A DARING DECEPTION by Laura Trentham
A Daring Deception by Laura Trentham, book six in her Spies and Lovers series is another wonderful read; filled with amusing banter, magnetic attraction, chemistry, and subterfuge.
Simon, the Duke of Bellingham, knows his sister is trying her best to find a wife for him; it’s the only reason he can think of for her upcoming house party. After atoning for his wild, misspent youth, Simon has become a sober, respected member of Parliament, and a well-sought after bachelor. Simon is determined to marry a lady he loves; like his parents and sister. Avoiding the eligible women at the party might be part of Simon’s plan, he just never expected to encounter the warmth, wit, and teasing tongue of his unusual neighbor.
Jessica Tremaine never forgot Simon and the kindness he showed her when she was a young girl, newly arrived in England, with a bit of a temper; standing up to her stepfather’s cruelty. Unexpectedly crossing paths with him she leads him to believe she a lady’s maid and not the girl from the trouble aristocratic family nearby. She truly believes he doesn’t remember her and dreams of a future far away from her loathsome stepfather.
Upon learning the truth about Jessica, Simon rides off to London, nursing a broken heart. Yet, when Jessica finds herself in London and in major danger, she seeks out the one man she trusts; even if she believes he doesn’t trust her. Simon, still caring for Jessica, willingly becomes her knight-in-shining-armor, helping her out of her dilemma.
I really loved reading this book and had a great deal of trouble putting this book down. Ms. Trentham wrote a beautiful love story that is not to be missed. She provided a tale rich with kindness, magnetic attraction, off the charts chemistry, amusing conversations, and endearing characters giving Jessica and Simon the opportunity to find a true and forever love. I highly recommend A Daring Deception to other readers.
