Publisher's Summary

A celebrated beauty, Madeleine DuMais' cleverness is her greatest asset - one she puts to good use as a spy for the British. Assigned to help break up a smuggling ring in the south of England, she arrives at the quaint resort town of Winter Garden and meets her partner in subterfuge: Thomas Blackwood.
Unlike any man she has ever met, Blackwood's quiet confidence and mysterious intensity send shivers of pleasure coursing through her. And, despite the danger, as duty gives way to desire, Madeleine aches for Thomas's gentle touch on her body... on her heart... on her soul.
For surrender holds its own sweet reward....

A SENSUAL, SEXUAL SOJOURN IN WINTER GARDEN

What a lovely surprise this book was - totally different from the usual 'handsome Rake meets beautiful virgin' type books. Yes, it was a little bit far fetched in places, but it was such a nice story you just have to overlook the flaws.

Thomas had been left disabled in the Opium wars but, despite this, he became an undercover English spy who asked for the help of beautiful Madeleine, his counterpart French spy, to help in the latest mission to capture an Opium Dealer in Winter Garden but this wasn't his true mission - it was to win Madeleine's heart forever.

They were instantly attracted to each other and began a journey of discovery, passion, sexual interludes, intense, but very touching, human desire and eventually love. This book was filled with great characters, a bit of a weak plot, however its such a heart warming love story that it can't help but move you.

Worth a credit? I loved it - so it's a definite yes.

It's hot in Winter Garden

Would you consider the audio edition of Winter Garden to be better than the print version?

The story is the same, but books, make boring everyday chores enjoyable.
Both versions of this story were Great


What was one of the most memorable moments of Winter Garden?

When Thomas reveals to Madeleine who he really is, and the reason for his lie.


Have you listened to any of Heather Wilds’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

She has a great voice, and superb accents


Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

I was so weepy mid way through the book, realizing ( or so I thought) that both main characters were going to suffer for their choices.


Any additional comments?

Loved this book, apparently, it is a series with 2 additional stories... I'd love to read the other 2.
