Fortune's Gamble by Diana Bold
This is an intriguing, entertaining, amusing and sweet. Christian is impulsive, caring, protective, uncertain and very likable. Rebecca is bold, hopeful, naive and intelligent. Christian is a bastard who's father never acknowledged nor supported. Andrew is his half-brother, and legal heir. When Christian sees his brother fall in battle he decides to switch identities knowing that he could get better medical attention as Andrew. Then he goes home and decides to try to keep being Andrew. His uncle, who is Andrew's butler, helps him with social expectations and advice. Neither knew that Andrew was betrothed, until she demanded to see him. Shocked that there was someone who knew Andrew so well, Christian rethought his position. But when she doesn't immediately call him out as an imposter, they go forward with the charade. Rebecca knows that something is different about Andrew, but thinks that the war changed him. It goes well until there are a couple of unforseen twists. I loved the storyline and the twists in it, and especially the ending.
I received a complimentary copy of this book from Booksprout. This is my honest and voluntary opinion of it.
