Audiobook review: 8/10

"You're not going anywhere," Max interrupted. "Calm yourself, Lysette. It's not good for you to become excited." His possessiveness made her strangely giddy. As far as he was concerned, she was his, and no one was going to take her away from him.
Max stared at Etienne. His voice was soft, but it contained a note that chilled Lysette's blood. "If you so much as disarrange a hair on her head, I'll tear you apart."
Lysette couldn't believe it, but she didn't care about her ruined reputation. The only thing that mattered was that she wouldn't have to marry Etienne.
I must say that I didn't expected this story to be so good. It really keeps you reading (or listening).
The story is very simple, Lysette Kersaint is running from her stepfather who wants to marry her with a man she despises, Etienne Sagesse. Then she meets Maximilien Vallerand, a notorious rake and widower who is rumored to have kliied his wife. In Max's home she finds protection against her stepfather and Etienne. She knows that Maximillien is only helping her because Etinne is his sworn enemy for having had an affair with and murdering Max's wife, Corrine. But while Max's plan is to revenge for what had happened he finds himself caring for Lysette despite not wanting. Naturally they end up falling in love for each other is this steamy romance.
But the real mystery is that who had really murdered Corinne, while everyone during all those years thought that it ahd been Max, is only reavealed in the end and it's a shocking revelation...
If you are looking for a VERY STEAMY romance this is the one for you.
