Richard Armitage turns in a stellar performance of the lovelorn and hasty hero of Heyer’s Regency romance. Even better, Armitage creates wonderful voices for the female characters—from the stern society matrons to the giddy debutantes. Armitage moves the narrative along at a breezy, gossipy pace that is perfectly suited to the novel’s action and scene descriptions. Sylvester, the Duke of Salford, must find just the right bride for his aristocratic station. Phoebe Marlow seems an unlikely candidate, and she doesn’t care for him either—until circumstances bring them together in an unexpected way. The charm of Heyer’s characters and Armitage's skillful performance will have the listener longing for more. R.F. © AudioFile 2009, Portland, Maine [Published: OCTOBER 2009]
