Publisher's Summary

Brought to you by Penguin.

Kitty Charing's life-changing inheritance comes with a catch.

Her eccentric and childless guardian, Mr. Penicuik, is leaving Kitty all of his vast fortune - but with one condition. She must marry one of his five grand-nephews. However, Kitty's clear favourite - the rakish Jack Westruther - doesn't appear at all interested in the arrangement. To make Jack jealous, Kitty impulsively convinces his cousin, the kind-hearted and chivalrous Freddy Standen, to enter into a pretend engagement.

But the more time she spends with Freddy, the more Kitty wonders whether Jack is the right choice after all....

"One of my perennial comfort authors. Heyer's books are as incisively witty and quietly subversive as any of Jane Austen's'." (Joanne Harris)

"Fabulously witty." (Stephen Fry)

Wonderful romp, narration a little robotic

This story is just so much fun. One of the most delightful, funny and entertaining of Heyer’s stories

The narration was a little peculiar. I felt intonation was often off and the speech stilted like a robot. Certain words like Phaeton wore pronounced in an odd way. But once I got used to it I was able to allow the lively story to carry me off.

Glorious!

This is one of my favourite Heyer stories. I was anxious that it had been rerecorded but Raj Ghatak has done a fantastic job. He is comfortable with Heyer's language, understands all the nuances of the plot, has an array of wonderful accents and seems to enjoy telling the story. I'm now a fan and will watch out for things he does in the future. Raj, thank you.

Great fun.

I love this book. The Penguin recording is really great. In particular Raj Ghatak reads Dolph superbly. I was so glad there were no loud music interludes this time.

Equally as good as the previous Audible version

I love the previous version of this book, sold on Audible by Phyllida Nash, and listen to it often. I purchased this one as I love the story and wanted to compare them. This is equally as good - but in places sounds like a different story due to the new voices for much loved characters. In other recent books the comparisons have been awful - but this is a keeper!! I love Lord Dolphinton having an Irish accent in this version, which brings out a different character. Similar can be said for Freddie and Devron. Now I can pick which version I want to listen too on a wet winters night.
A pleasant listen to an excellent Georgette Heyer story.

Excellent narration.

Remarkable use of different voices to distinguish the different charcters made listening to this story a delightful experience.
