    quirky romance

    This is a voluntary review of an advanced copy. Somewhat cute romance, but certainly not love at first sight. Alfred was opposed to marriage and devised a scheme with his friend to sound like he was carrying on with an actress to turn off the young lady his mother wanted to match him with. Sarah was attracted to Alfred and willing to see if they matched until she found out he was promised to an actress then she flirts with Alfred's best friend. This is part of what I didn't like about this book. After flirting with Potts, he falls for her and asks for her hand in marriage and she rather coldly turns him down. Alfred finds that Sarah has many traits that he likes as well as very competitive in games so they really do suit. Not sure why she would want to get married to someone with a gambling problem! Also, Sarah never found out that Alfred's mother is paying off his gambling debts by pursuing her, that would be a big problem for me! Not a lot of depth to any of the characters but if you like a quick, quirky romance to pass the time, this book will pass the time.

    Delightful

    A Christmas House party with a determined mother set to have her son married to a particular lady. Getting them together was the easy part but having him actually pay attention to her was another matter. Lady Sara Milton had turned down numerous proposals because none of the gentleman have touched her heart. She had always been attracted to Alfred Wickham, but alas had never met him. When his mother invites her family to attend the Yuletide festivities she is very excited. It seems his mother even wants to match them up! But Alfred is determined to get away from his mother's machinations, even though he has not met the young lady. He sets his friend Potts to discourage her and make him seem very, how do I say, unsavory! But when he does spend time with her, his opinion starts to change, but how to convince her he is not what he has been portrayed? A sweet delightful story that held my attention and made me only want to read more!

    A Fun Story

    Alfred Wickham is perfectly happy gambling and living the life of a rake. His Viscount father thinks at age 30 it is time for Alfred to marry and settle down. His mother agrees and believes Lady Sarah Milton is the perfect woman for Alfred. The two families are gathered for a holiday house party during which they attempt to bring Alfred and Sarah together. The mamas and papas are determined to make it happen. Alfred, who needs a smack to the back of his head, is determined to resist. He has even brought a friend, Lord Pottinger, along to proclaim his unworthiness for marriage. Sarah is willing for them to get to know each other and see how things turn out. Potts does his job very well. Sarah is no longer interested in Alfred. Well, he got what he wanted, but he begins to think maybe he has made a mistake. Now what is he to do? His Lady Deceived is a fun and happy holiday story with wonderfully entertaining characters and a few surprises. I recommend it. I received an ARC of this book from the publisher via NetGalley. My review is voluntary.

    Will he be able to her in time?

    What a man might when after playing a dangerous game he realizes he has fallen for the woman he wanted to alienate himself from. I loved the first book from this series, a story about two persons hurting one another by keeping secrets which leaded to misconceiving and distrust. Here the situation is similar but it is a voluntary game on the hero side to avoid the parsons trap. Alfred Wickham is not a bad man but he is more interested in his sole pleasure and patterning in the ton society amusements. Why he resorts to this masquerade. Sarah Milton has always had a weakness for Alfred but he does even know she exists. And now she learns he is the very kind of man she must avoid at all costs. She longs for a loving husband and motherhood but as years are passing on her, she knows she is reaching an end. That’s how Alfred finds him trapped when he comes to understand he drove out the one woman who makes his heart beats faster. It was a fast and short read about two persons who must find past their own misconceptions how to see the other on its better side. A 4 stars read.

    Great short story

    His Lady Deceived is the second book in the Deceived Series and is a great addition to the series. It is a short, sweet romance and great if looking for a fast paced read. Lady Sarah Milton has had several proposals but has refused them all. She has been attracted to Alfred Wickham but he doesn’t know she exists. She jumps at the invitation to spend Christmas at the home of the Duke and Duchess of Radcliff, Alfred’s cousin. When Alfred learns what his mother has planned, he drafts his friend, Lord Pottinger (Potts), to attend the house party. Alfred asks Potts to tell Sarah all about his wicked ways, but once Sarah’s attention is diverted to Potts, he realizes the mistake he has made. Can Alfred gain Sarah’s love after all he has done to discourage her attention? This was a fun book to read and I hope to see Potts HEA in the next book.
