Richard Armitage


When Sylvester, the Duke of Salford, first meets Phoebe Marlow, he finds her dull and insipid. She finds him insufferably arrogant. But when a series of unforeseen events leads them to be stranded together in a lonely country inn, they are both forced to reassess their hastily formed opinions, and begin a new-found liking and respect for each other. Sylvester calls to mind the satirical genius of a Jane Austen novel and is adored for its wit and a fast-paced plot that ranges across a myriad of settings.




Swooning over Sylvester by Chloé Harmsworth. A review of the audiobook on the Naxos Audiobooks website. '...not only is he skilled at playing both charming and dastardly roles – he also has a rich, alluring voice which is very welcome on Naxos AudioBooks!'


Review on by Jean Palmer. 'British actor Richard Armitage makes this exceptionally fun to listen to. The only drawback is that listeners will be disappointed that he didn't read the full-length version.'
