Summary

Lady Euphemia Marlington hasn't been free in 17 years - since she was captured by Corsairs and sold into a harem. Now the sultan is dead and Mia is back in London facing relentless newspapermen, an insatiably curious public, and her first Season. Worst of all is her ashamed father's ultimatum: marry a man of his choosing or live out her life in seclusion. No doubt her potential groom is a demented octogenarian. Fortunately, Mia is no longer a girl, but a clever woman with a secret - and a plan of her own....

Adam de Courtney's first two wives died under mysterious circumstances. Now there isn't a peer in England willing to let his daughter marry the dangerously handsome man the ton calls The Murderous Marquess. Nobody except Mia's father, the desperate Duke of Carlisle. Clearly Mia must resemble an aging matron, or worse. However, in need of an heir, Adam will use the arrangement to his advantage....

But when the two outcasts finally meet, assumptions will be replaced by surprises, deceit by desire-and a meeting of minds between two schemers may lead to a meeting of hearts - if the secrets of their pasts don't tear them apart....

Contains mature themes.

brilliant story

First time listening to one of Minerva Spencer's stories and loved every second of it. I just couldn't sp listening but unfortunately I had to, but couldn't wait to get back to it each time. But I finished it in a day. Will definitely be listening to all her other books on Audio.
The narrator was good but her voice sounded a bit monotonous and a bit like a robot, but it won't stop me from listening to the others.
So on to the next one straight away.

Cracking book

This has everything from strong Heroine a moody Hero. A different take on a regency just loved it and definitely a re-listen. On to next one! Great new author and well read Heather!

Just wow! What a debut!

Having just read #1 and #2 of "Rebels of the Ton series", I decided to go back again, to where it all started.

This is #1 of the Outcast series and it was my first introduction to "pirates".  I love this writer's style and this book is unusual because the hero is a widow of 37 known as the Murdering Marquess and the heroine is 32, having been kept in a Sultan's harem for 17 years.

The relationship which starts off as a marriage of convenience soon sizzles and and it is lovely to watch how the sultry Mia softens Adam, the man of ice.

There's also a great story which sets the scene for a great series and the subsequent spin-off series.

The narration is excellent!
