Narrator Ashford McNab masterfully draws the listener into this historical romance set in England in the 1700s. Messalina Greycourt has been given in marriage to Gideon Hawthorne, who is her sinister uncle, the Duke of Windemere's, fixer. McNab gives distinct voices to each of the characters. Listeners can hear the evil in the Duke. Gideon has literally fought his way up from the gutter and is looking forward to his marriage to solidify his place in society. The listener can picture Sam, the boy in Gideon's employ, as he cares for Messalina's puppy, Daisy. McNab brings out the agony in Gideon's voice while bringing the audience to tears at learning of the horror of his past. Listeners will root for him and Messalina.
