Desperately seeking a husband . . .

Suzette is not like other heiresses; she wants a poor husband, a gentleman who will be so grateful for her dowry that he will allow her access to it so that she can pay off her father's gambling debts. When this alluring beauty encounters Daniel Woodrow—handsome, titled, single . . . and even more impoverished than she could have hoped for—it seems Suzette's wildest dreams have come true.

But Daniel has not been truthful. Tired of being accosted by an endless stream of vapid coquettes and their fortune-hunting mothers, Daniel has decided to plead poverty to stop them in their tracks. Yet here is a most refreshing and delectable lady, who claims to be thrilled by his penury. Now all Daniel has to do to find true happiness is to keep a little white lie alive . . . while avoiding a villain who's determined to prevent this union by any means necessary.

    " I enjoy a good romance, and this one was fun. Sands complicates the plot enough to keep you entertained for all 370 page. Well done. I was tempted to give the book 4 stars, but it takes a pretty exceptional historical romance to rate 4 stars. For me, 3 is a definite recommendation. If i could have, I would have given it 3 1/2. "

    " This is the first time I tried to read what most people consider a book in the romanace genre. Needless to say, I was booooooooooored. So very very very bored. I am much more of an urban, paranormal, romance girl. I won't stray again. :) "

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

    " I was afraid this one would just be the first one but in Suzanne's point of view but i was suprised that it was but different too. Very good book! "

    " Only problem I had was re-reading the story over again. It didn't get NEW untill over half-way through but when it did it got much better. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Jane (PS) | 1/9/2014

    " This was a fun light read, but it didn't enthrall me or have me appreciating the writing-style or characterisation. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Jennifer Hobson | 1/9/2014

    " I had a hard time putting this series down...I just kept reading and couldn't wait to read how their lives turned out. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Sandra | 12/14/2013

    " I love all of her books. But this one had way to much of the retelling of book one of this series. I would say 3/4th of the book if you read book one you knew what was going to happen. Made the book boring and long at times. But I still can't wait for the next of the series. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Arriane | 12/12/2013

    " It's okay. It's just, the first part is a bit boring. And at the last part, Suzzete irritates me. Kinda annoying. I bit dissapointed, i kinda like Daniel "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 JJ | 12/12/2013

    " Ridiculous story. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Samie Kauchis | 12/1/2013

    " This book would have been better if it didn't practically recap the first book for the first half of it... Not even giving a different POV on previous events saved the boredom. That being said, once it finally passed beyond that timeline and moved onto the true adventure it wasn't a bad book at all. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Melissa | 11/26/2013

    " If you read the first, there is no need to read this one. It takes place at the same time so it was rather redundant. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Maria | 10/31/2013

    " Was a little disaponted in this book. Its basically retelling the story in the Countess, there wasnt much of a different story, so it was an ok read. The Countess was much better. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Deborah | 6/4/2013

    " Quick and light, with just enough humor and intrigue to be intersting. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Leah Webber | 6/4/2013

    " Woo mindless fluff reading. How I love thee. Fun protagonist, though a little railroaded. I really liked how she kept the attitudes to the time, instead of the usual "modern mindset in a frilly Victorian dress". "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Laura | 3/8/2013

    " Same book as the first in the series, different characters. It does extend the story out a bit, with new drama, but essentially the same telling. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Amanda dalon | 8/14/2012

    " 3.5 a cute book, this series is lacking something? i don't know what though..... "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Pacemaker Princess | 6/22/2012

    " It pains me to give it such a low rating. I LOVE Lynsay Sands books but this one didn't seem like her writing. It was hard to follow and many parts of it just did not make sense. Still love you though Lynsay! "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Sharon | 5/7/2012

    " I gave this book 5 stars because it finishes the previous book in the series "The Countess". I think these two books could have been combined into one. That being said I loved the plot and the love stories as well. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Roxy | 3/7/2012

    " Ummm... very quick read because the first twelve chapters were a retelling of the first book in this trilogy: The Countess, but from Suzette's point of view. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Janet | 2/10/2012

    " I would have given it 3 stars but it was exactly the same as the first book until 3/4 of the way through. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Sara | 7/6/2011

    " I usually enjoy Lynsay Sands romance novels, but this one was pretty blah. The first half of the book was the plot of the first in the series from a new POV, which became very old very quickly. It wasn't until the second half that things picked up and it became its own story. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Kari | 6/13/2011

    " Not as good as the first one. I found my self skipping parts in the begiining as they were the same sections in the first book. The 2 perspectives on the same happenings was interesting, but might have been better had I not read them so closely together. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Jill | 6/3/2011

    " This was great--I downloaded this to my phone to have handy whenever I got caught somewhere w/o something to read, but then I got into it and finished it in a day. Can't wait to read the first one. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Andita | 5/31/2011

    " So far I am not liking the book because it's a repeat of the first book from a slightly different perspective. I shouldn't have to read 200 pages to get to the new stuff.
    "
