Frederica (#73 on AAR's Top 100 Romances)

An AAR Top 100 Romance originally published on July 10, 2000 We don't title our reviews here at AAR, but if we did this one would be called Georgette Heyer: Impressions of a Neophyte. Many readers grew up reading Georgette Heyer and came to love romance and Regencies in particular because of their ...

Sylvester (#100 on AAR's Top 100 Romances)

An AAR Top 100 Romance originally published on November 26, 2013 Sylvester is another of my favourite books by Georgette Heyer and one that I don’t think has been available in an unabridged version before. Naxos released an abridged recording in 2009, which was very well performed by Richard Arm ...

Slightly Wicked

Narrated by Rosalyn Landor One of the many things I love about audiobooks is that they’re a great way for me to catch up with older titles that, with the best will in the world, I’m unlikely to get around to reading for at least the next ten years or more. Another great thing is that it’s s ...

AUDIO REVIEW: Mister O

Anyone who knows me or reads my reviews regularly will know that I’m not really one for Contemporary romance. I freely admit to sneaking in the odd Harlequin Presents now and again, but I’m not into tattooed bikers, hockey players (or anything sport-related), Navy SEALs, firefighters, lawyers ...

She Tempts the Duke

Narrated by Faye Adele. There’s something about Lorraine Heath’s writing that strikes a real chord with me and pushes all the right emotional buttons; so much so that’s she’s now on my auto-buy list. Given that I am someone who likes listening to audio versions of books I’ve enjoyed, I ...

The Mésalliance

Narrated by Alex Wyndham Originally published in 1990, The Mésalliance is the second book in Stella Riley’s series of Georgian romances, which began with The Parfit Knight and continues with The Player . Substantially revised since first publication, the book is a superb compromised-into-marri ...

Indiscreet

Narrated by Rosalyn Landor I’ve been delighted to see a number of Mary Balogh’s older titles are at last being released in audiobook format, and have eagerly pounced on each one as soon as they have been released. The most recent to appear is Indiscreet, which was originally published in 1 ...

Be Frank With Me

I first took note this début novel by Julia Claiborne Johnson after reading Joshilyn Jackson’s very positive review of the story. Since Ms. Jackson is an author whose work I greatly admire, I decided to pick Ms. Johnson's book up for review. Be Frank With Me is a delightfully charming story, peop ...
