Publisher's Summary

“One of today’s leading lights in romantic fiction.” (Seattle Times)

USA Today and New York Times best-selling author Lisa Kleypas is one of America’s most acclaimed and popular authors of historical romance fiction—and Stranger in My Arms is one of her most beloved novels! 

A classic tale of a noble lady whose life is upended when her despised husband—believed lost at sea—returns, a remarkably altered, more passionate and loving man…if he is, indeed, who he claims to be. 

A two-time RITA Award-winner—and a nine-time nominee—Lisa Kleypas is at her sensuous best with Stranger in My Arms.

very much disliked the leading lady

I enjoyed very little about this novel. The female lead is not my cup of tea. she is cowardly and selfish. unrealistic and short sighted. I struggled with her all the way until the last hour of the book when I simply couldn't take her lack of common sense for one more moment

Rosalyn Landor wonderful as always, story... ok

Rosalyn makes just about any story wonderful to listen to. I wouldn't say this was wonderful, but it wasn't terrible either. For a new book from this author, I was kind of surprised by the amount of male domineering in this. A man who is supposedly in love and has to have this wonderful woman, also making her wear things and do things she doesn't want to. I found it distasteful at times. I like the idea of the storyline and I appreciated the way it turned out (altho I did guess the probable ending very early on), but I really wasn't a fan of how the hero treated the heroine at times. I know this is regency London and men had all the power, but it's also fantasy fiction and this was a little on the abusive side for me. And I've been reading historical romance for the better part of 30 years. Worth a listen? Yeah, why not. It did keep me interested the whole way through, I just had to get past my distaste during certain interactions. I actually liked the heroine, sometimes I feel like the heroine comes off as weak and whiny, but I didn't feel that way. She had a clear idea of what she wanted to do with her life and didn't want it upturned by a man. In some ways she was stuck by the role a woman has to play, but she did stand her ground and I liked that.

One of my favorites!!!

One of my favorites from Lisa Kleypas- I have read through it a few times and now listened to it, the narrator is very good and easy to listen to. If I had to give a negative, my only issue with the book is the main character Larissa, especially towards the end, can be a little annoying/frustrating, however with that said her reasons for being so are valid and understandable.
Overall, I love this author's historicals and have listened to and reread many of them! I still find them enjoyable and steamy!
