Justin Reeve Netherwood, Earl of Kempthorn—a.k.a. Thorn—has never cared much for his neighbor’s daughter. But his twin brother, Gideon, befriended the wild, reckless, and wholly inappropriate Miss Olivia Lydall in youth, and two have been close ever since. So when Olivia finds herself in a state of romantic conflict and seeks out Gideon for advice, he’s only too pleased to oblige. Only problem: The man Olivia is speaking to is Thorn. And now it’s too late for him to tell Olivia the truth…

Thorn always believed that Olivia was too smitten with Gideon for her own good. So what’s the harm in steering her away from him? But Thorn’s charade turns out to be anything but harmless once he begins to see Olivia for who she really is: A woman full of spirit and passion…and someone he can’t live without. But how can Thorn claim Olivia’s heart when their deepening connection—and burning desire—is built on lies and deceit?


Justin Netherwood the Earl of Kempthorn or Thorn to friends and family has been sent to find his twin brother Gideon.  The huge get together his mother has organized is to welcome him home and he has dodged out. Gideon is amusing himself with their neighbour's daughter. 
Miss Olivia Lydall  has lived nextdoor to the twins all her life.  One has always been a great friend the other cold and arrogant. 
Our hero has some very muddled feelings concerning his brother and the lovely impertinent Olivia.  Our heroine can't seem to stop making a fool of herself,  and it always by happens when one of the twins are around. 
A fun historical romance with difficult family relations at it's core. Steamy love scenes with a side of intrigue.  It's very easy to get involved in the lives of our characters.  I think the other twin has a big secret that might be revealed in another book.  I hope so, he is too sweet not to get his HEA.  I loved it.
