At 25, Princess Adrianne lives a life most people would envy. Beautiful and elegant, she spends her days dabbling in charities and her nights floating from one glamorous gala to the next. But her pampered-rich-girl pose is a ruse, a carefully calculated effort to hide a dangerous truth.
For 10 years Adrianne has lived for revenge. As a child, she could only watch the cruelty hidden behind the facade of her parents' fairy-tale marriage. Now she has the perfect plan to make her famous father pay. She will take possession of the one thing he values above all others - The Sun and the Moon, a fabled necklace beyond price.
Yet just as she is poised to take her vengeance, she meets a man who seems to divine her every secret. Clever, charming, and enigmatic, Philip Chamberlain has his own private reasons for getting close to Princess Adrianne. And only when it's too late will she see the hidden danger…as she finds herself up against two formidable men - one with the knowledge to take her freedom, the other with the power to take her life.

Confusing story about a woman who lives an independent life but then lets herself be dominated by man. That's not the plotline however, but it happens and is portraied as ok.
The biggest problem with this audiobook is the narrator. The protagonist of this story is a woman so having it read by a man is a poor choice. The protagonist is an american woman who grew up in an arabic country but spoke english with her mother. The book clearly states that when she moved to the states she perfected her english and is later shown to get away with a Brooklyn- and even a Cocney-accent. But the brittish narrator speaks her lines with an arabic accent and makes her sound like a little girl throughout the book even though she's in her mid twenties most of the time. That makes her sound rather dim.
The main male character however, though in his early thirtees sounds as if he were an old man.
In combination their relationship feels rather inappropriate.
Save your money and read something else!
