    Great Debut into a New Genre!

    Duchess by Deception by Marie Force is the first book in her new Gilded series. Force is well-known for her romantic suspense and contemporary romance, so this historical romance is a departure for her. When Derek Eagan finds Catherine McCabe on his property he pretends to be Jack Bancroft, his property manager. Catherine is devastated when she learns that her beloved “Jack” is actually a duke. Derek must now find a way to win back Catherine’s love. Marie Force has done an admirable job in her first foray into the historical romance genre. I found Duchess by Deception hard to put down 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.

    Duchess is a winner

    I haven't read many historical romances therefore I'm not looking for a "history lesson", I'm looking to be entertained. Duchess by Deception totally fits the bill. I was excited to read Duchess as soon as Marie told her readers about its acquisition. Our Duke Derek Eagan is dreamy, smart, compassionate and a real visionary. Derek wants to find a wife who has more depth than most of those he's met in London. Catherine McCabe is an amazingly strong and sure heroine (like all those Marie writes). Catherine is fleeing from the man she's been promised to and is on a mission to find the lost key to a Hepplewhite chest left to her by her Grandmother and she won't let anything or anyone stand in her way. Derek finds Catherine digging on his land and their unlikely connection begins. They take us along, on what turns out to be a very bumpy but enjoyable ride. Duchess contains super hot, steamy scenes between Derek and Catherine as well as a secondary couple, that are not to be missed. A 5 star read in my books. Very excited to go to Newport, Rhode Island in the second "Gilded" story Deceived by Desire later this year.

    Fun Story!

    A delightful debut for this author's foray into historical romance! A case of mistaken, albeit, intentionally, identity when Catherine and Derek, the Duke of Westwood meet. She is on his land digging for a treasure dressed as a boy and he rescues her when she faints. Of course she thinks he is just the estate manager! The story takes off and so does the romance as there is an instant attraction. Love at first sight? Both have their issues but they manage to maintain their lies for a bit but eventually it all comes out. What I did not mention is that Cat despises the aristocracy because her father is trying to marry her off to a loutish Baron! She wants that treasure so she can be independent. There is a lot going on with this story and many secondary characters that come into play. Really enjoyed the intrigue and the romance and you will have to read to see how it comes out!

    Great characters!

    I jumped at the chance to read an ARC by Marie Force (thank you to Netgalley). I've seen the author's name a lot on line, but had not read her before. I didn't know till I had finished it that it was her first historical romance. What a treat! Her characters are wonderful...Catherine is full of spunk and determination and Derek is strong but willing to bend in order to win Catherine's trust and love. I really thought that it would just be another marriage of convenience in order for Derek to keep his title, but this took a different turn. It took a turn I really enjoyed. It was reversed into a marriage of convenience for Catherine, but with immediate attraction thrown in. The entire story flowed gently and kept me interested and turning the pages. Ms. Force did a fantastic job in transitioning to historical. I'm looking forward to more!
