Victorian romance can be so good. We have a tale that is similar to the Goose Girl, but instead of the servant forcing master to switch places, it's willingly consensual between male cousins who want to find good woman. I liked that we have two differing female cousins: one who is looking for a husband and the other who wants to remain single. I found it interesting it's just not more than thirty pages into the book and the hero has already has the "I will always be single" heroine to marry him and the heroine accepts. Yet, we find out that it's all an act between the two of them so the heroine can keep the man(a real pig) that has been selected by her father to marry off her back. Then that is where the real interesting stuff comes in, where the hero will woo the heroine slowly spending time with her, strengthening their bond and hopefully make their shame engagement real. It's so good because there is no sex. I love how they attempt to learn more about each other, but there is distance kept. I liked that part of this book was seeing the truth behind the mask. I gave a lot of brownie points to the hero because when the cousin of the hero states that he should just take the offer of sex with the heroine and the hero states, "I could never dishonor her,". I was over the moon with the hero's declaration. He cares for the heroine, thinking more with his head and heart than with his groin, which is more than I can say for other Harlequin heroes. I loved how there were two other romances on the side. Then the heroine honesty and boldness. I loved the end with the girls. And that's all you're going to get because I would hate to ruin the fun for you. This is a great book to read.
