Excerpt

Madame de Blanchemain's, as she'd expected to do before she heard that the Dragon was coming to gobble her up. She wants to stay there quietly until Honoré can take her, and she wants me to pretend to be Ellaline Lethbridge!

I nearly fell off my chair at this point, but I hope you won't do anything like that--which is the reason why I've been working up to the revelation with such fiendish subtlety. Have you noticed it?

I truly enjoy the books by the Williamsons as perfect escapist romantic fare. The characters are well drawn, the plots move right along, and there is always a marvelously happy ending. When you don't feel like suspense or any type of stress from what you are reading you can always rely on a Williamson book to take you away from life's cares.

The plots are very similar. There is usually some type of misunderstanding or mistaken identity situation that is the conflict to be overcome before the romance can go forward. The writing is light and fun and truly delightful. Enjoy.
