Dark, gothic; annoying narrator
Any additional comments?
I did not enjoy listening to this book. First of all, I didn't care for the narrator, Antony Ferguson, whose reading style was so slow, and so full of long pauses, that I listened to most of the book with the speed at 1.25. Second, the first 50%+ of the book seemed to be nothing but long, detailed sex scenes between Jonas and Sidonie. I like steamy, but Sidonie's journey from innocent virgin to hot mamma went by in a flash, and I can easily do without so much description of their every move. I actually liked the last third or so of the book, when things begin to happen, but by then those things felt a little rushed.
Jonas was a fascinating character, scarred both inside and out, and the story of his redemption was very interesting. Unfortunately, that story didn't save the book for me, especially since Sidonie did some pretty dumb stuff along the way. All in all, I understood the lust but never quite bought into the love.

A really sweet beauty and the beast story
It drew me in right from the start - Jonas is a scarred, tormented and tortured rogue who gets more than he had bargained for when Sidonie agrees to give up her virginity and spend 7 nights with him. He soon realises 7 nights are not enough but he needs to seduce her in order to win her heart forever.
Good story with secrets that shouldn't be kept and it has suspense with another sub plot too, two leading characters that you can't help but empathise with and it has you routing for them both and their doomed relationship.
Worth a credit? Yes, and I haven't listened to any of Anna Campbell's other books but I would definitely give them a try too.
