From the Critics
Melinda Helfer
October is a month to celebrate with Signet. Regencies including another quality work from Edith Layton. False Angel (4+) is an utterly fascinating character study of two cousins interested in the same rakish lord. Absolutely no one has created and disguised a more perfect scheming adventuress than Ms. Layton. Unusual twists abound to keep the reader continually guessing up until the last moment. Fans will be happy to encounter several of the characters from earlier books as well. Ms. Layton has truly established herself as a master of the genre.
