The Fireman’s Pole is a sweet romance featuring opposites attract in keeping with the Dreamspun Desires brand promise of contemporary romance with heartwarming heroes.
The story is told from both firefighter, Dale Maloney, and Baron Calminster, Benedict Raleigh’s, POV. Dale is new to Calminster village and doesn’t make the best first, or second, impression on the Lord of the Manor.
However, Ben is still taken with Dale and the two eventually warm up to one another. While their relationship develops, Ben finds himself fending off a bitter business partner intent on taking over Calminster Hall and village, and both Dale and Ben deal with some mystery involving several fires suddenly cropping up all over the village.
Personally, I thought it ended too abruptly and I’m disappointed I didn’t get the relationship HEA I was waiting for, and I was unsatisfied with the resolution for a couple of plot lines.
As for the narration, Finn Sterling uses distinctive character voices, he has good pacing and timing, and I love the emotion in his voice with his performance.
There are three things that keep me from giving this an enthusiastic thumbs up. First, Finn Sterling’s English accents need work. Second, was the way Dale’s accent and voice pitch kept changing throughout the performance. Third, I really wish Sterling wouldn’t use a high falsetto for every woman’s voice. There are multiple types of female voices with their own respective note ranges and I hope Sterling starts to use a range when voicing his future female characters.
