They risk it all for adventure and romance, but find that love only flourishes in truth...

1886, New York City: Charlotte Gleason, a rich heiress from England, escapes a family crisis by traveling to America in order to marry the even wealthier Conrad Tremaine.

She soon decides that an arranged marriage is not for her and persuades her maid, Dora, to take her place. She wants a chance at "real life," even if it means giving up financial security. For Charlotte, it's a risk she's willing to take. What begins as the whim of a spoiled rich girl wanting adventure becomes a test of survival amid poverty beyond Charlotte's blackest nightmares.

As for Dora, it's the chance of a lifetime. She lives a fairy tale complete with gowns, jewels, and lavish mansions--yet is tormented by guilt from the possibility of discovery and the presence of another love that will not die. Is this what her heart truly longs for?

Will their masquerade be discovered? Will one of them have second thoughts? There is no guarantee the switch will work. It's a risk. It's the chance of a lifetime.

Heidi Says . . . I didn’t get to read this book, as Ashley swiped it out from under me the minute it arrived in our mailbox.  She loved it, though, so I’m turning this review over to her . . .

Ashley’s 2 cents . . . I really enjoyed this book. It was well written, and I couldn’t put it down. I couldn’t wait to find out what was going to happen next and it kept me turning the pages. I had absolutely no idea what was going to happen at the end of the book but I was excited at the outcome. It was definitely a book that I would recommend to just about anyone. It was a good read!
