Historical romance

To review

Number 7, and this time not that much talk about those dancing shoes. You have to read it to understand ;)

I liked Daphne, I would have been a lot angrier. I mean yes her husband left to go to war, they had barely been married, but then he came back, but not to her. Yes that would have made me mad, my husband back from war, like come by and say hello at least. She has been doing her own thing for 7 years now. Going from Ball to Ball, and getting into trouble.

So yes Colin wasn't that smartest guy on the planet. He had commitment issues, and emotional issues. But I understood, he had been through a lot, and he had his issues. He just needed a kick int he behind to understand how great they could be together.

I liked them together, they married without ever even talking, and now they get to know each other. And trying to figure out what to do with the trouble she is in

A really evil baddie with bad bad intentions. I'd like to kick that guy down to hell.

I enjoyed this book.  The next one will be interesting to be sure

Aston is always good. I like all her voices and how she gets the Ton just right. She really is great with historical romance

Lady Daphne, daughter of the Duke of Warcliffe, is one of the Three Suns. Society revolves around her. But there’s one person who doesn’t seem to know she’s alive—her own husband. Lady Daphne was thrilled to marry Colin FitzRoy, the son of her mother’s dear friend, seven years before. But then he left for the army, and their marriage never really had a chance. Now she’s in trouble, and Colin has reentered her life. She’s determined to refuse his help, especially after the way he’s treated her, but Colin can be persuasive…especially when he has her alone.

Baring it all is part of the seduction.

Colin FitzRoy was known as The Pretender during the war. He’s an expert in the art of disguise, but even when he takes off the mask, he hides who he really is. Colin pretends he doesn’t have feelings, but when he’s thrust together with his estranged wife, his buried emotions resurface. Before long, Colin is juggling an elderly pug, a wife-hunting Scotsman, and a duplicitous street urchin in an effort to keep Daphne safe. But his greatest challenge is not only to seduce her but to win her heart.


  1. Oh... I like the sound of this one. That they needed to actually fall in love. And I do enjoy a bad guy I can hate!

    1. I am reading one now where the bad guy, grrrr, must hit him!

  2. What a pretty pink dress she is wearing on the cover.

  3. Cute! And the cover looks like a pink confection :-)

    1. She was famous pink dresses, so I guess it fits

  4. Colin sounds like he needs a kick in the behind! I hope there was an appropriate amount of groveling on his part!

  5. You made me laugh with your comments. Sounds a good listen.

  6. I'm glad it all turned out well, but wow, the characters' lives all sound like a mess!

  7. I haven't picked up a book by Galen in so long...after reading your review I think I'm going to have to soon! Her writing is so good!
