I know it is a plot device but surely they could have tried a little to talk about their issues instead of being icy or silent, ugh!

As do the heroine and reader, but understanding behavior doesn’t make us love the person committing the act. And if Olivia and Marcus marh the meat, then Sophia and Francis are the sweet trifle. I still wish Edmond had told his family or Mary about the gun moment, and Counferfeit that she never was that mray Marcus but ah well. There was no bringing Mama and Papa together anyway. Want to Read saving…. The story begins in an almost shocking manner. View all 4 comments. She may be a lady, but this man knows so well how to make her feel like a woman.
A Counterfeit Betrothal
I read this as part of a fairly newly released duo set that also contains “The Notorious Rake” haven’t read that one as yet Beautifully written and yes, I did want to slap Marcus and Olivia!!! This has 2 nicely-developed romances in one. In many cases, when going through early titles by an author with an extensive backlist, while the promise is there, the books aren’t as good, for a variety of reasons, the chief ones being that the industry has evolved to the point where some of the popular trends don’t hold up as is the case for many Old School titles or they have since mastered their craft more than they did in their early days.
A betrayal is not easy to forget and she felt that she would never be able to live with her husband and trust him the way she did before.
I often wondered what each had been focusing on and doing in between the time gaps in the story. In my opinion, if he loved his wife and his child, he should have left London and done what he did 15 years later. You see, the thing about Edmund is that he kind of takes the place of the heroine in this romance.
Oct 23, Lynne Tull rated it did not like it Shelves: Sophia has had a rather unfortunate life up until the time she meets up with Vincent. The story lingers a little to long in the end, but a nice book nonetheless. It’s sweet, emotional and funny at times.
Once Vincent proposes to her and the marriage is set, all that follows is a story of Sophia coming into her own person. These two have been such a pleasant surprise for me! It was so badly done you guys, so bad it make me sick because he kept stalking her and talking to her about their night together even though she told him she hated talking about that and she told him she was ashamed of how she acted that night.

I never once felt any love there at all. The book needed no crisis where both characters were pushed apart, rather it was a rising culmination to two people finding happiness in themselves and with each other. It is intense and passionate with conflicted protagonists that are flawed, frustrating, and redeemable. Balogh gives us just enough of a teaser of his emotion and just enough honorable albeit disguised balofh to make us hang on and hope.
How does she do it?
But she had meant the words. I really appreciate this character and was happy knowing she had her own story, “The Notorious Rake”.
