This book was given to Marjorie Mindel on instaFreebie.
This is the classic story of a young lady born to the nobility, and itching to escape from her social duties, including marrying a suitable noble chosen by her father.
Emma came from England to Russian as an orphan child, was raised in Russia by her mother's sister and the sister's husband, and returns to England as a young woman, as a part of Tzar Alexander's retinue. An arranged marriage which produces no sparks, but an "accidental" meeting

***Caution: Contains some spoilers***

A Lady in Disguise is billed as a Historical Romance but there is also some suspense involved. I really wanted to like this book but it seemed rather long and drawn out. The chemistry of the two main characters seems to fizzle out part way through. The subplot with the previous suitor/next door neighbor leads almost nowhere. I kept expecting things to get dicey but the author neatly wraps it up at the end in one page.

I received this book from eBook Discovery

I enjoyed this book. It is a book suitable for all that involves you to the last page.
The heroine, Lady Emma, and the hero, Lord Jack, know their duty and both show a mask toward the word. She wants to know some excitement in her life and so meet Lord Jack as a maid and a secretary. A new a sweet relationship development between them until love was born.
In this story love, madman and adventure are mingle in a beautiful story.
I received this book from eBook Discovery in exchange for an honest rev

A prelude to peace....

As a backdrop to the celebration of Napoleon's defeat in Europe and a visit by Russian dignitaries two lonely people meet in disguise, joined the celebration and in the process fall in love. Everything was ok until after the wedding but as Shakespeare would say, all's well that ends well! Very romantic reading, enjoy!

Great historical romance. The characters just flowed right off the pages and felt like you were right there feeling everything.
I was given this story for a honest review.
