Synopsis

When New York Times bestselling author Stephanie Laurens created the world of the Cynsters, she introduced readers to aristocratic British society, where arranged marriages are the norm and love is a dangerous indulgence. For no gentleman is this more true than Charles Morwellan, but, as Lord Meredith, he must marry, so he offers for his neighbor Sarah Conningham. She's intelligent enough to run his social life, beautiful enough to grace his arm, and old enough to know the value of his offer. But as a lady of independent means Sarah is unwilling to surrender unless it is for unbounded love.But he convinces Sarah to give him two weeks to win her, after which, if he succeeds, they will marry immediately. And so begins an intense courtship. By day, Charles and Sarah are models of decorum. Each night they steal away and sensual embraces turn to searing kisses, which soon become much more.After the wedding, despite nights of insatiable passion, Charles maintains an aloof distance. Sarah battles to prove that true love is a force that can't be contained, but it's only when she's engulfed in a web of increasingly dangerous incidents that Charles discovers how much he's willing to surrender to protect...the taste of innocence.Performed by Elizabeth Sastre

I love Stephanie Laurens, however I just couldn't get into this book. I'm sad to say that I wasn't even able to finish it, it was THAT difficult. I will continue to read her books, however I would pass on this one, a lot of sensual scenes in the beginning and not so much plot substance to sink your teeth into.

AudiobooksNow review by Ann on 2008-03-02 14:10:19

I agree with the other reviewer, this was a difficult book to get into, but once into it, it was the same author that we know and love. My problem is that I am usually reading with the TV on for DH & DS, but this book I really needed quiet in order to processes the long, long sentences. Sometimes, I had to read them multiple times to get the meaning because it would get lost it's hard when the entire paragraph is one sentence. But, I thought the plot was believable and not overdone. The ending was a surprise though. I really did enjoy it - so please don't allow the wordiness to get in your way of completing a lovely story!

This was one of several very good books I have read this year. Never read Ms. Laurens books before but have become a fan of her writing and enjoy being drawn into her characters.
