Historical Romance

Juliet's plans to wed Lord Elbourne come to naught when she discovers he's obliged to wed an heiress from overseas instead. To salvage her dignity, she enters into a ruse with the heiress's brother, whom she views as a rake. Unfortunately, he's also the most attractive man she's ever met.

When Cody Gryphon first arrives in London, everyone seems to confuse him with his wicked cousin, Lord Gryphon, whom he hasn't seen in years. His uncanny resemblance to the man doesn't make it easier to establish himself. Nevertheless, Cody will do anything to see his sister Stephanie wed to Lord Elbourne, including entering into a temporary engagement with her romantic rival, Juliet. Although he intends to return to Texas as soon as his sister is wed, he finds it increasingly difficult to resist Juliet's charms.

Can a rake and a debutante have their happily ever after?

Fantastic story!

Juliette is about to be the laughing stock of the ton. When they find out she has been thrown over for an heiress, they will whisper and gossip, ruining her very first season. She was expected to make a very good match with Lord Elbourne. They get on very well.

But then he finds out his family is in dire straights and in need of funds. An American raised heiress will be his wife it seems.

To save her reputation she talks the heiress's brother into a ruse of an engagement. The fun starts there!

This was a great read, fast paced for the most part. Reading about these couples was interesting and enlightening! One never knows one's self worth until it's obvious! LOL

It is a cathartic moment when you realize what you thought was love, really was not even close. And then realizing what you might do to keep that love is even better.

Excellent writing and pace. The only thing that was a detraction for me was the use of a lot of contractions. For some reason, this bothered me. But it was a good book and I will look for more by this author!
