Publisher's Summary

To save her family, Mairey Faelyn must give herself in marriage to her sworn enemy, the powerful and ruthless Lord Rushford. Already a wealthy man, Rushford seeks a treasure that only Mairey can reveal, for she knows the family secret that leads to a hidden fortune. Now Mairey must decide whether to protect her vow of silence or enlighten her husband, who is beginning to feel more like her true love than her adversary.

The Wedding Night is a passionate tale of twisting emotions and conflicting loyalties. Narrator Jenny Sterlin reads flawlessly, capturing Mairey's fiery essence and each thought that passes through her troubled mind.

Is it hot in here?

The publisher summary on this title jumps the gun -- to clarify, most of this story is about a treasure hunt, and then, about two-thirds the way through the book we get to the marriage part.

Our heroine is an independent bluestocking balancing care of her orphaned little sisters with her scholarly endevours. Our hero is rough and burly on the outside/soft and cuddly on the inside. I know it is a little formulaic, but I am a pushover for the slightly tortured hero. The two join up to search for a celtic silver artifact, both with their own goals in mind with what to do with the treasure once it is found -- one to protect it, the other to exploit it. The search brings our hero and heroine closer together, they learn to respect each other, and are definitely attracted to one another (there are a number of humorous, and romantic, sexually-charged scenes). Despite their differences, and initial antipathy, they fall in love. This book offers some red-hot scenarios, but don't worry, for those of you looking for more than just the 'horizontal tango', there is also a rather nice little romance here as well.

I have heard this narrator before, and have grown to enjoy her, but I know that other listeners have had problems with her voice. Listen to the snippet to judge for yourself. I think she does a fine delivery of this title, with excellent characterization.

historical romance set in 19th century England

After a rather slow start the story gains some momentum and is rather entertaining. Love and passion in a historical setting, likeable characters with some funny parts.

First Listen.

I loved, loved this book. I'm new to listening to audiobooks...I had to get use to the speed of reading, but the story was wonder. The Jack and Mary was a great team and Mary's sisters..I could see them hanging all over the dashing Jack. I enjoyed this book so much. I can't wait to grab another listen.

Took Me Away

This love story totally took me away! I couldn't get enough of listening to it. It made me laugh and cry and always wanting more. I hated to see it end. The narrarator was perfect for this story and brought out every emotion.
