Editorial Reviews

Publishers Weekly - Publisher's Weekly
Now here's a Regency romp with a writing style, voice and sense of humor perfectly suited to the era and the genre. Michaels (Illusions of Love) has created a deliciously different hero in foppish Lord Christian St. Clair, alias The Peacock, defender of the downtrodden. The dual personality ploy sounds familiar, but Michaels puts a new spin on it by having St. Clair keep to his foppish persona for most of the book, resulting in one of the most engaging heroes in a long while. His heroine, Gabrielle Laurence, is just as fully drawn. Nearly penniless, Gabby fishes the waters of the London season, hoping to hook herself a wealthy husband. Unexpectedly, St. Clair, favorite of the ton, takes her under his wing, thereby making her the darling of the social scene. The problems ensue when everyone who is anyone attempts to uncover The Peacock's true identity. Michaels dispenses with distracting love scenes and heroic derring-do in favor of fine writing and delivers what promises to be one of the best-loved books of the year. It's refreshing to find a humorous romance that stretches the accepted boundaries of the genre-here's hoping Michaels starts a new trend. (Feb.)

    Great read!

    When Christian St. Clair talks, people listen. Whether it be on fashion, people or politics, St. Clair has the ear of the ton. Only his support of the Peacock have given them pause. .... Gabrielle Laurence¿s only hope of saving her home is to marry a wealthy man. Having no dowry - her father has gambled away all their money - she has no choice but to allow Christian St. Clair¿s championing of her, raising her to the status of belle of the season. ..... In public, Christian is a dandy, one whose main interest is in fashion. Simple, but revered. In private, he is the Peacock, fighting to right wrongs against those who cannot stand up for themselves. So different are the personas that no one suspects he is the Peacock, and he intends to keep it that way. ..... Although Gabrielle appreciates what Christian¿s support has done for her, she also resents it. Resents him. She knows that one word from him can destroy her chances of a good match. As such, she forms a plan that will allow her to remain in society¿s good graces while removing the need to be pleasant to Christian. She will unmask the Peacock. ..... As Christian fights to keep his identity a secret and Gabrielle is intent on discovering the identity of the Peacock, they find that it is a fine line between love and hate. Will it be too late for them when Gabrielle, unable to ascertain with any certainty who the Peacock really is, sets in motion her plan to bring Christian down, revealing him as the Peacock? ..... Kasey Michaels has a knack for writing characters that leap from the page and into your heart. This re-release of The Secrets of the Heart is a perfect example of why, when Kasey Michaels writes, people read.

    Please learn the difference ---

    between a REVIEW and a SYNOPSIS! Don't appreciate having the entire plot laid out before me when I read a review before buying a book--If you want to write this much, go write your own book- What you're doing can hurt sales for this excellent and well established author
