Publisher's Summary

After inheriting his title from his brother, the margrave has two weeks to find a noble bride. What will happen when he learns he has fallen for a lovely servant girl in disguise?

The Margrave of Thornbeck has to find a bride - fast. He invites 10 noble-born ladies who meet the king's approval to be his guests at Thornbeck Castle for two weeks - a time to test these ladies and reveal their true characters.

Avelina has only two instructions: keep her true identity a secret and make sure the margrave doesn't select her as his bride. Since the latter seems unlikely, she concentrates on not getting caught. No one must know she is merely a maidservant sent by the Earl of Plimmwald to stand in for his daughter, Dorothea.

Despite Avelina's best attempts at diverting attention from herself, the margrave has taken notice. And try as she might, she can't deny her own growing feelings. But something else is afoot in the castle. Something sinister that could have far worse - far deadlier - consequences.

    "Very entertaining and pleasant story"

    This is a light ckean romance. It was funny and even suspenseful in part. Good read.

    "Juvenile story"

    The story was weak, the dialogue uninspiring, and the narration leaden. Not much going for this one!!

    Story
    "One of her better books"
    Would you listen to The Beautiful Pretender again? Why?

    Those familiar with this author will know she has written several Fairy-Tale retellings. This was one of the better ones. I have the paperback and I would consider reading again.


    Have you listened to any of Jude Mason’s other performances? How does this one compare?

    I have heard one or two other books by this narrator, and she is usually good.
