I love to write and it feels like I've been doing it forever, making up stories in my head. Reading has always been my first love and I realized at an early age that a good story stays with you for a long time. Not so much the words but the sense of time and place. With so many worlds chasing through my head, I write a lot of genres; romance, suspense, young adult and urban fantasy.


I live in Australia with my partner, my children and a house full of animals.

I have enjoyed several of Kate Harper's books, but this one was rather disappointing. The heroine, Alex, was mistreated by her mother and then is abandoned by her husband right after their wedding ceremony. Their arranged marriage is never consummated. Her husband, Seddon, lives it up in London for years having numerous affairs. After four solitary years in the country, he sends Alex a letter that truly makes her realize he has taken her for granted and that he assumes she'll be waiting when he decides to come home and take up his marriage vows to get an heir. An angry Alex impulsively heads to London with a scheme to make her husband fall in love with her newly created alter ego so she can give him a dose of his own medicine. However; this woman scorned storyline just never pans out to its potential. From the book description, I envisioned this as a merry romp with a heroine who discovered newly found self esteem, but Alex never really makes her errant and inexplicably remorseful spouse pay as he should because she doesn't really have the stomach for it. She capitulates and falls in love with her husband, and he's never really remorseful enough to be a truly worthy hero. Overall, I found I was dissatisfied with the main characters, but I did like Alex's friend Sally's side storyline.

Is it worth $.99 yes, but I couldn't stand Lord Seddom and at times I was proud of Alex and also fed up with her. I realize this time period is different from today, but she just accepted all his affairs! I liked the secondary character's, to bad I didn't care for the main chsracter's. (Ljb)

Light, fun, entertaining read. I loved how the main character, a dowdy girl married off to a stranger, grew up and spent 4 years without her new husband and decided to go into town and "teach him a lesson". She was going to show him up and prove that he was missing out by having abandoning her right after they said "I do". And what happens when we set off to do Karma's job? Yes, that is exactly what happened! The secondary characters were all interesting too and contributed to the story instead of distracting from it. Well worth picking this book up!

The editting lacks polish and historical details frustatingly botched(Vaxuhall's Parlor argh) Story is redeemed through very nice banter and secondary characters. I don't think it's a re-read but I also don't regret the $0.99 either
