Publisher's Summary

An outcast fighting for her future....

Thea Knight loves a spot of mischief. She especially loves her current mischief: masquerading as her sister, while finalizing her scheme to expose the dastardly knaves whose lies ruined her life.  

Then big, bad-tempered Lord Luxborough upends her game by maneuvering her into marriage. But it's her sister’s name on the license, so the marriage won’t be valid. Thea’s idea? Keep pretending to be her sister until she can run away. 

A recluse haunted by his past....

Rafe Landcross, Earl of Luxborough, has no love for mischief. Or marriage. Or people, for that matter. The last thing he wants is a wife - but if he marries, he’ll receive a large sum of much-needed money. 

Then he learns that Thea Knight is using a false name. Rafe’s idea? Pretend he doesn’t know her true identity, marry her, and send her packing once the money is his. 

A compelling attraction that changes their lives

But as passion ignites and secrets emerge, the mutual deception turns tricky fast. Rafe and Thea face irresistible temptations, unsettling revelations, and a countdown to the day when Thea must leave....

Fun, tender, and steamy, this Gothic-flavored historical romance tells of a fake marriage between a grumpy, scarred hero and a trickster heroine who reminds him how to play.

A little boring and not enough romance

I really loved the first book but this one did not hold my attention or interest as the first one. Not enough romance and too many side plots such as the medicine developing. part. The pacing was odd at times and the overall plot was a little farfetched. But she is a talented writer and would not hesitate to read her next work.

Absolute treat!

The best of romances are those with characters you come to love with unique personalities, and then lots and lots of both fun and/or heart-touching interaction and repartee. It’s best when conversations flow normally giving out information, without the usual inner monologues to explain everything basically twice. Mia Vince is rather new to me but I love her stories and her writing.

A slow burn romance

If you’re looking for a lot of steamy sex, this book is not it. However if you’re looking for a laughing out loud funny type of book, this is the one. This book is a slow burn romance. I loved it! Kate Reading is just the best. She makes the characters come alive

Boring

A sham marriage between a woman and an Earl whose face is scarred from a jaguar attack. She is on a mission to get revenge on two men who played a foul trick on her that ruined her in the ton and made her family toss her out. I found this book to be downright tedious. I enjoyed the first book in the series, but this one was a dud. It was very confusing. From the very beginning I felt as if I had been dropped into an ongoing story and it did not make sense. The author is clever with dialog but the sequencing of the book is awful, in my opinion, and the pace is so slow I kept falling asleep. I don't know if this ended well or not because i had to stop listening due to extreme boredom.

Too much

Kate Reading is the only reason I finished the book and with that I fast forward much. Too many side stories that did not fit smoothly. It could have been a comedy but felt more like a joke.

Slow Start

It took a while for me to get into this book, but by the end I had come to like the 2 major characters a lot. I actually laughed OUTLOUD a few times, which isn't something that happens often for me. Nice group of side characters that add to the story. Good narrator. I enjoyed this one quite a bit.

Excellent story....

With great depth to the characters and a tale that takes its turns and twists this is a very satisfying listen.
Expertly performed by one of my favorite narrators.

The heat in one very long seen is exactly what it should be for the story.

Creditworthiness... 100% except I think I got it thru Audible Escape

Not so good

Loved a wicked kind of husband but this one didn't work. It's all over the place. The narrator is good.

Enchanting escapism

Really lovely, warm and witty. Will not disappoint or fail to entertain.

But I do feel annoyed Audible is forcing me to write more than 15 words to allow me post a review. Sometimes, less is more Mr Audible, don't be so irritating.

Great Story

I little bit of everything, Not true to the time stamp in terms of language, however it didn't take away from the story. This full of fun, drama, sadness and comedy. Took me a bit to get through the first chapter, once past that I was away with it. Easy fun read. Looking forward to the third in the series.
