Publisher's Summary

A childhood trauma has left Lady Blanche Harrington incapable of all emotion, least of all love. Now circumstance demands she marry, and Blanche dreads choosing from her horde of fawning suitors. For one very eligible gentleman has not stepped forward. A war hero and a recluse, Rex de Warenne has long admired Lady Blanche. Though fate and his own dark nature have robbed him of any hope for the kind of future such a lady deserves, Rex is determined to aid her - and keep his feelings to himself. But when their growing friendship leads to a night of shocking passion, Blanche's newfound memories threaten their fragile love, and Blanche's very life.

Very irritating, but great sex scenes

I agree this was not a strong literary novel. Both the language used and references made seemed very post 1820's at times, which made the main characters' insistence that servants be respectful of "their betters" all the more jarring, especially for one character who was supposed to be the "kindest person in the world." But my real problem was with the main female character who, while being described in glowing terms as kind, generous, and sensitive, was willing to put the man she loved through hell, treating him in ways that she knew, through his revelations to her, would hurt him the most and the deepest. I found myself yelling at at my CD player more than once, and applauding the one time he responded back to her with true anger. I really wanted to shake her. Having said that, the sex scenes were absolutely wonderful. It was just very hard to believe that she would continue to act the way she did after the extreme closeness they shared during them, her little secret aside.
The reader's style was also a little hard to take at first. Reading "Oh, pardon me!" and "she cried" as two separate sentences was a jolt each time she did it. But as time went on, she did much better.

great listening experience

I just loved this story and the reader did a fine job. Flawed characters are always so much more interesting to me, and the hero and heroine in this story both have significant personal obstacles to overcome. I'm listening to this one again - well done.
