I absolutely loved this book - full of angst and romantic tension. I was rooting for the hero and his impossible situation (assume his brother's life while suppressing his own feelings for the heroine) from the start of the book. Couldn't wait to find out how they would get to their happy ending. This is the second book of the "Hellions of Havisham" series. The hero and heroine and their general backstory are introduced in the previous novel (Falling Into Bed With a Duke). You can read and enjoy this book as a standalone novel, but for a fuller background on the characters, I'd recommend reading the previous novel first.

The premise of this book--hero's twin brother dies and he pretends to be his brother so his brother's widow doesn't realize her husband is dead and miscarry due to grief-- is both insane AND very tricky to pull off, which I think is why I was so impressed by it. You, of course, have to suspend disbelief regarding the likelihood of a woman not being able to tell the difference between her husband that she loves and his brother, but once that is done, this is a super entertaining, oddly moving book. I started reading it thinking, "No way can she pull this off" but I finished the book totally satisfied with the outcome. One of the more memorable romances I've read -- and one that I think fellow historical romance fans will definitely enjoy.
