Deceived

Golden-haired Aurora Kimberly possesses only one passion--to live a simple life on the lush island paradise bequeathed to her family by the English Crown. Now her peace is about to be threatened by the appearance of Valerian Hawkesworth, Duke of Farminster, who has arrived to claim his own prize--an heiress promised to him in a marriage contract. But the free-spirited beauty has no intention of letting some pompous duke carry her off to cold and gloomy England. Her sister Cally, who has always yearned for the luxurious life of a duchess, agrees to switch places.

But can the sisters hope to play out this charade successfully? And what sweet revenge will the duke demand once he discovers the deception? Only a twist of fate and the power of an indomitable love can change the heart of a man scorned.  .  .

Reviews

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Deceived Bertrice Small created one of my favourite characters Skye O'Malley, but this latest novel that she has written is completely unbelieveable. The heroine Aurora finds out she enagaged to a duke and that he's coming to get her. In order to escape this unwanted marriage. She pawns off the duke to her sister Calandra who does want to be a duchess. Aurora soon learns to regret her rash decision. The rest of the novel was just one unbelieveable event after another. I wanted to go back to the bookstore and see if I could get my money back.
