Summary

Brought to you by Penguin.

A witty and enthralling Regency romance by one of the best-known and most beloved historical novelists.

The legend of the Headless Horseman and a proposed marriage de convenance both have their impact on the mystery of a golden talisman ring and Lord Lavenham's young heir, Ludovic. Neither Sir Tristram Shield nor Eustacie, his young French cousin, shares the slightest inclination to marry one another, yet it is Lord Lavenham's dying wish. For there is no one else to provide for the old man's granddaughter while Ludovic remains a fugitive from justice....

Yet again, Georgette Heyer shows the qualities that made her one of the most successful and best-loved romantic novelists of her age, and why her popularity endures to this day.

Another good version

One of my favourite Heyer romances. My previous recording was by Phylida Nash and is excellent.
I heard the sample of this one and decided I wanted to hear it read by a man. it does not disappoint. He has a nice deep voice that suits Sir Tristan Shield perfectly. The female voices also pass the test. I must admit that I prefer Phylida Nash voices for the various other characters in the book, but these are perfectly acceptable.
Enjoy a good listen.

An amusing adventure

I love Georgette Heyer’s historical romances and this one is no exception. A truly amusing adventure story with marvellous characters.
The narration by Joe Jameson was superb and really brought the story to life. His characterisations were spot on especially his portrayal of Eustacie. A joy to listen to.

Charming

We all know the end of all her writings, but a cheerful relaxing listen, to escape into non-reality but into fantasy .

My New Favourite Narrator

Joe Jameson brings the characters to life. A perfect combination of best author and best narrator in one.
