Love in Disguise by Anneka R. Walker

Love in Disguise by Anneka R. Walker.
Audience/Genre: Historical Fiction, Clean Read.
Publication: June 1st 2019 by Covenant Communications.
Marion Watt is set to embark on her first London Season, and her parents have spared no expense to help her secure a suitable husband. Unlike most of the social-climbing young women in her position, Marion has no desire to marry hastily or for anything less than love. But when she learns of her mother's declining health, she knows she must keep an open mind and allow herself to be courted. What she does not anticipate, however, is that the attentions of the insufferable Lord William Everton will be placed squarely on her. He might be the most sought-after bachelor of the Season, but she sees in him nothing but a frivolous cad.
Until William inherits his father's title and seat in parliament, he must rely on his own devices to change the world. Dressing like a ridiculous dandy serves its purposes, but he is certain his newest disguise will help him find a wife to please his parents and further his own agenda. From among the glittering group of debutantes, William finds only one woman who passes his test. Unfortunately, the perfect choice is the only woman in all of London who despises him.

It’s always funny how you can despise someone and realize later that you really didn’t even know that person and all your reasons for despising them were not really who you thought them to be. I guess it just goes to show that we shouldn’t judge people! Also funny is how we have problems verbalizing our feelings or even acknowledging to yourself about your feelings!!

Once I started reading, I didn’t get up to do anything until I was done. I was curious how this would turn out. I was sitting in a need to be reupholstered furniture that was really lumpy but I just wanted to know what kind of person William really was and how Marion would learn who he really is!

Discovering people’s characters and what they stand for brings me to tears in books easily. I liked seeing William soften to Marion. The twists at the end; well I wasn’t expecting those. I loved seeing how family is important to both Marion and William.

If you like historical fiction, twists, loving families, righteous quests, gamblers, disguises, how one bad moment can make you want to stop sharing what you love, not saying what you are feeling, humor, falling in water, and finding love in a time where it wasn’t the norm to marry for love than this might be for you!!




Anneka Walker was raised by a librarian and an English teacher turned judge. After being fed a steady diet of books, she decided to learn about writing. The result was a bachelor's degree in English and History. When she isn't dreaming up a happy ending for a story, she's busy living her own together with her husband and adorable children.
