Earphones Award Winner

by | Read by Nicholas Boulton

Romantic Fiction • 10.75 hrs. • Unabridged • © 2022

Narrator Nicholas Boulton narrates a delightful romp through romance tropes and genres. Trying to do the right thing, or whatever Valentine Layton, Duke of Malvern, understands that to be, has only landed him in upsetting situations. Boulton perfectly captures Valentine’s tendency to become stiff and overly formal when he is distressed. Being stuck with the deeply annoying (but also surprisingly charming) Bonaventure Tarleton grates on Valentine—until it doesn’t. On the surface, Bonny seems flighty and flirty, but Boulton gives him unexpected depths of compassion and insight into Valentine and the workings of the world at large. Secondary characters are performed with verve, wholly befitting this charming escapade. A delightful performance will leave listeners alternately cackling with glee and cringing in sympathy. K.M.P.
