Overview

Impostress by Lisa Jackson

From New York Times bestselling author Lisa Jackson comes a powerful medieval romance in which a secret betrayal ignites unbridled passion between a lord and his lady...

Kiera of Lawenydd couldn’t believe what she’d done. Owing her sister a favor, Kiera promised to pose as Elyn on her wedding day. The ruse was to last just one night, but the following morning Elyn was nowhere to be found! Surely Kiera wouldn’t have to spend the rest of her wedded life to the baron picked out for her sister, a man to whom she could never admit the depths of her deception—even as her desire for him grew impossible to resist.
 
It was obvious to Lord Kelan of Penbrooke that something was amiss with his new bride. But despite his misgivings, he couldn’t deny that he was falling in love with the dark-haired beauty. Until he uncovered exactly what she was up to, Kelan would keep the mysterious woman by his side—all the while keeping the fierce stirrings of his heart a well-guarded secret...

Late in the thirteenth century Kiera dress up like a stable boy before sneaking out her father¿s best stallion Obsidian. However, she runs into a problem and only the quick action of her sister Elyn keeps her from being raped and probably killed. Kiera vows she owes her life to her sibling and will do anything Elyn asks to pay the debt. A few years later Elyn demands Kiera keep her vow by replacing her at her wedding ceremony although she insists Kiera can avoid bedding the groom Baron Kelan of Penbrooke. Kiera refuses, but Elyn sneaks away to spend time with her beloved. Elyn uses a veil to hide behind and goes through the ceremony. She pretends illness to stay away from the celebration, but Kelan enters her bedroom and soon caresses her into making love with him. The next day Elyn fails to show up so Kiera leaves with Kelan for his estate. As they become acquainted they fall in love, but he knows she is hiding something from him. When he learns the truth, Kiera believes Kelan will angrily boot her out and cause trouble for her father. THE IMPOSTRESS is an entertaining historical romance that at first may seem inane, but works because readers feel Kiera¿s growing anxiety over the ploy. The story line is a comedy of errors as Kiera compounds the deception though she expects the worse to happen when she also falls in love with the victim of the ruse. Fans will relish this engaging medieval romance because the cast makes it work. Harriet Klausner

This is the first book I have read from Lisa Jackson. It was OK but will not be one of my favorites. At least in this book the main characters spend time together and fall in love.
