Summary

Lucretia ‘Crecy’ Holbrook has a secret, a secret she has kept for many years. Even her dearest confidant and sister, Belle, would not understand what Crecy is prepared to do, the risks she is prepared to take, to get her heart’s desire.  

For Crecy is not like the other smiling débutantes; she despises poetry, thinks dancing a chore, and is quite prepared to throw something at the next fool to compare her to Aphrodite.   

Far more likely to return from a country walk with a badger’s skull and some bloody, injured creature than a posy of wildflowers, Crecy is drawn to the dark, the damaged, and the unlovable. Her heart longs for one man alone, one with a wounded soul, one so dreadfully damaged that even her tender care might not be enough to save him.   

Viscount Demorte is everything she dreams of. With a reputation that covers blackmail, murder and madness, cruelly handsome Lord Gabriel Greyston, Viscount Demorte, is far more dangerous than any wounded dog, and his bite just might leave Crecy ruined beyond repair.

Amazing

I can't say how amazed I was by the writing and plot of this novel. I could never imagine I would come to like Gabriel, but I actually ended up loving this "crazy" hero. I was worried when I read the previous book and Cressie was falling in love with Gabriel ( as ?I thought he was evil), but it's like the old saying "never judge a book by it's cover". His OCD is funny and sad. The author really captures this disorder and it's many quirks. I have never encountered such a change from villan into a hero, since Elizabeth Hoyt's Valentine Napier...which was really masterful and done just as well in this book. Comparisons to Elizabeth Hoyt is a great compliment, as she is one of the best.
Reading how someone so damaged and conflicted comes out of that closed world by finding love is a story of hope and sacrifice. You experience the change step-by-step, so that you become invested in the transformation and cheer for the hero to get better and find happiness. There may not be the typical HEA, but it's there in the hope you feel that it will happen.
I finished and wanted to start again. Excellent.

5-star listen all-around. The Villain gets a second chance.

SUPERB narration, EXCELLENT writing...I still don’t know quite how the author pulled it off, but she changed a zero into a hero, and I found myself having empathy for Gabriel- the same jerk from Book 6. This author/narrator combo is a hit, and I’ll be snatching up further titles from this team.

Tormented

I hate to say this book is entertaining, more enlightening. Ms. Leech did a very good job of making you feel the anguish of a person with OCD and the special people who help them live with the disease. The story fell into place following book 6 and by its finish the reader becomes very supportive of Gabriel.

There is steaminess, suspense and some lighter elements to make this a hard to put down read. Mr. Battley, narrates superbly.
