Publisher's Summary

Dangerous. Sensual. Handsome as sin. Meet Hayden Rothwell, the shamelessly erotic hero of The Rules of Seduction and author Madeline Hunter's most irresistible alpha male yet: a man of extraordinary passion and power, a man who can bring out the seductress in any woman....

He enters her home without warning or invitation - a stranger of shadowy motives and commanding sensuality. Within hours, Alexia Welbourne is penniless, without any hope of marriage. Until Hayden Rothwell takes her to bed. When one impulsive act of passion forces Alexia to marry the very man who has ruined her, Hayden's seduction of Alexia is nearly complete. What Alexia doesn't know is that her irresistible new husband is driven by a secret purpose - and a debt of honor he will risk everything to repay.

Alexia is the wild card. Reluctant to give up their nightly pleasures, Hayden must find a way to keep Alexia by his side...only to be utterly, thoroughly seduced by a woman who is now playing by her own rules.

Contains mature themes.

Different Love Story

I enjoyed this book. It was a beautiful story of love. I hated that the two brothers were allowed to sail away with no repercussions leaving their sisters to fend for themselves. I hated that Hayden had to suffer the blame for the brother's actions. Hayden was a good man placed in an impossible situation. Hoping there is a follow up to this book that brings the brother's to justice and the sister's to find happiness.

Great story. Awful performance.

Loved the story, but could not stand the narrator's "breathy" performance; it cheapened the novel.

Pretty good.

Narrator made this not as enjoyable as it could've been. Her cadence throughout was distracting and became quite annoying. I listened to this at 1.20x and didn't help.

The story was good with good balance of plot and heat. I am looking forward to the next in this series.

Good book, Bad narration

The flow of the narrator was very odd. Almost like she was chanting but with a "breathy" voice.

Loved it!

I don't care what anyone says Susan Fierce is an excellent narrator, her voice has a husky silk register that worked well especially in this story. It is thoughtful, sensual and dramatic in a way that lends mystery and promise. One of Madeline Hunter's finest love story..

Awfully Narrated

I think the story wasn’t too bad but the narration was so awful, I truly can’t tell.
