The fairy tale courtship did not turn into a happily-ever-after . . . Not until her husband dropped dead, that is. He had been horrible enough to Christiana during their short marriage, and she was not going to allow the traditional period of mourning to ruin her sisters' debuts as well. So she decides to put him on ice and go on as if nothing's happened . . . Until the real earl appears. Richard Fairgrave had every intention of confronting his villainous twin who had robbed him of his name and title . . . only to discover that he had died. Quietly assuming his identity, Richard must now deal with a maddening desire for his ravishing inherited "wife"— certainly a gold digger and possibly a murderess. And Christiana must deal with an unwanted new "husband" . . . and they both must figure out what to do before the ice melts!

The premise of this book, that a lady would put her dead husband on ice and go to a ball as if everything was fine, is what drew me in. Such an interesting start. Too bad it didn't stay that way.The romance, if it can even be called that, was way too fast and completely unbelievable. The main vil...
I wanted to like this book but really it never fully caught my attention. I think there were just to many coincidences and the plot was to thin...then it was just silly. I found myself skimming in hope it would catch my interest. When I got to the second half I think Ms Sands was going for dramatic ...
A little bit of regency Weekend at Bernie's. Fun read with likable characters. Nothing too deep but entertaining none the less.
