In this romantic tale of hidden identity and second chances, Serena Donovan must choose between risking the future of all the Donovans and a chance at true love.

Serena Donovan left London six years ago, her heart broken and her reputation ruined by devilishly handsome Jonathan Dane. Now, with her family’s future in peril, she reluctantly agrees to return to England and assume her late twin’s identity. The price? She must marry a man she doesn’t love and spend the rest of her days living a lie.

Jonathan Dane, Earl of Stratford, has become an incorrigible rake, drinking, gambling—and trying to forget Serena Donovan. Yet the moment he is introduced to the prim and proper “Meg,” he recognizes the sensual young woman who captured his heart. Haunted by his past mistakes, he refuses to lose Serena again. But convincing her to trust him is no easy task. Claiming his lost love means exposing the truth and destroying the life Serena has sacrificed everything to rebuild. With the future of all the Donovans at stake, and their undying passion capable of triggering yet another scandal, how much will Jonathan and Serena risk for a chance at true love?

Listener Opinions

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Meagan | 12/12/2013

    " I had a little trouble getting into this book in the beginning. The sudden accident with Meg was kinda laughable. I think that was because a bit confusing and not written correctly for that type of situation. The rest of the book however was nicely done. I thought it would be very predictable but it wasn't. I liked how it turned out that that Meg's beloved Will was actually the Jonathan character rather than the actual Jonathan. The build up to when Serena and Jonathan finally made love (as it seems like in their past it was all about lust) was beautiful. The back story about Will came as a bit of a shock, and really seemed to come out of no where. I mean why would he do such a thing? There was no motive to his actions except for being drunk. This man who came off prim and proper? I doubt would sleep with someone besides his betrothed. Maybe that's just my opinion but I did enjoy this book and was glad that I won it. "

    " 2.5 not as good as the third in the series (kinda cheesy actually) "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Regina | 8/4/2013

    " I was intrigued by the plot but was sorely disappointed with the compromises the characters had to live with. An average read, and it certainly doesn't make me want to follow up with the rest of the series. 3 stars. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Maria | 10/28/2012

    " Sensuous, romantic, and heartbreaking romance. Loved it! "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Rhonda | 6/12/2012

    " Good start to a new series. The storyline might be a bit predictable at times, but that didn't bother me much. I enjoyed the characters and I found myself laughing and crying with them. All in all, this was a sweet romance that reminds us redemption and love can and does find us. "
