I liked the synopsis for the book 1, so I thought why not give it a try. And its really good 🙂 . Usually I don’t like Historical romance much because most of the time I feel like hitting the hero as he is obnoxious. But thankfully that is not the case here. I felt like that towards the heroine’s twin sister. The Hero, Adrian was suppose to marry Jeannette, who is rude and obnoxious, but he ends up marrying her quiet, shy twin sister Violet. I liked how Violet changed froma quiet girl to a confident lady 🙂 . Another favourite character is Violet’s brother-in-law Kit.
Book 2 is not my favourite as it is about the other sister Jeannette. From the first book you know her as the rude one and somehow that opinion is stuck with you. She still is obnoxious in this book and you wonder why the hero, Darragh, like her when she is rude all the time 😦 . But towards the end of the book you realise that somehow you don’t have a choice on who you fall in love.
Book 3 is about Kit, brother-in-law of Violet and her best friend Eliza. This is also about a girl who is shy and quiet. Its also about how she changes her apperance to catch a husband. After half of the book you feel so sorry for him for not realising that he is perfect for Eliza. But it was such a good read.
I finished all the 3 books in a day as I wanted to know how they get together. This is a good read who like to read a little romance during their tea time 🙂 .
Book 1 – The Husband Trap
Violet Brantford has always longed for the passionate embrace of Adrian Winter, the wealthy Duke of Raeburn. Problem is, he’s set to marry Violet’s vivacious, more socially polished look-alike twin sister, Jeannette. But when Jeannette refuses to go through with the ceremony mere minutes before it is to begin, soft-spoken Violet finds herself walking down the aisle and taking vows in her sister’s place. Soon shy Violet is a high-society wife, trying to keep her real identity a secret while living out the fantasies of her wildest dreams.
Adrian thinks he knows exactly what he’s gotten himself into: Jeannette may be flighty and, well, a bit self-involved, but she’s the picture-perfect wife to carry on the Winter name. Yet this marriage of convenience brings the groom more than he bargained for when he finds his sweet, innocent wife surprising him at every turn. And though he never planned on true love, Adrian is definitely in danger of losing his heart.
Book 2 – The Wife Trap
After orchestrating a scandalous high-society ruse, Lady Jeannette Brantford is banished from her family’s estate in England and sent to live with boring elderly cousins in the Irish countryside. But Jeannette’s exile is surprisingly eventful. En route to her dreaded destination, she encounters Darragh O’Brien, a devilishly handsome architect who transforms Jeannette’s punishment into a delicious whirlwind of wits, words, and undeniable passion.
Although no less than a duke could satisfy a lady of her status, Jeannette is unable to extinguish the burning desire she has for Darragh’s smoldering looks and sizzling kisses. Little does she know, her dashing Irishman is no commoner. He’s the eleventh Earl of Mulholland—and he’s thoroughly enjoying the irresistible game of hard-to-get. But before he reveals his true identity, a little temptation and trickery are in order to teach his fair lady a lesson or two about love.
Book 3 – The Wedding Trap
Eliza Hammond has always been quiet and reserved—hardly the best qualities for finding the man of her dreams and living happily ever after. A new heiress, Eliza is financially secure, courtesy of her aunt’s fortune, but even great wealth has its drawbacks since every greedy, fortune-hunting bachelor suddenly finds Eliza irresistible.
To help her best friend, Violet takes Eliza’s romantic dilemma into her own hands, enlisting the social skills of her brother-in-law, Lord Christopher “Kit” Winter. Kit helps transform Eliza into a stunning belle, certain to attract a worthy beau. There’s just one problem: Eliza has always been head over heels in love with Kit, the very man who is trying to find her a husband! But during Eliza’s sometimes-comic extreme makeover, and with a few secret love lessons from Kit on the side, sparks—and passionate kisses—begin to fly. Kit soon finds himself completely overcome by an all-consuming desire for Eliza. But if he waits too long to recognize his love for her, he risks losing his fair lady forever.
