Description

For seven long years, Lady Cassandra Monroe has waited for the man of her dreams to return from the war. Unfortunately, he happens to be engaged to her flighty cousin. When he mistakes Cass for Patience Bunbury, a fictitious friend her cousin has invented to escape social obligations-even with her future husband-Cass thinks this is her chance. After defeating Napoleon at Waterloo, Captain Julian Swift is not quite ready to settle down and enter into his unwanted arranged marriage. Patience Bunbury is witty, independent, passionate, and, unbeknownst to him, the cousin of his current fiancee. When the truth about Cass comes out, will he surrender his heart to a woman who really is too good to be true?

        September 22, 2014
        Bowman draws on the identity confusion capers of Oscar Wilde’s The Importance of Being Ernest in the charming second entry in her Playful Brides Regency series (after The Unexpected Duchess). Capt. Julian Swift, an untitled second son who served in the Napoleonic wars, returns to London in the autumn of 1815. Cassandra Monroe has been exchanging heartfelt correspondence with him, and a deep emotional connection has grown between them, but Julian is intended to be betrothed to Cass’s cousin, Penelope. When an unenthusiastic Penelope uses a house party with the fictional Patience Bunbury to evade meeting Julian, Cass decides to boldly adopt the persona of Patience in order to spend time with her beloved pen pal. Antics ensue. Readers who are frustrated by Cass’s initial passivity and the contrivances and coincidences demanded by the story’s source material will be rewarded by Bowman’s depiction of the intimate caring connecting between Cass and Julian.
