This is one of Amanda Quick's best and handled superbly by Barbara Rosenblat. Charming, humorous and entirely enhanced by the narration.
If you're a fan of Regency romance, this is decidedly worth a listen.
Delightful story and very well narrated by Phyllida Nash. You can count on a Georgette Heyer to have a very satisfying ending, and this story is just charming all around. I especially enjoyed Mr. Beaumaris's conversations with Ulysses, the mongrel, and Arabella's warm, giving nature.
I am a huge Crusie fan, but the narration just didn't work for me for Trust Me on This. While her character voices are engaging, Dawe's performance of the narrative portion of the book wasn't something I could finish.
I thoroughly enjoyed this Heyer. Funny, charming, great hero. Daniel Philpott does an excellent job narrating, and I'm even comparing him to the beloved Mr. Armitage. I found this completely credit-worthy.
Richard Armitage is wonderful. Delicious voice for the hero and a wide range of distinguishable voices of many characters. Ordinarily, I don't like abridged versions of books because I read before listening. However, I think the Queen of Regency benefits from a bit of judicious editing as long as performed by the magnificent Armitage.
The story was fine as was the narrator, but the production quality of the recording was so weak that I gave up listening. It sounds as if it were recorded in a bathroom.
This is a very sweet and satisfying story, ably enhanced by Carolyn Morris' performance. While there is much use of modern language and sensibilities for a Regency, good story writing won my heart.
Sarah Woodward delivers an excellent performance, especially in Sophy. I can picture a young Katharine Hepburn in the role, bold and brave, undaunted by being female in a male dominated society. Witty and fun, certainly squeeky clean.
There is a also a PDF attached with a nice discussion of Heyer and her work.
If you were to listen to only one historical romance, this is the one. Jessica Trent is the best heroine ever and The Beast makes an outstanding hero. Wonderfully satisfying story masterfully performed by Kate Reading.
I am on my second listening of this and am enjoying even more than the first time. It's great fun. If "Ocean's Eleven" and "Miss Congeniality" had a baby, it would be this book.
Scott Brick does a good job with a casual, slightly snarky delivery perfect for the text.
I read this book, as I often do, before listening and enjoyed it both ways. I liked the unfolding of Tiberius' motivation and the building of their relationship. I also appreciated having a child character being a real person and not just a symbol. This is my second Grace Burrowes book and I am now a fan.
Roger Hampton delivered a great performance in my opinion. I loved his portrayal of the wordy, stuffy Tiberius as well as the sexy Tiberius. The female voices were fine for me as well. The challenge was Fiona's little girl voice, but I didn't find his performance of her distracting enough to diminish the book.
I eagerly await Book 3 and I will most certainly seek out more of Roger Hampton's narrations.
