Barbara Cartland, Queen of Romance

When she died in 2000, Dame Barbara Cartland left behind a legacy of romantic fiction unparalleled in the world of literature. Frequently pictured dressed in furs accompanied by her beloved Pekingese, she played the role of ‘Queen of Romance’ to a tee.

And now you can get many of them in audiobook format, it’s possible to experience all the heartache, passion, jealousy and romance in an even more personal and intense way!

Over 720 novels were published in her lifetime, and another 160 manuscripts were released posthumously as ‘The Pink Collection’. You can only begin to imagine the fun of recording audiobook versions of her writing!

I have been fortunate to have been asked to record twelve Barbara Cartland novels from the series published by Saga Egmont. They are:

  • The Husband Hunters
  • Love Forbidden
  • The Castle Made for Love
  • The Saint and the Sinner
  • The Impetuous Duchess
  • The Waltz of Hearts
  • The Ghost Who Fell in Love
  • The Audacious Adventuress
  • A Song of Love
  • Lovers in Lisbon
  • Love Leaves at Midnight
  • Fire on the Snow

Audible Review – Papyrus by Irene Vallejo

“Narrator Sophie Roberts’s strong, polished, highly sophisticated voice effectively conveys the aura of fashionable society but maintains a firm narrative objectivity. Droll, fascinating, full of memorable characters and anecdotes, here is a perspective on a world and time that moved from drawing-room comedy to the private dramas of war and occupation.”

“This was brilliantly brought to life by the narrator, Sophie Roberts who tackled the French & Russian names with ease. A great way to entwine two biographies in such an entertaining way.”

Audible Review – Catherine the Great & Potemkin by Simon Sebag Montefiore

“I have had the pleasure of working with Sophie for many years, and that is a testament in itself to her standing in the audiobook world. Well prepared, reliable, accurate, exceptional characterisations. The only problem with her success, is trying to hire someone who has become so indispensable…”
