This one grows on you

Like the other reviewers, this used not to be one of my favorite Heyers. Its main theme, that comfort and friendship rather than passion is what lasts in a relationship, sits oddly amongst Heyer's more traditional swashbuckling romances. However I find that as I get older I warm to A Civil Contract and have become rather fond of the prosiac heroine. Definitely worth a go.

Beautifully read

The story is, admittedly, not one of the most sparkling from Georgette Heyer, but the reading could not be bettered. I have loved Georgette Heyer's books since I was a schoolgirl, but found this one a bit hard to 'plough through' - listening to Phyllida Law, I had no difficulty at all in enjoying what is quite a long listen. Oh, for her to also do 'The Grand Sophy', 'The Spanish Bride' or 'These Old Shades' which have remained my favourites for decades - and for Audible to make them available, please.
