Gideon Waverley, heir to the Duke of Townsend, had everything a young man could need, a promising future, a title, charming good looks, great friends, and a family who adored him. Until his body turned him into a monster. He had no choice but to separate himself from the world, to hide his monstrous self from society, to cast away his future. But the brilliant and beautiful Eve Cornwell refused to believe he could not be saved, even as she refused to guard her heart. And all the while she knew she couldn't keep him once she'd loved him back into the light.

"A good story nevertheless I struggled to finish it"
The author left nothing to imagination and added more drama then necessary. Rosalyn struggled to make the obvious interesting. Save your money.
"Okay story, a bit melancholy maybe??"
So this was an okay story, but seemed a bit melancholy sometimes. I was glad the ending had a surprise twist to it, but I did figure it out way ahead of time.
Story line and plot... Where to start.. Well, it was okay, I finished it. But it was difficult. I like my hero's strong with a tad of arrogance. Gideon was strong and sexy and accepting of his condition but it just seemed sad at times. I liked Eve and I liked that she didn't give up. I was glad when they figured out what was wrong.
There was a lot of dialogue throughout the entire book so that was a plus, it wasn't full of repetitiveness as some Laura Landon books have been.
As for the narration, Rosalyn Landor did fine. If you listened to her before, it's still the same. Her reading voice sounds a lot like the men's voices. But at least she does do a man's voice.
"A tad ponderous"
I got through it. I have never figured out how 7/8 of the book is spent on the intro and 1/8th on dealing with the bad guy. The bad guy is is the main character. I want to know what's going on inside the mind of the bad guy and what the bad guy feels when dreaming up his nefarious and other dirty deeds. Why make me my go through all this drama just to have the story end like a Korean soap opera?
"One of the best stories I have read in the past few months"
Since I read so many historical romance books after a few years I realize I am getting bored with the gratuity sex (which I normally like when it's done well) and silly dialogue or storylines. I can truly say that this book was refreshing in that I was not only on the edge of my seat but also the love story and how it was built was Beautiful. ❤️. The love was built wonderfully. Yes there were a few things hero said that is how women wish men would talk like and express their feeling like but it was a bit unrealistic for my taste. Those parts were however infrequent occurrences. Adored this book.
"Knew Who Killer Was & How It Was Done in 1st Hour"
I knew who killer was and how it was done within the first hour of this book. Waste of time. Way too drawn out. I usually like this author's books, but this was a no brainer.
"Intriguing Story a must "read" listen!"
5-star rating! This book is fast moving, intricately written & narrated, highly recommend and hope you enjoy it like I did.
"Another awesome mystery"
Another great book that I only put down to sleep. I so enjoyed trying to solve the mystery as I read. Thoroughly enjoyable. Definitely worth the money.
