One Kiss From You - Switching Places, Bk 2 Author:Christina Dodd A bold woman known as the "duchess of Magnus" was wagered -- and won -- in a card game. But the woman who arrived was her shy, quiet cousin Eleanor. — Eleanor de Lacy must have been mad to agree to exchange identities with her stronger-willed cousin. She would never convince Remington Knight of the folly of this union -- especially sinc... more »e the man seemed so determined for it to take place. Worse still, she finds Remington dazzlingly attractive -- and she's charmed by his attempts to seduce her, even though he believes she is already his. But if he ever learns of Eleanor's deception, this daring rogue will wreak havoc…upon her reputation and her heart.
Remington had expected a haughty, unbending aristocrat who would ensure his entrance into good society. But this "duchess" is a most pleasant surprise -- modest, warm-hearted, endearingly awkward, and a delight to the eye. In short, she is exactly the sort of bride Remington could fall passionately, completely in love with…if he weren't so intent on his revenge.« less
I thought this book, had suspense as well as romance. I loved the main characters, chemistry that they had with each other. The writer protrayed to murder mystery part of the story very well. It kept you guessing almost till the end on who the actual murderer was.
Enjoyable but not trribly memborable. I read this a couple weeks ago and can't remember enough of the story to write a detailed review. What I do remember is that Remington was very loveable and Ealeanor's emergence as an independent woman was well written and satisfying.
Loved the story line. While highly improbable that Remington would marry the wrong girl since all reports were contradictory of what he expected, Eleanor became the "strong woman" and stood up for what she wanted. Good historical romance!
