This was my first Madeline Hunter book, but it won't be my last (especially since I didn't realize when I downloaded it that it was the second book in a series!). Her characters are well-drawn, and I've always been a big fan of the marriage of convenience/forced marriage plot, which she uses with aplomb in this book.
Polly Lee is a great reader---though the high-pitched/squeaky/baby-talk voice she did for the character Daphne did get annoying quickly.
The one main problem I had with this recording is the lack of pauses at scene breaks, leading to confusion as scenes ran together with no sense that there's a change of time, setting, characters, etc., which is a problem with the production/editing of the audio, not the reader or author.
