About the Author
These valiant attempts to correct the existence of D.L. were, unfortunately, unsuccessful and she now resides in New Jersey, US., in a box with her toys, two human beings and three cats.

Warning: This will keep you glued until you are finished! Wondefully written with believable characters and plot. No other historical romance has ever made me laugh so hard and also made me hug my pillow and sigh like lovesick teenager. Btw, the book is not 800 pages, just around 300.
Touching, witty, sly and dry by turns, this book is a BIG regency with flair. Not only that, but it's well edited, (no distracting typos, bad grammar or formatting) and period correct. The author clearly researched the Regency era and it shows. While frequently tongue in cheek, it also covers some heavier topics with sensitivity and honesty. Beyond the fact that it is a well crafted book; the characters, the dialogue between them and scenarios they face came vividly to life in my imagination. I found myself firmly planted in their universe hissing at the villains and laughing with the Heroine (or was that Hero?) as I turned pages madly to see what came next. Another thing I found delightful was the depiction of more of the masculine side of the times. So often in Regency romances all we hear about is the furbelows, fancies and foibles of the feminine characters. The men are included to beef up the feminine story line. Not in this book. The men get their due - in thought, dress and deeds! A Regency romance, yes, but MORE than the usual. Meaty, tastefully done, with humor, passion, thought and, of course, a romance that left me itching to see it reach fulfillment. I was sorry to see it end and expect I'll be buying the next book by D. L. Carter as soon as I can get my hands on it! .............................. Since the pen name function here at B&N seems to be out of order, I leave you, Respectfully, Shari Sanford PBX Belmar
I really enjoyed the main character and all the witty comments. All characters were good and I loved the story. Dare I say it, hoping for a sequel : )
Great fun! A clever story which includes the realities of life for women at this time. Very believable characters with great ingenuity for survival.
800 pages and delighful story , i love the stories where women dress as men and then the man they fall in love with discovers they are female
