Beverley A. Crick returns to narrate Bateman’s second book in the “Ruthless Rivals” series (following A Reckless Match). Continuing the enemies-to-lovers theme of the first book is a historical romance about another set of Davies and Montgomery siblings. Wild and impetuous, Carys Davies’s outlandish outfits and demeanor are just short of scandalous and serve to hide her true scandal. Tristan Montgomery, her childhood nemesis—son of her family’s greatest rivals and her sister-in-law’s brother—uncovers the truth, which he first sees as confirmation of her hoyden ways. Before long, the duo strike a deal that leads to them discovering their true feelings toward each other. Crick’s significant experience narrating historical romance audiobooks is evident. Her abilities to differentiate among characters using a variety of voices and accents keeps listeners engaged in the story. With her talents, Crick ensures that Carys’s Welsh origins are unmistakable. Capturing the couple’s emotions, she further draws listeners into their tale. The choice of singing during two musical scenes adds another layer of enjoyment.
VERDICT A delightfully entertaining production, which is sure to delight fans of historical romance audiobooks.
