Prepare yourself for the heart-stopping romance of newcomer Liz Carlyle. "My False Heart" is the luminescent love story of a chance meeting between two strangers one dark, rain-swept night in the English countryside. From thatmoment on, their destinies are forever changed.When Elliot Armstrong, the dissolute marquis of Rannoch, pursues a spiteful mistress into the wilds of Essex to sever their relationship, he is surprised to find himself hopelessly lost -- in more ways than one. Inexplicably drawn to a warmly fit house along an isolated country lane, he is mistaken for an overdue guest -- but he dares not reveal his identity for fear of being tossed back out into the torrential rain, a fate he admittedly deserves. The loving family that innocently welcomes Rannoch into their midst soon challenges his cynical convictions, and ultimately, resurrects his shattered dreams.The beautiful Evangeline van Artevalde is an artist of exceptional talent and extraordinary secrets. Isolated from society by choice, the half-Flemish refugee has fled her homeland in search of a secure haven for the children in her family. But even the Essex countryside, she finds, is not without danger. As the clutches of her aristocratic English relatives tighten, Evangeline holds them at bay by sheer force of will, unleashing her emotions only within the walls of her studio. The furthest thing from her heart is desire -- until a drenched, strikingly handsome man shows up at her doorstep late one night. Soon, Evangeline finds she can no longer confine her passions to oil paint and canvas.Drawn by desire, Elliot and Evangeline discover a powerful love neither thought possible. But malevolent forces surround them, and soon their secrets will be exposed and their hearts tested to unthinkable limits. Only if they can forgive the past will they have a future....

Julie (Mom2lnb)'s excellent review says everything (but I always round my X.5 ratings up to X+1 instead of down to X).
Libertinos também tem coraçãoComeçei esse ano com o pé direito nas leituras! Só livros ótimos :DMy false heart, é de uma autora que nunca li nada na vida, peguei a dica do livro dela no mesmo lugar que peguei a indicação de To Have and to Hold, no blog da Rosario (http://rosario.blogspot.com/) blog ...
This is Liz Carlyle's first book and one of my favorites. I read this first and am glad I did. Many of the characters appear in her later works. I loved the whole story of Elliot and Evangeline. You could feel the warmth that Elliot felt when he stumbled upon Evangeline's house. I found myself rooti...
I tried. Really, I did. I am definitely not one to endure pages and pages of a character pondering all their conflicting thoughts. It's confusing. I definitely like to get into the head of a character to understand where they're coming from but this read didn't give me that. I was like "OK
