REVIEW

"fun action packed romantic suspense"

In 1813 Liar's Club agent Dalton Montgomery pretends to be a dandy as he poses as popular satirical cartoonist Sir Thorogood. Dalton wants to expose the real artist whose works scorn the country's aristocracy especially the leaders, drawing caricatures that make them look inane. Clara Simpson takes exception with Dalton masquerading as the popular Sir Thorogood since she knows that she is the genuine article.

Clara decides to "expose" the impostor by trapping him into displaying his talent. She follows him everywhere and he believes she's a lovesick fruitcake. As Dalton doubts the assignment as being overkill, he begins to fall in love with his shadow. However, he remains unaware that if he unmasks Sir Thorogood he will jeopardize his talented beloved.

THE IMPOSTOR is a fun action packed romantic suspense with agent vs. amateur counter agent as the prime plot. The battle to expose one another takes the audience on a wild ride as each one trumps the other though Dalton is ignorant that it is Clara he is chasing (in love too). Celeste Bradley pens a charming Regency tale that will prove to fans that this author is the real thing.

SUMMARY

Secrets and seductions are his specialty...

WHO IS THE IMPOSTOR?

It isn't easy moving about Society dressed like a dandy--especially when one is a ruthless spy. But that's precisely the latest mission for Liar's Club master Dalton Montmorency. Dalton is posing as Sir Thorogood, the elusive cartoonist whose scathing political caricatures have all of London abuzz. The true identity of Sir Thorogood is a mystery, and Dalton hopes that impersonating him will flush out the real menace before his cartoons do further damage to the government. Now, if Dalton could only find a way to get the irksome, yet oddly appealing widow Clara Simpson off his trail...

When Clara meets Sir Thorogood at a ball, she's certain he is an impostor--because she's the true Sir Thorogood. Secretly penning the cartoons under the frothy nom de plume, Clara hopes to save enough money so that she can leave her in-laws and find a new life. Now she is determined to reveal an impostor's identity--and that means doing some undercover work herself. But pretending to be someone you're not has a funny way of making a woman do things she wouldn't ordinarily dream of--even if it drives her straight into the arms of her devilishly handsome adversary!
