Overview

Sometimes the man of your dreams . . .

Shop girl Poppy Fairchurch knows it s pointless fantasizing about the Duke of Autenberry. Still, dreams can t hurt anyone . . . unlike the carriage Poppy spies bearing down upon the unsuspecting duke. After she pulls him to safety, the duke lapses into a coma and Poppy is mistaken for his fiancee. But one person isn t fooled:

His arrogant and much too handsome half-brother, Struan Mackenzie. Soon Poppy isn t sure what she wants more . . . the fantasy of her duke or the reality of one smoldering Scot who challenges her at every turn.

. . . is not who you think.

An illegitimate second son, Struan may have built an empire and established himself as one of the wealthiest men in Britain, but he knows he will always be an outsider among the ton. Just like he knows the infuriating Poppy is a liar. There s no way the haughty Duke of Autenberry would deign to wed a working class girl. It doesn t matter how charming she is. Or tempting. Or how much Struan wants her for himself."

In this predictable but satisfying opening to the Rogue Files Regency-era series, a shop clerk falls for a self-made man. Struan Mackenzies father, the previous Duke of Autenberry, abandoned his pregnant mother and died before Struan could confront him. Struans accumulated wealth does nothing to impress his scornful half-brother, who now holds the Autenberry title. Poppy Fairchurch and her teenage sister are barely scraping by on Poppys bookstore wages. Poppy moons after the duke, whos a frequent patron at her London shop; after saving his life, shes mistaken for his fiancée, and his best friend convinces her to keep up the ruse. Struan sees an opportunity to take a dig at his brother by stealing Poppys affections. His ignoble motives change when he falls in love with her. The feelings mutual, but shes afraid hell hate her when he learns of her deception. The novel hews very closely to the plot of its namesake film, including replicating some of its flaws, but Jordan (Hell Breaks Loose) has added both disdain and heat to the familiar story. The complex characterization and eccentricities of Struans relatives refreshingly diverge from typical portrayals of Regency gentry. Agent: Maura Kye-Casella, Don Congdon Associates. (Nov.)
