    Wonderfully Descriptive!

    Deceived by Desire by Marie Force is book two in her Gilded historical romance series. Aubrey Nelson arrives at his family home in Newport, Rhode Island to prepare for a visit from his friends the Duke and Duchess of Westwood. He encounters the new Irish housekeeper, Maeve Brown, and is immediately enamored. He promises to protect her but is he aware of all that he may have to protect her from? Marie Force continues her success in the historical romance genre. I enjoyed Deceived by Desire and give it 4 out of 5 stars. I recommend this book to all readers of historical romance. Those who dislike descriptive sex scenes will want to give this one a pass. My thanks to Kensington Books and NetGalley for the opportunity to read an advance copy of this book. However, the opinions expressed in this review are 100% mine and mine alone.

    Great Story

    The early 20th century was a fascinating time in history with so many advancements taking place. But the class differences were still there and Marie Force takes us into the romance that happens between a wealthy American and the housekeeper of his family's seaside cottage. Set at the shore in Newport, the hero Aubrey goes ahead to the cottage to make sure everything is ready for so the important guest soon to arrive, He finds much more than a house in upheavel though.. The lovely Irish housekeeper, Maeve Brown. They form a friendship and there is a great spark between them that starts them on a journey. Romance, suspense, a little mystery and a dragon of mother that is best to stay away from if possible! Once I started I could not put is down and I look forward to the next in this wonderful series!

    Enticing second story in the series.

    I loved the beautiful writing this fantastic author always delivers in this second historical romance offering. The characters are intriguing with the downtrodden Maeve running from her past of nobility lost and tragic secrets. She leaves Ireland with her secrets and finds a job as the housekeeper to the rich in Newport Rhode Island and first encounters her employer son, the ever endearing Aubrey. He is smitten with the lovely Irish housekeeper at first sight and seems unable to control his growing feelings to the dismay of Maeve. She knows there is no hope for a relationship with Aubrey, at least one she is not willing to consider. There's too much on the line to risk her livelihood and reputation and expose her secret past. Aubrey fell really fast and I didn't feel the connection between the lovers until later in the story. The build up was captivating and the potential was there for a thrilling climax but it kind of fell flat and there was some repetition. I did like the upstairs/downstairs feel of the story with Aubrey's snobby, horrible mother and the class division. My heart went out to Maeve with her struggles and I swooned over Aubrey with his sweetness to Maeve. They're a terrific couple. I always love to read this author stories with her magnificent storytelling and wonderful characters and this one was no exception. I just wanted a little more but I'm look forward to the next story in this series. I voluntarily reviewed an ARC. 3.5 stars
