This book can be downloaded and read in Apple Books on your Mac or iOS device.
A conspiring duchess. An amnesiac doppelgänger. Can hearts be true in the midst of double deception?
Anna feels little anguish when she sees the dead body of her husband. The young widow has no plans to mourn over the cruel Duke of Watkins, but she knows that his untimely death will put her at the mercy of his malicious younger brother. With help from her loyal butler, Anna smuggles away the body in the dead of night…
Anna hopes to keep her husband’s death a secret until she’s settled far from the reach of her spiteful brother-in-law. When she stumbles upon an unconscious, wounded man who bears an uncanny resemblance to the Duke, she wonders if she’s found the solution to all their problems. The stranger wakes up with no memories of his life, and Anna wastes no time convincing him of the lie…
As her husband’s doppelgänger begins to treat her like true royalty, Anna succumbs to his affections. Just when she thinks the charade is in the clear, the truth bubbles to the surface. Can Anna convince the amnesiac of her love before losing her husband a second time?
Her Counterfeit Husband is an enthralling Regency romance. If you like steamy sex scenes, suspenseful twists, and sizzling chemistry, then you’ll love Ruth Ann Nordin’s duplicitous tale.
Has some promise
Nordin is a good storyteller, though very weak in English. For example, while pronounced the same, peek, peak, and pique have vastly different meanings. Nordin is unaware of this, and if you love correct English, you will find all her books annoying. This one is no exception. She should spend the money on a proofreader and/or editor to fix her many mistakes.
As a historical costumer, the cover is circa 1850, not the 1815 indicated in the book. Once again, failure to pay attention to detail always detracts from historical works.
