*The beginning of this book was excellent, the middle slow and confusing, the end too jumbled.. The hero believed everyone who said anything bad about the heroine even when he knew they were liars and the heroine has got to be the stupidest person in literature as she trusted the wrong person again and again.. I have read other books by this author and loved them but I cannot recommend this book to anyone.. Two stars because the beginning was so very well done..

It took a long time to get to the plot. The main character was way too naive and nice, no one is like that. Then the book had so many misunderstandings I had to keet puting it down. It took me a month to finish this book. The ending was rushed and way to simple. But it wasn't too bad for a free book.

This was not a great read for me. Rose seemed too naïve for her age, and it was rather confusing that someone can be duped so many times.

Enjoyed Rose and Rampton's story. Lots of revenge, suspense, and passion (not too hot and detailed). When you mix them all together, characters begin to question and doubt everything which just adds another element to the story all together. Well done 644 page read.

Great historical romance.  Rose's sister-in-law Helena owes a gambling debt that was transferred over to Lord Rampton. Rose's brother, Charles and his wife Helena have a dinner meeting with Lord Rampton. On the night they are to dine with Lord Rampton, Helena is basically comatose due to drinking laudumn and they are unable to wake her up. So Rose suuggests pretending to be Helena for only for one night,  or so they think. Rose's brother Charles is against the idea, but finally agrees for Rose to pretend to be Helena. Lord Rampton is considered to be one of the most sought after bachelors. Lord Rampton has one rule, he only dates married women. Lord Rampton is attracted to Rose, whom he assumes is Helena... a married  woman. Helena and her antics, was tiresome but overall good story. (appx. 650 pgs) *vrnb*
