THE HEIR AND THE SPARE
Genre: Historical Romance
Though somewhat predictable (the good twin/bad twin scenario has been done before), Rodale nevertheless pens a compassionate, sensitive and sensual love story about a young man fighting to be his own man and the young woman who follows her heart and shows him the meaning of love. This is a most satisfying book for a summer day.
Because of his ill father, five years go by before Devon Kensington leaves America and returns to England. When he attends a ball masquerading as his twin brother, Phillip, the Marquis of Huntley, American heiress Emilia Highhart, a vision of loveliness, falls into his arms. Emilia can't believe that the man she loves is a rake and a cad. Sometimes she feels something when she's with him and other times, nothing.
Then Emilia learns about the identical twins and that it's Devon who holds her heart. But Devon has demons of his own to fight when the old animosity he had for his twin returns. Devon is the spare, Phillip the heir, but their world is soon
