Publisher's Summary

Life for Victoria Lacey should be perfect. And it is - perfectly boring.
Agree to marry a lord who has yet to inspire a single, solitary tingle? Why, of course. Smile as though this is not the thousandth time he's mentioned hounds and hunting? It's all in a day's work for the oh-so-proper sister of the Duke of Blackmore. Surely no one would suspect her secret longing for heart-racing, head-spinning passion.
Except, perhaps, a dark stranger...on a terrace...at a ball where she should definitely not be kissing a man she has only just met.
Hatred, not love, drives Lucien Wyatt, Viscount Atherbourne, to tempt the "Flower of Blackmore" into sin. Her brother has done unthinkable damage to Lucien's family, and he intends to exact revenge in the only way left to him: Ruining his enemy's sister, then stealing her from Blackmore by making her his own.
As Lucien carries out his ruthless plan, tutoring his new bride in the finer points of pleasure, her surrender leaves him breathless...and soon a new obsession awakens - a scandalous fascination with his irresistible wife.
Contains mature themes.

Lots of characters to keep track of

I had to listen to the first chapter several times and make a list of all the characters to keep them straight. After that I thought the story was interesting - actually better than most historical romances. What I liked most was the several interesting characters - men and women - whose stories I'd like to see continued in following books in the series. And that doesn't happen often. I'd definitely read any books in the series that continue their stories.

A wonderful HR listen

I wasn't expecting this book to be so good. It was Awesome, I couldn't put it down when I started. That's saying a lot, I can listen up to 5 books at a time. Well worth the credit, I'm buying the next one
