In the gaming hells of eighteenth century London, orphan Caro Worth is leading a double life. By day she plays a proper gentlewoman on the lookout for a wealthy husband. By night she plays the infamous Angelica, her fictional half-sister with a talent for cards and an ability to finance the life her respectable self has built. An introduction to a rich Marquis brings marriage and security within Caro’s grasp…until the arrival of the unpredictable and totally ineligible Mr. Tobias Felton.

Dismayed by Felton’s persistent appearances, shocking frankness, and enigmatic green eyes, Caro watches helplessly as he comes closer than anyone to guessing her secret, but when complete and utter ruin threatens, she finds that Felton’s suspicions just might become her salvation. As the walls she has built to protect herself crumble down around her, Caro learns that no matter how careful your plans, life and love have a habit of falling quite spectacularly out of control!

In Fool Me Twice, Caro Worth is an orphan in eighteenth century London, and she’s leading a double life. By day, she plays the proper woman, on the lookout for a wealthy husband. By night, she plays the infamous Angelica, her supposed half-sister with an uncanny talent for playing cards, and the ability to finance the life her day version of herself has built. Caro has prospects of marrying a Marquis, which would settle her for life… But then an unpredictable and ineligible Mr. Tobias Felton shows up, and pulls the rug from under her feet.

Felton is everything she can’t have. Persistent, frank, and worst of all, he’s suspicious, and very close to finding out her secret. But his suspicions might just rescue her in time when everything she’s built threatens to collapse around her.

I loved this book, the premise, the characters, the historical setting, everything. The writing was phenomenal, and hooked me from the start, making me wonder what would happen next, and how Caro would fare with her risky double life. Tobias Felton was such an intriguing and mysterious character too, and Caro had so much personality and was very daring.

Fans of historical fiction will no doubt love this book.
