Following Simon Prebble's steamy renditions of previous episodes in the Cynster story, Roz Landor has big shoes to fill. At first sounding prim and proper, like the British gentry she depicts in this Regency romance, Landor quickly shows why she’s an award-winning narrator. She convincingly portrays terrified 10-year-old girls, ardent lovers, nefarious kidnappers, and disgruntled relatives. As the passion between innkeeper Emily Beauregard and gentleman Jonas Tallent threatens to boil over, Landor's even pacing serves to increase the anticipation. While Landor usually brings just the right tone to each character's voice, at times her impression of Jonas sounds more tired than virile. But even that doesn't detract from her overall impressive performance. E.N. © AudioFile 2009, Portland, Maine [Published: OCTOBER 2009]
