After participating in the Jacobite Rising of 1745, Robin and Prudence, brother and sister, become engaged in a swashbuckling, romantic adventure. Our hero and heroine must cross-dress and switch genders if they are to escape prosecution a humorous move that allows Heyer to explore the manners and language affectations of the period as the two romp through the elite saloons and clubs of London. But what the two don't foresee is that they might fall in love along the way: Prudence with the elegant and dashing Sir Anthony Fanshawe, and Robin with the charming Letitia Grayson. Can the two unmask themselves without losing their lives?

Early Heyer not up to Later Works
Story is a wonderful one. Very wrong narrator.
The narrator, you just want to strangle her. Grating, awful men's voice. The voice of the "old gentleman" is so bad. . . ouch.
April Lady by same author. Good story (although not as good as The Masqueraders) but again a disappointing narrator. To check contrast, try listening to a bit of both versions of "The Convenient Marriage" the better narrator is Richard Armitage and although I dislike abridged versions of books, it was an easy decision to choose the more suitable narrator. I can grit my teeth only for so long.
Narrators/performers Richard Armitage, Cornelius Garrett, Michael Drew and Tony Britton would all have done the book more justice.
A good book spoiled.
Please get someone else to narrate and I'll buy the book again.
