Book Description

25 Feb 2013 Naxos Classic Fiction
Fiery, strong-willed Deb Grantham, who runs a gaming house with her aunt, is hardly the perfect wife for the young and naïve Lord Mablethorpe. His lordship's family are scandalised that he proposes to marry one of faro's daughters', and his cousin the proud, wealthy Max Ravenscar decides to take the matter in hand. Ravenscar always gets his way, but as they lock horns, he and Miss Grantham become increasingly drawn to each other. Amidst all the misunderstandings and entanglements, has Ravenscar finally met his match?

More About the Author

Author of over fifty books, Georgette Heyer is the best-known and best-loved of all historical novelists, making the Regency period her own. Her first novel, The Black Moth, published in 1921, was written at the age of fifteen to amuse her convalescent brother; her last was My Lord John. Famous for her historical novels, she also wrote twelve highly acclaimed mystery novels. Georgette Heyer died in 1974 at the age of seventy-one.

Product Description


Georgette Heyer's novels are second to none in recreating Regency times, and most of them are available on audio. The latest of Naxos's lively abridged versions to be released is Faro's Daughter, another tale of a poor but feisty girl using her mind as well as her looks to make good. From the instant that the wealthy and noble Max Ravenscar frowns at the news that his naive young cousin is in love with a gamester's daughter, we can guess the outcome, but the journey, voiced with bounce and bonhomie by Laura Paton, is a delight. --Christina Hardyment, The Times

2.0 out of 5 stars poor reading 25 Mar 2013
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
this is read with apparent lack of understanding. one character is Irish but this is ignored making a near nonsence of what he's saying. very disappointing compared to previous recordings in this series.

2.0 out of 5 stars Hammy reading 4 Dec 2013
Format:Audio CD
I was so happy to see this title amongst the recent Naxos audiobook recordings of Georgette Heyer's books, as I haven't seen another reading of it anywhere. However, the narrator was badly cast. Her reading is slow-paced with strange silences as she appears to be trying to alter her voice for her characters and her intonation is hammy and irritating. It feels quite amateurish, which I'm sure Naxos wasn't intending, having commissioned excellent readings by Richard Armitage and Clare Wille. (The recent unabridged version of Sylvester by Nicholas Rowe, while far more professionally delivered, also lacks sparkle and wit and sympathy with the story and characters - he sounds bored and I found myself constantly drifting off, despite being riveted by a previous unabridged recording, now forced out of print by the new version). I'm not sure I'll be able to listen to the full recording of Faro's Daughter as the clumsy reading is fast putting me off what was a previous favourite. What a pity Naxos didn't find readers more in tune with Heyer's light but immensely fun novels for these two readings.
