Publisher's Summary

The rogue's temptation would be her undoing....
Gemma Haverford knows exactly who she will marry: James Randolph, the man she's had a secret understanding with for the last 11 years. With every letter written between them while he's been off at sea, their love has grown. Now they will be reunited with his return to England.
There's just one problem. The man whose words she'd fallen in love with isn't James at all....
Jasper Holland, a gentleman rogue of the first order, is trapped. Talked into a scheme by his best friend, he pretended to be James for 11 years as he wrote to Gemma, even though he'd promised James he'd break it off. But now with his return to England, his secret will come out - and he'll lose the one woman he can't live without.
What began as a game of words, now becomes a game of hearts, and Jasper will pay any price to call Gemma his.

Short and Sweet. Outstanding Narration!

This was a really good little novella. I enjoyed it. I really liked Jasper, he was pretty awesome. He was handsome, strong, and sweet. He really fell hard for Gemma. I liked Gemma too. She was a strong female heroine, not a whiny simpering one. The chemistry between these two was great, it felt real and genuine. There was a couple of nicely written hot and steamy sexual scenes.

The story line and plot was good. The story flowed very well and it was easy to follow along. There was not very much dialogue. I did miss that for sure, but what little dialogue there was, was good.

As for the narration. It was fantastic. I am a huge fan of Carolyn Morris. She does such a great job. The men sound like men, the hero sounded sexy. All the characters have their own distinct voice. She reads with emotion as called for in the story. Her reading voice is wonderful and she is a pleasure to listen to. I would be happy if she narrated all Historical Romance books! She is perfect for them.

Sweet story, well read

I listened to this on Audiobook courtesy of Caroline Morris the narrator after I mentioned how much I liked her reading of a Tessa Dare novel. I listen to quite a lot of historical romance and it was lovely to have a fresh, young sounding voice. She did a great job differentiating the different characters also.

The story itself was very enjoyable. Who doesn't love a case of mistaken identity romance. It was a novella so we don't get a great deal of depth but it was a fun read to while away a long road trip.

Gemma has been writing to James for eleven years and in those days it was tantamount to a declaration. What was a teenage crush with a very young girl has matured into something more. The only problem is that James asked his friend Jasper to give her the flick but Jasper kept writing, year after year.

This was a sweet story, with some warmish bits. I liked the premise and the story was easy and fun.
