Publisher's Summary

The excesses of the young Marquis of Vidal are even wilder than his father's before him. Not for nothing is the reckless duellist and gamester called "the Devil's Cub". But when he is forced to leave the country, Mary Challoner discovers his fiendish plan to abduct her sister. Any only by daring to impersonate her can Mary save her sibling from certain ruin.

G. Heyer: The Original Regency Romance Author

Georgette Heyer was the original Regency romance author. This book was written in 1932 and, when you listen to it, you will know that this is not a 21st century woman plunked down in the late 1700s. Ms. Heyer did a great deal of research on the clothing, vehicles, food, dialogue, manners and language of the time, so her romances are true period pieces.

The dialogue is witty, our heroine spirited, our hero an over-indulged but handsome marquis, and the plot is silly beyond belief and altogether delightful.

I suggest listening to 'These Old Shades' first to find out about the adventures of the marquis' parents.

Note: if you are a strong feminist you either need to compartmentalize, taking into account not only when the book was set but also when it was written (almost 100 years ago) or don't bother reading it. There are some casual lines about women 'of a certain class' that will jar unpleasantly.

The narrator does a terrific job with the different voices and the British and French accents.

Really bad voices

Terrible french accents, female voices were vile. I couldn't get beyond a couple of chapters.
