Summary

When a powerful, decisive aristocrat undertakes to protect an absent-minded young inventress from England's enemies, he finds his orderly world turned into chaos. Merlin Lambourne's stubborn dream of flight puts her at risk, not to mention driving Ransom crazy. In spite of himself, he's oddly enchanted by this muddled miss and her eccentric ways... but can he overcome his own fears and realize her invention may be the answer to saving both their lives?

A whimsical Regency-era tale of flying machines, fancy, and love among the hedgehogs.

Laura Kinsale personally chose the exceptional talent of Nicholas Boulton to narrate Midsummer Moon as a fully voiced audiobook, creating a unique work that brings all the life and color of the original to audio.

Loved this book

I am a fan of Laura Kinsale and have read all of her books. This one is a particular favourite of mine. Quirky absent minded inventor heroine and stuffy commanding duke hero, a flying machine, a hedgehog, the admiralty, french villains, wonderful additional characters with the duke’s family and the elderly twin servants. Loved it all & go back for more when I find myself between reads.

Kinsale is great, Nicholas Boulton is a wonder!

Would you consider the audio edition of Midsummer Moon to be better than the print version?

I am in love with Nicholas Boulton's voice and he is so talented as a narrator that the book is enhanced by his work.

What did you like best about this story?

Laura Kinsale can do no wrong for me and I enjoy the subtle humour as well as her ability to bring tears to the eyes. Each book is different and so very detailed that I forgive the occasional Americanisms, as Nicholas has a way of disguising them somehow.

What about Nicholas Boulton’s performance did you like?

I have checked so many other voices out there but he is the very best there is!!!

Nicholas Boulton has the gift of making each voice, be it a man or woman, young or old, recognisable as the character in the book.

Did you have an emotional reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

It made be both laugh and cry.

Any additional comments?

I look forward to listening to "For my Lady's Heart" next and hearing Nicholas as Ruark.Then, Allegretto's story after that one. WONDERFUL!

Amusing

Another fab performance from Nicholas Boulton, characters and their personalities are brought to life by him, his voice never grates on me. Laura Kinsale provides a great vehicle to showcase his skills with her complex and comedic story lines, I find myself grinning, and even laughing out loud, this is excellent escapism

Loved it

A charming, unusual story beautifully narrated. I loved the various characters with their flaws and eccentricities.
