WHEN OLD DECEPTIONS LEAD TO NEW DESIRES
Ross Carlisle, Earl of Spalding, has dedicated his life to serving his country. When he discovers secrets that could endanger England, he’s forced into an impossible situation—commit treason and race to London to clear his name before the crown turns against him. He’s prepared to abandon everything he possesses in order to protect England, including his life…until he crosses paths with a woman who’s keeping her own secrets.
Ten years ago, Grace Alden fled the only life she’d ever known in order to protect her son, only to come face-to-face with that past when Ross collapses on her doorstep. They strike a deal—she’ll help him travel to London if he helps her reclaim her son’s inheritance. But as old deceptions turn into new desires, will they be willing to sacrifice everything they hold dear in order to protect the people they love?

How the Earl Entices, the fourth in the Capturing the Carlisles, tells the story of Ross Carlisle, Earl of Spalding and Grace Alden. It is a fantastic tale, a fast-paced blend of intrigue, action, and romance. The chemistry between Ross and Grace sizzles. Their interaction provides some humor in a story that is filled with danger and drama (for both of them). Ross and Grace are strong, courageous, and protective of those they care about. They both have secrets they don’t want to share. Ross is a diplomat accused of treason. He needs to avoid capture to bring evidence to prove his innocence and stop the real traitor. Grace has lived a secret identity for ten years to protect her son. They come to an agreement that she will help him get safely to London if he will help her win her son’s rightful inheritance when he accomplishes his mission. What ensues is an edge-of-your-seat adventure with twists and turns and a couple of hold-your-breath moments. I think this is the best yet in the series. Don’t miss it.
I received an ARC of this book. I voluntarily reviewed it.

Ross Carlisle, Earl of Spalding and dedicated servant to England is in a bad situation. Captured and beaten so that he will give up secrets,, he is taken on a ship from France to England He gets his chance and jumps over the side. Of all places for him to come ashore, he ends up at Grace's cottage, where she has been hiding with her nine year old son and she recognizes him from the past. He is desperate to hide and get back to England and clear himself of the charge of treason.
I truly loved Ross and Grace. They both had secrets and each agreed to help each other on their different quests which really brought them together. The attraction between the two came off the page and the humor and witty dialogue was enchanting. But you will need to read to find out if the two make it to England and find happiness with each other. Part of a series, this can be read as a stand alone. But trust me, you will want to read them all!!
