BOOK SYNOPSIS

Noble Deception CoverTHE ONLY THING MORE DANGEROUS THAN A LIE IS LOVE.

Scotland 1455 – The Douglas clan is at war with their king. To protect his lands from confiscation, Lord John Douglas, the dying Earl of Kildrummond, must find an heir that doesn’t carry his name.

A landless knight, Lachlan Ramsay expects no more of life than battles, blood, and the occasional warm bosom. But when Lord John makes him his heir, Lachlan has a chance at something he never dreamt of—a home. There’s just one condition: He must marry the earl’s bastard daughter, the fiery, eccentric Moira MacInnes.

Lachlan has no desire for a headstrong, sharp-tongued wife. Moira has no need for an arrogant, too-handsome husband. To save Kildrummond they will marry and seek an annulment immediately upon the earl’s death. But deception is never simple, and passion once inflamed is impossible to ignore. Soon they will no longer be deceiving the earl but themselves.

EXCERPT

Bundled against the icy wind, Moira pushed her mare onward through the deteriorating weather. That morning, she had set her mind on making it to Glendalough by mid-afternoon (Highland wind be damned). She wanted to leave well before the evening meal to avoid being guilted into staying.

Except now, she was starting to regret her zeal; her new priority was to simply reach the castle’s walls before dark.

One way or another, she would confront Viscount Strathcairn. After a considerable amount of thought, she’d made up her mind.

She would accept his proposal—sweet heaven above, she couldn’t even think the words without gritting her teeth!

As much as she detested the arrangement, for however brief a time it may be, she had to concede that it was logical. As long as he was willing to uphold his end of the bargain and have the marriage annulled when the time came—and Moira had no choice but to trust that he would—then she would agree.

And why wouldn’t he make good on his promise? A man like Lachlan Ramsay wouldn’t want a plain, simple lass like Moira for a wife under more natural circumstances. Any more than Moira would want a vain, over-confident, self-important brute like him.

Vain he certainly was!

Well, he probably was, at any rate. All men that good looking were.

My review

 

This was a very well written book, you could tell by the dialogue and the building of the world, the author did some deep research. I have read many historical fiction books and can tell you in order to make a reader engage into a story, you have to have your facts right, this is not an easy genre to write for and I commend the author on hitting it right on spot.

Moira, the female lead of the book, is a strong-willed secure woman, which in many historical romances, women are defined as weak and helpless, I liked this, I liked it a lot. When she is approached from Lachlan to marry in order to help the clan, she cannot refuse. Although, neither one of them wish to be wed, they do it out of loyalty and promise to dismiss the vows, after they are certain Kildrummond will stay with the clan. But what happens when Lachlan realizes that he is developing deep feelings for Moira, will he still let her go, or will he ask her to stay?

 

My rating 5.0 out of 5.0
