Editorial Reviews

From Booklist

If Emily Rowland knew that all it takes to be the life of a party is a dark wig, heavily applied makeup, and a gift for lying, she never would have waited so long to pretend to be a gypsy fortune-teller. Unfortunately, on this particular evening, Emily’s newfound popularity is actually working against her since she is so busy telling everyone else’s fortune she hasn’t had time to read Camden Jackson’s palm and tell him that they are destined to wed. Just as Emily is about to welcome Camden into her tent, Damien Boscastle, Earl of Shalcross, pushes his way to the head of the line. Claiming to be Angus Morpeth, Damien does his best to get Emily to leave before she gets caught up in his latest deadly mission only to discover that Emily is not a lady who readily takes orders. Written with Hunter’s distinctively dry sense of humor and flair for sexy passion, the fourteenth entry in her long-running Boscastle series unfolds with considerable charm and great gusto. --John Charles

Customer Reviews

It did get better toward the end of the book although I almost gave up and didn't finish it.
Cathy Henderson
The espionage aspect of this story is well paced and I liked how this couple looked out for each other and were very loyal.

I hadn't read any books from this series, but when I read the blurb I plunged in to read this latest installment. Luckily, this worked out fine as this book's ties to the series are pretty loose and can be read as a standalone. It was the promise of danger, espionage and historical romance all wrapped up in one story that drew me in. Offer me spies and I'm all over that book. Haha! I had a blast with this one from beginning to end.

Emily, with the help of her friend Lucy, has cooked up a scheme in the hopes of nudging the man Emily dreams of to finally notice her. Lucy has made it possible for Emily to set up a gypsy fortune teller tent at her family's ball and Emily will act as the fortune teller. Her half-Rom brother, Michael has given her a crash course in palm and tarot card reading and he watches over her from behind the tent. In an unexpected twist, instead of giving Cameron a foretelling of Emily being his future, she gets a handsome attractive stranger who ducks into the tent to avoid someone. He flirts and kisses her before he disappears into the night.

Damien leaves the delectable gypsy girl behind to get back to the serious business of his mission to infiltrate a group of anarchists, discover their plans and thwart their efforts. Only his gypsy has stumbled upon the secret meeting and the plotters call for her death. Damien has to whisk her away and eventually propose all in an effort to save her life. If he isn't completely revolted at the idea and pleasantly surprised when he sees his intended without her gypsy disguise, that is his business.

Emily has gotten into trouble for years, but this time she's tripped into a situation way beyond her ability to extricate herself.

This book was like a breath of fresh air for me yesterday. I haven't read anything quite so much fun in a while. This series has been pretty good and I like this author. The h in this book is plotting to get the husband she wants and risks her reputation by setting up a fake fortunetellers tent at her friend's family's ball. Her idea is to do a fake fortune for the man she wants by telling him that she is the woman of his dreams. Up to this point the man doesn't even notice her. Of course things go wrong and she ends up with the H in the tent while he tries to stay hidden from some treason conspirators. Both main characters are in disguise. It's a tangled series of events that has them getting married but there are so many laugh out loud moments. It's a romance with a background of a conspiracy plot. Some lovely secondary characters and a secondary romance for the h's lady's maid too.

I should have been packing for a trip I'm taking today and I should have been cooking dinner and a load of washing but It all got put on hold until I finished this lovely book.

It's a fun read with no mistresses, misunderstandings or major drama. I highly recommend it.

Jillian Hunter is the queen of the O'Henry Twist. As I was reading The Countess Confessions and nearing the last 50 to 100 pages all I kept thinking is "Wow she never REALLY dealt with the conflict. She let the Love story supersede the conflict." Then BOOM right between the eyes! She threw a twist at me that a) I didn't see coming, something very few authors are capable of doing, and b) wrapped up the entire conflict in one short chapter. Well done Ms. Hunter!!!

My only real issue with this book are a few editing issues that hopefully will be fixed before the book is released. Namely the time line of the first party. Sometimes it is referred to as last night and sometimes it is referred to as two nights ago, which is the correct timeline. This oversight bugged me the beginning of the book but the pattern didn't continue throughout the rest of the novel and once I reminded myself I had an uncorrected proof it was easy to give both Ms. Hunter and her editors the benefit of the doubt and hope this small oversight will be fixed before publication.

Overall I enjoyed my trip through England with Emily and Damien. Their chemistry is clear right from the start. His desire to protect her admirable and her trust of him is sweet and innocent without being saccharine sweet. I found the story wasn't so far fetched that it wasn't believable despite obvious liberties with timelines, passion and probably family acceptance that were taken. The dialogue was well written and the numerous love making scenes didn't distract from the overall story line, something i tend to be a real stickler for. the love making scenes were well written without going into raunchy another thing I am always grateful for.

The writing is so convoluted that the reader has to work really hard to try and understand it. It's like the author had the story in her head, but only wrote every other sentence. I am about one third of the way through this book, but I only have a vague outline in my head about what's happening with the characters. I'm not sure I'll devote the time to finish it. It's stupid, and even though I wrap my head around a lot of weird plots and story lines, stupid is one thing I have trouble tolerating.
