Handing the narration of Stephanie Laurens's Cynster backlist to Simon Prebble ranks as a genius decision. Listeners will undoubtedly agree when they hear THE PERFECT LOVER. Prebble has created an auditory bubble bath for historical romance listeners. His smooth prose evokes Laurens's idyllic English countryside, the aristocratic maneuverings at a house party, and a murder mystery when a flirtatious guest ends up dead. The romance between Simon Cynster and Portia Ashford is perfection. Prebble delivers a deep, commanding voice with a gruff edge for Simon and switches seamlessly to a lighter, genuine-sounding voice for Portia. His pacing and phrasing bring total engagement with Laurens's seductive text. Prebble further imbues his reading with a delicious anticipation that keeps listeners hooked from start to finish. C.A.
