When a powerful, decisive aristocrat undertakes to protect an absent-minded young inventress from England's enemies, he finds his orderly world turned into chaos. Merlin Lambourne's stubborn dream of flight puts her at risk, not to mention driving Ransom crazy. In spite of himself, he's oddly enchanted by this muddled miss and her eccentric ways... but can he overcome his own fears and realize her invention may be the answer to saving both their lives?
A whimsical Regency-era tale of flying machines, fancy, and love among the hedgehogs.
Laura Kinsale personally chose the exceptional talent of Nicholas Boulton to narrate Midsummer Moon as a fully voiced audiobook, creating a unique work that brings all the life and color of the original to audio.

“…personalities and wit expertly delivered, further adding to the charm of this delightful performance.” (Audiofile Magazine)
I don't know-I just didn't like the whole premise. I didn't really care for Merlin and the plot was weak.
I'm starting to listen to Lynn Austin and will listed to Diana Gabaldon's new book "Written in My Heart's Own Blood" narrated by Davina Porter after I have finished reading it.
I have listened to all his performances of Laura Kinsale's books. I have looked at his other narrations but they don't look like books I would enjoy. He is as skilled in this performance as he is in the others. Solid.
Ehhh- I didn't like the whole premise. I have read that some think Merlin was autistic-I don't. I just think she is awkward. Listening to is was painful at times, at other times she was just annoying.
Just a simple girl living the simple life. Nothing is complicated when the power of imagination leads the way. Close your eyes & just listen
I only listened to this one completely through because of narrator. Nicholas Boulton is an incredible reader BUT this story was just so-so.....a little unbelieveable ....a little far-fetched..... A little lackluster.... A little 'hurry up and get to next chapter' kinda book.
Some reviews noted positive comments about the hedgehog but REALLY? Why? The 'heroine' was an eccentric dimwit totally unmatched with the 'hero'. So sorry Nicholas Boulton wasted his time on this one......totally not a match between story and reader.
I admit I'm a Smut Glutton, I prefer Male Narrators, Sexy Book Covers get me and I'm 32 years Happily Married.
If you want to listen to an entertaining story written by Laura Kinsale, that when you finish, you feel you did not waste 13+ hours of your time or your precious audio credit, don't purchase this one! Go for "Flowers from the Storm" or "The Prince of Midnight". Sometimes I thought the female character was mentally challenged to the point of being physically taken advantage of because she was soo naive. Sure she is written as a genius inventor but something just felt wrong about her intimacy with the male character.
While I feel the author crashed on the story, her choice of NIcholas Boulton as narrator have her flying to the stars... 5 stars for "performance" rating that is!
