In this tantalizing story, Kate Reading's evocative narration captures the drama and contrasts of common life and high society in 1870s London. When feisty tavern owner Gillian Truelove saves the life of the Duke of Thornley, called Thorn, in the dangerous district of Whitechapel, their lives become inextricably linked. Reading's spirited portrayal of Truelove conveys her fierce independence but also her private, more feminine, side, which is aroused by Thorn's attentions. Reading fans the increasing attraction between the two with seductive tones, dramatic pacing, and crisp articulation that adds spice to the love scenes. Reading's pitch variations and assortment of English accents bring out the story's wide range of characters and the distinctions between the social classes. A scintillating listen. M.F.
