This is an audio experience the listener does not want to end. In 1772, lovely and desperate Leigh Strachan is in need of a larger-than-life hero to help her avenge the death of her family. S.T. Maitland used to be "Le Seigneur du Minuit," a dashing highwayman, but after an explosion three years ago, he is no longer what Leigh hoped for or wants. This is a poignant and funny love story, packed with action and beautifully narrated. Nicholas Boulton's rich voice and dramatic presentation embrace Maitland in all his glory and imperfections. Boulton is equally adroit with Leigh, giving her a brittleness and sharp tongue that eventually thaw as the story progresses. Each English and French accent, whether upper- or lower-class, male or female, is spot-on. Captivating. A.C.P. © AudioFile 2013, Portland, Maine [Published: JUNE 2013]
