Publisher's Summary

Dangerously seductive and sinfully beautiful, Susanna Burney is society’s most sought after matchbreaker. Paid by wealthy parents to part unsuitable couples, she’s never yet failed to accomplish her mission of diverting a groom-to-be - until her final assignment brings her face-to-face with the man who’d once taught her an intimate lesson in heartache….
James Devlin has everything he’s always wanted: a title, a rich fiancée, and a place in society. But the woman who’s just met his eyes across a crowded ballroom threatens it all. Not because she’d once claimed his heart or that every sinuous swirl of her ball gown takes his breath away... but because the secrets she carries could cost him everything. To put the past to rest once and for all, Dev just might have to play Susanna at her own wicked game.


What the Critics Say

“Katherine Kellgren delivers a calm, cool narration as Susanna and Devlin dance around each other and their feelings. Kellgren’s voice rises and falls as the two are pulled together by desire and then push each other away.” (AudioFile)

Great listen for Historical Romance Fans!

Nicola Cornick has done a great job with character develop in this book and has a couple of different sub-stories in addition to the main story. I really liked this as it brings more depth to the book. This books is very sensual so if you like a good sexy listen in addition to a good story, then this is the book for you.

The narrator, Katherine Kellgren is excellent. There are a couple of audio mixing errors in this books, but they are very minor and do not distract from the story.

Katherine Kellgren's performance was supurb, improving the listening pleasure, but the book itself was too scenes too long. The story was unique in that instead of featuring a "match-maker" it featured a "match-breaker", but I found it difficult to finish--it was depressing despite the happy ending.

I would not recommend it.
