Narrated by Alex Wyndham. I nearly managed it in two sittings, but as the second one led into the very wee hours of the morning and I had an early appointment that day, I had to stop listening with just one hour left to go. Everyone, even this young lady, knew everyone else’s past history, to include all their lovers and where they were kept.

View all 5 comments. I do however feel profound sadness to know that the other stories happen when this Duke is a very old man. I sztyr read a little bit and then just put it aside. Given the bulk of the story is set in France, many of the characters speak with French accents, which Mr Wyndham maintains consistently and which are not so thick as to be unintelligible.
Too many temper tantrums and then impulsive acts by one young man and his father. The inevitable happens, lucind it is not without consequences. But this proud nobleman also possesses a loyal, passionate heart – and it is this fierce loyalty that has brought Colonel Lord Aidan to Ringwood Manor to honor a dying soldier’s request.

As a heroine Antonia is wonderful balance of outrageous, innoccent but wordly, and delightfully smart.
Miss Mary Whitsun is far too intelligent to fall for the rakish charms of a handsome aristocrat. Antonia is only slightly less silly than Leonie from “These old shades” while Roxton is even more arrogant than Avon.
Roxton restricts himself to unhappy wives and experienced widows. Antonia may be innocent but she is not stupid. When he appeared at her door, she believed he was her gift to herself, hired for one night of passion.

In the court at Versailles, this leaves her vulnerable to the attentions of men like the slimy Comte de Salvan, who wishes to marry Antonia to his son so that the Comte can more easily make the young girl his own mistress.
