If a lady is to become a countess, there are rules....
Number one: A lady does not attempt to come out in London society disguised as her deceased half sister.
Number two: A lady does not become enamored of her guardian, even when his masterful kisses and whispered words of affection tempt her beyond all endurance.
Number three: A lady may not climb barefoot from her bedroom onto a rose trellis nor engage in fisticuffs with riffraff, even if it is to rescue street urchins.
Number four: No matter how impossible the odds, a lady always gives her hand and her heart - though not necessarily in that order - to the one man who sees her as she truly is and loves her despite her flagrant disobedience of the rules for a lady.

Really far fetched
Did not historically make sense. The heroine seemed stubborn and foolish. I returned the book.
cousins in love...creepy
Would you try another book from Jade Lee and/or Fiona Thraille?
I would not try another JL book. This is the second one that I can't finish. She is trying to copy a Julie Garwood style, but just can't pull it off. The issue about first cousins falling in love may be suitable for those times, but I found it difficult. My cousins are like siblings, so I could not get past that hurdle.The writing is just not good. I can't understand how other reviews thought this was a great book.
Would you ever listen to anything by Jade Lee again?
Most of this is just cliché. Guardian falling in love with difficult ward, love/hate because one is not proper, and of course there has to be the saving of a " street urchin".There is no character development. the second day, the hero knows so much about the heroine that he can tell " she wants to confess something to him". I know people for years and can't tell that. The heroine's character is not believable. If she was from a small village and an outcast as a bastard, how can she have so much arrogance. How can someone like that discuss Egyptian death/burial rituals. What are they teaching in country villages to poor bastard children....Egyptian history!?! Give me a break. Nothing rings true..
What aspect of Fiona Thraille’s performance would you have changed?
The narrator was good, but the dialogue was not. This is the second book of JL that has some terrible dialogue. Doesn't she read through some of it to know how boring it is. The poor narrator had nothing to work with in this book.
You didn’t love this book... but did it have any redeeming qualities?
The story is just done to death. The only twist where the heroine takes on the identity of her dead half-sister did not enhance the book. I felt that such a big lie could not be overcome. The heroine just did not have qualities that made me like her. It's not enough to just be "spunky" and talk back to the hero, you actually have to say something that shows some of your soul to endear a character to the reader.
Any additional comments?
I can't understand the reviews. I am half way through and have given up. Nothing new here. In a romance you already know the h/h will get together, so it's the journey that has to be interesting. This voyage is not. Even the attempt at a Garwood-esque novel can't do it. I just stopped caring about anyone in the book.
