An Heir of Deception Beverley Kendall read online review & book description:


A man devastated by love

After three years of carousing and debauchery, Alex Cartwright, heir to the Duke of Hastings, has put his life back in order. Having embraced sobriety for two years, he has no intention of revisiting the past or risking his heart again. But the return of the very woman who introduced him to the darkest side of hell brings not only the painful, haunting memories of bittersweet love and abandonment, but the son he never knew he had...

A woman silenced by secrets

Threatened by the revelation of a secret that could destroy her family's place in society and forever tarnish a dukedom, Charlotte fled England on her wedding day five years ago. Now, although it appears that secret is safe, when Alex discovers her other secret-their son-Charlotte has an altogether different battle ahead. She must now fight one love to hold onto the other-the man whose touch still makes her burn, for the child who is her very world.

Praise for An Heir of Deception

"What drives this surprisingly deep novel are its revelations and their aftermath... Highly recommended for historical romance fans." ~ Library Journal, starred review

"Despite being overloaded with a million things, I just spent the afternoon reading An Heir of Deception. I loved it. Beverley gave me that lovely aching feeling in my gut for Charlotte and Alex. I really think this is her best book yet, and I can't wait to see what she comes up with next." ~ Courtney Milan, New York Times bestselling author.

"An Heir of Deception is a romance with heart. It is angst-ridden, deeply emotional and compelling. I could not put it down, and it left a smile on my face for hours." ~ Romance Novel News, Recommended Read!

    I just loved this story, from beginning to end. I couldn't put it down! I was already in love with Alex from the first two stories in the Elusive Lords series (sinful surrender and taste of desire), and I'm not at all surprised to have found his story my favorite. He suffered so much poor guy :( for his Charlotte lol. It was very emotional, filled with secrets, betrayal, deception, lies, redemption, atonement, hope, passion and finally so much love. It has been a long time since I've read a wonderful story such as this, and it will take me an even longer time to get over it! I'll give it 10 stars if I could.
  • Hopefully ill see

    By krystalterese
    It was by far the most wonderful love story i have ever had the chance to enjoy, i loved every moment and was unable to put the book down. However, To fully understand the book you must read miss kendall's previous novels. Please keep writing so I can keep reading. The suspense is killing me, for what else miss beverley Kendall can write about.
