  • Just Ask!

    A Duke Deceived, the first book in the Deceived Series, is a well-written story with a familiar lesson: If you want to know something, Just Ask! Richard and Barbara are wonderful characters. They are both kind, caring, and (usually) quite honest. They are perfect for each other, or will be when they get to know each other. In her attempt to protect her cousin’s secrets, Barbara causes Richard to suspect she is in love with another. Rather than approaching her about his thoughts, he sulks, drinks, and stays out with his friends (mature, huh?). Not everyone is happy about the two of them being together, and their behavior make it easy for them to make trouble. They had a quick, but good start to build on. Can they come to trust each other and to share they feelings? Time will tell. A Duke Deceived was Cheryl Bolen’s first published book. It was great start for her career and a great start for the new series. I recommend it and look forward to the next book. I received an ARC of this book from the publisher via NetGalley. My review is voluntary.

  • When trust is tested

    This is a beautiful tale about two persons who were destined to be together but hurt each other by their inability to communicate their feelings and not clear their own misconceptions. To add to their burden, their journey to love was littered by protagonists who sought only to torn them apart . This story shows how with time and by instilling slowly tiny bits of this and that plus keeping, even if it is innocent, things secret, it can destroy a fragile truce and it brings the worse in anybody even a lover. At time I was upset by both, she for keeping secrets from her husband that appear as if she betrayed him and him for thinking the worst first without even questioning his wife’s faithfulness. Bonny and Richard are two very likable characters, they both are kind and honest but because of a minor gesture at the beginning of their relationship, everything is put in jeopardize and any new detail is turned the wrong way as they are unable to clear the water and have a real talk. Why they became easy prey for all those who want to split them up and their task is even easier as they are so easily deceived. They were lucky despite their flaws and failure to trust the other, as they are both guilty, to be surrounded by caring people whom will help straighten things for them, as Bonny and Richard are blind to another’s sentiments. My only complain is the lack of epilogue and the rushed conclusion. Sure Richard handled his marriage poorly and confined Bonny to their home, a bit of grovel would have been nice but Bonny by not acknowledging her supporting her cousin and doing things behind Richard’s back has only fueled his deception. Hopefully, the reedition of this book announces its as being the first in a series, so we will get a kind of epilogue with the next book to come. I was provided a copy by Netgalley and the publisher Harpen&Appleton, but I purchased my own copy and here is my true and unbiased opinion.

  • Great book

    A Duke Deceived was the first book this author had published and it will also be the first of the Deceived Series. It was a well written book and easy book to read. There was a lot of characters introduced in the book and hopefully they will have their own HEA. This book is Richard, the Duke of Radcliff, and Bonny Barbara Allan. Richard was enchanted with Bonny Barbara Allan’s beauty when he saw her across a ballroom. Bonny’s mother is seriously ill and wants to see Bonny settled. Once they are married and return to London, things begin to fall apart for them. There are so many confidences to be kept between characters that eventually the lack of communication between Richard and Bonny lead to many misunderstanding. I recommend this book and can’t wait to read the next book. I voluntarily read and reviewed an ARC of this book. All thoughts and opinions are my own.

    Thanks for your feedback!
