Editorial Reviews

Publishers Weekly
Heino (Mistress by Mistake) builds this playfully melodramatic and unquestionably giggleworthy Regency romance out of disguises, secrets, and complicated relationships. Actress Julia St. Clement was involved with Lord Anthony Rastmoor until he gambled her away to his odious cousin Cedric Fitzgelder. Furious and desperate, Julia disguised herself as a man and fled. While traveling with an ersatz wife some years later, Julia learns that Cedric plans to murder Anthony. When she finds her old lover and tries to warn him, he recognizes the pretty face under the fake mustache. Julia and Anthony renew a passionate but distrustful romance while she poses publicly as his male traveling companion and they unravel the secrets surrounding Anthony's family and associates. The hilariously over-the-top, twist-after-twist storytelling is reminiscent of Gilbert & Sullivan, and Heino easily capitalizes on the endless comic potential of gender and mistaken identity. (Aug.)

    This enjoyable Regency romance is a fun Comedy of Errors

    Actress Julia St. Clement was Lord Anthony Rastmoor's mistress until he lost her gambling with his nasty cousin Cedric Fitzgelder. Outraged to be a stake in a game of chance and fearing the despicable Cedric, Julia flees disguised as Mr. Alexander Clemmons learning to eat soup through a moustache

    Julia continues to travel as a male, but accompanied by a "wife" Sophie, learns that Cedric plans to kill Anthony. Still garbed as a male, she warns her former lover who recognizes her in spite of her clothing, wife and mustache. As they begin a second tryst with her seen as his male companion in public, they begin to fall in love again, but she no longer trusts her heart or him with her heart. Meanwhile the duet begins to investigate the secrets of their families espically after her wife mysteriously vanishes.

    This enjoyable Regency romance is a fun Comedy of Errors as Julia keeps up her masquerade to fool the foul odious Fitzgelder. Although her starting a second time with someone who gambled her away displays inanity, love or inane love depending on your perspective, readers will relish the courageous Mr. Clemmons as a Damsel in Disguise.

    Funny, Sexy Regency Romp

    Since the plot has already been explained, I'll just say how much I enjoyed this Regency romance. It was filled with wonderful characters, funny situations, and great dialogue. I relished the romance and loved the love scenes. I can't wait for the next Susan Gee Heino book: Temptress in Training!
