Wow! A Counterfeit Heart by K.C. Bateman is a phenomenal historical romance. Ms. Bateman has once again impressed me with her story-telling skills. She has delivered a well-written book and loaded it with outstanding characters. Kudos to Ms. Bateman on her characters and dialog. Sabine is a French counterfeiter known as Philippe Lacorte. She leaves France and travels to London and presents herself to Richard, Viscount Lovell. Their story is packed with suspense, action, humor and sizzle. I loved this book from the first page to the last and can't wait to read my next book by K.C. Bateman. A Counterfeit Heart is book 3 of the Secrets and Spies Series but can be read as a standalone. This is a complete book, not a cliff-hanger.
