There are two other books in this series the one previously mentioned as being the 3rd book and a 4th called Passion and Pretense but at this point in time I have no plans to read them. Note: The title of the first book is also the title of a book by Maggie Robinson and it is also the 1st in a Quartet.
I no longer own this book, its on my Read Shelf because that seems more honest than saying I own it and putting on that shelf since although I didn't finish it I die read it at least partially.

Our two main characters are in a situation where they can't trust each other. Anthony finds he can't trust anyone. It actually made for a good story until midway when it shifted from an involved suspense thriller into an absurd Shakespearean comedy like Twelfth Night with all the absurd contrivances and twists and turns. However, despite the rather convoluted half of the book, it still was a fun read. I would go so far to say that I really This story started out with great intrigue and suspense. I would go so far to say that I really liked it but it was amusing. Nov 22, Nikilyn rated it did not like it.
This book started out better than the first in the series, but fizzled out near the middle and only got worse from there. It was painful to finish and I couldn't even bring myself to read the excerpt from the next book in the series.

Aug 08, Rhonda rated it it was ok Shelves: read. Not my favorite book. It was cute at times and I did lauggh at loud a few times, but I found myself annoyed with the main characters and I almost strained my eyes with all the the eye rolling I was doing as I read. The plot was decent but it was too predictable and at times too much to feel realistic. Feb 15, Linda rated it really liked it Shelves: romance. Temptress in Training is a related book, where Sophie Darshaw takes the stage, instead of being a supporting character.

A Damsel in Disguise (Video ) - IMDb
Edit Cast Credited cast: Dalan Musson Dane Cristiana Ladki Winter Taylor Schultz Bozhue Rest of cast listed alphabetically: Adam Freeman The serial heroines and Emma Peel are cited as providing inspiration for the creators of strong heroines in more recent times. Reflecting these changes, Daphne Blake of the Scooby-Doo cartoon series who throughout the series is captured dozens of times, falls through trap doors, etc. The film Sherlock Holmes includes a classical damsel in distress episode, where Irene Adler played by Rachel McAdams is helplessly bound to a conveyor belt in an industrial slaughterhouse, and is saved from being sawn in half by a chainsaw; yet in other episodes of the same film Adler is strong and assertive — for example, overcoming with contemptuous ease two thugs who sought to rob her and robbing them instead.
In the film's climax it is Adler who saves the British Empire , dismantling at the last moment a device set to poison the entire membership of Parliament. In the final scene of the Walt Disney Pictures film Enchanted the traditional roles are reversed when male protagonist Robert Patrick Dempsey is captured by Queen Narissa Susan Sarandon in her dragon form. In a King Kong fashion, she carries him to the top of a New York skyscraper, until Robert's beloved Giselle climbs, sword in hand, to save him.
A similar role reversal is evident in Stieg Larsson 's The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo , in whose climatic scene the male protagonist is captured by a mass murderer, locked in an underground torture room, chained, stripped naked, and humiliated when his female partner enters to save him and destroy the villain. Still another example is Foxglove Summer , part of Ben Aaronovitch 's Rivers of London series - where the protagonist Peter Grant is bound and taken captive by the Queen of the Faeries, and it is Grant's girlfriend who comes to rescue him, riding a Steel Horse.
In the film adaptation Frozen , Gerda and Kai are substituted with the sisters Anna and Elsa respectively. In computer and video games, female characters are often cast in the role of the damsel in distress, with their rescue being the objective of the game. Knight in her book Female Action Heroes as "perhaps one the most well-known 'damsel in distress' princesses in video game history ",  the Sultan's daughter in Prince of Persia , and Princess Peach through much of the Mario series are paradigmatic examples.
In the game the hero was Mario, and the objective of the game was to rescue a young princess named Peach. Peach was depicted as having a pink dress and blond hair. The princess was kidnapped and trapped in a castle by the villain Bowser, who is depicted as a turtle.
Damsel in Disguise
Princess Peach appears in 15 of the main Super Mario games and is kidnapped in 13 of them. Zelda became playable in some later games of the Legend of Zelda series or had the pattern altered. She serves as the series' damsel in distress. Gibson of GameSpy called Daphne "the epitome" as an example of the trope. From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia.
