Description

Sometimes the man of your dreams . . . Shop girl Poppy Fairchurch knows it's pointless fantasizing about the Duke of Autenberry. Still, dreams can't hurt anyone . . . unlike the carriage Poppy spies bearing down upon the unsuspecting duke. After she pulls him to safety, the duke lapses into a coma and Poppy is mistaken for his fiancEe. But one person isn't fooled: his arrogant and much too handsome half-brother, Struan Mackenzie. Soon Poppy isn't sure what she wants more . . . the fantasy of her duke or the reality of one smoldering Scot who challenges her at every turn. . . . is not who you think. An illegitimate second son, Struan may have built an empire and established himself as one of the wealthiest men in Britain, but he knows he will always be an outsider among the ton. Just like he knows the infuriating Poppy is a liar. There's no way the haughty Duke of Autenberry would deign to wed a working class girl. It doesn't matter how charming she is. Or tempting. Or how much Struan wants her for himself.

Professional reviews

"Narrator Carmen Rose captures heroine Poppy Fairchurch's vulnerability and hero Struan Mackenzie's no-nonsense temperament and virility in this historical romance. After Poppy saves the Duke of Autenberry from being killed by a runaway carriage, he slips into a coma. When she's mistakenly believed to be his fiancŽe, his friend demands that she keep up the farce for the good of the family. But the duke's half-brother, Struan Mackenzie, thinks the engagement is a lie and wants Poppy for himself. Rose moves smoothly from character to character--from Poppy's petulant younger sister to Struan's upper-class stepmother--giving dimension to all the supporting characters. In Rose's capable voice, the story, set in London and at the Duke's country home at Christmastime, is a satisfying romp. S.H. Winner of AudioFile Earphones Award © AudioFile 2016, Portland, Maine"
