Narrator James Langton's voice is as smooth as warm chocolate sauce--and just as yummy. This sophisticated Regency romance is filled with smart dialogue, well-done accents, and acting so good the listener won't want to pause between chapters. Fate, poachers, and a trapped rabbit bring handsome and disillusioned Duncan Wentworth into the path of the mysterious, lovely widow Duchess Matilda Wakefield. Matilda holds dangerous secrets, but despite them and her reticence, Duncan's heart wants what it wants. As delivered by Langton, Duncan's voice is interesting and well done. Matilda's is lighter, feminine, and distinct. Langton especially excels in his portrayal of two miscreants whose lower-class accents are simply perfect. This is a witty, well-presented listening experience. A.C.P. © AudioFile 2019, Portland, Maine [Published: AUGUST 2019]
