Publisher's Summary

Lord Winter Vance, a notorious scoundrel and the marquess of Roth, must marry to save his inheritance, but a wife is the last thing he needs. Determined to carry on his rakish ways provoking his straitlaced duke of a father and scandalizing the ton, the minute Winter ties the knot, he dumps his starry-eyed debutante of a bride at his country estate and hies back to London.

But three years later, forgotten in slumbering Chelmsford while her husband gallivants in town, Lady Isobel Vance decides enough is enough, and she's ready to take matters into her own hands. When a case of mistaken identity leads to a devilish dance of seduction and an indelicate wager is made, this marchioness will show her marauding marquess just who he married.

Meh

The sex scenes were nice, the narrator not to bad, but the story was not remarkable. I had a hard time with characters. Isabelle was one contradiction after another. Naive and and yet not, viewing her husband both with fury, and rightly so, if for nothing more than his behavior towards her, and then she sees him and she just forgets 3 years of being ignored and is ready to forgive cause he is hot.
Oliver, and his life long resentment, forgotten in 1 conversation.
Clarissa who is the awesome but so unrealistic as a regency lady. Probably my favorite character.
The story itself was odd although that might have been resolved had I read book 1 in the series.
Overall I just didn’t like it and am sorry.

Silly and boring

This was a waste of money and time. Isabel was ridiculous and immaturity of a 10yr old. Winter was an insipidly dull "hero". I wouldn't recommend this at all.

An insult to feminism within a story with no substance.

This story was painful to finish. It started off well, but it got bad very quickly. My main complaints:

1. This is not historical romance. Aside from the stated year and a reference or two to the Regent Prince, and this story can pass for contemporary romance. Two many F bombs, particularly since they’re said by the main characters in instances where a regular person today would not say them.

2. Incongruous behaviors. The heroine is supposed to be a smart lady, but she spends the whole book making poor decisions risking her safety. She’s also a doormat. The fact that the hero doesn’t recognize her disguises tells me that he’s not very smart either in addition to the grudge he has against his father.

3. Vulgarity is not feminism. This book is an insult to it. I think Astrid in book 1 acted like an empowered woman, but the heroine here is only empowered to be vulgar (language) and to enjoy sex. Nothing wrong with that piece, but what about being independent and assertive?

4. Once the main characters resume their love-making that’s the only thing they do for the remaining of the book. No substance to the story, no real conflict, and predictable “villains.”

In summary, this was a wasted credit. The only reason I finished it it’s because of the performer. I was feeling hopeful about this writer after reading book one, but I won’t dare try another one.

The perfect follow up to The Beast of Beswick!

This was the perfect follow up to The Beast of Beswick! I have definitely found a new author for me. I was glad to see the continuation of the storyline for these two... the storyline its self was strong and detailed (which i like) I was drawn right into the story and felt as if i could envision the characters and atmosphere. The characters were all very in depth and each had a personality and were well done...even the villains. Im hoping for a continuation for one of the other characters in the book; i would love to see where his path leads. The epilogue was very enlightening (lol) never a dull moment. I highly recommend this audible.

Entertaining

I have to say…. This sat in my cue for many months before finally I was looking for a re-listen and didn’t recall this one….
The characters are very real, and although I admit to skimming through some of the sex scenes I truly enjoyed this book. As a matter of fact my next action will be to purchase the next one in the series.

The narration was excellent and the maleness of the narrator quickly faded to oblivion. He did fabulous!

Heat Factor: it’s full of chemistry, sex, and talk about sex. It doesn’t read like erotica though!

Loved this story! ❤️

I laughed, I cried and swooned - a beautifully written story featuring a very spicy and intelligent heroine and a sizzling yet stubborn hero who pulled at my heart strings. I couldn’t get enough of Lord Roth! 🥰

3 stars

Only 3 stars from me I’m afraid. I think the story could have had a bit more intrigue to it a bit less sex. Now I love a good story with sex in it but a lot of this was unnecessary. Also I found the narrator a bit distant in the sex scenes,if you know what I m mean,sort of? ....Um ....lacking in passion hence not making the scenes believable. I won’t be continuing with this series so I’m returning it

Oh dear ....

The book is heavily peppered with hot scenes of passion, innuendos and foul language of the "now time", definitely not of the regency era. Persistent irrationality of the hero is annoying. He seems to do everything to make himself suffer. Is he stupid enough to be his own foe?
We all enjoy fictional yarn with incomparable events; however, some logic must be present to tie things together. It's not the case for this "throw everything at it" storyline. An avalanche of sexy scenes disrupts the story rather than adding to it.
Narration is okay with an occasional mispronunciation. It pays to use the slightly higher speed to mask the irregularities.
