Deception By: Kris Kennedy

Wednesday, January 16, 2013

A beautiful silk merchant and a dashing con man join forces in the second scorching medieval romance from Kris Kennedy.

Breaking and entering to reclaim her corrupt late father's ledger comes surprisingly easily to Sophia Darnly. But is it mere coincidence that her misdeed unexpectedly reunites her with Kier, the outlaw lover who abandoned her years ago? Time has not erased Sophia from Kier's heart, nor tamed her fiery spirit. She boldly insinuates herself into Kier's plan for revenge, believing the ledger will ensure her survival. But Kier knows that with or without the ledger, she's as good as dead.

Kier is a dangerous, intoxicating potion for Sophia, but he's on a mission of revenge, and can't allow even the woman he once loved to stop him. The danger mounts as they take on the leader of a powerful consortium who needs the fabled Darnly ledger—and all its damning details about the wealthiest merchants of England—to execute his nefarious plan. He also needs Sophia—the last witness to his scheme—dead.

The coals of their rekindled passion burn hot as Sophia and Kier set their trap. But when the duo discovers they too are the targets of a deadly deception, the fate of their love, and of England itself, lies in the balance.

Goodreads Summary

Right off the bat I knew that I was going to enjoy this novel; just look at/read the covers!  Sophia is being chased by seriously bad men that want information about the location of her corrupt father’s business ledger.  Someone else is after the ledger, too.  Sophia and Kier, the lover who left Sophia five years ago, break into the office where the ledger is being kept simultaneously and reach an agreement to work together.  Kier wants the ledger for different reasons than Sophia; he needs revenge on the men because they tried to kill him.  He lives with constant reminders of their acts of violence and will not rest until they are dead.  The harder the two try to stay away from each other, the closer they become. The romance in this novel is fantastic.  It moves the plot smoothly, flowing with the events and the scenes that take place.  I was never bored while reading Deception and think anyone who likes romance could enjoy this novel.  

Kris Kennedy’s Deception has all the traits of a good book.  Plot, action, and romance all wrapped up in one little novel that makes an excellent rainy or snowy day read.  I give this novel five out of five stars.
