Ever the bold adventuress, Lucy Waltham has decided to go hunting for a husband. But first she needs some target practice. So she turns to her brother's best friend, Jeremy Trescott, the Earl of Kendall, to hone her seductive wiles on him before setting her sights on another man. But her practice kisses spark a smoldering passion that could send all her plans up in smoke.
Jeremy has an influential title, a vast fortune, and a painful past full of long-buried secrets. He keeps a safe distance from his own emotions, but to distract Lucy from her reckless scheming, he must give his passions free rein. Their sensual battle of wills is as maddening as it is delicious, but the longer he succeeds in managing the headstrong temptress, the closer Jeremy comes to losing control. When scandal breaks, can he bring himself to abandon Lucy to her ruin? Or will he risk his heart and claim her for his own?

Dreadful, slow, awful reading ruins great tale
Is there anything you would change about this book?
The reader. Poor Tessa Dare wrote a lively, witty and very entertaining romance, which the reader has utterly ruined in her prissy, ponderous, overly slow, oddly articulated reading. It's as if she were reading it for the simple minded or English-as-second-language students.
Who was your favorite character and why?
Both hero and heroine. He's a rake and friend of the heroine's older brother, she's in love with another of her brother's friends and trying to practice her 'wiles' on the rake.
How did the narrator detract from the book?
See above. If this isn't her first job, let it please be her last.
Any additional comments?
Read the book, avoid this audiobook, it will detract from your enjoyment of the author's ready and very sly wit. Such a delightful story deserves an equally deft, and droll performance. This is a do-over for me. I regret I cannot get a refund, I'm that annoyed.

Ruined by poor narration
Setting: Regency era England
I don't know if I can adequately review this audio book, since the narration and production were so bad. I guess the characters were interesting, and there were actually a couple of humorous moments. There was character growth as well. However, there were several places in the narrative where the story could have been wrapped up, but it just kept going on with almost willful misunderstanding and angst. I guess I'll have to read it in print. If only they had gotten someone like Roslyn Landor to do the reading! It was so distracting it was difficult to truly follow the story line - maybe this book is better than my experience, since I listened to and enjoyed the other Tessa Dare novel available at this site at this time.
I likely will NOT give this a repeat listen.
