The two have never really been separated from one another before; and in th epast eighteen months apart, Eve, the more outgoing, sociable twin, has missed her quiet and studious sister intensely.But when Eve arrives at their stately home with the crates of antiquities she has gathered for their father's celebrated collection, she discovers that her twin is quite despondent. For while Eve has just gotten engaged to the well-known poet Thomas Perry, she learns that her sister is being pursued by Lord Barras, a charming but terribly arrogant nobleman whose intentions have been a bit forceful.Virtually in tears over her predicament, Amy pleads with Eve to help her, and the twins come up with a plan. Before Lord Barras can finalize his marriage proposal, the Dartwood sisters devise a delightful scheme to prevent him from falling in love with Amy. The outcome is far from what they might have expected in this highly amusing Regency by the author of Arabella and the Beast....

    Light comedy of manners modeled after Pride and Prejudice. Amy and Eve Dartwood are identical twins of more than 20 summers and had never been separated until 18 months ago when the impetuous Eve went with Papa to dig up antiquities in Naples. Eve had a grand time in Naples visiting with royals and falling in love with a handsome poet, but her "twin sense" tells her that her sister is unhappy so she races home. When she discovers that their formidable aunt has bullied Amy into accepting the hand of the loathsome Lord Barras, Eve decides it's up to her to rescue her twin. Mayhem and madness ensue. Though the plot was entirely predictable and I disliked Amy and both the men, the plot is funny and I really enjoyed it.

    3.95 stars - pg13/mild r-lite (reference to mistresses & infidelity, but no details)Sweet, funny, light story/romp. Predictable, but fun, plot. Liked main Hero and heroine and their witty banter and clash of wills. Secondary Hero and heroine had sweet, although bland, romance. Writing style not superb, but okay.

    very ordinary regency. Completely predictable and not good dialogue.
