Twin sisters, Ophelia and Cordelia Applegate may have looked alike in appearance but not in temperament. When impulsive Ophelia decided that the only way to achieve her dream of performing on stage was to run away from home to London - precautious Cordelia had no choice but to accompany and keep Ophelia out of trouble. Unfortunately, neither had thought beyond their escape from home and after arriving in London, near penniless, and without a friend to seek housing they managed to secure the aid of Ransom Sheffield, a handsome stranger who rescues them from an attack and secures them lodging with his cousin Giles, an equally hunky Vicar.

Growing up in Northern Yorkshire, twin sisters Ophelia and Cordelia Applegate are total opposites. Ophelia constantly gets into trouble as she has a tendency to leap into the fire while chasing her dreams; Cordelia is pragmatic thinking things through before taking action except when it comes to bailing out her sister from her latest disaster.

This was a fun romance given the reader will get two for the price of one! Olivia, Cordelia, Ransom and Giles are so very different and yet the romance between them is believable while at the same time romantic and entertaining. This is the first time I've ever read anything by Ms. Byrd and this was a fair effort. There are some slow...
