Historical Romance

USA Today bestselling author brings you a scorching hot, second-chance romance with a warrior on a mission of revenge & the woman who might just make him give up everything…even his life.

First he loved her. Then he abandoned her. Now he’s the only one who can save her. 

A dashing con man on a mission of revenge…
Irishman Kier once served as the ‘Piper,’ enticing wealthy, unscrupulous men into dealings with other wealthy, unscrupulous men.  It was a lucrative way of life for a man without a conscience, and he was very, very good. But now he’s on a mission of revenge, and the men who once betrayed him are about to pay.  He’s planned for everything, from how he’ll lure them in, to how he’ll hammer the last nail into their coffins. He’s planned for everything. Except the one woman who can bring the whole thing crashing down around him.

A woman in peril with secrets to protect… 
Sophia Darnly is stunned by the reappearance of the outlaw lover who abandoned her years ago.  And furious.  And desperate.  Fleeing with a document that contains the most damning details about the wealthiest men in England, she’s being hunted by dangerous men, and has no choice but to do the most dangerous thing of all: turn to Kier to save her.

A game that could get them both killed 
Time has not erased Sophia from Kier’s heart, nor tamed her fiery spirit. But Kier is on a mission of revenge, and can’t allow even the woman he once loved to stop him.

When Sophia forces herself into Kier’s schemes, he has no choice but to join forces.  Posing as a wealthy shipping widow and her agent, the duo set a trap for their targets, but the coals of their rekindled passion burn hotter than either of them could have imagined. And when they discover they, too, are the targets of a deadly deception, the fate of their love, and of England itself, lies in the balance.

Romantic Times’ K.I.S.S. Award, Best Historical Romance Hero of the Year

Author’s Note:

Deception is a little different from a typical medieval romance.  It’s got an outlaw hero working a long con against some Very Bad Men who tried to destroy him. But it does have smugglers and sword fights and sexytimes galore!  It also has gowns and grand feasts, trickery and corruption on a high scale, and one desperate woman who won’t take no for an answer, not even from the man she once loved.
