Summary

A spinster hatches a plan (with a smattering of blackmail)  

Miss Augusta Widmore has no time for proprieties. She must force her sister's ne'er-do-well betrothed to the altar with all haste - or watch her sister bear the scandalous consequences. But with the blackguard resisting his duty, she needs leverage. And only one man can provide it.  

A giant holds all the cards (or so he thinks)  

Sebastian Reaver has no time for presumptuous women. He has a club to run. So, when a perfect nuisance invades his office, demands a fortune in markers, and refuses to leave until he relinquishes them to her, he knows just the thing to send her scurrying back to Hampshire: Exact a price this prim country spinster would never agree to pay. A fiery battle begins (with both sides playing for keeps)  

Ordinarily, Augusta would never agree to become the mistress of a notorious club owner - whether he's a lowborn ruffian or the wealthiest man in London or the most intriguing, ill-tempered giant she's ever encountered...or all three. Calling his bluff raises the stakes (and the heat), but retreat will mean ruin for Augusta. Now, Sebastian wants her total surrender, and he has a few tricks up his sleeve - soul-stealing kisses, unexpected honor, and electrifying persuasion for the woman he never saw coming.  

Contains mature themes.

Dreadful narrator

Another book ruined by the narrator’s idea of an upper class English accent. She insisted on putting an ‘r’ after every ‘a’ making nonsense of too many phrases, so fact is farct, back is bark, cat is cart - you get the idea! She tries regional accents for the ‘lower classes’ but they’re weak to non-existent. The problem with English is that pronunciations don’t follow rules and place names are a nightmare. Please, American narrators, I would rather hear your own native accent than badly pronounced English. Also listen to Barbara Rosenblat & Rosalyn Landor - both Americans - for the best ‘posh’ english accents.

Good story/ horrific narration

I really like this author, but I can't stand the narrator. Unfortunately , she reads all the books. I try every third one, as the narration is so awful I can't usually finish the book. In this case I put the speed to 1.5 to get the story, but not the terrible accents.
This narrator always changes "a" to "o", and thinks that is enough to make it into an English accent. I have family members from England, and I let them listen to a little...they could not stop laughing. For them it was funny, but to someone that loves to listen to books, it is a nightmare.
I can recommend that anyone that likes this series to switch to the ebook, and don't bother with the audio....unless you too want a good laugh!
The audio is not worth the credit. I have not purchased other series that have this same narrator, and I am finished with this series.

Wonderful book by a fantastic author

Elisa Braden never fails to delight. In some series, the heroines meld together without having a defined individuality. That is not the case, however, with the Rescued from Ruin books. Once again, I was swept away with the characters and actually shed a tear at one point. It was wonderful.

Excellent series

Mary Sarah's narration takes some getting used to since she has a sort of sing song narrative. But overall she does a great job. I have listened to the entire series and highly recommend.

"SHE wants the green GIANT over there.

The red hair over there knows how to get what she needs and want from the GIANT.
