More than a Mistress

Mary Balogh, read by Rosalyn Landor. Brilliance Audio, unabridged, 10 CDs, 12 hrs., $19.99 ISBN 978-1-4558-1854-9

When his duel is interrupted by the shriek of a maidservant, Jocelyn Dudley, duke of Tresham, is shot in the leg. As punishment for her disruptive outburst, Jane Ingleby is forced to nurse the ill-tempered Tresham back to health. But impudent and strong-willed Jane is not what she claims. And after making her his mistress—and then falling in love—Dudley learns that Jane is really a missing Cornish heiress, a murderess and thief, and the talk of the town. Rosalyn Landor gives a winning performance, bringing her rich, sonorous voice to the book’s aristocratic, Regency-era characters and providing narration that is crisp, well paced, and highly entertaining. Landor produces a host of distinct and believable voices—including a nasally cockney accent for the lower classes—for the many characters that populate Balogh’s bestselling romance.
