Summary:

Enter the privileged world of English aristocrats and experience the passion, intrigue, and romantic pleasures of the incomparable Malorys - a family of dashing rogues, rakehell adventurers, and spirited ladies. Now Jeremy, the son of gentleman pirate James Malory, falls in love. . . . When Danny, a young woman who grew up on the streets of London with no memory of her real family, is banished from her gang because she helped handsome rakehell Jeremy Malory steal back the jewels his friend lost in a card game, Danny demands that Jeremy give her a job. She is determined to become respectable in order to fulfill her dream of marrying and starting a family. Intrigued by her beauty and spunk, Jeremy hires Danny as his upstairs maid, although he wants her as his mistress. Under the tutelage of Jeremy and his cousin Regina, Danny blossoms into a lady. Although she is drawn to Jeremy by passionate feelings she has never experienced before, she refuses to be anything more than a servant to him because she knows he is not the marrying kind. When Danny undergoes a Cinderella-like transformation and poses as Jeremy's new love in an attempt to help him avert a scandal, a few highly placed members of the ton remark on how familiar Danny looks. Now tongues are wagging, raising the question of her true identity, which threatens not only Danny's chances of capturing Jeremy's heart but her very life.

    The story drug out a little too long and the gutter talk from Danny became annoying after about 9 1/2 hours. Overall it is as ok

    The main character's "gutter speak" was exceedingly annoying to me. I plowed on but when the speech improved, the story's mood veered from romantic and took a more erotic turn. I thought the shift was rather sudden and I lost all interest in even finding out about the rest of the story. I did not finish this book.

    I have really liked this story. I felt drawn in immediately. I have always preferred Historical to any other kind of Romance novels and Johanna Lindsey is one of my favorite story tellers. Danny and Jeremy are simply lovely and there is good fun and humour through out.

    I loved this book! Johanna never fails when it comes to the Malorys. It had me laughing one minute, anxious the next and crying at the end. Nothing beats a good Cinderalla story. I can't wait to listen to the next Malory book with Drew's story.

    I did not like this at all. I tried getting past the 1st CD and ended up rejecting disks 1, 2, 3, 4, and 5, and promptly returning it back to Simply Audio. Maybe it was a mood thing, but this was not for me! I did pop in an audiobook by Nora Roberts and really enjoyed that more!

    I loved this book. The reader was fabulous. The characters were interesting and funny. There was a lot of chemistry between the two main characters. Anyone who has ever read a Johanna Lindsey book knows that she does a wonderful job of incorporating the characters from her other books. Highly recommended!
