A Mischievous Charade . . .

Harriet, Duchess of Berrow, is tired of her title and the responsibilities that come along with it. Enough with proper tea parties and elegant balls; what Harriet really wants is to attend an outrageous soiree where she can unleash her wildest whims and desires. But to attend such an event—especially if the event in question is Lord Justinian Strange's rollicking fete, filled with noble rogues and rotters, risqué ladies and illicit lovers—would be certain scandal. That's why she must disguise herself . . .

Looking forward to a night of uninhibited pleasure, Lord Strange is shocked to discover that beneath the clothes of a no-good rake is the most beautiful woman in the room. Why is a woman like her risking her reputation at his notorious affair? And can he possibly entice her to stay . . . forever?

Listener Opinions

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Edith | 2/11/2014

    " Eloisa has a different writing style that I've not seen before in romance novels. I like it, it's fresh; and so was the idea behind the book. Refreshing story. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Shelly | 1/30/2014

    " This is my favorite Eloisa James yet, though, yes, it's probably because of the cross-dressing. I think James is actually at her best when she strays away from the conventional ton--like here, and in A Kiss at Midnight. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Ummu Auni | 1/29/2014

    " Harriet accompanied Isidore to Lord Strange's residence on which Isidore had the gullibility to create a scandal in ensuring her husband returns to her. Harriet wanted a touch of adventure, hence she dressed as a man, just to explore being a male. The starting point was interesting, but then, it went downhill went Lord Strange's discovered Harriet's identity. Hence a 3 rating or a 2.5 "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Dee | 1/27/2014

    " Hilarious with a hint of enticement. Looking forward to the next book in series. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Jenny Rebecca | 1/24/2014

    " I liked this book. I really enjoyed the hero. He was amazing. Wasn't sure about the ending-fight. It seemed a bit contrived, but whatcanyado? Not a bad read. Plus, Eloisa did a good job of not making this one so full of other people's stories, which made it less distracting. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Erin O'Donoghue | 1/23/2014

    " This was not my favorite of the Desperate Duchess series, mostly because I hard time with the main conflict that separates the hero and heroine as it seems so ridiculous. That being said there was a lot of fun banter and scenarios leading up to the inevitable admission of love between the two characters as the main character, the Duchess of Berrow, has decided to spend her time at a visit to a country house with a scandalous reputation, disguised as a man. She enjoys the freedom this disguise has brought her after the years of boring polite society as a widowed duchess, and the hero Simon is frustrated and confused as he becomes increasingly drawn the young 'man.' It has a fun sort of 12th Night feel to it, and while the 'why we can't be together' conflict takes far too long to resolve itself, the overall book was still quite fun. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Giedre | 1/9/2014

    " Liked this one the most so far, which was surprising considering that I found Harriet to be the dullest of the duchesses. Actually, I really loved the pairing in this one. The secondary characters were great as always. Could've done without the miscommunication at the end. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Belle | 1/6/2014

    " Best book in the series so far. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Connie | 10/17/2013

    " This was an interesting story. It seemed a little predictable, and it wrapped up a little on the easy side for me. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Irinak | 9/21/2013

    " Fast, light, well-written and amusing. I really enjoyed it. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Carrie | 8/29/2013

    " I loved this book and can't wait for the next one. I actually chuckled out loud during this book. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Keira Swank | 7/24/2013

    " Amazing book. Liked it so much had to read it again "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Marianna | 7/12/2013

    " I liked it at the beginning, but the more I read the less I really loved it. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Carlie | 4/27/2013

    " Another fun story by Eloisa James. I do love good cross dressing stories. It didn't reach the heights of a great romance novel, but it was a quick and easy read. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Katy | 3/9/2013

    " Good girly book to read when you can't find anything else. Most of the story was predictable. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Mary Lizotte | 2/6/2013

    " I enjoyed the book and actually laughed out loud a few times. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Jeanne | 12/20/2012

    " There was something promising with the cross-dressing plot of this novel, but like its predecessor (An Affair Before Christmas), it failed to really interest me. I keep fond memories of Harriet and her Lord Strange, but the novel doesn't seem to do them justice. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Cameron | 11/21/2012

    " Oh god. This book is dumb, but it draws you in and makes you read it and for some reason it makes you like it. It's not that it's great, but that all the characters are so endearing. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Jill | 11/11/2012

    " Liked this one a lot--I'm really enjoynig reading this series one after the other, especially since the beginning of the next novel overlaps with the event at the end of the previous book--from a different character's perspective, of course. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Giselle Biviano | 9/26/2012

    " This is now one of my favourite books ever!! Although I only suggest this book to a person who has some maturity :) Other than that, the story line is a sort of common one but has some excellent ways of expressing funnny things :) "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Alli | 8/30/2012

    " This is by far the most hilarious book in the series! I was laughing nearly the entire time. I love love loved it! "
