Started off great...the last 3 hours I wanted to put my hair out omg why make them so dumb they can't talk to each other they have to suffer and suffer and suffer just too much. 3hr of that and you 30 min of happy ending for me all the miscommunication between couples and the down right mean people took away from book. I want to hear about suffering for 5 hr I would watch tv or the news can we get some unrealistic book about happy people who actually talk to each lol wow, that's just my opinion I got this book because I like Susan erickson,if you like a lot of drama where it seem like it will never end this book is for you and part one for me was semi great.

I get it!! They don't realize they love each other

It started off great.Fantastic plot, characters, witty dialogue with a touch intrigue.

Julien Blackworth is caught in bed with the wrong woman, a spinsterish woman named Izzy. He was drunk, he went to the wrong bedroom, he got caught... Voila ! He has to marry Izzy. But Izzy, doesn't want get married, she wants to move out of her wicked cousin house, collect her inheritance left to her by her late mother, and go to America...
So Izzy convinces Julien to agree to a mock engagement (or so she thinks), and then in 4 months they can break it off. She will be of age to get her money and sail to America.

While Julien "agrees" to the plan, he has a plan of his own... He will marry Izzy, inherit the Dukedom, and set her up in the country all while continuing the way he is (a man-whore) with no thought for his wife.

But as he spends more time with Izzy, he begins to see her in a different light. He wants to spend time with her, he thinks about her when he is with other women, blah,blah, blah.
When his best friend Eric begins to show interest.... What a shock! Julien doesn't like it.
In fact while at a garden party with Izzy, Julien is in the library making his way up another woman's skirt. all the while Eric is escorting Izzy around the park. Julian happens to look out the window, while with this other woman ( that's nice). He is so furious he runs out of the library, runs into the garden and grabs Izzy away from Eric.
(Oh Please!!, What an ass!!)
Eric is a little shocked by his behavior because, he knows of Julien's plan for Izzy.
This is when it started to fizzle for me.

He loves her, but doesn't want to.... she loves him but she doesn't think he loves her.....
He thinks she is in love with his best friend Eric... she thinks he's in love with her best friend Celia...this went on for about 3 hours, with a few other things happening in between.
Ugggh, seriously! These people are supposed be be intelligent???

I really would have loved to see Izzy's maid Bette, take a brick upside both their heads....LOL

Susan Ericksen's narration saved this book for me, as did the authors writing style.
I just think that maybe another editor should have been given the original manuscript, and cut out about 3 chapters.

If your not sure whether to download it, if your local library has it, read it first, it may not bother you.
I would recommend downloading it when it goes on sale.
