Publisher's Summary

At 25, Princess Adrianne lives a life most people would envy. Beautiful and elegant, she spends her days dabbling in charities and her nights floating from one glamorous gala to the next. But her pampered-rich-girl pose is a ruse, a carefully calculated effort to hide a dangerous truth.
For 10 years Adrianne has lived for revenge. As a child, she could only watch the cruelty hidden behind the facade of her parents' fairy-tale marriage. Now she has the perfect plan to make her famous father pay. She will take possession of the one thing he values above all others - The Sun and the Moon, a fabled necklace beyond price.
Yet just as she is poised to take her vengeance, she meets a man who seems to divine her every secret. Clever, charming, and enigmatic, Philip Chamberlain has his own private reasons for getting close to Princess Adrianne. And only when it's too late will she see the hidden danger...as she finds herself up against two formidable men - one with the knowledge to take her freedom, the other with the power to take her life.

Predictable... but soooo good!

Have you listened to any of Napoleon Ryan’s other performances? How does this one compare?

when I started listening I struggled a little with the delivery, but Napoleons voice just lures you in... and he is by far the best at ladies voices I have ever heard.


Any additional comments?

I have only recently found Nora Roberts books, but am so glad I did. I find them compelling listening... If you are looking for a satisfying twisty turny book, then look no further.

Ruined a great book with awful AWFUL narration

This is my favourite book, I've read it so many times... but the narration just ruins it for me. I found myself falling asleep with with the smoothness of his voice and the fact he didnt make me gripped with the story.

He gave Princess Adrianne an arabic accent after living in the US 17 years (how odd!) and made Philip sound pompous and condescending. its the first time I've not fallen in love with these two characters. I felt little sympathy for any of the characters due to the way it was narrated.

I normally listen to a book in less then 24 hours... This one was so awfully narrated it took me a week! Napoleon Ryan ruined my favourite book!
