Publisher's Summary

Madeline de Lacy, the duchess of Magnus, prides herself on being one of the most sensible young women in England, which is why she can’t believe that, in a turn of the cards, her noble father has lost his entire estate – and her! – to a stranger.
On a mission to salvage her family fortune, she changes places with her cousin and companion, sending the meeker Eleanor to confront the man when had won Madeline’s hand. Now Madeline is free to enter the home of a notorious gambler, and pretends to be meek, humble, and competent with an iron. She is, of course, none of those things; she simply is resolved to win her family’s fortune back. Just when she thinks matters can’t get worse, she meets Gabriel Ansell, the earl of Campion, and they do. Horribly worse.
Four years ago, Madeline was engaged to Gabriel, and worshipped his arrogant kisses. Now, being forced to marry a man she doesn’t know pales in comparison to the ordeal of facing Gabriel again, the man who betrayed her – Gabriel, the only man she ever loved.

Enjoyed!!!!

This is the first of two books. I've read this and Justine Eyre made it a wonderful experience to listen to.
I loved the two cousins and how they looked out for each other. Even switching places with one another. Christine Dodd is one of the authors I've enjoyed reading over the years and was delighted when I saw that this Series was offered for audio. It is a wonderful book and the characters are great fun and an old mystery is being investigated and interesting things start happening and is concluded in the next book.
Which is just as good as this one.

Who switched places-the author?

I've read a fair sampling of Christina's books and enjoyed them. Until now. Switching Places was not the quality work that I've come to expect from Ms. Dodd! The story had progressed nicely and was a little over halfway finished, and I was broadsided! I fast forwarded thru the first chapter of explicit, leaning toward bondage sex in the normal manner: move forward a little then listen. I moved thru one chapter, then the second chapter. At this point I'm grumbling because I'm losing the story line and feeling cheated at all this space going to something that could have been handled better in much shorter time. I finished the book with its action, good guys triumph, with the feminine lead despairing over her lover and could she trust him or was he only hot, grueling sex while she still could barely drag herself around because of an all nighter romp. Ms. Dodd had a good book going and then, to me, cleavered in the raw sex scenes. Not like her other work at all. BUT I'm going to get the next book in the series and hope that our good author has changed her style and presents the sexy parts in a better manner.
