Narrator Brittany Pressley delivers an A-plus performance of Kleypas's beloved Texas romance. Pressley introduces Haven Travis, daughter of an oil magnate, with a lilting drawl whose musical notes ring melodiously. Her declarative delivery packs an aural punch as Haven faces and later escapes a horrifically abusive husband. Hearing the menace that Haven's husband, Nick, exudes is chilling. Starting over in Houston, Haven reconnects with rough-edged millionaire Hardy Cates. Pressley drops her voice a register to portray Hardy's virile strength. Hardy's protective nature and his verbal wiliness are also exquisitely expressed, convincing listeners that Hardy is Haven's perfect match. The performance is a sensual delight, replete with romance, danger, and imperfect characters. A must-listen narration from Pressley. C.A.
