Would recommend this product.
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.

Love In Disguise
Location: Mesa Arizona
Date: July 12, 2019
This is a new author and I loved her style of writing and the way she developed her characters. A lovely story set in England’s Regency Era about a Viscount and woman, William and Marion, who really have no use for each other but through necessity on William’s part start a courtship and eventually fall in love. But everything is no smooth sailing for this couple. There is romance, mystery and heartbreak involved. I was very entranced and didn’t want to put the book down. I will definitely be looking for more books by Anneka Walker. I received a complimentary copy of this book from the publisher. All views are my own.

(4.5 Stars) William and Marion have a history - he's never paid her much attention and she despises him - but a test concocted by William and his mother proves that Marion is the woman for him and he sets out to win her over. I adored that premise of enemies-to-lovers and my stomach tingled with anticipation in these character interactions. I was left wanting more and desperately awaiting their next meeting. Although William is a dandy, he has layers of personality and characteristics that are waiting to be uncovered. Marion is a sweet girl with a spicy, sassy side that William tends to draw out. They each have individual reasons for agreeing to this marriage and I love how their troubles and trials bring a recognition of true feelings and desires. A few of the storms they weathered were a little abrupt, coming with no warning, but all were well written. I only wished for a slightly more developed romantic experience because I felt that some things were skimmed over and I was immersed and wanted more details. Overall, a great debut and I'm looking forward to more! Content: mild romance (kissing)

I read a lot of clean Regency romance novels--there's just something about the time period that appeals to me. When I was given the opportunity to review Love in Disguise by Anneka R. Walker I couldn't pass it up even though I wasn't familiar with the author. Walker captured my attention right off and made me feel for Marion with her performance at the musicale. Her shattered confidence was so sad, yet understandable. And, I think most people can relate to holding a grudge against someone for at least a small amount of time. I wasn't drawn to William initially. I would have appreciated deeper character development for him to more fully understand his facade, but he did grow on me as the story progressed. On the whole I liked the idea of the story, but would have loved more attention to the latter half. Some of the resolutions came on very quickly and needed more hashing out. While I don't see myself reading this story again, I would give the author another try. 2.5 Stars *I received a complimentary copy of this book. All opinions expressed are my own.
I loved so many things about this book, it's a page turner!

I love finding new to me authors who write great books! Anneka R Walker has written such a fun one in this Regency Romance novel. I loved so many things about it. And it was a fairly quick, easy read for me. Let’s start with the characters. I loved Marion. She hasn’t been the kind of girl to like much attention. And that doesn’t change in the story, even though she ends up getting plenty of attention for being around Lord William Everton. I felt a bit bad for her character in several places, it seems that Lord Everton is always helping her to feel awkward in social situations. And she despises him for it. That’s always fun! I love that the reader gets to see things through William’s perspective too. It’s always fun to see how one situation can make one character feel a certain way and the other character is completely oblivious. That’s how it is with William, he has no idea why Marion seems to despise him. He only knows that she does. And when he decides that she’s the one for him – that only makes the whole plot line more fun. The plot of this one is a fairly straight forward love story. There are many bumps in the way however, making this one a page turner for me. I didn’t want to put it down! You’re going to want to read this one!
I couldn't put it down!

I absolutely loved this book and could not put it down! This regency era set novel about Marion and Lord Everton swept me away. I found myself wanting Marion to find just the right man for her and then when Lord Everton set his sights on her I was dumbfounded! How would this unlikely pair work or could this unlikely pair work? And what was Lord Everton really all about? Was there more to this man than meets the eye? There were so many ups and downs that Walker kept me on this thrilling roller coaster ride I never wanted to get off from! She seamlessly wove a story of not just love, but heartbreak, scorn, and deceit. WARNING: do not stop this book if you do not have time to finish it in one sitting! You won't be able to stop reading or thinking about it! Go, run, and one-click Love in Disguise, you will not be sorry!!! I received a complimentary copy of this book. All thoughts and opinions are my own.

I love it when I finish a book and feel like I’ve just read the most amazing book ever, and I had one of those moments when I finished Love in Disguise. This book is written by a new Covenant Communications author, Anneka R. Walker. I am so glad that they published this book, because not only is the title awesome, but the story in general is as well. The characters were developed really well and I love the dialogue! You can’t read this book without squealing in delight as you read, or in my case listen to, the encounters between Marion and William. Of course, I have a new found love in William and I’m so jealous of Marion. Especially when the payoff comes to play in the book. If you can’t tell yet, then let me spell it out for you. I HIGHLY recommend this book to all romance readers out there.
