From the Back Cover
The Crompton sisters have a knack for falling in love with the most unlikely bachelors in Olivia Drake's "enticing series…that readers will adore" (Romantic Times BOOKreviews).
AN UNEXPECTED LOVE
The youngest of the Crompton heiresses, Blythe yearns to marry into the aristocracy to bolster her family's place in society. The widowed Duke of Savoy seems to be the perfect choice, yet it's another man who sets her heart to pounding: the new footman, James. He's devilishly handsome and far more fascinating than any of her noble suitors. And he alone has the power to stir her romantic dreams.
AN UNDENIABLE PASSION
Little does she know, however, James Ryding is the true heir to the Crompton fortune. He's posing as a servant in order to find evidence to prove her parents are imposters. By charming Blythe, he hopes to use her to regain his rightful inheritance. But as heat flares between them, he realizes that fulfilling his quest will mean ruining the beautiful, spirited woman who has captured his heart.

The 'hero' here (and I use that term very loosely)completely manipulated Blythe to make her fall in love with him to expose her parent's deception. Then she forgives him so quickly... and confesses she still loves him- but she doesn't really KNOW him. How could you love someone who completely fabricated everything you knew about them?
Completely ridiculous and hard to believe. I was very disappointed!
Quite frankly by the middle of the book I didn't care too hoots what happened to James or Blythe. The writing was bland and implausible. The main characters were unpleasant, selfish, and users of others. The ending was ridiculous...everyone very quickly forgiving each other despite major betrayal. The only reason I gave this book 2 stars was because I did manage to finish it, and it was marginally better than Never Trust A Rogue (Heiress in London).
I do not enjoy Olivia Drake's writing at all. It's too juvenile for me. After struggling through the "Heiress in London" series, I will not buying any more of her books.
