Even the most proper young lady yearns for adventure. But when the very well bred Miss Sarah Clarke-Townsend impulsively takes the place of her pregnant twin, it puts her own life at risk. If the kidnappers after her sister discover they've abducted Sarah instead, she will surely pay with her life....
Rob Carmichael survived his disastrous family by turning his back on his heritage and becoming a formidable Bow Street Runner with a talent for rescuing damsels in distress. But Sarah is one damsel who is equal to whatever comes. Whether racing across Ireland with her roguish rescuer or throwing herself into his arms, she challenges Rob at every turn.

Avoid Steven Crossley as a narrator.
Probably a Jack Reacher novel.
No. I will avoid him.
Steven Crossley should NOT try to do accents and/or change pitch to do women's voices. As the book gets going he sometimes forgets to do his accents, etc. and he just reads - then he is good. He reads well and expressively. When he tries to affect voices he fails.

Terrible, terrible, reader
I would love to buy the next book in this series but will not because it is also read by Steven Crossley. He reads the female voices in a tone of ridicule, like he is making fun of or satirizing them.
Maybe if he were reading a book by a misogynist writer like Jonathan Swift.
A different reader
It is sad that a novel by such a talented writer of historical romance is being read by a man who sounds like he is making fun of the genre.
