The second book in the next historical romance series from USA Today Bestselling Romance Author Jess Michaels
Miss Celia Fitzgilbert’s grandfather has decreed she must marry a man with a title or he’ll never reveal her mysterious father’s identity. But her engagement to an Earl was already broken, leaving her steeped in scandal. She has all but given up until the reclusive Duke of Clairmonte returns to Society and sweeps her off her feet, a potential solution to all her problems.
But things are not so simple for the duke. Aiden is not comfortable with his position in Society, perhaps because he is a fraud. In truth, Clairmonte died months ago and the man playing him is a spy, bent on uncovering a dangerous secret. A flirtation with Celia, meant to help him fit in, quickly turns very real. But can Celia recover when the lies come out? Ad can Aiden keep them both alive long enough to even consider a future?
Length: Full-length novel
Sensuality level: Hot and steamy
This book can be read as a stand-alone novel, but is part of a series (Seasons)
A Spring Deception
This was the second book in the series and I have to say it was just as interesting as the first book.
Slow beginning but got better
I started reading this book and kept putting it down until about 5 chapters in. After that it moved smoothly. A little too many words spent on sex, which is an easy filler.
