Product Description


The famous soprano, Lottie English, is - unbeknownst to anyone - really the Lady Charlotte Hughes. Colin has been admiring Lottie from afar for almost three years when he finally decides to ask her to be his mistress. Instead, Lady Charlotte suggests they marry so that he can finance a European tour for her, and he can have her legally. Colin agrees, and soon discovers someone at the theater is trying to hurt her. But it's only when her dressing room is vandalized does Charlotte reveal that she possesses a rare, unpublished piece by George Handel that she suspects is the reason for all the violence. Fortunately, Colin secretly works for the government as a forger, and together they concoct a plan to set up the thief. As they work together, they discover true love in the face of danger.

Falls short..........just too unbelievable 8 Jun. 2007
By Misuzmama - Published on
Format: Mass Market Paperback
Lady Charlotte Hughs has a scandalous secret. By day she's an ordinary Lady of the ton but by night, she's the infamous Lottie English. A celebrated opera singer loved by every hot-blooded male in London, especially one in particular. Colin Ramsey, Duke of Newark, has been in lust with Lottie since he first saw her on the stage three years ago. Now he finally decides to make his move. But its Charlotte (Lottie) who has the ace up her sleeve. She proposes that if Colin wants her, he has to wed her and fund a trip abroad to so she can sing with the masters in Italy. Will Colin agree to such a bargain? Will Charlotte get out of it what she really wants? And what of all the 'accidents' happening in the theater?

Ashworth (author) just killed this one by expecting too much from a historical romance reader. I can accept one or maybe two unlikely events in a book but this one seems to be bogged down with many. First of all Charlotte is an Earl's sister and he knows of her alter ego. True that he condemns her behavior but he doesn't put a stop to it??!??! Second, Colin waits THREE years before he makes his first move to bed Lottie??!! What? -did he have to work up the courage? Third, why would Colin even agree to marry her? Why couldn't he just blackmail her into an affair by threatening to reveal her identity? And why would she be upset that he wanted to marry her for Lottie and not for the real Charlotte? Hellllooo! He didn't marry you for your brains honey! And she's actually shocked and saddened that he doesn't want the world to know that his wife is an opera singer?!?! And the list goes on and on.

It just doesn't make any sense at all. I liked the overall premise but it just didn't work. If you really want to read it then save your money and get it from the library that's were my copy's going.

Somewhat implausible 19 Mar. 2010
By austenfiend - Published on
Format: Mass Market Paperback
I had a couple of problems with this book. First, I found Charlotte to be awfully cocky. Second, she has this alternate persona (That is totally out in the public eye) that and no one can figure out it's her, but Colin realizes it right away? Oh, and if he's supposed to be this notorious playboy, why does he wait over three years to approach her? It just didn't ring true for me. However, I enjoyed the writing overall and the love scenes? Wow!!!

Loooooved it! 4 Sept. 2007
By T. L. Fentress - Published on
Format: Mass Market Paperback
I loved this book....looooved it. Obviously some people have very different taste in what they think is a good and substantially well written book. But I waited a long time for this book and was not disappointed. The plot was different for me and pulled me in completely. The tension was there. The character development was strong. I never got bored and thoroughly enjoyed this book. It was a keeper and I was enthralled. I won't go into a big, heavy review as others have. I just wanted to get my two cents in. It was worth it to me and I will read it again. It also sizzled which is always a plus too! If you like Adele's book then I think you should like this one as well.

Letdown 24 July 2007
By A. James - Published on
Format: Mass Market Paperback
The book had promise. I thought the premise was good. A Duke who secretly works for the Crown falls in lust with an opera singer who happens to be the sister of an Earl? Great. I enjoyed the first 2 chapters and then...wham...what happened? Lets start by finding out he's been in lust with her for 3 YEARS. 3 YEARS?!?! Why did it take him so long? I thought he was a rake of some esteem but sheesh. Then he goes to visit Charlotte (on the pretense of checking out her brother) and he doesn't recongize her as Lottie? Some spy he is. I had hopes for Charlotte too. I thought Lotte was great and couldn't wait to see how she develops. But nooo. After marrying the Duke she turns into some kind of prude. After a wedding night from hell, she will not let him touch her and then they try to seduce each other.

I couldn't finish it. I got half way and had to put it away. It didn't grab me like I thought it would. I didn't read the other 2 books in the trilogy and if this is a sample of her work, I don't think I'll waste my money. I have many other authors of Regency romance that I like who are much better. I'll buy their books.
what kind of great lover is the duke if he couldn't truly discern ... 9 Nov. 2014
By Maxine - Published on
Format: Mass Market Paperback
Well, first of all....there didn't seem to be any Indiscretion... second, what kind of great lover is the duke if he couldn't truly discern whether or not his wife was enjoying things on their wedding night? Third, he kept having "revealing" moments when something struck him as a "moment of clarity"...but he never seemed to "get" whatever it was and always got it wrong. This happened at least four times.... Fourth, it was truly disturbing to think that a person's "palm" could do so much!!!! Adele...palm is NOT a synonym for hand, it is a part of the hand and not a very moveable one at doesn't really do as much as you are having it do...and that was very the word must have been used twenty/thirty times . A fixation, perhaps? :)
