The story ... Review of The Beautiful Pretender by Melanie Dickerson

A servant girl is sent to the Lord of Thornbeck in place of her mistress, as he is conducting a search for a bride. She is, alas, eventually found out, but there are even worse plots afoot...such as the extremely basic ... books on tap: doing what I do
