So, book 5, The Duke of Defiance, and I really enjoyed. I liked that Bran not only didn’t like being touched all that much but he absolutely hated his coat, waistcoat and cravat and took them off as often as he could. One gets so used to gentlemen being dressed so stuffily all the time it was nice reading about someone who undressed as much as Bran did.
It was also about Joanna (Jo) who was married to a vicar for 8 years and he blamed everything that was wrong with their sex life on her, even when she caught him in bed with another man Matthias blamed that on Jo too. Anyway, she and Matthias assumed she was barren when he never got her pregnant, but that wasn’t the case.
This was a good story but maybe a little too much sex for me. Three bedroom scenes is really too much, unless it’s a 400 page book.
As to the narration: Marian Hussey was simply incredible. The voices and the emotions with which she read were awesome.
