Publisher's Summary

From number-one New York Times best-selling author and USA TODAY best-selling author J. R. Ward, writing as Jessica Bird. The classic tale of a man who always got what he wanted - until he met the one woman he couldn't afford to lose.
Nate Walker has never shied away from the hard road. Even when it meant leaving behind his family's wealth - and the fiancée who only wanted a rich man. Nothing was going to stop him from opening his own five-star restaurant.
And he was on his way, until his car broke down on a dark road in the Adirondacks, leading him right to White Caps Inn - and Frankie Moorehouse.
Suddenly, Nate has a job he doesn't really need and an affair that has to end when summer does. Except Frankie has a way about her. She gets under his skin. She even makes him want to do what he never thought he could: stay forever.

A few caveats before you begin...

In order to give this book a chance, you have to forget the Black Dagger Brotherhood series. Next, you have to forget that Jessica Bird and J.R. Ward are one in the same. Then, and only then, does this book stand a chance. Almost impossible for those who love the BDB series, myself included.

"The Rebel" was okay. Good narration by Gayle Hendrix, but the story was uncomfortably slow. If I hadn't used one of my credits, I may not have finished it. On the plus side, I was looking for a light romance, and that's exactly what I got. So, I am very glad that I stuck it out.

Give this one a chance, if you are up for the challenge!

Yes. I really enjoyed listening to The Rebel, because it delivered a terrific story rich with emotion.


What was one of the most memorable moments of The Rebel?

I can't choose just one memorable moment because there were so many. J.R. Ward weaves the lives of her characters together to create a very intriguing story. Each person has his/her own unique obstacles to overcome. I enjoy hearing it all unfold.


What about Gayle Hendrix’s performance did you like?

Gayle Hendrix's performance is perfect for the mix of characters. The cadence of her voice maintains the pace of the story to effect.


If you were to make a film of this book, what would be the tag line be?
