    Really good

    This was every bit as good, if not better than the previous three books in this series. He is a man back from the war and missing part of his leg and she is a young lady who is being forced to marry within a month by her guardian or face being locked up. Of course she immediately turns to a man she knew when they were both younger and the story unfolds..... With many a good chuckle and surprises in store for the reader. Both characters have been written as strong people yet with obvious flaws and this makes this story very readable and most enjoyable. I hope you enjoy this book as much as I have.

    Stimulating and Passionate!

    Prior to the war, Major Bartholomew Blackpool saw himself as "the most infamous rake, the most imitated Corinthian." Then he went to war with his twin brother and friends. Upon his return to London he viewed himself as less than a man; not having his once perfect body, a cripple. He's a recluse in his home; hiding even from his servants and the pity he knows he'll see in their eyes. Then he receives the letter that forces him out of hiding. Daphne Vaughn lost her father, a vicar, recently. Now, her cousin and guardian, Captain Steele is determined she marry, quickly, and have a signed marriage contract even sooner! She's written the Major to beg for his help. Time is short; will he arrive on time and be willing to help? Stimulating and passionate romance. The characters made me laugh, cry and empathize with their plights. There are surprises along the way. Friendships are rekindled easing loneliness and pain. Many supporting characters deserve their own story. Enjoyable! Received book free for honest review.

    Another winner from Erica Ridley!

    THE MAJOR’S FAUX FIANCEE is more serious than I expected but so splendid, romantic and emotional; again Erica Ridley strikes gold. The Major’s return from the war has some really tragic elements, and the shadow of his dead twin brother permeates his whole existence, but there are plenty of amusing moments to lighten things up as Daphne and Bartholomew, childhood friends, pretend to be in love to save her from marriage to whomever her guardian chooses, or worse Bedlam! And what a fabulous cast of characters, so colourfully and precisely described by Ms. Ridley: Crabtree, Bartholomew’s butler and Fitz his valet, who admonishes the Major; Daphne’s guardian who is in fact a pirate, and one of my favourites: Sarah. The story is solid and original: I loved how the friends reconnect and how they face their own shortcomings. The writing is graceful, stunning in its simplicity and elegance; it is simply brilliant. THE MAJOR’S FAUX FIANCEE is my favourite book in this fabulous series so far, and this is saying a lot! And I am overjoyed that the next book will be Sarah’s. I could live in the world of <i> The Dukes of War </i> forever!

    About so much more than meets the eye.

    This story is about so much more than meets the eye. Erica Ridley did an exceptional job of writing a story about what a person perceives themselves to be. The Major's Faux Fiancee is a story that consists of central characters coming to terms with circumstances that neither can change. Major Blackpool comes home from war a change man both mentally and physically. Daphne is being forced into marriage even though she is not interested in becoming a wife. Ms. Ridley tackles serious problems that are faced everyday but manages to do so in such a delightfully entertaining way that the reader is mesmerized. Well done, Ms. Ridley well done. I received an ARC of The Major's Faux Fiancee for an honest review. The story speaks for itself.
