This is one of my all time favorites from this author. The heroine will keep you laughing out loud through out, a hero who will tug at your heart strings, this story even has a cute dog.... romance filled with laughter, passion, and HEA...what else can you ask for...Highly recommend this one. Grade A+
This romance to me was more of a comedy of errors. It actually had me laughing in some parts and I mean that in a good way. The vivacious, duplicitous heroine and the serious, quiet hero are the epitome of opposites attract. I didn't feel that I knew exactly why these two fell in love, and the heroine's crime of impersonation was a little too easily resolved and forgiven, but this was still a good read.
A schemer by necessity, Letty Potts Has gotten into a few fixes in her 25 years, but she faces the worst one of all when trying to go straight. Narrowly escaping the wrath of her partner in crime, she finds herself with nothing but the gown she's wearing and a train ticket belonging to another women. Posing as wedding planner "Lady Agatha," Letty travels to a backwater town to arrange the nuptials of a young society bride. Amid the dizzying whirl of preparations, no one suspects her charade--except Sir Elliot March. The sensual aristocrat had foresworn love, but Letty reawakens his passion--leading him into scandal.
Victorian England - a glittering world of titled society and scandalous secrets - an enchanting story of a woman who lives by her wits and who commits the most startling indiscretion of all: She falls in love
Reviewer: Chris Cummings (OH) -
A saucy heroine, a mouthwatering hero, a charming community, fun and wit and passion, this one has it all. Letty and Elliot are both immediately likable and delightfully original. Letty, raised as music hall performer, seeks to escape her increasingly nefarious boyfriend and finds a ticket to a tiny town called Little Bidewell, where she is mistaken for the eccentric Lady Agatha, duke's daughter-cum-wedding planner extraordinaire. Letty, whose luck had just run out, can't resist such an Opportunity and gets swept up in what begins as a rather benign deception. Soon, however, she becomes entangled in the lives of the charming Little Bidewell residents, including the sexy, chivalrous Sir Elliot.
Elliot is neither rogue nor rake, but a true gentleman; however, don't be put off if you thought only bad boys could be sexy! He's one of Brockwell's most irresistable creations!
The story is chock full of Brockway's delightfully witty dialogue, and there are many humorous moments, but what begins as an undeniable, potent attraction between Letty and Elliot becomes a heart-wrenching and most romantic unrequited (almost) love.
If you're open to something a little different but still demand great, passionate romance, try this one! I doubt you'll be disappointed!
