Jane Feather, a New York Times best-selling author, receives many awards and international acclaim for her historical romances. There are now over four million copies of her books in print. The Least Likely Bride, filled with colorful heroes and villains, is set against the tumultuous backdrop of England in 1648. Lady Olivia Granville is a lovely, headstrong scholar. Anthony Caxton is a pirate. However he, too, is keenly intelligent and independent. When they meet on the high seas, their sparks of passion are as powerful as the wind. But those sparks soon become part of a larger flame--one that burns in the service of the King. The characters of The Least Likely Bride are thoroughly entertaining, and political intrigue adds additional drama to the tempestuous affair between lady and pirate. The sparking wit and subtle humor are highlighted through Jenny Sterlin's charming narration.

"An 18-year-old girl of nobility running off to shack up with a pirate was a lot more scandalous in 1648 than it would be today. Nonetheless, young Lady Olivia Granville must follow her heart. Narrator Jenny Sterlin's performance maintains the light tone of this historical romance while bringing some depth of character to the women who shape its plot. Olivia carries an understated gravity suited to a young scholar, while Portia is a convincing lady soldier and unconventional mother. Sterlin's male characters are only slightly less realistic, but they do receive clear vocal identities, especially the smarmy politicians and a child molester. R.P.L.
