The Captive Imposter Blog Tour ~ Review & Giveaway Details!

The Story:
Sent away for protection, hotel heiress Estella Everstone finds herself living undercover as a lady’s companion named Elle Stoneburner at one of her father’s opulent hotels in the mountains of Maine—the one she'd always loved best and always hoped to own one day, Everston. The one thing she doesn't like about the situation is that her ex-fiancé is in the area and is set on marrying someone else. Reeling from her feelings of being unwanted and unworthy, Estella reluctantly forms a friendship with the gruff manager of Everston, Dexter Blakeley, who seems to have something against wealthy young socialites with too much money, although they are just the kind of people Everston caters to.

When Estella finds herself in need of help, Dexter comes to the rescue with an offer she can't refuse. She sees no other choice aside from going back home to her family and accepts the position as companion to his sister. Throughout her interactions with Dexter, she can't deny the pull that's evidenced between them every time he comes near. Estella realizes that while she's been hiding behind a false name and identity, she’s never been freer to be herself than when she's with Dexter Blakeley. But will he still love her when he finds out she's Estella Everstone? She's not entirely sure.

My Thoughts:
Estella Everstone was initially the least favorite of the ladies in the Everstone Chronicles series, but she ended up being my favorite. She was more levelheaded and intelligent when it came to the men in her life -- no crazy love triangles for Elle! Since I've now had the time to mull the first three books over for a few days, I can honestly say that the third time is the charm. While The Hesitant Heiress had the most fabulous hero (I'm looking at you, Nathan) and The Bound Heart's Lawry was swoony too, The Captive Imposter has both a likeable heroine and a brooding hero. I would have liked the reason for Elle's charade to have come to a more dramatic conclusion as the other books did, but the romance was just right. The Captive Imposter brings together a story of love, redemption, and family in a neat little package. If you're a fan of romances with spiritual themes present throughout, you may want to download these books to your ereader!
