The Gentleman’s Deception by Karen Tuft

About “The Gentleman’s Deception”

Renowned actress Ruby Chadwick, The Darling of Drury Lane, has long planned and prepared for her final performance. With exceptional beauty comes the unwanted attention of men, and after years of fending off odious suitors, Ruby is ready to leave it all behind in favor of a quiet life. The first step is to reclaim a piece of her past: her true identity as Lavinia Fernley. But leaving town unnoticed proves impossible, and in one desperate moment, she embarks on the greatest act of her life when she throws herself into the arms of a stranger to avoid recognition.

Lucas Jennings is shocked to find the stunning redhead in his arms, but something moves him to play along with her ruse when she calls him her husband. This charade marks the start of an unpredictable journey as he escorts the lovely Lavinia and her traveling companions to Primrose Farm, far from the glaring lights of London. Soon, the tables are turned when Lucas introduces Lavinia to his family—as his fiancée. Before long, their mutual deception begins to feel all too real. But when the truth of her past is revealed, will Lavinia’s dream of a happy ending slip through her fingers?

My Review

Karen Tuft is an amazing author.  I have enjoyed reading all of her novels and I am excited to introduce you to another heart-warming read.  This regency novel adds quite a spin to this time period that I found intriguing.

This is the story of Ruby and Lucas.  Misunderstanding is thrown at you from the beginning and the story takes you off along a creative path with twists and turns.  Sometimes the best things come in unexpected ways.  This is a story of an actress who left the stage to take on a role of her own.  It reminds me of my short life “on stage.”  Read about one of the best know parts that I was involved in many years ago by reading about it here.

It is hard to find a good, clean romance, yet this one fit the bill!  You will not be disappointed except for the fact that you might not get any sleep as this one will pull you right in and keep you turning the pages all night long.
