I had never heard of this author and was very pleasantly suprised at how good this book was. She delivered very believeable and compelling characters and a faily fast paced story. Great read!

Less depressing/sad then some of Edith Layton's books - a more upbeat romance despite the hardened criminals and murders. Had suspense but not as much romance - did not see the attraction between the heroine/hero. A quick read with few plot turns. Interesting secret identity theme, but this may have interfered too much with development of the romance plot.

The book was entertaining enough, but I didn't like the heroine's waffling back and forth. That became a little boring.

I loved the book and the twist at the end.

After fifteen years in cruel exile, Christian has finally returned to England to claim his rightful title. The new Earl of Egremont was a mere child when he was banished. Lovely and charming Julianne Lowell, who knew him then, must now determine if this suave and handsome mystery man is who he claims to be.

But why would she not remember those eyes that sparkle like flawless gems? Christian is like no man she has ever met -- elegant and well-bred, but secretive and quite possibly dangerous, and seething with a sensual fire that steals her breath away. To trust this dashing stranger could place Julianne in grave peril if he is, in fact, playing a game of deception. But with her heart leaping madly at his slightest touch, how can she deny Christian the love and passion they both fervently desire
