This book seemed to be predictable, but it wasn't. There were some twists and turns that I did not see coming. I loved the plot and the characters! This was a cozy read!--Jane S, Librarian

The plot keeps the pages turning in this interesting tale that takes the reader on a roller coaster ride of keeping Kitty safe and hidden from her devious guardian that intends to force her into marriage. The plan has worked well until Claybourne’s grandson, Lord Zeke Thurgood, returns from Africa and take offense at the presences of Kit and stirs up a hornet’s nest. As part of the ruse after Kitty’s guardian finds her; Zeke, in collaboration with his grandfather, agrees to a “temporary” engagement until she comes into her majority. What these two people didn’t count on happening, was love. This story takes several twists and turns in this cat and mouse game of lies, scandal, which at times will become life and death situations. Sometimes you have to face the chance of loss before you finally realize what you have, and how important it is to you. Will Zeke and Kitty find their happily ever after before it is too late? Maybe, even from the grave, her beloved grandfather is still looking out for her and her happiness. Disclosure: I received a copy of this book in exchange for an honest review. All thoughts, opinions, and ratings are my own.
Claybourne suggests a daring plan. Kitty will disguise herself as a young male companion to the earl, to evade her cousin's search for her until she reaches her majority and can free herself of James's guardianship. Things are going well, until the earl's grandson returns from his globetrotting. Lord Zeke Thurgood recognizes something amiss about the "boy" Kit, which leads to much conflict as the baffled Zeke tries everything he can think of to uncover Kit's secret.
Kitty, of course, can't help gawking at the handsome and sexy Lord Thurgood, and once her secret is revealed to him, the two embark on a phony engagement to keep her cousin away from her. Their romance builds slowly, with a simmering sexual tension and plenty of humorous interactions between them. Kitty is my favorite kind of heroine—spunky and brave, but with an endearing vulnerability. Zeke has everything a romance hero should have. He's loyal, sexy, and compassionate, but with his own demons to fight. As their attraction grows and they become closer emotionally, the roadblocks to their happiness mount. Zeke doesn't believe in love and can't stay in one place too long, spurred a desperate wanderlust. Kitty, on the other hand, longs for a stable home and a marriage borne of love rather than duty. Naturally, they fall in love in spite of themselves.
Kimberly Keyes has written an exciting and steamy love story with enough twists to keep you flipping those pages furiously. I couldn't stop reading this book, even when I got a headache from staring at my Kindle for too long! The ending was perfect, with suspense and surprises around every corner, plus an exquisitely romantic finale. If you enjoy historical romance, I highly recommend The Trouble with Tigers.
