Overview

For years, Michael Balcarris has loved Emily Dymoke from afar. However, because of his secret profession, he is unable to admit his feelings for her and show his true self. Instead, he must continue to present himself as a frivolous fop to both London society and the woman of his dreams. As a young girl, Emily had a private crush on Michael, who had been her brother Colin's handsome and dashing friend. Yet upon Michael's return to London after attending university, she is unable to abide his insufferable presence. To make matters worse, he insists on being everywhere she is - including her family's country home when they go on summer holiday. During their time in the countryside, however, Emily starts to see a new side of Michael. She also has to fight her growing attraction to him, leaving her to wonder how she could be falling in love with a man she can barely tolerate.

    A Clever Love Story

    Kathleen Fuller created some endearing characters, a little mystery, and a sweet love story in her newest book, A Clever Disguise. If you are a fan of historical romances and you'd love an afternoon getaway, this book is for you.

    Emily Dymoke believes she lives in the shadows of her beautiful sister, Diana. Outspoken, independent Emily has a hard time fitting into the societal rules of the London ton. Michael Balcarris, close friend of Emily's brother Colin, is secretly in love with her. He has been for years. However, his profession prevents him from developing long term relationships. He must live the life of an insufferable bore and cad to cover his true identity and work. When his mother decides to summer with Emily's family in the country, Michael joins them. Much to Emily's dismay, his presence both annoys and attracts her. When a handsome man named Charles Pembroke worms his way into Emily's affections, Michael must contain his jealousy and work to expose Pembroke for the fraud he is. Can true love find its way through disguises and secrecies?

    Kathleen wrote a lovely story of romance, history, and added some intrigue to make a great little book. I highly recommend you toss this book in your overnight bag for your weekend getaway. It will be an easy, pleasurable read. You'll want to read more about the lives of Michael and Emily.
