The Gentlemen's Deception by Karen Tuft
Rating: To Be Determined
Source: Received from publisher to review.
Genre: Regency Romance
Book Description: Renowned actress Ruby Chadwick, The Darling of Drury Lane, has long planned and prepared for her final performance. With exceptional beauty comes the unwanted attention of men, and after years of fending off odious suitors, Ruby is ready to leave it all behind in favor of a quiet life. The first step is to reclaim a piece of her past: her true identity as Lavinia Fernley. But leaving town unnoticed proves impossible, and in one desperate moment, she embarks on the greatest act of her life when she throws herself into the arms of a stranger to avoid recognition.
Lucas Jennings is shocked to find the stunning redhead in his arms, but something moves him to play along with her ruse when she calls him her husband. This charade marks the start of an unpredictable journey as he escorts the lovely Lavinia and her traveling companions to Primrose Farm, far from the glaring lights of London. Soon, the tables are turned when Lucas introduces Lavinia to his family—as his fiancée. Before long, their mutual deception begins to feel all too real. But when the truth of her past is revealed, will Lavinia’s dream of a happy ending slip through her fingers?
My thoughts: I love Regency Romance that has a few unique plot elements and twists and turns. This book fits perfectly with my preferences.
Actress Ruby Chadwick plans on a disappearing act from the theater to resume her life as Lavinia Fernley. She is sought after and has many admirers, but she wants freedom.
This book is entertaining. A romance that begins with deception. You know that there will be humorous moments, drama, the characters trying to figure out how to get out of the situation, etc. I love Karen Tuft's writing style. She knows how to keep my interest while laying down her plot and seeing it through to the end.
As you probably noticed in the rating, I haven't quite finished this book yet. I am enjoying it and plan on a full review in the near future.
