    Lady Cordelia Bannister simply cannot marry a man she has not chosen herself, no matter what her father decrees. So, pretending to be her own companion, she decides to seek out information about her intended by meeting with his secretary, a man who soon beguiles her. But Lady Cordelia doesn't know the truth: the man she can't resist is really her intended, Daniel Sinclair.

    Melinda Parmer says: "mixed feelings"
    "A lot of potential, but falls short"
    Overall

    Pros:
    - Plot (see synopsis) is clever, and does not fall into the annoying pitfalls of the "Big Misunderstanding" romance plots.
    - Interesting secondary characters, more appealing that the principles. Would've liked to see more of friends Warren & Oliver.
    - Heroine's interest in travel and writing a nice way to "show and not just tell" us that she's independent.

    Cons:
    -Hero's high voice in narration. Other men in the story have nice deep voices.
    -Longer than the plot warrants. A few of the conversations btwn heroine and hero are so similar that I thought I bumped my ipod and was playing an earlier scene.

    Bottom line: fun and worth the price...if you can handle the girlie hero voice.
