This was a decent read with an interesting premise (Duke masquerading as a horse breeder). Had me cracking a smile at times. But I really think the book could have been much better had the author expanded upon what should have been pivotal and potentially very emotional scenes. Doing so could have added so much dimension to the characters. Instead, the author glossed and, at times, even skipped these potential scenes in favor of going right to them arguing--which they do for the majority of the book. This is endearing at first, but quickly becomes repetitive.
This book had potential to be more, but it's not a bad book to pick up to pass the time. Just don't expect it to be very memorial.
The most desirable beauty in the land, wildly unpredictable Megan Penworthy has set her amorous sights on Ambrose St. James, Duke of Wrothston-a man she has never met but has every intention of marrying. No other suitor will satisfy her-especially not the common, if uncommonly handsome, horse breeder, Devlin Jefferys.
Posing as lowborn Jefferys to escape a potentially fatal confrontation, Ambrose is enthralled and infuriated by the brazen, duke-hunting redhead. Without revealing his true identity, the notorious rogue vows to foil Megan's plans to wed the man of her dreams-never imagining the enchanting scheme would turn out to be the only woman he would ever dream of marrying.
I rather enjoyed this book. The play with the two main characters was fun and interesting. He was in disguise as a horse trainer (really a duke in hiding) and she was convinced that she was going to marry the very same duke without meeting him first. Once they get married the story dragged a little bit but from the ball scenes to the ending picked right back up.
