Publisher's Summary

When shy and secluded author Sara Fielding ventures from her country cottage to research a novel, she inadvertently witnesses a crime in progress - and manages to save the life of the most dangerous man in London.

Derek Craven is a powerful and near-legendary gambling club owner who was born a bastard and raised in the streets. His reputation is unsavory, his scruples nonexistent. But Sara senses that beneath Derek's cynical exterior, he is capable of a love more passionate than her deepest fantasies.

Aware that he is the last man that an innocent young woman should ever want, Derek is determined to protect Sara from himself, no matter what it takes. But in a world where secrets lurk behind every shadow, he is the only man who can keep her safe. And as Derek and Sara surrender to an attraction too powerful to deny, a peril surfaces from his dark past to threaten their happiness...and perhaps even their lives.

Together they will discover if love is enough to make dreams come true.

Rosalyn Landor ruins good books

This has been one on my favorite LK books. So I was excited when there was finally a audiobook. The story is ruined by the narrator. I try not to listen to books narrated by Rosalyn Landon. She can’t do male voices at all. She always make them sound like an old stupid man. She especially bad with Scottish and English voices. I highly recommend the book but it’s I say avoid it listening to it but read in it.

Not my favorite but good

I love Lisa kleypas. She is one of my favorite authors. I chose this one because I’ve read all of her other books… This was my first time listening to Rosalynn Landor. This was okay but a bit predictable. I think my problem was the narrator. She has just a pronounced British accent I felt like everyone should be called names such as Fortuque Smythe or Giles. It was hard for me to get past that. I wish Mary Jane wells could narrate all her books. Overrall I still liked it but not my favorite.

Loved it!!!

Lisa Kleypas and narrator Rosalyn Landor are a perfect team! Stellar writing and narration that makes the story pop. Both books in this series are well worth the listen. I'd give each more than 5 stars.

I love the book!

This beautiful story was multilayered. The way it was written kept you wanting to listen until the end. It wasn’t one of those easy love stories focus only on the main characters falling in love. It was more than that. Great character development all around!
🚨SPOILER ALERT!!!🚨 The only thing I hate is that the antagonist didn’t get what she deserves. Send her away to Scotland in isolation?! Whatt?! 🙄 The dumb ass lunatic should have died! She was a despicable human being. I have never hated a character as such. 😂😂

Best Lisa Kleypas I’ve listened to yet!

I’m in love with her books. This one especially. I love how her books are part of the same universe. I wasn’t expecting that Cravens was the same place talked about in the wallflower series, which I adored mostly. Sara is her best heroine yet, and Derek her best hero. I love the two of them and their story. I’m wondering if all her romance historicals are part of the same universe? Can’t wait to find out!

I'm Not Good Enough For You

Derrick Cravens loves Sara so much he wants to protect her even from himself. He thinks that he is not good enough for her. He understands the significance of their class differences. She is a very nice girl from the country, she writes fictional novels that deals with prostitution; she is in love with him and she wants him. She likes how he made her feel when he kissed her one time. She is excited, she proposed to him but he said no. It took a while for me to fully understand why he kept telling her no, but I finally understood the depth of his reason. In addition to their class differences, it's his own sexual needs that he is afraid of. He believes he would ruin her angelic sensibilities Well, she proved his thinking wrong, of course! This is a good story which could have been edited down a bit but I highly recommend it. Rosalyn Landor's narration is excellent as usual.

Why Did I give in?

Sorry, but I can listen to Rosalyn Landor try and narrate voices of virile men any more. They always sound insipid and creepy. Rosalyn is amazing at pace and tone, but other than old farts and small boys should never do strong make lead voices!

I enjoy Lisa Klepas’s stories and characters but have to “skip” when I see the narrator listed.
