Synopsis:

the substitute bride coverWhen Lily secretly takes her cousin’s place in an arranged marriage, little does she realize the desire, or the dangers, that await her.

The Marquess of Westford only offered to marry disgraced Elizabeth Cosgrove to save her family’s honor. He has no idea that an innocent girl has taken her place.

When the passion he arouses in Lily only confirms his belief that she’s a wanton, how can she ever convince him of her virtue?

The Substitute Bride is a classic Regency Romance by forbidden romance author Noël Cades.

My Thoughts:

Lily secretly takes her cousin’s place in an arranged marriage. Both girls have the same name and neither has ever met The Marquess of Westford. There is no way the man would ever suspect the switch. 

I really wasn’t certain what to expect as I had never heard of this author before.
This book was much better than I expected and if there was another book in this genre available from this author I would look forward to reading it.
I gave this book 4.75 of 5.0 stars for plot, storyline and characterization. This regency is a heated one in places so be prepared.
I received an advance review copy for free through BookSirens. This in no way affected my opinion of this book which I read and reviewed voluntarily

“… lively plot, engaging characters and heated love scenes make this a page-turner.”—RT Book Reviews, 4 Stars

In order to save her family, Emma Chadwick must find employment at an infamous gambling hell where she will learn there is pleasure to be found in falling—and sometimes being a little bad can feel so very good.

Emma Chadwick always assumed she’d live and die the daughter of a gentleman. But when her father’s death reveals a world of staggering debt and dangerous moneylenders, she must risk her good name and put her talent for mathematics to use, taking a position as bookkeeper at London’s most notorious gambling hell. Surrounded by vice and corruption on all sides, it is imperative the ton never discovers Emma’s shameful secret or her reputation—and her life—will be ruined.

But Roderick Bentley, the hell’s sinfully wealthy owner, awakens a hunger Emma cannot deny. Drawn deep into an underworld of high stakes gambling and reckless overindulgence, she soon discovers that to win the love of a ruthless scoundrel, she will have to play the game…and give in to the pleasure of falling from grace.

“You should not have kissed me,” she replied breathlessly.
“I do a lot of things I shouldn’t. It does not mean I won’t do them again.”

Deceiving the Duke ofHope Hillburn was born to a life of servitude and never once questioned her role in society. As a lady’s maid to Noelle Parrish, she had everything she wanted out of life; a secure and honorable post, a decent room to call her own, and ample time to write fantastical tales of winsome creatures while her mistress, Lady Noelle, attended the various society events offered by the ton. 

Lady Noelle Parrish knew that her father was anxious to see her wed but she never imagined he’d go behind her back and arrange for her to marry against her will, to a duke with a questionable reputation no less. Disheartened by the prospect of marrying a man she’s never met and the possibility of foregoing a lifetime of love, Noelle makes the impulsive decision to flee England with an American gentleman she’s only just met. 

There’s only one problem…

Lady Noelle’s father, the Earl of Brattondale, would never permit her to marry an untitled American, nor was he willing to go back on his word to the duke. In her desperation, Lady Noelle convinces Hope to take her place after noticing an uncanny resemblance between them both. 

Against her own better judgment, Hope agrees to take Noelle’s place when she realizes there’s no other way for Noelle to flee to America without causing her family disgrace. Thrown into a life she has only ever viewed from the outside, Hope must convince everyone that she is a lady lest her farce be discovered. She is confident that she can handle society’s strict rules of propriety but she soon learns that guarding her heart from falling in love with an incredibly handsome, self assured duke with a penchant for snarling isn’t going to be quite as easy.
