Deceiving the Duke of Kerrington

Ginny Hartman
Regency Romance
Book 1 of Ladies of Deception Series
Deceiving the Duke of Kerrington, Misleading Lord Martineau

"Knowing that her life would never amount to a fairytale she had quickly decided to never give love a second thought."

Hope Hilburn was happy in her life as a lady's maid to Noelle Parrish, despite her mistress's crazy antics.  Until one of Noelle's antics lands Hope in an awkward situation.  When Noelle runs off to marry an American she just met, Hope is left to take her place - literally.  Their uncanny similarity in appearance helps, but Hope has no idea how to be a lady.  Nor how to be engaged to a duke.  Without another real option, Hope embarks on Noelle's life and finds that perhaps won't be as bad as Noelle had thought.  Now if only Hope can balance the lie with the love growing in her heart.

My Opinion: This was a delightful beginning to a promising series.  I enjoyed the plot with its twist and turns and the plot thickened and changed along the way.  There were times I couldn't put it down.  The romance was lovely, if a bit sudden and left you at times sighing over the hero and at others heart broken for the heroine.  Fun side characters really filled in the story and made it come to life.  I'm excited to see that one of them will star in his own story next.  I wished it could have been longer and am anxious to read the next one.  Definitely recommended.

I was given a free copy of this book to review.  No other compensation was given.  The summary and review are 100% my own.
