        June 7, 2004
        Unlike the hero of Quinn's newest Regency-era romance, who falls in love with his cousin's wife upon first sight, readers won't be swept off their feet by the protagonists of this tale. Indeed, while Michael Stirling, dubbed the Merry Rake, is charming enough, subdued Penelope Bridgerton rarely seems worthy of his pursuit. All is well at the novel's outset, aside from the fact that Michael covets his cousin, the Earl of Kilmartin's, wife. Then, barely two chapters into the book, his cousin suffers an aneurysm and dies. Devastated and unable to cope with his new position as earl and his feelings for Penelope, Michael flees to India for four years, only to return still very much in love and suffering from malaria. In London, the two attend social events, trade quips and try to restore their friendship, but the more intimate they become, the more their feelings of guilt gnaw at them. Guilt is the only thing that stands in the way of the couple's happiness, and it's often frustrating to witness their slow, overwrought progression from denial to acceptance. While this book possesses some of the qualities that Quinn's fans have come to expect—sprightly prose, feverish love scenes and well-developed secondary characters—it is weighed down by the sheer intensity of the protagonists' grief. Agent, Steve Axelrod.

      • content: When Michael's cousin dies unexpectedly, Michael is free to court his young widow, with whom he has been secretly enamored since their first meeting. Propriety and convention, of course, delay their emotional gratification until the last chapter. Simon Prebble employs a combination of subtlety and passion to bring out the best in this Romance. He drops his voice to a whisper, just before exploding into a full roar of frustration. His slightest hesitation colors a moment to its saturation point; then the acid bite of bitterness changes the mood instantly. Juicy scenes of explicit passion as performed by Prebble will leave female listeners falling into a delicious swoon. R.L.L. (c) AudioFile 2006, Portland, Maine

      • content: Sultry-voiced narrator Rosalyn Landor takes on the sixth title in the Bridgertons series, this one featuring 26-year-old Francesca Bridgerton, Countess of Kilmartin, and her late husband's first cousin, Michael Stirling. When John, Earl of Kilmartin dies suddenly, Michael, already smitten, allows himself to fall madly in love with Francesca. Landor applies her considerable talents while holding together this lively, rather steamy Regency romance. She juggles decorum and innuendo while voicing each character distinctly. Michael is portrayed as decidedly stiff and gruff--when he's not using his sexy voice to seduce Francesca. Landor voices Francesca as gracious, warm, and level-headed, in sharp contrast to the other husband-hunting girls of the Ton. Through it all, Landor's husky tones draw listeners into the passionate seduction scenes between Michael and Francesca. M.B.K. © AudioFile 2021, Portland, Maine
