I liked this book until about 3/4 or alittle more of the ways in
when books are supposed to really "heat" up. Well, this one sort of fizzled out, and I was disappointed.
I only give this book three stars.
The plan just might have worked if Elyn hadn't lied from the very beginning about returning when she in all honesty was buying time to run away with the man she was in love with. Kiera found herself not only with a man who stirred her innermost feelings, but who just wasn't responding to the sleeping potion that should have put him into a drugged sleep on their wedding night! As Kiera tries to evade the wedding night ritual, she finds she is unable to resist Kelan's drugging kisses, and sweet caresses and her desire for him was her undoing. Wracked with guilt over the deception to Kelan, her sister's husband, and the man she was definitely beginning to love her anxieties were overwhelming - so much so that Kelan recognized that something was not quite right with his bride.
THE IMPOSTRESS was an extremely entertaining historical romance with a wonderful plot that had me quickly turning the pages and holding my breath, waiting for the truth to be revealed. The author really had me feeling all the anxiety that was Kiera's, who I found to be a very likeable, loyal and honorable heroine. I pictured myself in the difficult position of honoring a vow made to a person that had saved my life, knowing how despicable a thing it was that I had to do, and then falling in love with the man who would be your brother-in-law! While I thought the ending came about very quickly, the cast of secondary characters was well thought out supporting the plot and I am looking forward to the next two proposed novels featuring Kelan's sister Morwenna, his brother Tadd, and maybe even Kiera's youngest sister Penelope. Fans of this medieval thirteenth century romance genre are surely in for a treat as this engaging story continues!
She finds that Lord Kelan, her "husband" is not a beast at all, but a good man, and handsome. She does all she can to keep out of his bed, and tries not to fall in love, but fails miserably. The situation is compounded by his love for her and the report of "Kiera's" death when Elyn disappears following her own betrayal. Then events become even more perplexing, and it appears that the truth will come to light. How will Kelan react to learn that the woman he thinks he is married to, and has fallen for, is not who he thinks she is, and he might not even be married to?
***** As always, you can count on a Lisa Jackson book to be filled with intriguing situations, tense moments, and a fantastically sexy and compelling hero. Deceptions, magic, and passion fill the pages, and you will be held captive by the spell she weaves with these ingredients.
