He won a wife in a game of cards! Dashing Major Gavin Alexander, recently elevated to sixth Earl of Seabrooke, needs a fortune—fast! His new title came with a mountain of debt, and it is only a matter of time before he's denied entrance to the clubs where he's eking out a living by gaming. When Sir Thomas Chesterton cannot pay his losses at the table and offers his sister— He won a wife in a game of cards! Dashing Major Gavin Alexander, recently elevated to sixth Earl of Seabrooke, needs a fortune—fast! His new title came with a mountain of debt, and it is only a matter of time before he's denied entrance to the clubs where he's eking out a living by gaming. When Sir Thomas Chesterton cannot pay his losses at the table and offers his sister—and her inheritance—instead, Gavin jumps at the seemingly perfect solution to his troubles and agrees to wed Miss Chesterton sight unseen. No biddable spinster Frederica Chesterton is appalled to learn what her brother has done without her consent. Determined to undo the bargain, she wrests a promise from Sir Thomas that if she can find proof Lord Seabrook is a rogue, he will release her from the betrothal. Without her brother's knowledge, Frederica infiltrates Lord Seabrooke's household as a servant to ferret out the man's secrets—and finds more of them than she bargained for! But even as she gathers her evidence against the handsome Earl, she finds herself perilously close to losing her heart. Will revealing her true identity lead to disaster, or to a happy ending neither she nor Lord Seabrooke ever expected?

This writer is new to me and reminds me of an author, Carla Kelly, that I read before. Everything in the story was going along nicely when I was broadsided by a little paragraph of "spice" and then the story proceeded. It was very odd.

    Daring Deception. Loved this book with it's humorous deceptions, burgeoning love and the delightful addition of a motherless child. Lots of twists in this masquerade of a couple, betrothed without meeting, who try to lead separate lives whilst under the same roof, both holding back their true feelings-- but, love conquers all!

    Very good I enjoyed the book a great deal. The author put a twist on a relatively common plot. However, I have given it 4 stars because the last 10 to 15% didn't live up to the rest of the book. The heroine got herself into a mess but the author didn't seem to know how to get her out of it in a way that was very interesting. And there really was no HEA.

    A cute read I loved the story about forgiving a debt with the marriage to a sister. A slight deception on her part to find a way to break the bretrothel. In the end it all worked out for a HEA!😀👍👍❤

    Memorable characters Love the humor of some of the situations. Thought Freddie/Cherry was stubborn enough to get into tight corners and smart enough to get herself out.

    Thomas has gambling debts he cannot pay to Lord Seabrook who is also gambling to save his inheritance as he appeared to have inherited nothing but gambling debts on his ascendancy as Earl. As Thomas' inheritance is tied up in a trust until he is 25 with as yet 4 years to wait or when his sister marries... Frederica has to be arbitrarily sacrificed, and a betrothal contract with Lord Seabrook was drawn to which she vehemently objected and then she bolted to her former governess' home to plan on a Thomas has gambling debts he cannot pay to Lord Seabrook who is also gambling to save his inheritance as he appeared to have inherited nothing but gambling debts on his ascendancy as Earl. As Thomas' inheritance is tied up in a trust until he is 25 with as yet 4 years to wait or when his sister marries... Frederica has to be arbitrarily sacrificed, and a betrothal contract with Lord Seabrook was drawn to which she vehemently objected and then she bolted to her former governess' home to plan on a strategy to extricate herself from said unwanted betrothal hence her deception (disguised with brown scratchy wig, drawn freckles and clear glass spectacles) as a successful applicant for assistant housekeeper to Lord Seabrook's household. As to why the Earl needs an assistant housekeeper with perfect aristocratic diction and elucidation is a mystery to both both Frederica and Miss Milliken. A Good, Entertaining and Fun read.

    Love in disguise An intriguing tale of two people who don't know what they really want and them finding out it's each other. Cross purposes are again at play as the two characters are lead around by circumstances, but eventually find love. Very romantic book.

    Good I have to say the story was well written but it was truly a live story and lacked any real steam

    This is a fun read. I love when crazy schemes go awry, but everything works out in the end. I thoroughly enjoyed this book and look forward to more.

    Bought in one of those sets that cost .99 for 6 books. A good book for reading on the phone. An interesting Heroine and a mistaken identity story, which I don't always like.
