Praise for A Little Deception
I enjoy a good historical romance, and this was a pretty good one. Full of scandal, drama and true love. I couldn’t put it down. The development between Rampton and Rose makes for a great love story and I love to hate Helena. If you like historical romance, then you should definitely get this one. Nickinic – Ebooks Galore
The lead character – Rose – finds herself embroiled in a deception of her own making, that ultimately threatens to thwart her true desire. The deception – undertaken to protect the family from the careless behaviour of her sister-in-law Helena – even once know by the object of her desire, haunts the relationship, causing misunderstanding between Rose and her dashing new husband. Helena is angered by Rose’s good fortune and sets out to muddy the waters further, culminating in putting Rose’s life at risk, but as in all romantic tales, the dashing husband realises what is happening, just in time to save the day.
This is easy reading, but the story doesn’t suffer for that. SunnyB (Somerset, UK)
