Publisher's Summary

Brought to you by Penguin.

Renowned gamester and the first to admit that he is entirely void of a romantic disposition, Max Ravenscar regards all eligible females with indifference and unconcern.

But when he meets the woman his young cousin Adrian is bent on marrying - the beautiful Deborah Grantham, mistress of her aunt's gaming house - he finds that none of his experience in risk and gambling has prepared him for such a worthy opponent.

Excellent vintage Heyer

I saw a review saying this narrator was patronising but I disagree. I thought her story telling excellent. The story is original and although the plot is a trifle transparent it by no means diminishes the enjoyment

one of my favorite georgette heyers

Loved it. Could visualise it as I heard it. Great fun. Narrator engaging; different voices not brilliant but quite adequate.

wonderful!

A Heyer version of Pride and Prejudice. It is funny, has a spirited heroine, lots of lovely characters. I would say top drawer Heyer. The narrator understands the book and seems to really enjoy acting it out. It's a historical rom com. Fabulous!

Fun story, patronising narration.

Really fun story. One of my favorite Georgette Heyer stories but the narration was quite patronizing.

Excellent narration, much better than prev version

I love this book and was really disappointed in the first audible version I purchased on this site. I kept it, in case it grew on me, but it did not.
I was very pleased to see this was being re-recorded by a different narrator. She does an excellent job.
The abuse the lead characters throw at each other and the feelings each felt were entirely lost in the last version. This narrator, takes her time to emphasise every word and insult, plus expresses emotions and feelings as they go up and down in this extremely entertaining story. Heyer at her best, and the narrator is well up to the job. Enjoy the listen. I did.

Good narration with a few oddities

I love this Georgette Heyer story and the narrator generally does a good job although I think she could make Deb a bit more fiery in places - also for some reason Lucius Kennett is played as a cockney rather than the Irish captain that he is. This sounds a bit odd as the language is unchanged. All in all really enjoyed it though

The Queen of Regency Romance does it again. The narrator does a good job too.

Witty

I have always enjoyed Georgette Heyer books and this was no exception. However the narration was at times quite irritating and for me the narrator missed the very clever humour and interchange on numerous occasions. It was as if the listener was not able to appreciate the humour without very exaggerated speech!
