Friday Favorite: Best of 2014

In a year of Friday Favorites, which one was the most popular? None other than Richard Armitage reading Georgette Heyer! This post received more views than any other post on And Then He Kissed Her in 2014. I joked at the time that, if I became famous, it would be because of Richard Armitage…and I may not have been far off 😉

Check out the original post here, which includes an excerpt of Richard reading Venitia, interviews conducted during his work on The Convenient Marriage, and links to other audio samples and projects.

John Thornton

  1. Is that a still from North & South? I highly recommend reading the book of the same title by Elizabeth Gaskill, if you haven’t, and watching Mr. Armitage’s in the BBC mini series (available on Netflix). Seriously, John Thornton will ever be above dear Mr. Darcy in my esteem, and Armitage plays the role so well.

    Ugh, good grief, that man (Thornton and Armitage. Specifically, Armitage as Thornton). All right, I’m done gushing now.


  2. Yep, the pic is from North & South. I’ve seen the mini-series and listened to the original book in audio form. Actually, now that I think about it, it’s been a while since I’ve done either–maybe it’s time to pull those out again 😀

    I think I like Thornton better than Darcy, too, and I suspect it’s because I can relate better to Thornton. He worked for what he had, and made his own way in the world. Darcy didn’t–that doesn’t make him a bad person, just harder for me to understand 🙂
