Great news: our 9.5 hour finished audiobook for the period romance – The Gentleman and The Rogue – by Bonnie Dee and Summer Devon, has been approved by ACX and can be purchased online at a number of locations.
We recorded the story over a couple of weeks at the end of April – and what a challenge for our narrator Jasper de Montfort! Keeping track of 18 different voices across an 85000 word novel was no mean feat. There was, in addition, an interesting dimension to this book – as it follows a passionate romance between a wealthy baronet and his valet. As usual, Jasper dealt with their relationship and (somewhat erotic!) interactions with compassion and tenderness and we were delighted with the end result.
This is a fast moving historical adventure set in the early 19th century. The story captures the flavour of England at a time when social divides dictated protocols and etiquette. The authors portray all the characters and action within a credible ‘upstairs-downstairs’ environment. Although a love story, The Gentleman and The Rogue is full of action and suspense as Sir Alan Watleigh and the incorrigible cockney, Jem, rescue the orphaned daughter of one of his regiment from the clutches of an evil surgeon.
