Publisher's Summary

Horatia Winwood is the youngest and the least attractive of the three Winwood sisters. She also has a stammer. But when the enigmatic and eminently eligible Earl of Rule offers for her oldest sister’s hand – a match that makes financial and social sense, but would break her heart – it is Horatia who takes matters into her own impetuous hands. Can she save her family’s fortune? Or is she courting disaster? Witty, charming, elegant, and always delightful, Georgette Heyer – the undisputed queen of Regency Romance – brings the whole period to life with deft precision and glorious characters.

Love Georgette Hayer

I read this book a long time ago and loved it. This is a lovely story that's old fashioned with wonderful characters. My only complaint....... I wish this was the unabridged version of this story. This abridged version was missing some of the details and sweetness.

Richard Armitage read wonderfully. Each character has unique voice and his inflections are superb. Definitely, one of the best! 😘"

Excellent Narration!

Across the boards it seems that everyone is in agreement that these Georgette Heyer novels should be unabridged. I certainly add my vote to that.

While this isn't necessarily my favorite Georgette Heyer offering, it is entertaining nonetheless. This particular story contains more wacky hijinks than her other works.

Once again, Richard Armitage provides stellar narration. He provides three dimensional characters using only his voice. I'm pretty sure he could make my grocery list come to life, were he to read it aloud.

All in all I found this to be a very pleasant listen.
