PI Honey Winston attempts to retrieve love letters written to Prince Rubinoff, a notorious Lothario. Catching her in the act, Rubinoff is instantly attracted to her lithe body and Valkyrie-like attributes. Angela Brazil's reading of this unusual romance brings out the sparks between the PI and the prince. He woos, and she swoons amid kisses and steamy sex scenes. Brazil works hard to keep the thin plot (Rubinoff hires Winston to be his bodyguard) from becoming X-rated. Her gentle voice draws the listener into the whirlwind romance as the silver-tongued Rubinoff and the feisty PI fall in lust, then in love. Originally published in 1984, THE GOLDEN VALKYRIE lacks some of the action of today's romances. Brazil's enthralling narration makes up for the slow plot.
