Publisher's Summary

The first book in Amanda Scott’s acclaimed Dangerous series journeys from the battlefields of Waterloo to the ballrooms and boudoirs of London, where a deadly deception unfolds....

Engaged by proxy to a man she’s never met, Lady Daintry Tarrant is dismayed when the war hero returns, introducing himself as her fiancé, Lord Penthorpe. She cherishes her independence and has turned away many suitors, but this one she must marry. Penthorpe is completely captivated by Lady Daintry - but he’s not who he claims to be.

Penthorpe and Lord Gideon Deverill fought together at the battle of Waterloo, and when Penthorpe fell, Gideon assumed his identity in order to see the beautiful Lady Daintry. Gideon knows there’s bad blood between Lady Daintry’s family and his own, but he’s smitten with Daintry and determined to reunite the bitterly feuding clans. When a ghost from Gideon’s past appears, he could lose everything - including Daintry’s love.

    Story
    "Heroine is too Shrewish"
    What could have made this a 4 or 5-star listening experience for you?

    Less emphasis on women's rights or at least giving them female characters a little feeling. Instead, they are mad at every man they meet - before the guy even opens his mouth.


    What was the most interesting aspect of this story? The least interesting?

    The beginning where the hero takes the place of his dead friend when he returns to England from the Battle of Waterloo was the most interesting. The least interesting to me was the mystery of the feud going on between the two families.


    Did Cat Gould do a good job differentiating all the characters? How?

    Yes, but could have been a bit better. Bet she was as board as I was reading some of the drivel that came out of the female voices.


    If you could play editor, what scene or scenes would you have cut from Dangerous Illusions?

    I would have gotten rid of the silly mystery all together and toned down the heroine's ferocity.


    Any additional comments?

    After all this, I'm tempted to listen to Book 2 of this series as chapter 1 was tacked onto the end of this book and sounded interesting. Hopefully, the author was just trying to find her way with book 1 and book 2 will be better. Though Cat Gould's narration is different, I enjoy her portrayals if the book is half-way good.

    "Loved it"

    Great first book to this series. My only complaint is that it ended to abruptly without tying up the loose ends to the stories. The narrator could have been better, she made all the men sound like villains.
