Richard Armitage Reads Georgette Heyer

Armitage and Heyer in one package is like eating too many sweets. Oh, the joy! His sexy voice and various character roles couched in excellent stage diction make Heyer's words come alive. Her humor carries well, as well as the subtle witty repartee between the protagonists.

Armitage has read three of Heyer's works: Venetia, Sylvester, and Convenient Marriage. If it has to be just one, oh, let it be Venetia. Damerel and Venetia are heartstoppingly lovely.
