"Dangerous Illusions"  by Amanda Scott was a good historical romance that involved 'women's rights or the lack thereof.'  During this period in history this author 'speaks clearly to the lack of rights women had.'  In this novel we are dealing with the lives of Lord Gideon Deverill and Lady Daintry Tarrant who if they had did as their families wanted would have never met 'due to a long standing family feud. This will definitely start trouble up between these two families.  Now, I will say you must pick up "Dangerous Illusions" to see what all the fuss is about. Just what was this feud about?  The characters for the most part were difference in that most of the men seemed to be simply mean...but not Gideon and Aunt Ophelia was very colorful.  You will pick this up from the read what I am referring to.  Be ready for many twist and surprises that will keep up turning the pages.  The laws that applied to 'husbands and wives' left me saying What?  What power the men had over the women only left me say OMG! This was definitely a challenging time at this period of time.  This left me thinking ... well, I will just recommend this read  to you ....for you to decide.
