This was a fun and flirty historical fiction romance set in London.
Ophelia is an orphan whose twin died when they were young. Escaping a cruel and uncaring uncle, she has masqueraded as her twin brother for the last 10 years. She only needs to last until the end of the year, when she will finally be old enough to come into her inheritance and be free to leave London and finally be herself again, a young woman. She works as a land agent for the Earl of Carlyle. It’s the perfect job for her, except for the fact where she’s hopelessly attracted to him.
Meanwhile the Earl is determined to make a good match for his teenage sister making her debut into society, despite her wild and wicked ways. When he eventually discovers that his land agent “Abel” is really Ophelia, his attraction sparks and he takes her under his protection to save her from the uncle intent on killing her before she inherits.
This was a fluffy, flirty romance that was fun to read. The plot wasn’t too in-depth and was pretty formulaic, but I still enjoyed it as a good, escapist read.
I received complimentary copy of this book from NetGalley and Forever. All opinions are my own.
