CAN A SCANDALOUS CHARADE
For seven long years, Lady Cassandra Monroe has waited for the man of her dreams to return from the war. Unfortunately, he happens to be engaged to her flighty cousin. What Cass wouldn’t give to take her cousin’s place! When he mistakes Cass for Patience Bunbury, a fictitious friend her cousin has invented to escape social obligations…even with her future husband, Cass thinks this is her chance.
LEAD TO TRUE AND LASTING LOVE?
After defeating Napoleon at Waterloo, Captain Julian Swift is not quite ready to settle down and enter into his unwanted arranged marriage—especially when the real object of his affection turns out to be a beguiling beauty he meets at a party. Patience Bunbury is witty, independent, passionate…and, unbeknownst to him, the cousin of his current fiancée. When the truth about Cass comes out—and Julian discovers that their courtship is anything but accidental—will he surrender his heart to a woman who really is too good to be true?
A fun, if sometimes silly, read with hilarious, over-the-top characters. Cass is thrilled that the man she loves is home safely from the war, but he is intended for her cousin. Thinking that she's helping to give them mote time together, her friend Lucy, seeing that he doesn't recognize her, introduces her as someone else and she goes along with it. From there is gets a bit crazy, as you can imagine. A lot of fun to read. Julian is sweet, but there are other characters that I'd love to read about as well, so I'll be looking for the other books in this series. I recommend for anyone who likes a fun historical romance.
