Publisher's Summary

One summer night, Edward Alcott gives in to temptation and kisses Lady Julia Kenney in a dark garden. However, the passion she stirs within him is best left in the shadows as she weds his twin, the earl of Greyling. But when tragedy strikes, to honor the vow he makes to his dying brother, Edward must pretend to be Greyling until the countess delivers her babe.
After her husband returns from a two-month sojourn, Julia finds him changed. Bolder, more daring, and more wicked - even if he does limit their encounters to kisses. With each passing day, she falls more deeply in love.
For Edward the embers of desire sparked on that long-ago night are quickly rekindled. He yearns to be her husband in truth. But if she discovers his ruse, she will despise him - and English law prevents him from marrying his brother's widow. Yet he must dare to risk everything and reveal his secrets if he is to truly take all.

This is a tough one to rate

From almost the beginning the situation in this book made me uncomfortable. I've never been a fan of twins switching places. I almost gave up on it but I kept on. It turned out better than I thought although I can't say I really liked it.

I wasn't happy that one of the Hellions was killed off. One of the things I enjoy in series like this is the continuing characters and having one die in book 2 was tough. I understand that it's good for a book to draw out an emotional response, or three or four, but they also serve as escapism and there are enough sad things in the real world. Just my two cents.

The narration was good.

Quick Thoughts: Going to admit the first half of this book I did NOT like Edward. I am not a fan of the "take the place of your twin" troupe. He won me over though and I ended up rooting for him. I loved Julia all the way through. She was a great leading lady. This is one of those stories I think you have to judge on your own. It won't work for everyone but I did end up really liking it.

Helen is one of my favorite narrators! She nailed the narration for Edward and Julia--making them come alive. I love her pacing and emotions. I highly recommend listening to this one.
