His powers could save her from ruin, or guide her swiftly to it. Lennox Taskill is a dissolute rogue, a powerful witch who some say even trades his enchantments for profit when it pleases him. His only loyalty is to his coven, his disdain for humanity sealed by the searing memory of his mother burning at the stake. So when the wife of a wealthy landlord comes seeking his help, the beguiling Chloris Keavey unwittingly presents Lennox with his greatest opportunity for distraction and retribution.
By failing to produce an heir, Chloris faces a terrible threat: being turned out by her heartless husband. Now, she vows to get with child, even if it means surrendering her body and soul to Lennox's seductive magic. But with a witch hunt brewing, Lennox and Chloris are soon risking everything for their forbidden nights of ecstasy and to protect the secret that could cost them their lives.

A PARANORMAL HISTORICAL LOVE STORY
Slow start but WORTH IT for the ending 3 1/2 stars
I recommend this book to anyone who has already read Saskia's The Harlot (1st in the trilogy) or those who have already rad the 3rd in the trilogy The Jezebel.
As a standalone book it would not have been nearly as good...it is truly more enjoyable knowing the background of the whole trilogy. It is not as good as The Harlot and although I haven't listened to The Jezebel (up next on my playlist) I have a feeling I will like it better than The Libertine as well.
She does a great "real ladylike" voice. Her voice for Cloris was very good. But all in all I like her as a narrator.....she isn't the best I have ever heard.....but I find that she immediately immerses me in the story and I don't spend time worrying about how some character's voices are done (like with some lesser narrators).
Sadly NO! The beginning was very slow. That being said I didn't want to stop listening to the last 1/3 of the book. Halfway I began to get into to it much more and by the last 1/3 I couldn't stop listening.
I am glad I listened to this book but..........I had trouble immediately getting on board with these characters. I didn't root for their love and I was getting a bit bored. Part of the problem was that the main character's relationship to her husband was not laid out clearly. I think I had a moral conflict until halfway through the book when everything was very clear. I don't want to give anything away, but if the author had laid these things out more clearly...or at least brought ALL the issues Cloris was faced with with her husband much earlier I might have been quicker to get into enjoying the book.
