9780099465652: Venetia



Her beauty rivaled only by her sensibility, Venetia Lanyon is nearly resigned to spinsterhood, thanks to the enormous amount of responsibility she inherited with a Yorkshire estate, an invalid brother and the lackluster efforts of two wearisomely persistent suitors. Then she meets her neighbor, the infamous Lord Damerel, a charming rake shunned by polite society—exactly the type of man that a woman of quality should stay away from.

Though his scandalous past and deepest secrets give Venetia every reason to mistrust him, a rogue always gets what he wants. Without warning, his demanding kiss threatens to become a bachelor's undoing...and a spinster's most passionate awakening.

About the Author:

Georgette Heyer's novels have charmed and delighted millions of readers for decades. English Heritage has awarded Georgette Heyer one of their prestigious Blue Plaques, designating her Wimbledon home as the residence of an important figure in British history. She was born in Wimbledon in August 1902. She wrote her first novel, The Black Moth, at the age of seventeen to amuse her convalescent brother; it was published in 1921 and became an instant success.

Heyer published 56 books over the next 53 years, until her death from lung cancer in 1974. Her last book, My Lord John, was published posthumously in 1975. A very private woman, she rarely reached out to the public to discuss her works or personal life. Her work included Regency romances, mysteries and historical fiction. Known as the Queen of Regency romance, Heyer was legendary for her research, historical accuracy and her extraordinary plots and characterizations. She was married to George Ronald Rougier, a barrister, and they had one son, Richard.

Phyllida Nash has appeared in numerous sound productions, including over fifty plays for BBC Radio 4, as well as "Book at Bedtime", two series of "Up the Garden Path", and many classic serials. Her career spans stage, television, and radio, having played parts as diverse as Portia in "Julius Caesar" and Poppy Dicky in "Rookery Nook". Phyllida also produced the book "Unexplained Laughter" as a play for BBC television, which starred Diana Rigg and Elaine Page.

From AudioFile:

Another marvelous Georgette Heyer tale of the beautiful maiden and the debauched rake. This tale of redemption and humor is told within the context of Regency England. For those who love Regency Romances, this is the author who started the genre and against whom all others pale. What a glorious choice to have San Phillips read the story. All the characters sound different through the coloring she gives each one. This wonderful recording is marred only by having to stop when changing tapes. Except for this unavoidable frustration--a marvelous performance. E.F. (c)AudioFile, Portland, Maine
