The Lover Or The Fool…

Playing at disguises with her betrothed, Lady Katherine Fitzhugh knew not which role she had embraced, for pretending to be her cousin in order to discover the true nature of the stranger she was bound to by royal decree was proving to be much more complicated than she had planned!

Only a fool entered marriage blindly, and Sir Brandon Cavendish was no one's fool. Yet disguised as his own best friend, he was now faced with a ticklish dilemma. For it was fast becoming clear that the woman he truly desired was not his simpering intended, but her strong-willed and passionate cousin!

Editorial Reviews

Publishers Weekly - Publisher's Weekly
Phillips (Silent Night) is a new star on the historical romance horizon: she's literate, witty and tells a good story. As the title suggests, her inspiration's clearly Shakespearean, with a fast-paced plot that involves multiple exchanges of identity, disguises and a lively war between the sexes. Wealthy widow Lady Katherine Fitzhugh changes identities with her shy cousin Miranda, in order to better investigate Sir Brandon Cavendish, the mystery man King Henry VIII has chosen for her husband. Unbeknownst to Kat, however, handsome Sir Brandon, worried that his betrothed is an elderly witch who's already dispatched two husbands, has exchanged identities with his best friend, John Stafford, known at Henry's court as Jack of Hearts. Complicating what is already tangled is Kat's nephew and heir, a nasty piece of work who's determined to stop this wedding at all costs. Kat's really the focus here: a sanguine, determined survivor of two unfortunate marriages, she may occasionally be exasperated but isn't easily discouraged. The dialogue is fully and funnily Shakespearean, and while it may take a few pages to assimilate, it's a hoot. To tell more would spoil this wonderfully written comedy. (June)
