Another Lucinda Brant winner

This was also a very well written book with some very funny scenes especially at the very beginning of the story. Sorry to have to wait for the release of the next book in the series especially since I found no information regarding it on Audible. The second book still remains my favorite and then the Midnight Marriage but this is not to take away from Dair Devil. I felt LB did a fabulous job developing the new characters and yet mixing the old ones in this story as well, making the book feel more personal to its readers. I truly enjoyed this book and recommend it highly to anyone looking for substance and not fluff.

Alex Wyndham brings these Roxton men to life.

Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

I would most definitely recommend "Dair Devil" to all of my friends to read, but I'd suggest they do so after either reading or listening to the previous 3 in this series.


What was one of the most memorable moments of Dair Devil?

The most memorable moments of Dair Devil are so many that I really can't easily narrow them down.... When the young men climbed in the window in loin cloths and chased a group of dancers around the room so their buddy could come in and save the ladies was quite funny. It sounds so much like a plan a group of young fellows would devise to help one of the group look to be the her to win a ladies heart. Didn't quite turn out as planned though, and caused some embarrassing moments for those involved.


Which character – as performed by Alex Wyndham – was your favorite?

My favorite characters, were Dair, who is one of the new characters, vaguely mentioned in "Autumn Duchess". Rory, the intellectual equal of many a man, and of course, Antonia, the Duchess of Roxton from book one.


Any additional comments?

Lucinda Brant always has interesting plots, creative, strong characters, and events often based in true history. I like that she weaves her stories around the characters of one book, but also in her own subtle way, introduces characters who will show up later, so she sets the stage well, and leaves the door open to adding more layers to her series.
In the audio versions for this series, Alex Wyndham is shown to be a master of narration bringing the different characters to life through his ability to create varied, yet believable, voices/accents for each character. You can really get a feel for the character since he seems to have the ability to allow their personalities to shine through as well.
