A Dangerous Deception by J. M. Jeffries

Hello, and welcome back! Hope youīre getting to enjoy Indian Summer where you are. The weather hereīs been lovely, and weīre trying to fit in as much outdoor work as we can before itīs too miserable out. However, I am still reading plenty of new romances, and I have three to share with you this week.

First up is Susan Kingīs Sword Maiden (Signet). Her latest Scottish romance has Eva MacArthur betrothed to a greedy man and in need of help from the man she loves, Lachlan MacKerron, whoīs sworn off women. But he canīt refuse Eva, and Eva still longs for him, despite the promise made to her betrothed. If you love a lot of history with your romance, youīll enjoy this one. Lachlan is a fine hero, one to give you daydreams of kilts and braw Scotsmen. Iīm giving this one three and a half of Cupidīs five arrows.

Next up is J. M. Jeffriesī A Dangerous Deception (Indigo). Cher Dawson and Luc Broussard have a history: when they were in college, they thought theyīd be together forever, but someone wanted them parted. Now Lucīs mother is dead and he wants Cherīs help in proving the guilt of his late motherīs husband. Theyīre still total opposites, but Cher has kept the secret of why she left all those years ago, and Luc still believes she betrayed him. Of course, they donīt want each other, right? Ha! They seem to be the only ones who donīt see it for a while. Great suspense and a very convincing romance here. But I expect no less from Ms. Jeffries. This one earns four arrows.

The last book this week is Under Suspicion from Rachel Lee (Warner). Anna Lundgren is ready to reap the success of her first museum opening, but someone else has other plans for her, stealing one of the pieces from the collection and killing a guard--except it looks like Annaīs the culprit. Gil Garcia is the detective in charge of the homicide investigation, and heīs not quite convinced of her guilt. Great suspense twists here, and Gil is a hero to keep. I wasnīt as wild about Anna, but couldnīt quite pinpoint why. Iīm giving this one three arrows.

Until next week, happy reading!
