England, 1813. Damon de Wolfe, the sixth marquess of Morninghall (a Romantic Times K.I.S.S. Hero of the Year nominee), is dark, diabolical, and very, very dangerous. Tortured by his past and driven by his desire for revenge, the former naval hero has fallen from grace after infuriating his superiors. Now seething with anger in his lowly role of prison ship commander, he has locked away his brutal childhood memories and allows no one into his world. When beautiful and independent social reformer Lady Gwyneth Evans Simms dares to clash with him over mistreated prisoners, she unwittingly throws herself into the most perilous fight of her life. And Damon embarks on a journey of healing and discovery as the lovely widow seeks to exorcise the demons haunting his very soul through lessons in love.
A gripping and emotional Beauty and the Beast tale by best-selling, multi-award-winning author Danelle Harmon (author of the De Montforte Brothers series).

Great Story, Great Narration, Wonderful Pace!
The narrator did a fantastic job. Farrell took Harmon's book and brought it to life.
I loved all of the characters, but my favorite was Damon's character was my favorite. He was a man demonized by tormented memories from his childhood, which I guess would be similar to what we would today refer to PTSD. Damon's response to this was to continually refer to a medical dictionary to deal with each of his 'symptoms' (maybe some sort of panic disorder). Until he meets the lovely and very determined Lady Simms, his life seems on an empty course. His determination to beat Mrs. Simms leads him on a course to instead, follow her lead of charity. Unfortunately for both of them, Damon had made enemies along the way - chief among them the father of the son he had killed. Lady Simms and Damon both end up in a fight for their lives.
The scene where they are finally on his bed and succumb to passion and the men rush in to attack. That was really well done. It was passionate, but the attack was frightening, and well narrated.
I laughed a lot in the book - and could feel other sad emotions. But it Danelle Harmon writes so well, that she elicits all emotions.
