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.

The Gentleman And The Rogue – Recording The Audiobook Right Now

The Gentleman and The RogueWe are in the process of recording an historical romance with a twist!  The Gentleman and The Rogue by Bonnie Dee and Summer Devon is period erotic romance and our first m/m gay audiobook.

With over 670 ratings on Goodreads and 5 star ratings on Amazon we knew we were in for an interesting story and we were not disappointed. It is a cracking mystery adventure with an evil villain, a noble quest, forbidden love, passion and romance all developed in a fast moving plot.

The recording has been a challenge as the authors requested that the Gentleman should have an upper class accent and the Rogue, as a young cockney sparrow should sound as if he comes from a lower class London background.  This seemed very reasonable and the authors loved the audition we sent them.

When we read through the book before starting the recording we then discovered that there are actually 15 other characters plus the narrator  – a young girl, servants, footmen, landlords, a doctor and a magistrate to name a few!  We have had a lot of fun placing all their accents and characters – and even more fun keeping track of them so that when they appear at different times in the book they are consistent.  All in a day’s work for narrators and editors!

The main audio is now almost complete.  Then it’s over to the editor for processing and checking.  This audiobook will probably last over 9 hours when it’s complete so it takes many hours of painstaking work to edit it all together, get rid of any strange noises (tummy rumbles before lunch and ‘oinks’ after!) as well as final polishing to blend it all together.
