I sadly didn't connect to this one like I was hoping. I thought the characters actions didn't always seem believable and took me out of the story. The romance between William and Mercedes felt rushed, he takes half the book to realize what is going on and just accepts things rather quickly. Meanwhile, Mercedes is pretending (very poorly) to be her sister and yet is mad that William doesn't trust her.
I figured out the mystery and who was after William early on, but never really bought their motivations. The more I think about the plot, the more confused I get. Maybe I shouldn't overanalyze it, but I do have many questions. Overall, if you don't think too much about things and just read for a fun escape then this is a unique story and an okay read, it did keep me turning the pages.
Romance: Pretty clean. Fade to black/closed door intimacy. Innuendo. Lots of references to Kat's affairs.
Series: Heroic Rogues, Book One
When Mercedes is notified by a physician that Katherine is a patient in an insane asylum, and goes to visit her, she finds her sister is a mere shadow of the woman she used to be. Katherine tearfully tells Mercedes that she has run away from her abusive husband; a man she claims is little better than a monster. Among her other accusations, Katherine also questions her husband's loyalty to the crown. When Katherine dies, Mercedes travels to Philadelphia, determined to get William to pay Katherine's outstanding medical bills and funeral expenses. She also has some vague idea about spying on him to determine whether or not he is indeed a traitor to the crown; if he is, she intends to turn him over to the authorities.
When William and Mercedes first meet, and he mistakenly believes her to be Katherine, Mercedes plays along as she realizes that this ruse will help her in her endeavors to spy on William. However, as Mercedes assumes the role of her sister, she quickly starts to realize that all is not as it seems. She more she learns about her sister, the more disturbed she becomes, and her brother-in-law is completely different from the man Katherine had described. Another mystery is why everyone calls her sister Mercedes? Umm?
The story that unfolds is chock full of romance and excitement; as William and Mercedes grow closer, love blossoms between them, all while they navigate the tense political climate. Soon Mercedes must choose between her beloved country and the man she to whom she has lost her heart. This was a very intriguing book; it held held my attention from start to finish--so much so that I read it in one day! I liked it and would highly recommend it as a worthwhile read. FYI, this is a clean romance. Happy reading!
This novel was better than I expected from the reviews. I didn’t find it at all implausible that Mercy was mistaken for her twin, since no one in Philadelphia knew there was a twin. There were a few inconsistencies, however. William saw all of Mercy’s expressions and emotions from across a room lit only from moonlight shining in. No one in 1764 would have thought that alcohol would be bad for an unborn child. The phrase “as red as turnips” didn’t make sense, because turnips aren’t red. I think the author must have meant beets. The adjective, “different,” was also used when the adverb, “differently,” was needed. I thought the plot was interesting, however, and the main characters likeable. Parts of the ending was a bit cheesy and overdone, but I did enjoy the read.
