Enjoyable Regency Spy Series
Narration is Fantastic in this Regency Spy Series!
My Earl the Spy by Audrey Harrison is an adventurous historical clean romance set during the Regency period and the Napoleonic Wars. While the romance in this second book is subtle, there are multiple scenes with action, adventure, and near-death experiences for our heroes.
The story centers around Henry Howarth, the Earl of Grinstead, who is secretly a spy for king and country and who is tasked with discovering who may be disloyal to the crown. To track down a particularly dangerous criminal, Henry obtains the assistance of Millie Holland, who is the cousin to one of Henry's close associates. However, the criminal is privy to Millie’s involvement and soon kidnaps her and treats her not so tenderly. Henry is distressed at the result his actions brought to Millie and after they escape, he protects Millie and nurses her back to health, falling in love in the process.
While I really appreciated Millie’s strong character and the slow development of Henry’s feelings toward Millie, the dialog is a bit jilted at times and unrealistic. However, the narration by Melanie Fraser really helped. Melanie did a fantastic job and really brought the characters to life, giving each character their own distinct voice. Melanie's crisp British accent and soft refined tones were perfect for this audio and really contributed to my enjoyment of this book. I look forward to listening to Melanie in other audiobooks.
