Publisher's Summary

Captain John Staple’s exploits in the Peninsula had earned him the sobriquet Crazy Jack amongst his fellows in the Dragoon Guards. Now home from Waterloo, life in peacetime is rather dull for the adventure-loving captain. But when he finds himself lost at an unmanned toll-house in the Pennines, his soldiering days suddenly pale away beside an adventure - and romance - of a lifetime.

Great book - reader only OK

I LOVE GEORGETTE HEYER!!!!! And this is a really fun book!!! Mystery, laughs, & romance! Daniel Hill is ... (disagreeing somewhat with a previous reviewer) ... a fairly good reader who goes over the top sometimes, and when he goes over the top he makes the character that he is reading sound like an asthmatic that is trying to shout while having an asthma attack. Luckily, this happens less and less as the story progresses. I was able to get past this issue pretty easily. (And if he sounds familiar ... he played the obnoxious Harvey Nigel Baines in the BBC's '90s sit-com "Waiting for God".)

No bad Georgette Heyer Book, STOP ABRIDGING THEM!

I have read and re-read these books since I was a child and they are all wonderful! Please don't fob us off with abridged versions though - two of my favorites, Venetia and Slyvester are only here in an abridged versions, and there is no point in even trying to listen to them if they do not contain every beautiful word and cant phrase!
