Have been hoping this series would be done in audiobook format. An all time favorite. A real treat to hear this, and with the wonderful Susan Ericksen narrating. Looking forward to the rest of the series.

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.

Any additional comments?

A masterful mix of plots, schemes and romance, including disguised siblings, abductions, lost heirs, and highwaymen, all orchestrated by the egocentric father of our disguised brother and sister. This unique Georgette Heyer offering, takes place not in her usual Regency Period, but an earlier time just after the Jacobite Uprising, and as a result is a less familiar background to most of us. I have read this novel many times over the years, and snapped it up in audio as soon as it appeared. I found it a delightful listening experience, and look forward to visiting with these old friends often in the future. Narrator Ruth Sillers is new to me, and I thought she did and excellent job of bringing each of these characters to life.

Rich and handsome, the hope of ambitious mothers and despair of his sisters, the Marquis of Alverstoke sees no reason to put himself out for anyone. But when a distant connection applies to him for help, he finds himself far from bored.

Frederica is one of Georgette Heyers best, and translates wonderfully into audio. I thoroughly enjoyed this audio version of one of my long time favorites. Narrator Clifford Norgate does a wonderful job making these charactors come to life. Thank you Audible for making books by this author available. Please keep them coming.
