I grabbed up this book because of the exciting and curious blurb- a woman thief pretending to be someone else while hiding out as an escapee from Bedlam with a lord and his sister on their estate with the promise that she would not let him fall for her. Yes, it really did sound just the thing.
However, after reading nearly half this story and pushing myself to finish it, I’ve decided to stop. I couldn’t engage with the story, I couldn’t like the heroine or her choices (and she did have them and went with less than honorable ones), and I wasn’t even interested to see where the story was going. I had a liking for the hero and his quest to find his brother, but it wasn’t enough.
I won’t say the story is awful, but it is most definitely not for me.
My thanks to Penguin Group for the opportunity to read the book in exchange for an honest review.
