pitched and very female. However, she managed to pull off the male voices. As always, Cyn is my favorite because he is so charming.
I hope this is only the first of this series and that the other four books will also be available in audible form. As this is one of my favorite authors, I would certainly buy all of them. However, may I suggest a narrator with a lower voice range to capture the male voices?
