Dangerous Deceit

                'A kiss reveals the secrets of the heart.'

Dangerous Deceit is a historical novel set in 1813 Regency England. Lydia Hetherington is uninterested in society balls or marriage, until her brother's friend, Marcus, Lord Sheldon, rides into her life to unseat her from her horse and unsettle her heart. An undercover spy for the government, Sheldon is equally unsettled by Lydia.

Complicated by a French spy, her best friend's unrequited love for Lydia's brother, James, and a traitorous villain, Lydia gradually finds her emotions stirred by Lord Sheldon. But what is his relationship with the beautiful, devious Lady Smythe and his part in an old scandal? Lydia faces an unwelcome suitor and danger before all deception is uncovered and love claims its reward.

The new version of Dangerous Deceit under my full name is now available from Amazon UK and Amazon US

"I finished Dangerous Deceit and was quite sorry; like finishing a favourite treat. Plenty of thrills and excitement and just the right amount of sexual attraction, without going over the top details."

"I just finished reading Dangerous Deceit and have to tell you I loved it and I'm now hooked on the Regency period."

I've just finished Dangerous Deceit and wanted to let you know how much I loved it. I feel incredibly
guilty for racing through the pages when so much hard work went into them, but I loved it and couldn't wait to see what happened. Feel a little sad now it's over to be honest

I was surprised just how much this old realist was swept along with the romance as well as the intrigue. Well done! I hope this is the first of many tales!” C.G-McM
Your characters are nicely drawn with a strong chemistry between Lydia and Sheldon. There’s just enough intrigue through the lights of their eyes that makes me want to get to know them better and find out what happens to them. I like Lydia’s feisty spirit and Sheldon’s subtle duskiness. Narrative flows with ease and grace. Well done.” S.B.
