Synopsis from Barnes and Noble

Desperately seeking a husband . . .
Suzette is not like other heiresses; she wants a poor husband, a gentleman who will be so grateful for her dowry that he will allow her access to it so that she can pay off her father's gambling debts. When this alluring beauty encounters Daniel Woodrow—handsome, titled, single . . . and even more impoverished than she could have hoped for—it seems Suzette's wildest dreams have come true.
But Daniel has not been truthful. Tired of being accosted by an endless stream of vapid coquettes and their fortune-hunting mothers, Daniel has decided to plead poverty to stop them in their tracks. Yet here is a most refreshing and delectable lady, who claims to be thrilled by his penury. Now all Daniel has to do to find true happiness is to keep a little white lie alive . . . while avoiding a villain who's determined to prevent this union by any means necessary.

My Thoughts
 I was introduced to Lynsay Sands by a friend who recommended me her Argeneau Vampire Series. After the first one, I was hooked and bought the entire rest of the series. I was a little iffy at first starting the Madison Sisters Trilogy. I've noticed that some authors excel at specific genres, and some authors can be versatile e.a. Kresley Cole. I haven't read any of Ms. Sands highlander books either. I was blown away by the first book. The whole evil twin thing was totally awesome. This book takes place during and a bit after the first one ends. The characters are just so likeable and easy to relate too (even if they're based in a different time period.) There were definitely quite a few laugh out loud moments. I can relate to Suzette on the fact that I do not possess a filter and just blurt stuff out. (It's gotten me into trouble over the times.) Great book, Great author. I definitely recommend this to historical lovers.
