December is filled with romance and adventure as we bring you three exciting new titles.
After the success of The Three Musketeers, the ever-popular Bill Homewood returns with a captivating recording of another Dumas classic: The Man in the Iron Mask. Dumas pulls out all the stops in this swashbuckling adventure as he brings the story of the heroic musketeers – Aramis, Athos, Porthos and d’Artagnan – to a breathtaking finale.
Perhaps her most cherished novel, Arabella is the perfect culmination of our recent Georgette Heyer series. The story, read by fan-favourite Phyllida Nash, follows the young Arabella as she attempts to ensnare a wealthy husband: the much-hunted Mr Beaumaris. Under the guise of a rich heiress she soon wins his affections. But what will he make of her deceitful charade?
To mark the recent end of another extraordinary unabridged series – Edward Gibbon’s The Decline and Fall of the Roman Empire – we release the historian’s absorbing autobiography, Memoirs of My Life. A candid and compelling insight, Memoirs takes us from Gibbon’s birth to his education at Oxford, then to his time in Switzerland with Voltaire before his travels to Rome, where he conceived of his epic history.
