A fiery, unconventional Scot, Adaira Ferguson wears breeches, swears, and has no more desire to marry than she does to follow society's dictates of appropriate behavior. She trusts no man with the secret she desperately protects.
He can't forget.
Haunted by his past, Roark, the Earl of Clarendon, rigidly adheres to propriety, holding himself and those around him to the highest standards, no matter the cost. Betrayed once, he's guarded and leery of all women.
Mistaking Roark for a known spy, Adaira imprisons him. Infuriated, he vows vengeance. Realizing her error, she's appalled and releases him, but he's not satisfied with his freedom. Roark is determined to transform Adaira from an ill-mannered hoyden to a lady of refinement.
He succeeds only to discover he preferred the free-spirited Scottish lass who first captured his heart.

I thought Adaira “capturing” Roark and putting him in the dungeon was pretty funny when she and Brayan first did it but it became unfunny when he ran out of candles and had to fight off rats with a broken chair leg AND she still wanted to keep him locked up until Ewan came to let him out. That wasn’t very good writing on the author’s part, I didn’t think. And after what his father put him through as a kid I can see why he hated the darkness.
Oh, while I think about it I’d like to thank this author for having beautiful heroines, instead of having one that’s too plain or too plump or too unattractive or too whatever and expect us to believe that a handsome god-like hero is going to fall for her. That’s not even close to believable.
This was another great read by Ms. Cameron, and now I’ve read about 12 of her books, and will keep reading until I’ve read read them. This one had just enough angst for it not to become monotonous or boring. There were just enough bad guys and bad woman to keep everyone on their toes, but I don’t think Helene, Otto and Freidrick got what the deserved. BUT Edgar got ALL he deserved, as did Brayan. It was an exciting read.
The other secondary’s were great, too: Lord and Lady Ferguson, Seonaid, Dugall, Yancy, Flynn. And I loved the servants: Westbrook, Maisey and Pepperhill.
There was no swearing to speak of, very nice sexual attraction and very sensual sex scenes.
As to the narrator: As with The Viscount’s Vow this narration was incredible. Ms. Zimmerman did a perfect job with the voices and excellent job with emotions. I don’t know how Ms. Zimmerman didn’t get a solid 5 stars from every listener of this book. Perfect male voices, perfect female voices, and perfect emotions! What more could you ask for? If you listen to the first book and this one, the 3rd, you won't miss anything. The second book wasn't all that much and the narrator sucked, IMO.

Regency with some heat
I don't want to spoil the plot for anyone so I will just say that I couldn't believe that there could be any romance or happy ending between the hero and heroine. But the author very convincingly creates just that for the story. The hero is an incredibly forgiving man and so likeable! The heroine is a bit spoiled and still a little childish about getting her own way, but I was also at the age of 20 so it's understandable. I loved the blending of Scots, French and English as well.
The narrator is quite talented. She is able to create individual voices for the characters and handles varied accents with great finesse. My only complaint was that I didn't understand a few of the words because of the narrator"s own accent. But that didn't detract from my enjoyment of this book.
I did receive the audiobook from the author with the understanding that I would give it an unbiased review after listening.
