Prolific narrator Timothy Campbell lends his talents to Caldwell’s latest historical romance (following A Duke Alone). As a second son, Nathaniel had been able to make a career on the high seas. After his brother dies, the austere ship’s captain now faces an unwanted future as the Duke of Roxburghe and husband to his late brother’s fiancée. As a British privateer, he escapes for one last mission before marriage. Tired of being overlooked by her family and the rest of the ton, Lady Cassia McQuoid embarks on an adventure before spinsterhood. Dressed as a young man, she plans to stealthily join the passengers on her brother’s ship, instead ending up as a deckhand on the wrong vessel. After a series of mishaps, Cassia’s true identity is soon discovered. With his skill with accents and realistic character voices, Campbell once more delivers an enjoyable performance, deftly capturing Cassia’s insecurities under her mask of self-assurance and Nathaniel’s exasperation at his parents’ intrusion in his love life and the headstrong stowaway.
VERDICT An enticing production sure to delight listeners. Add to collections where historical romance audiobooks are popular.
