Wren Taggart is no lady. Her life consists of kitchen duties at Newcastle Inn. Mistaken for Lady Anne, the illegitimate daughter of England's Prince Regent, she is kidnapped and forced to marry a man who cares nothing for her or for Britain. Deception and lies is the only way for her to return home. But when her heart softens toward her new husband, she fears she will lose more than the life she's known.
Scottish born, Beckett Montgomery is no lord. The bastard son of a nobleman, he despises everyone and everything British. To restore a family name and fortune he doesn't want, he must convince all of Longton nobility and England's Prince Regent that he is the honorable Sir Lacey and the rightful heir to Longton Castle.
When a murderer targets women who bear a resemblance to Wren, Beck must choose between returning home to Scotland and protecting the woman he's come to love.

The beginning of the story was quite intriguing and kept me on my toes but I feel the plot got to a point where the story started to drag. Also, the mistaken identity issue was a pivotal factor in the whole story whoever there were moments that it wasn't handled right. For instance, once the hero figures out the truth he should have at least tried to find out what happened to the real Lady Anne but instead does, what?...
The narrative of the story was pretty slow not to mention there was much "she said," "he said," as opposed to other ways to infer who was doing the talking and at times that became annoying.
There were times that the Scottish brogue and English accent sounded the same and flat, like there was no lilt, not always of course but still I couldn't tell who was doing the talking until there was the "he said" part.
Yes and no. This is my personal opinion obviously and perhaps I would have felt different if I had read the story myself. The book dragged a lot in some parts so I feel that had I been reading it I could had just skimmed those pages instead of listening to what to me was just redundant and inessential to the plot.
The end was a bit confusing and I get that is a series but it left me with an aftertaste of unfulfillment. To me there were to many untied knots and too many unanswered questions that I don't want to post or I'm afraid I would be giving away too many spoilers.
Overall I guess it was a decent read and I'd like to know what happens to the hero and heroine but I'm still not sure if I'll be picking up the next one in the series.
