    I like this better than some people I agree with those who found it disconcerting that Peter kept calling Penelope little one He spoke affectionately but like she was a child not an adult It was weird having him refer to her

    I really enjoyed this book I liked the character especially the sisters the emotions the situations and closeness of the friendships There were parts that made me lol and smile to myself for the mischief caused and mayhem I liked the characteristics of the female lead and the innate goodness and confusion of the male lead I would enjoy reading this book again and if I owned it it would stay on the shelf This w

WHAT OTHER SECRETS WAS HIS BRIDE HIDINGDid family honor really dictate that he marry the first eligible girl who could make intelligent conversation The Earl of Darleston certainly hoped not but there was no denyin. Peter and Penelope Hmmmm This is a tough one to decide on The story seems to jump hurdles as it goes The first two chapters I hated it Peter and his mistress seemed to take over and I always hate having authors force me to see the H enjoying other women just ICKReally the first 25% sucked for the most part It s set up on a rather convoluted plot for what should be a simple story frame work Then the story is on of a roll but still it was a back and forth for the H I m so hot for her I m so cold etc The last third was fun and almost made up for the first 23 but not uite There are TSTL moments abounding He grovels But I don t know if it could ever be enough to compensate for the first uarter of the book Peter s heir an young nephewcousin dies and the next in line is murderous scum So Peter determines to marry again even though he still hates women because of how his first wife behaved Overly convoluted circumstances lead to his marrying one of the Ffolliots sisters Because Phoebe is already promised he ends up unknowingly marrying her twin sister Penny who is blind Somehow she is able to fool people all the time that she isn t blind time to exercise suspension of disbelief I don t think the author did much research into it She sets him right as soon as they get to his place but he s a complete ass about it Luckily he improves soon after But he is so distrustful of getting close to a woman again that a good part of the book is taken up with him playing hot and cold with his new bride He realizes he is doing it but can t seem to stop himself Rinse and repeat until his heir and ex mistress start their evil plotting You may be wondering why I gave it 3 stars and not less Well I really did like Penny and I liked the way Peter uickly learns from his mistaken assumptions of her It was sweet and I really felt he cared The ending was well unnecessary Not sure why the author felt she needed to make that leap view spoiler cure Penny s blindness Although it was kinda cool to visualise her waking up and seeing who appears to be a stranger because she d never seen Peter s face before hide spoiler

Oebe but her twin Penelope But when Penelope revealed the reason behind the charade Darleston knew his unexpected bride deserved nothing less than his whole heart Could he now turn a paper marriage into wedding bli. EDITED Re Read August 2010 I still agree with the below review and rating only this time I was really put off by the enormous amount of exclamation points lol What other secrets was his bride hidingDid family honor really dictate that he marry the first eligible girl who could make intelligent conversation The Earl of Darleston certainly hoped not but there was no denying that he needed a bride And Miss Phoebe Ffolliot seemed the ideal candidate for a marriage in name onlyOr so he thought Until his bride brought a wolfhound to the wedding and the learned that he hadn t married Phoebe but her twin Penelope But when Penelope revealed the reason behind the charade Darleston knew his unexpected bride deserved nothing less than his whole heart Could he now turn a paper marriage into wedding blissIf you ve read any other books by Elizabeth Rolls you ll recognize a lot of elements of this book First there s the bitter mistress plotting with some evil somebody to do harm to our Heroine You ve also got her typical Hero who just refuses to admit that he s falling for his wife And then there s the bit about the horse at the end which reminded me a lot of the climax of His Lady Mistress That said though I was uite pleased with our Heroine Penny She wasn t nearly as much of a doormat as some of ER s other heroines which was uite refreshing While I was a bit surprised by a physical condition of hers that I m going to make you read to discover bad me I was also thrilled to see that it didn t make her weak as it might have any other characterOne thing that bothered me though was that during the first three chapters our Hero had an active sexual relationship with another woman Now I realize that part of the fun of those Reformed Rake stories is that the Hero previously was a man slut However I don t particularly want to read about it in the present tense no matter how hard the author tries to allude to it without going into an actual love scene Having his mistress who is of course not our Heroine change into a very revealing night robe and him remove his cravat and start kissing her on the sofa before they fade to black and then have the narrative comment the next morning about how late he got home Yeah Not my thing I actually cringed to hear the mistresses POV about how our hero was distant while making love or somesuch nonsense Blech I would have been much happier had ER left that out and merely given us the history as she did in The Dutiful Rake which of course had a similar bitter mistress turned villainess plot though I actually LIKED the villainess in TDR lol At least in TDR when the Hero was still macking it with his mistress he hadn t yet met our Heroine Don t get me wrong he s not cheating on Penny In fact they d only met once maybe twice by this point and it s not as though they d started to express any interest in each other except for the casual social chatter you would expect from passing acuaintances The ending left me a bit I don t know Not Surprised I guess I don t want to spoil it completely but let s just say that I had a sneaking suspicion all along that things would end up exactly the way they did You ll see what I m talking about if you read it Overall I did enjoy it I still prefer His Lady Mistress though it was pretty eual to the other ER works that I ve readWhile all of ER s books seem to have similar plot elements and tend to be a bit formulaic it s the needless angst brought about by lack of communication and even self loathing and insecurity that make me keep reading anyway This book had the formula but not as much of the angst For many readers however that will actually be a positive point Had I not read her other works I think I might have enjoyed it a bit because of this The simple fact that I recognized similar plot elements from her other books did detract from the story a bit which is why it got a lower score than some of her other books that I ve rated If I work to put those similarities out of my mind then the book really does become enjoyable starting with Chapter 4 for reasons I mentioned above Overall a nice summer read despite the fact it s December
