Summary

< i>They call him many names, but angelic isn't one of them.
Sebastian Ballister, the notorious Marquess of Dain, is big, bad, and dangerous to know. No respectable woman would have anything to do with the "Bane and Blight of the Ballisters", and he wants nothing to do with respectable women. He's determined to continue doing what he does best - sin and sin again - and all's going swimmingly…until the day a shop door opens and she walks in.
She's too intelligent to fall for the worst man in the world.
Jessica Trent is a determined young woman, and she's going to drag her imbecile brother off the road to ruin, no matter what it takes. If saving him - and with him her family and future - means taking on the devil himself, she won't back down. The trouble is, the devil in question is so shockingly irresistible that the person who needs saving most is Jessica herself.

Fantastic story, adorable/not quite the usual

The main man is actually adorable & more complex the the usual. Leading lady is a strong character too & the plot is good...loved the book but did find the reading a bit harsh on my ears. The 'stupid man' voice is used too often & for every man...yes, the reader took a bit of the pleasure from the story but better than some I've heard - the Italian for instance was great. Fantastic story though...one I'd like to have read properly.

Witty dialogue highlights battle between the sexes

Alex Kingston (River Song from the 11th Doctor Who series) would make a great Jessica Trent, the heroine of this story. The banter between Jessica and Sebastian, Lord Dain, (large, dark, wealthy) kept me laughing throughout the night as I couldn't stop listening. This book is well served by this audio performance. Kate Reading nails Jessica. The side characters are also interesting, e.g., Genevieve, Jessica's femme fatale grandmother, and Bertie, Jessica's brother. Lord Dain is paranoid about women only wanting him for his money and has a very jaundiced opinion of all females.

If you want an intelligent plot and laugh-out-loud dialogue, give this one a try. It's one of my top five romances.

Thoroughly enjoyed this one

This was a great story. I really enjoy stories where the characters are drawn together despite themselves, but there isn't a tremendous amount of things to interfere with the relationship. These two are very colorful characters and very likable. If I could change one thing, it would be more storyline with the boy. It would have been fun to see how they all managed in their relationship. Kate Reading is one of my favorite narrators, but this wasn't my favorite reading of hers.
