Publisher's Summary

Scottish beauty Roslynn Chadwick needs the safety of marriage to protect her from an unscrupulous cousin and the fortune-hunting scoundrels who covet her wealth. And Anthony Malory is precisely the sort of handsome rogue she's been warned against. A cunning, ruthless, yet irresistible rake, Anthony's sensual blue eyes speak of pleasures beyond her imagining - and Roslynn, believing his passionate promises will surely lead to disaster, dearly wishes she dared to surrender to such a man. But denying her heart may cost the exquisite Highlands lady an unparalleled love hotter than flame and more precious than the rarest jewel.
The saga continues: listen to more romatic tales of the Malory family.

Bad narrator

The story has some problems but the main issue is Laural Merlington. She absolutely can NOT do these accents. And please, please STOP voicing the laugh! It is VERY irritating, it not only pulls me out of the story, I cringe every time I hear "he/she chuckled/laughed" cause I know that horrible "heh, heh, heh" laugh sound will follow. I have managed to listen to Merlington before. She does the laugh on Kelley Armstrong's Otherworld series also. The *laugh* combined with the HORRIBLE accents make this a very unpleasant listen.

Great story

The Malory Novels are wonderful. I only wish that Audible would get all of the Malory Novels.

Narration Not the Best

I've listen to Ms Merlington read several of Johanna Lindsey's later books and really enjoyed them. Not so this one. Her accents seemed off and the fake laughter was terrible.

I'm planning on listening to the whole Maloy series, though as I know she gets better.

At first look, I was uncertain if I would enjoy this series, so I started with this, the second book 'Tender Rebel' because the synopsis appealed to me the most. After finishing the listen I immediately headed to audible to download another book from the series, 'Gentle Rogue'.

I have to say that at one point Roslyn began to annoy me, simply because she believed the worse in Anthony with very little evidence to feed her distrust. Personally, I found this frustrating and a little unbelievable that she could be that dim-witted. It distracted me for a while but I've listened to far worse plots with far more annoying female protagonists so I got over it in the end and continued enjoying the story.
Having said that, this was any easy listen and held my interest with everything you look for in a fun, delightful romance story. With just over ten hours of listening, I felt it was worth the price.
I must say, it was very clever of the author to introduce the next novel's plot during this story. I think I may now be hooked on the Malory series.
