Review: The Truth about Leo by Katie MacAlister



Can Dagmar flee Denmark
Dagmar Marie Sophie is a poverty-stricken Danish princess whose annoying royal cousin is about to have her stuffed away in a convent. When she finds a wounded man unconscious in her garden, she sees a way out of her desperate situation.

By Lying to Leo?

Leopold Ernst George Mortimer, seventh earl of March, and spy in the service of the king, finds himself on the wrong end of a saber and left for dead. He wakes up not remembering what happened...in the care of a beautiful woman who says she is his wife.
Back in London, Leo-with the help of his old friends the eccentric Britton family-sets out to unravel what he's forgotten... Is Dagmar truly the wonderful, irrepressible woman who makes his heart sing, or is she a dangerous enigma bent on his destruction?



Katie MacAlister has done it again! She has an easy style that lulls and entertains me and I just can't wait to gobble up the pages of her fun historical romances. The fact that she has added more likable characters to her menagerie has me as pleased as the fact that I get to catch up with some old friends in this story. Dagmar has the type of strength that I can only dream of when faced with such a desperate situation. Leo is a solid hero who might not be as charming and dashing as some leading men but there is something about him that just drew me in. I loved witnessing him banter with his new wife and deal with all the unconventional people in his life. I am a huge fan of this author and I cannot recommend her stories highly enough, she always leaves me with a huge smile on my face.
