Narrator Nneka Okoye once again dazzles as she portrays an international cast of characters in the second installment of the Las Léonas romance series. Her deft characterizations and range of accents, including Latinx, Scottish, and French, create an expansive world within the festivities of the 1889 Exposition Universelle in Paris. When the crisply composed Cora Bristol, Duchess of Sundridge, approaches the vivacious heiress Manuela del Carmen Caceres Galvan with a purchase offer for her Venezuelan property, Manuela's counteroffer requires an insider tour of Paris's sapphic delights. As Cora guides her through the City of Lights, listeners meet older lesbian couples and expatriate artists, and experience lively nightlife. Okoye's voice smolders as the women's simmering chemistry envelops them and they strain against family obligations and social expectations.
