Publisher's Summary

A rescued rogue...

Scandal has rocked the city of London. Colin Eversea, a handsome, reckless unapologetic rogue is sentenced to hang for murder and, inconveniently for him, the only witness to the crime disappears. Then again, throughout history, the Everseas have always managed to cheat fate in style: Colin is snatched from the gallows by a beautiful, clever mercenary.

A captivating captor...

Cool-headed, daring Madeleine Greenway is immune to Colin's vaunted charm. Her mission is not to rescue Colin but to kidnap him, and to be paid handsomely for it. But when it becomes clear that whoever wants Colin alive wants Madeline dead, the two become uneasy allies in a deadly race for truth. Together, they'll face great danger - and a passion neither can resist.

Contains mature themes.

Pennyroyal Green comes to Audible! Don't miss it!

This is the first book in Julie Anne Long's Pennyroyal Green Series. It begins the arc of a storyline about the Eversea and Redmond families' curse that carries through all 11.5 books in the series, while providing a searing and unique story of romance and adventure with each book. But read them in order because no one writes with quite as much heart as Julie Anne Long, and you don't want to miss anything as she reveals more and more about the small town of Pennyroyal Green, in Sussex, England. A town that you simply want to move into just to sit and watch the denizens drink and gossip at the Pig and Thistle and witness more and more of the machinations of the Everseas and the Redmonds. I've read this series in print, TWICE, and I'm so excited that it has come to Audible!

A tough listen... hard to finish.

Struggled to finish. The narrator's portrayal of male characters is quite bad. She also does a poor job at accents and was also weak at interpreting and portraying changes of mood and pace in conversation. This would have been an easier listen with a more skilled narrator.

Captivating

What a story. There’s depth and good writing and sensuality. The narrators male voices take some getting used to. The female character was strong independent flawed and intelligent. I so enjoyed this 5 star Audible listen that I’m trying the next in The series.

No

Probably the most unromantic romance ever. More adventure than romance and a pretty boring adventure to boot. I never cared about either H/H. The *sex scene* in the hayloft was completely without passion, romance or love. Just sex....and again boring sex at that. I am a big fan of Justine Eyre but even her great narration couldn't save this jumble. Can't recommend...will most likely return.

Could have been so much better!

I really enjoyed the fun mystery and adventure of the story. I also very much enjoyed the two protagonists, Mad and Collin. But my issue was that the final phases of the love story felt rushed, which was only exacerbated by the fact that Justine Eyre, who usually have impeccably pacing, sped through the writing like lightning. There were never any pauses to absorb, and often even led to confusion. So far the rest of the series that’s available is a bit better in its narration and written.
