This week, I’m featuring Johanna Lindsey.
Man of My Dreams, published in April 2001
Wildly unpredictable, the most desirable beauty in the land, Megan Penworthy has set her amorous sights on Ambrose St. James, a man she has never met but has every intention of marrying. And no other suitor will satisfy her especially not the common, if uncommonly handsome, horse breeder, Devlin Jefferys.
Posing as lowborn Jefferys to escape a potentially fatal confrontation, Sir Ambrose is enthralled by the brazen, duke-hunting redhead. Without revealing his true identity, he vows to seduce and tame her, thereby foiling Megan’s plans to marry the man of her dreams. But the notorious rogue never imagined the enchanting schemer would turn out to be the only woman he would ever dream of marrying.
I enjoy reading stories with hidden/secret identities. It’s a very effective plot device when done well. You know that the secret will be revealed one way or another but if the author writes it well, what comes before and after that turning point are what will hook you to the story.
Have you read this book? What are your thoughts about it? I’d love to hear from you guys.
