Pretty good story - good characters. Sophie and King suddenly meet and go for a wild ride for days. Sparks fly, tempers flare and romance ensues. Sophie's sisters are notorious in London. They were made ladies when their coal miner father "won" the title of Earle. Their behavior is not acceptable to the ton and they are ridiculed. Sophie is the youngest and least noticed of the sisters, but they are all called "soiled" and "dangerous". Sophie, who hates the aristocracy, snaps when her married eldest sister is embarrassed by her Duke husband at a summer party. Sophie takes drastic action against him resulting in her family being shunned by society. As she flees the party, Sophie runs into "King" who is in line for the title of Duke. It is a very bad meeting and gets worse - but fun to listen to. The performance is very good and I recommend this book for a fun listen. It is not great literature, but it is pleasant and entertaining. Kept my interest from the beginning to the end.

I've read and enjoyed some of Sarah MacLean's books previously so when this book came up on sale I had to listen. Although this one is not my favorite it still was entertaining and fun. I enjoyed the fast pace of this book, the adventure, and the bantering of the characters. I wasn't a fan of some unnecessary cruel dialog from the "hero" which only made him seem more like an immature bully. But, thankfully he worked out some issues and grew up a bit. 😊
Note: This book does have strong language and explicit sex.
Loved the narration of Justine Eyre. I've listened to other books she's narrated and I've never been disappointed. Everyone has different tastes when it comes to narrators so please listen to the audio sample before you purchase any book.
Overall, I liked this book and will be getting the next in this series. 😉

What an amazing book! I love how the story moved from one location to another and the creativity of the heroine in her garments during that time. She was brave and intelligent and interesting and a little spoiled and naive all at the same time. I can say I was NEVER bored at any single moment of this book and the push and pull between the H/H kept me glued to the book. A sigh worthy love match!

Very good story. better than I expected. narrator did excellent job with all voices except for King's. I had hoped he would sound more masculine and less like the snobbish aristocrats. excellent overall.

A Rogue listen
This isn't your normal English romance. This story is filled with a long journey with different twist and turns along the way. It dragged on sometimes, but other than that a OK listen. I am not sure if I want to read the next book in the series .
