The Major’s Faux Fiancee by Erica Ridley

Title: The Major’s Faux Fiancee – Dukes of War #4Major Faux Fiancee

Author: Erica Ridley

Publisher: Intrepid Reads

Published: June 1st, 2015

Rating: 5/5

Miss Daphne Vaughan has been orphaned and her cousin, a notorious pirate, is now her guardian. When he threatens to marry her off or send her to a lunatic asylum she writes to Major Bartholomew Blackpool, one of the the boys who lived next door to her when she was growing up, to ask for his help. He is one of the Dukes of War. He went off to fight Napoleon with two friends and his twin brother but only three of them returned. His twin was killed on the battlefield, he lost a leg and one of the friends lost his mind. He’s avoided all social events and won’t even let his valet help bathe him – no one is allowed to see his injuries. On receiving Daphne’s note he rushes to help her. He agrees to pretend to be betrothed to her for the few weeks until she comes of age and into her own money, at which time one of them can break their engagement.. . . He’s determined to find someone who is whole to marry Daphne. She’s determined never to marry. Will love find a way for these two?

This is the fourth book in the series but all the books can be read as standalone. Having said that, they do have characters and events in common so build upon each other – and they’re all enjoyable, too, so it makes sense to read them all if you have the chance! This Regency era drama is another great book to escape into and I have no hesitation in highly recommending it.

Thanks to the author, publishers and NetGalley, too, for letting me read an ARC in exchange for an honest review.

This book is available from a variety of sources including
