As the fires of war raged around him, Lord Alleyne Bedwyn was thrown from his horse and left for dead - only to awaken in the bedchamber of a ladies' brothel. Suddenly the dark, handsome diplomat has no memory of who he is or how he got there - yet of one thing he is certain: The angel who nurses him back to health is the woman he vows to make his own.
But like him, Rachel York is not who she seems. A lovely young woman caught up in a desperate circumstance, she must devise a scheme to regain her stolen fortune. The dashing soldier she rescued from near death could be her savior in disguise. There is just one condition: She must pose as his wife - a masquerade that will embroil them in a sinful scandal, where a man and a woman court impropriety with each daring step...with every taboo kiss that can turn passionate strangers into the truest of lovers.
Contains mature themes.

This was an excellent book. You can't get any better than MB and RL. It's a match made in heaven. A great author/story and a fantastic narrator.
The voices/performance are amazing!
Geraldine. I don't know if it was her dialogue or the way RL performed it. I could just tell RL loved doing the character and getting to read the dialogue.
Most of the characters have some funny lines. I found myself laughing out loud. This book was just fun.
I can't say enough about her as a narrator. The first few times I heard her, I thought she made the men sound stuffy and uptight. That was probably earlier books, as her men's voices are wonderful now. I still cant believe that she voices so many characters in this book. And then those same characters pretend to be other people, so RL has to change the voices slightly for their new "pretend roles". that really takes a lot of vocal skill.
A time to remember
This was one of the best books I have listen to. I really loved it and am looking forward to listening to it again. The only issue is that it makes most other regency romances seem less. This author writes so many different plots/situations it's just amazing and shows her talent.
When I finish , I just want to read another MB, but have read all that audible has and will have to wait for the next MB audio. I wish all of the books were available .
Not One of the Better Bedwyn Books
Sort of. I appreciated how it continued the Bedwyn saga and filled in some holes created in the previous book. However, after a decent beginning, the story and characters faltered for me. Both main characters became tedious at times, and some of their conflict seemed drawn out and uninteresting.
Yes, because I have read more compelling stories of other Bedwyns. Balogh is a writer that when she hits the mark, she hits it perfectly; she's just not always consistent.
Yes, and she always delivers a good performance.
Two slightly annoying and mostly likable people.
This was a time in which I felt Mary Balogh brought the right elements to a book, but she didn't bring them together well. The story went flat for me and struggled to keep me interested. The minor characters sometimes added nicely to the plot, and other times they were overdone and detracted unnecessarily from more important elements. This book was like a nice sweater knitted by your grandma: The right intention and presentation is there, but it doesn't look or feel right when you try it on. If you're not committed to the Bedwyn series, you could miss this one and be okay.
