Summary

A FINE ROMANCE... Diana Sommerville seems to have it all-beauty, brains, and vast wealth, thanks to her family's ownership of a diamond mine abroad. But when her beloved brother dies in battle and leaves a lion's share of his estate to his best friend, Diana finds herself in a situation that seems scripted for the stage- Sharing her family home with the man she used to love-and now loathes. Worse, her unfaithful former fiance has already moved in . . . OR AN EXCELLENT FAKE? Rupert Lacey didn't expect Diana to take the news without a fight. Still, he didn't expect her to bring the battle directly to their newly shared doorstep-complete with a full set of trunks, and a full set of orders to the staff. Yet there she is, bold, regal . . . magnificent as ever. Now they would face a formidable challenge- to ignore each other-and the unanswered questions that stood between them. The only sure thing is their still blazing desire. But with a woman like Diana, it will take nothing less than a momentous misunderstanding, a missing prized mare, and a shocking revelation to restore a love that hasn't lost its shine . . . Jane Feather's novels are- "Enchanting." -Publishers Weekly "Dynamic." -Booklist "Captivating." -RT Book Reviews

Publisher's Weekly Review

Turn-of-the-century lovers divided by lies and distrust rekindle their romance in this capable but one-note series launch from Feather (Reckless Seduction). It's 1902 and Diana Sommerville has just returned to London from her dead father's gold and diamond mines in South Africa to discover an infuriating situation. Her older brother Jem, killed in battle fighting the Boers, left his share of the family holdings to his best friend, Rupert Lacey, the unfaithful ex-fiance Diana dumped two years ago in Africa. Now they must share the house and the family businesses-all of them-in what Rupert hopes will be a "civilized arrangement." To satisfy society's curiosity, they'll pretend they're married when they're in public. The problem is forgetting they're not married when they're in private. Although the premise raises questions about colonialism, Feather sticks to the usual story of former lovers reconciling once they've regained each other's trust. Diana is a strong heroine who's more than equal to her troubled hero in intelligence-and stubbornness. Feather's fans and new readers will enjoy this series opener, as long as they don't expect it to dig too deep. (Feb.) © Copyright PWxyz, LLC. All rights reserved.
