  • 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.

  • Didn't care for the characters

    The Major's Faux Fiancee, by Erica Ridley, became available at booksellers in June of 2015. Fiancee is book 4 in the Dukes Of War series. I'm sorry to say that 2 stars is all I feel able to award this story. I didn't finish the entire story but did read the ending to know there really was a HEA. The heroine irritated me. She believes since everyone left her that she's destined to be alone. In that case, she doesn't have time for those around her, the masses must be saved. It's her duty and her legacy. I think she was actually selfish, not selfless. The hero isn't any better. He lost part of a leg in the war and now isn't a man anymore. He has a nifty prosthetic, state of the art for those times, but he's still in a funk. Our lady does get him out of the house, for the sake of a childhood friend, but he's kicking and screaming about it. He goes on and on about how he's not worthy, he's no longer a man. It's tiresome. They do eventually straighten up and get happy but it was too late for me to become invested. #TheMajor'sFauxFiancee #DukesOfWar #EricaRidley

  • 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!

  • The Major's Faux Fiancee

    It was a beautiful compassionate love match to bind two friends with similar outlook for humankind. Her kind heart healed and blessed her with real love.
