Publisher's Summary

When the dangerous men who killed her husband in a political assassination threaten Ara, Duchess of Burghly, the Crown assigns her a bodyguard. But the man charged with protecting her is no stranger. 

He’s Clayton Ludlow, the bastard son of a duke and the first man she ever loved. Eight years after he took her innocence and ruthlessly abandoned her, he’s back in her drawing room and her life. 

This time, she’s older, wiser, and stronger. She will resist him at any cost and make him pay for the past. 

She’s the only woman Clay ever loved and the one he hates above all others. When Ara brutally betrayed and deceived him, leaving him with a scarred face and a bitter heart, he devoted himself to earning his reputation as one of the Crown’s most feared agents. 

He wants nothing more than to finish his assignment so that he can remove all traces of her from his life forever. But walking away from her for good won’t be as easy as he thinks. 

As secrets are revealed and danger threatens Ara, Clay discovers that the truth is far more complicated than deceit. Once she’s back in his arms where she belongs, he’ll wage the biggest fight of all to keep her there.

Enjoyed this book...will listen to the series.

An interesting story line (I think it could have been a bit 'meatier' in regards to the intrigue and murder), lovely narration and a happy ending. Great for a long drive in the car - kept my attention.

Needs a ruthless editor. Lots of redundancy.

There are 3-7 sentences of inner musings for every sentence of dialogue. At this ratio, I often forgot what the characters were discussing. Too bad, since all that extra stuff diminishes what is at its heart a great book. Not even the considerable talents of Rosalyn Landor can make up for the overgrown prose of this one. Could comfortably be boiled down to an excellent 4 hour listen.

Very repetitive

Could have been a good story but way too much repetitive jabber. Not even the great Rosalyn Landor can save it. Sad since there was a good sub story with the Irish terrorists plot, but it was underused. The Irish plot could have been a way to flesh out the story so it would not have needed to keep repeating how each H/H hated the other and had been betrayed. I got that in the first few chapters. Also WAY TOO MUCH inner thoughts. The characters were constantly being told they were distracted. Not horrible but glad it was part of the romance package so I didn't need a refund.

Love Rosalyn Landor!

She is the only reason I was able to stick with this book. I saw another review that said it needed a good Editor and another that said it was too repetitive. They were both right. It reads like the author had a contract that requires that the book be a specific number of words or pages and she was a chapter short. The same inner dialogues by the same two characters, over and over, explaining why they held on to being angry with each other for literally half of the book. This could honestly have been condensed into a novella easily with proper editing. Otherwise it was enjoyable.

A good listen

My first Scarlett Scott book. Pretty good, I'll probably listen to more by her. Rosalyn Landor is one of my favorites and she did a nice job.

Too much repetition

Could not finish due to the constant repetition of the same conflict between the characters. Love Rosalyn Landor though!

Tedious

This is an eye roller. The characters drone on and in perpetuity in a love hate relationship. Fast forwarded a lot. Glad when it was over.

Good Start

I couldn't get into this book at first and maybe it was me at the start. However, the more I listened, the more I enjoyed it. This love story had some road blocks and in the process, lives were affected. Along the way you learn what happens and it is a nice and steamy story. Rosalyn Landor is very good.

Captivating

Although I absolutely loved the story, I was already hooked when I saw who the narrator was.

Oh my, how I enjoyed this book!

This is my first audio book by Scarlett Scott, but I can assure you it will definitely not be the last. An awesome love story that held me spellbound to the end with all the intrigue and angst. I fell in love with the characters from the start. Well written book and beautifully narrated by Rosalyn Landor. Highly recommended

Pretty Good!

I read the reviews about the redundancy and while there was some, I believe the preformance of the narrator outweighed it for me. Great storyline, would have been nice if it reached the punchline a bit sooner. Still recommending as a listen.

I would like to return this book!

I mostly listen to historical romances and I chose this one mainly because Rosalind Landor was reading it! I haven’t listened to anything written by Scarlett Scott before but I enjoy anything Rosalind reads. Horrror!! The whole book was so repetitive and the sexual passages were so intimately descriptive that I found them quite sickening- and different variations of this theme occurred in most every chapter and I was feeling so sorry for Rosalind having to read it ! You. can see from my library that I choose books with sexual in them but I find this extreme AND repetitive

dragged on

Story was a bit dragging until chapter 17. As for the narrator, I didn't like Clays voice at all. I will not continue the series.

Every thing you could want in a romance!

I picked this book as although I have not come across Scarlett Scott’s books before, Rosalyn Landor is an amazing narrator and ALWAYS manages to make the Men sound so masculine and brings every character to life! But I will DEFINITELY be reading more Scarlett Scott books!! There was Drama, mystery, romance, murder and intrigue in bucket loads!! And blimey!! The sex scenes were the steamiest I have heard!! If you want full on Masculinity at its best with every chapter jammed packed with excitement... then this is one of the best I have heard! Bravo Ms Scott - you hit the nail on the head on every level!!! x

Narrator supreme!!!

As usual Rosalyn Landon brought the storyline alive. Worth listening to the end although storyline dragged out a little too much and I found myself fast forwarding several times. I can’t get enough of the narrator so now search under her as opposed to author.
