I don’t often listen to Regency Romances, so this is a review taking the story on its own merits, rather than compared with a genre.

It was an enjoyable steamy romance with plenty of emotional turmoil, anger, revenge and misunderstandings, all set in Jamaica.

It was beautifully read, the narrator moving through the story and the tangled emotions with a very listenable clarity and ease. She made the interior world of the characters in the story come alive vividly.

The lead, Nerissa, is an independent-minded woman pushing against the expectations of the day, and I particularly liked, again greatly helped by the narrator’s performance, the sense of authenticity in that characterisation.

If you’re looking for escapist fun, angst and passion set against a beautiful backdrop, then I fully recommend this audiobook!
