The review --
She's supposed to marry one man, then another shows up, using the same name. What's a girl to do. And that's the beginning of this wonderful Christmas romance novel that has a thrilling ending.
The man whose marriage proposal she accepts, wasn't the man who the name belonged to. But on her wedding day, in search of the phony, the real Duke shows up. It's a great story, fine characters, and I loved it. Fine piece of writing here in this book, and I recommend it very much.
