Helen Lloyd's skillful and charming narration does much to carry the listener through a problematic plot. Portia Gadstone answers an advert, expecting to marry the mad, old Marquess of Marsden, but his son, Locke, intervenes--leaving her no choice but to accept him in place of his father. Locke knows that Portia must be hiding something, for no young woman in her right mind would want to marry his father and moulder away in the country. There's a crackling sexual tension between Portia and Locke, which Lloyd seems to relish giving voice to. But even her skill cannot save the story from an opening that seems straight out of a bodice ripper. K.M.P. © AudioFile 2017, Portland, Maine [Published: JANUARY 2017]
