A DARING DECEPTION
Spies and Lovers, Book 6
Can a deception led to love?
Simon, the Duke of Bellingham dreads his sister’s house party, especially as her matchmaking hat is firmly in place. Attempting to atone for a misspent youth, Simon has become a sober, respected member of Parliament—and a hunted bachelor. His plan to avoid the minefield of ambitious mamas and their too-innocent daughters is cast aside when he happens across a lady whose beauty is only enhanced by her wicked, teasing tongue.
Lady Jessica Tremaine never forgot the kindness the duke displayed during a dark day when she was a young girl. Unexpectedly crossing paths once again, he assumes she is a lady’s maid and not the lady from a troubled house and family. It’s clear he doesn’t remember her, and for a time, she allows herself to dream of a future away from her despicable step-father.
When Simon learns of her lie, he retreats to London to nurse what he suspects is a broken heart. Yet, when Jessica finds herself in danger, there is no one else she can turn to for help. She is a pawn in a game Simon is determined to win through fair means or foul.
Warning: Contains a lady who needs a knight-errant, a duke who needs a lady, and a deception that ignites a passion for the ages.
