When Declan O'Connor, Earl of Donnelly, arrives at Hadley Green to meet with Lily Boudine, the new countess of Ashwood, he knows instantly that the lovely woman who welcomes him is not who she pretends to be. In an attempt to avoid an unwanted marriage, Keira Hannigan has assumed her cousin's identity and is staying at the estate while Lily is abroad. When Declan threatens to expose her, Keira convinces him to guard her secret, then enlists him in her investigation of the missing jewels, for she now believes an innocent man was hanged.

Unable to deny the beautiful, exasperating Keira - or their simmering passion - Declan reluctantly agrees. But neither is prepared for the dangerous stranger who threatens to reveal Keira's lies... and Declan knows he must protect Keira at all costs, for she is the woman who now owns his heart.

    " Just could not get into this one. I though the story and romance was slow. And you didn't even get to find out what happened to the jewels at the end!!! BTW this mystery carries on though out the series I was going to tough it out with the next one so I could find out where the jewels were. But I looked it up so far in book three you still don't know where they are. "

    " I found it a little slow getting into it...but when I did I loved it!!!..now on to book 2 in this series "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Michelle Bear | 2/6/2014

    " A great romance. I felt for the characters and went out and bought the next one in the series to find out what happens to the Duke. Great fun fast read. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Kristi | 1/29/2014

    " Another fun read from London. She does strong, smart heroines in her romances which I adore. Set up for another in the series which I will be looking forward to! "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Stasha | 1/19/2014

    " Every now and then you need to return to just plain fluff - I'm paranormalled out and just wanted some good old Victorian mistaken identity- it was a great set up for the next book in the series but I'm not sure I loved the characters or the manor enough to carry on with the series. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Lilmissmolly | 1/11/2014

    " I picked this up not having ever read or listened to a Julia London book. I was pleasantly surprised and she is now one of my favorites. I love this series. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Melanie (Moviemavengal) | 12/22/2013

    " This book started slow for me, but it had a very strong finish. The heroine had gotten herself into such a mess, that I was expecting her to just breeze through, but the author did give her consequences. She grew and came to think of others. I'll be reading the next in the series. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Tamra | 12/15/2013

    " Did not finish. Lost interest in the convulsed plot and hidden identity. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Mindy | 8/30/2013

    " Listened to this one--Narrator had a great Irish accent for the main characters. JL always gives surprises in her stories. I liked the perspective Lord Donnely, he is an unlikely hero. Kira was funny and I love how she gets Donnely to do what she wants. Fun new series by JL, "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Denise Whelan | 5/20/2013

    " Loved this book! It was a wonderful read from beginning to end! "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Alice | 12/24/2012

    " I felt this book had some of the amusing Regency humor, but a plot with a sad background that kept me from engaging with the story as much as I have with other regency romances. "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Cynthia (aka Artemis) | 12/22/2012

    " I'm not quite sure what it was that didn't call to me. Maybe a combination: storyline, voice, uninteresting characters, etc., etc. *yawn* Stopped at page 104, end of chapter six. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Selma | 11/20/2012

    " This book just didn't do it for me. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Erin H | 11/1/2012

    " I really liked Keira and Declan together but I felt this book was a bit too long for their story. I thought the ending was great and I loved the cliffhanger between Eberlin and Lily! "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Gypsie Holley | 8/26/2012

    " This is one of the better fluff reads! I am actually excited to read on.... this is so rare for me! "

    " An entertaining regency mystery. First of the series. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Mariko | 2/24/2012

    " Another wonderful Julia London hero. Though I did find the heroine a touch in need of some practical wisdom. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Keira | 3/23/2011

    " the main character, Keira... that's my name so i read it and glad i did. Nicely written with a nice scandal "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Laela | 12/7/2010

    " My first Julia London, and it won't be my last! She writes beautifully and the chemistry between Keira and Declan just sizzles. Can't wait for the next one! "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Carrie | 11/12/2010

    " I hadn't read London before and I am picky about my romance authors, so I was pleasantly surprised by this book. It had several interesting twists and fun characters, especially the dur-brain heroine and hero, and an evil villain. I'm looking forward to the next installment. "
