Publisher's Summary

Beautiful young Melanie Johnston had every reason to hate Roland Donovan. It was this man who caused the death of her beloved grandfather. It was he who possessed her in a night of mischief and madness, forever staining her honor. It was he who drove away the well-horn suitor she was to have wed. There was only one way for Melanie to take revenge - she would marry him and then use her every feminine wile to destroy him. But Melanie did not dream then of the strength of her own hungers - and the weakness of her flesh!

Great Narrator!

The narrator, Kayla Asbell, really enhanced my enjoyment of this book. I was very disappointed that she hasn't narrated anything else--I would love to hear more from her! I liked the story but didn't find it exceptional in any way. Overall I would purchase this again and would also recommend it to a friend.

Absolutely Adored It!

Any additional comments?

This story was spun with pure passion, romance, revenge, adventure and intrigue. It transported me to an entirely different era where honor reigned supreme. Both of the lead characters, Melanie and Roland possessed true bravery and conviction and the tension that flowed between them was tantalizingly palpable.

The narrator, Kayla Asbell was able to bring these characters vibrantly to life. The genteel world of the South opened up to me by her sensual Southern drawl and the multitude of characters were each so specific that there was not a single character that lacked vitality and charm. Her Melanie was both strong and sweet and despite the gender difference, she inhabited the brooding, yet tender, ruggedness of Roland with her versatile voice. I would love to hear more from this narrator.
