Heiress without a Cause by Sara Ramsey

Goodreads Description:

One title to change his life… 

A disgraced son with a dark reputation, William “Ferguson” Avenel is content to live in exile – until his father dies in the scandal of the Season. With rumors of insanity swirling around them, his sisters desperately need a chaperone. Ferguson thinks he’s found the most proper woman in England – and he won’t ruin her, even if he secretly desires the passionate woman trapped beneath a spinster’s cap. 

One chance to break the rules… 

Lady Madeleine Vaillant can’t face her blighted future without making one glorious memory for herself. In disguise, on a London stage, she finds all the adoration she never felt from the ton. But when she’s nearly recognized, she will do anything to hide her identity – even setting up her actress persona as Ferguson’s mistress. She’ll take the pleasure he offers, but Madeleine won’t lose her heart in the bargain. 

One season to fall in love… 

Every stolen kiss could lead to discovery, and Ferguson’s old enemies are determined to ruin them both. But as their dangerous passion ignites their hearts and threatens their futures, how can an heiress who dreams of freedom deny the duke who demands her love?

My Rating:

My Review:

The female main character, Madeline, has always followed societies rules but also has a passion for theater.  She LOVES to perform.  After almost 30 years, she finally get's her chance to perform even if it's under the disguise of a french widow.  However nothing ever goes 100% well and first a mysterious Duke, Ferguson,  comes back into London and seeks her help in assisting his sisters debut then that same Duke arrives to her last show which is the spark to the fuse that causes a whole lot of other issues.

Mad, as she is called by Ferguson, is a very brave passionate woman but she tries to hide herself to fit into society.  Ferguson is the only person it seems to see her for who she truly is and it makes him feel things he'd rather not feel.

This story is about the characters discovering who they are, and what love is worth in their lives.  I really loved how it was written and the little twists in the plot that made it just more amazing to read!  I will definitely be picking up the second in the series!
