Miss Mary Whitsun is far too intelligent to fall for the rakish charms of a handsome aristocrat. But when the gentleman in question approaches her in a bookshop, mistaking her for his fiancée, Lady Johanna Albright, the flirtatious encounter only raises more questions. Could Mary, a servant raised in a St Giles orphanage, actually be Lady Joanna's long-lost twin sister? If so, Mary has been betrothed since birth - to the rakishly handsome aristocrat himself....
Henry Collins, Viscount Blackwell, is far too intrigued by Mary to let her go so easily. He's drawn to her sharp mind, her indomitable spirit, and the fiery way in which she dismisses him - ladies simply don't dismiss Lord Blackwell. But as Mary makes her first hesitant steps into society, she can't help but wonder if she truly has a place in Henry's world - or in his heart.

Great book and awesome narration..
OK, this was a really cute novella. It was a love story and a mystery. It was about Mary Whitsun who grew up in the famous Maiden Lane Orphanage and was suddenly thought to be the twin sister of Lady Joanne who had been kidnapped and presumed dead 20 years before. It was the love story between Henry and Mary/Lady Cecilia. He was the Viscount who was promised to the oldest of the twins but when Cecilia was taken the marriage contract fell to Joanna. But she was in love with someone else. It turned out to be a love story about two couples: Henry and Mary and Joanna and John. It was the story where the Viscount went against his father’s wishes and chose Mary over a title. Needless to say, his father disowned Henry.
I was very surprised at who the assassin was. Sure fooled me. I was so far off it was ridiculous. Which made the story a lot more interesting.
There was a sex scene in this but it wasn’t until the epilogue.
As to the narration: I just had to buy the audible to this novella, not bad since it was only $3.98. It was narrated by Ashford McNab and you really can’t get much better than her. Her voices, both male and female, are just awesome and she reads with such emotion. One of my top five favorite.

I must say this was not Elizabeth Hoyt best of the maiden lane series however still more info and sweet. I guess novellas are hard to fit much into. Anyway sweet. Not as sexually charged as they usually are.
