Caro is a feisty but desperate woman. She doesn't want to abandon all home so instead she assumes the persona of another. Angelica has some freedoms that Caro does not - like speaking her mind. Tobias is a bloody mess. Being the youngest he hasn't found anything worth while to invest his time or energy in so he just drifts. Rebecca is adorable - I loved her more than Caro most of the time.
Despite the fact that in the end and over all I like Caro, she could be down right wishy washy and irritating. Actually I didn't like her very much for the second half of the book. Especially after her secret gets out. Instead of rising up - she had to be saved by the men around her. That was the most frustrating thing about this entire book. I thought it would be more about her saving herself but no. So fair warning there.
Caro's double life as Angelica catches up with her. There wasn't a lot of lead in to the bad guy being a bad guy but it was believable. Entitled and malicious. Surprisingly the romance is as important as the rest of the plot. I believe that even some men would enjoy this book due to its duel plot nature. The romantic aspect was really secondary for most of the book - only the last 25% really felt like a historical romance. Which was the worst part of the book in my opinion.
Absolutely gripping read. The writing flowed well and was at a fast paced tempo. It did a good job of sticking with the era and its colorful vernacular. At times the author overshadowed that something (mostly bad) was about to happen, which took me out of the book. There were a few POV shifts as well but also minimal. Not to mention that the grammatical errors were almost non-existent.
The characters were alright, Rebecca being my favorite and frankly Caro being my least favorite. At least the 'bad guy' (don't want to give away who it is) is consistent - Caro isn't throughout the book. She is all over the map. The only consistency is her inconsistency. The setting was well done, although more than once breaking the rules of proper society. Which may or may not be a good thing! The scenes between Caro and Tobias are very sweet though and by the end I went from not really liking to Tobias to loving him.
The duel plot and fluid writing that is gripping and interesting is the reason for this rating. Fantastic read for any vacation!

Caro is a strong woman that has done what she must to survive after her father dies. I was on edge thinking someone besides Tobias would start to figure it out. She tried so hard to convince herself that Tobias plan would end a different way.
Tobias was very different because he was a gentleman when he wanted to be, but most of the time he said and did what he wanted. I loved how he started changing when he realized his father might follow through with his threat and when he met Caro.
I loved Lady Felton because she was not as quiet as you think at first. I love a good duel scene!
