Publisher's Summary

For as long as she can remember, Lady Adriana Sutton has adored Colton Wyndham, to whom she has been betrothed since childhood. But Colton was too proud to submit to a future not of his own choosing, and he fled his ancestral home for a life of adventure as a British army officer. Years later, the girl Colton spurned has blossomed into an uncommon beauty desired by every eligible bachelor in the land, except the man she desires, the decorated hero who has finally returned home. As arrogant and seductive as ever, Colton agrees to court Lady Adriana for ninety days to prove that love cannot be forced, after which time he will be free. But this stunning, spirited woman is far different from the young chit he left behind. And a heroic heart, once tightly closed, is now susceptible to Adriana's charm and sensuality, even as dark secrets and a rival's treachery threaten to steal her from Colton's arms forever.

Never buy an abridged book!

I read this book in paper years ago and thought it might be fun to hear it read. The abridged version left out so much that it made the story silly and characters became one dimensional and boring.

IF YOU'VE READ THE BOOK, DON'T BUY AUDIO VERSION!

Bottom line is this is my ALL TIME favorite HR book period. I read it yearly in print, but this abridged version is terrible. They have cut all the great parts and back story out to the point your like hey, how did we get here and why are we here. You lose time and place during the story. Buy the book it is AWESOME!

Fun historical romance

There are all the ups and downs of a good historical romance. I felt that the leading lady was a bit two dimensional, could have been her 'innocence'... but don't let this put you off. It was still worth the journey with lots of secrets in the closet, murder, mystery, fights, intrigue. If you are looking for a good dose of light-hearted entertainment - you have found a winner.
