Outstanding Narration - more please!
By far the best of Lucinda Brant
Arguably one of the best historical romances available. It ticks all the boxes.
The carriage ride is not only highly amusing but displays the arrogant main male character's polish and class in a most fascinating way.
Alex Wyndham's performances are nothing short of genius. A truly amazingly talented actor whose depths have no limit.
Having exhausted most of Brant's work, this is by far the greatest story line with an interesting prologue that delivers a peculiar basis to keep you gripped throughout the chapters. Highly recommended!
