"Sexy Stephanie and sultry Simon are back in a spin-off from their popular Cynster family romances. This time, Penelope Ashford, operator of a home for foundlings in London, needs help tracking down five kidnapped orphans. Private investigator Barnaby Adair comes to the rescue, helping Penelope find the boys AND discover her libido. One can't imagine anyone other than Simon Prebble performing Laurens's bodice-ripping prose. His subtle, gravelly voice suits both the naughty bits and the action sequences. Prebble can growl with a policeman's anger and purr with a virgin's delight at her first carnal adventure. In another scene, an elderly invalid and a cowering orphan sound just as believable. Flutter on, my heart! R.L.L. (c) AudioFile 2009, Portland, Maine"
