Forced by circumstances to find a way of survival for both herself and her younger sister after her male cousin inherited her father's title and fortune, Alyssa disguised herself as a fortune-telling gypsy to earn a living. Her customers, those among the ton, believe in her power yet one single man, a certain Mister Fortune, sees through her disguise. His presence has been most infuriating when he boldly hints her deception yet his absence is much missed by Alyssa. Put in a grandfather with a grand plan of getting his heir to marry a respectable lady from the ton while his grandson wants nothing to do with the older man, the romance between the hero and heroine did not develop easily.
I believe the story is meant to be lighthearted, perhaps even attempt to be humourous but while it has managed to make me laugh at one scene, the rest of the story has been fairly simple, most certainly not meant to be serious yet nothing hilarious or comical (other than that one scene). The changes in the characters' relationships have not been well-developed, especially the strain between Ian and his grandfather and how they overcome their problem. Overall if you are looking for a very quick, light reading, consider this book. It's one of the fastest reading I've done recently.
