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! 😘"

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.

An interesting, and slightly subdued version of Georgette Heyer's novel, superbly interpreted by an excellent British actor. This version is easier to believe than the full text, and a charming listen. Mr Armitage's capacity to give voice to young ladies is a joy, whilst continuing to use his natural timbre for clearly tall, robust, male characters, and managing camp males too. The other two of Miss Heyer's novels read Mr Armitage have fewer characters, and less Regency Romp: this really is read as if my a series of players. Enjoy.

Highwaymen, duels and excitement all come together in this novel. And Richard Armitage adds gripping narration to the plot. Well worth a listen...and 4 stars!

I found this great listening. Richard Armitage is a good narrator. My only criticism, is that the book is abridged, and left out so much delightful pieces & even characters. I fail to understand why these audio books need to be abridged, when so many are not these days. So, on that score, I'm very disappointed. But, the reading is delightful, and I enjoyed Richard's interpretation very much. :-) :-)
missed too much from the book. didn't like the reader. felt a female would have been easier to relate to the character
