"Well, I pray one of the pups can talk like Frederick. Maybe it'll tell me what I did to deserve this."
Aurora Halle McPhee is ecstatic that a man as dashing as Harland Podell had asked her to marry him. But the fairytale wedding gets interrupted when a man arrives, claiming that Podell is already married to his sister. Aurora cannot believe that fate had paid such a cruel trick on her. When the man, Kenyon Warriner, Earl of Windham, offers to marry her instead, Aurora gets swept along and finds herself married to a virtual stranger. But what happens now that Aurora and Windham are married and must make a life out of Podell's mistake?
My Opinion: I felt that this book was thoroughly enjoyable from start to finish. I can relate well to Aurora in the way she reacts to her situations. The author is very good at playing with the words and phrases to create a fun symmetry in her writing. The side characters, though fun and often whimsical, are not overly deep. Much like a Shakespearean play, they are what they are and often get what they deserve.
