And, under the not-so-watchful eye of Lady Palmerston, aunt and chaperon to the young lady, Emilia is unknowingly courted by two different men with the same face! The intimate scenes were hot without being vulgar. I did find a lot of errors in this book the curse of being a history buff. Devon grows through out the story an I enjoy watching him grow into himself an get confidence. Of course she is the center of attention. While Phillip, the heir, goes about spending his family's funds, his identical twin Devon, the spare, must attend society functions as Lord Phillip—all because of a few blasted minutes' age difference. Rumor has it that he paid a sum of money to hush up the affair.
Emilia ignored him and looked to Devon to see his reaction. Nevertheless, at her first ball, her dance card soon fills with the names of highly suitable men. Beautiful, witty, charming but clumsy American Emilia Highhart's having a London season in hopes of ending it with a titled husband. I finally finished it, but it was so mediocre. Staircases, doors, even floors have proven her enemies, often leaving Emilia prostrate and mortified in a pile of muslin. If Phillip was meant to be the protagonist in the next novel, maybe don't portray him as the sort of man who beats and tries to rape his brother's wife in a fit of rage. If nothing else, her notorious outspokenness would be mildly amusing.
I found this to be a fun and delightful little romp. Rod ale uses a number of familiar tropes identical twins, one good, one bad, meddling friends and the 'negligent chaperone' of the series moniker and makes them seem fresh and exciting. Emilia has created enough scandal for one season. Devon Kensington had just returned from 5 years in America and he has decided to go to a ball as his identical twin brother, Phillip, the future Duke of Buckingham and into his arms falls an American Heiress, Emilia Highhart who has come to London to find a titled husband. She falls in love with two men, Devon and Phillip. When I came across it at the library, I snatched it off of the shelves.
She always writes with lots of dialogue. It's common for scapegrace Lord Philip of the rather tarnished reputation to avoid the balls and his traveled identical twin Devon usually goes in his stead. I will not be gone long. He caressed a cheek that flushed under his touch. I liked the hero and heroine very much. Why should she have to endure the torture of incessant questions and insinuations. No me importaría leer algo más de ella.
She certainly seemed to remember him, but he could have sworn he had never even seen her before, let alone held her for a moment. Sure, the case of insta-love is pretty immediate, but the hero is heroic and the ending is very satisfactory. Upon a gold band was a large ruby, flanked by two diamonds of equal size. The plot was pretty boring. However, he did not look forward to an evening that would inevitably be spent denying ridiculous rumors. Ruined in the garden during her coming-out ball! The social whirl had long ago ceased to amuse him.
The thought amused him, though he did not reveal it in his expression. And it dawned on her at that moment that he had never said those words to her. Emilia thought of naming one of the countless men she had met. Maya lives in New York City with her dog and her rogue. The confused girl who doesn't realize that she is in love with only one of them.
She was too aware of him. I enjoyed the plot and the characters many of the secondary characters were a hoot and I hope they appear in future novels. She is now rusticating in the country. Devon and Emilia should be happy together, not needing a title to complete their lives, especially since he already built his in America. He wondered if it ever had.
She could not see the distinguishing slash of a scar from where she stood, but she could see the desire in his eyes. I thought it was written very well and the story flowed along easily. We shall all endure hours of inane questions and insinuations. Did you meet anyone you fancied? Nevertheless, at her first ball, her dance card soon fills with th All of London is raving about the newly arrived American, Emilia Highhart. Staircases, doors, even floors have proven her enemies, often leaving Emilia prostrate and mortified in a pile of muslin. Are you goddamned kidding me? His hand on the small of her back.
