The Convenient Marriage (Abridged Fiction) (Naxos Classic Fiction)
Georgette Heyer's writing is sometimes a delight and sometimes a little overwhelming since her attention to detail (both with language and customs of the Regency period) forces your brain to work a little harder to keep up. Horatia, the youngest sister of an impoverished but titled family, decides to offer herself in marriage to Lord Rule, in place of her older, more comely sister who is already in love with someone else. He s chosen Horatia's family for their connections rather than love or money, and agrees with Horatia's deal even though she is just 17 and has a noticeable stammer. Lord Rule and Horatio reach an agreement that neither will interfere in the other s life but when Horatia befriends Rule's enemy, Lord Lethbridge, the game begins. The Convenient Marriage actually steps over some lines that many of today's romance readers draw in the proverbial sand. For instance, Rule has a mistress he does not give up at marriage. And hoydenish, outrageous Horatia steps over the boundaries set for young women of the ton a number of times something I found amusing at first. That amusement faded as the story unfolded and I found myself becoming more annoyed by her shenanigans. Lord and Lady Rule demonstrate with a passionate kiss at the end that all's well that ends well. Don t expect any more passion than that from Heyer, however. Although it was an abridged version, I suspect that Lady Rule remained untouched until after the story ended with that kiss. Richard Armitage is a wonderful, deep-voiced narrator who is perfectly matched to Heyer's prose and his heroes are truly to-die-for, baritone, and hunky sounding. He performs a variety of women's voices, some stretching the limits of his voice, and in The Convenient Marriage, he treats us with a very entertaining 'macaroni' falsetto voice complete with lisp. Not having read the full story, I can't say whether that is implied or actually written into the character, but let's just say this particular dandy is voiced as someone who does not chase after women. Ever. Armitage did a credible stammer for Horatia all the way through and wasn't that annoying! All in all, Richard Armitage provides a top-notch narration that makes The Convenient Marriage an above average listen for me. --All About Romance
