When they first met Lord Jeremy William Radcliffe, Charlie and her twin sister, Elizabeth were escaping from their uncle-taking turns acting the young gentleman to avoid detection. But Charlie couldn't help falling head over heels-and out of a window-for the handsome lord. Of course, that was only the beginning; Lord Radcliffe insisted on showing "him" and her lovely sister to London.
But how could he do that? With every touch, Radcliffe seemed unknowingly to incite indecent desires in Charlie, and his fraternal intent was certain to land her in a fine mess. Though it was a great game to play a boy, there was more fun in being female. And after one brush of his fiery lips when her guise was gone, Charlie swore to be nothing but his fiery woman forevermore.
This book was a lot of fun to read! The whole concept was hilarious, that one girl in a pair of twins pretended to be a boy. And that they switched back and forth. That was pretty darned hilarious and was a ton of fun to read!
I liked the fact that Radcliffe was only attracted to Charlie, not her sister. That he knew without knowing which role she was playing, girl or boy. Though he thought he was attracted to both the brother and the sister, we knew better!
One thing that was so hilarious about this book was all the strays that Charlie found and saved. From human beings (the family of a gambler who killed himself because he lost all their money) to the dogs, yeah, this was a sweet part of Charlie's character. And how Jeremy reacted to them was pretty great, too! Especially since the humans were mainly given positions in his house, becoming his staff.
That ending, yeah, there were a lot of switches, and it was pretty hilarious! But they had to thwart the bad guys who wanted to marry the girls. And all the people who had to come along! So there was that utterly wonderful ending! And that second marriage ceremony, with the right people! So great!
This book was so fantastic and enjoyable! Such a great read!
