Audio heartthrob Simon Prebble returns to melt listeners with another Regency-era romantic mystery. When a teenaged girl living in a convent receives a kiss from a strange man in the dark, she never dreams she'll encounter him later in life. Prebble softens his voice to convey the heroine and the other female characters and invests the men with an infinite variety of vocal quirks and accents. Hero Sebastian, of course, comes across as a tender brute full of testosterone. Prebble has mastered the art of performing graphic scenes in a way that leaves the listener limp with sensation. Who knew one kiss could be so erotic? R.L.L. Winner of AudioFile Earphones Award © AudioFile 2006, Portland, Maine [Published: FEB/ MAR 06]
