You have all the stock characters in this novel, but even they are more interesting than in similar novels of this genre. Of course, there is the requisite HEA, but that doesn't come until there's been a little intrigue leading to a swoon-worthy rescue. Is it great literature? No, but it makes for pleasant rainy afternoon reading.
I loved that Olivia was a strong female lead and stood her ground for months until his heart was secure. I loved Jason's spirit and demermanation to right his wrong and do amsot everything in his power to win her back. This included not telling anyone but his best friend that we was married and courting his wife.
There didn't seem to be any real reason why the h came to love the H. He had treated her badly and she had every right to leave him but suddenly she was attracted to him and then eventually was seduced by him.
I thought he should have suffered more for how he treated her. Maybe have her go off to Italy and leave him in London embarrassed by her departure and everyone wondering how he was going to entice her back.
The bit at the end with the deranged cousin was really lame. Too contrived and not really necessary to the story.
I have read other Callie Hutton books that were delightful. I hope she gets back on track next time.
This delightfully funny twist on the mistaken identity romance had plenty of laughable moments along the way, but over time, Jason develops in a more complex character than the rake he appears to be at the outset. While I was gratified to see him receive his comeuppance more than once along the way, I found myself cheering for this unlikely union before long. A fun, lighthearted read perfect for fans of Regency romance. Can't wait for more Marriage Mart Mayhem
