Publisher Description

Following the death of their father, Beth’s brother Richard returns from the army to claim his share of the family estate. However, Beth’s hopes of a quiet life are dashed when Richard, dissatisfied with his meagre inheritance and desperate for promotion, decides to force her into a marriage for his military gain. And he will stop at nothing to get his way.

Beth is coerced into a reconciliation with her noble cousins in order to marry well and escape her brutal brother. She is then thrown into the glittering social whirl of Georgian high society and struggles to conform. The effeminate but witty socialite Sir Anthony Peters offers to ease her passage into society and she is soon besieged by suitors eager to get their hands on her considerable dowry. Beth, however, wants love and passion for herself, and to break free from the artificial life she is growing to hate. She finds herself plunged into a world where nothing is as it seems and everyone hides behind a mask. Can she trust the people professing to care for her?

The first in the series about the fascinating lives of beautiful Beth Cunningham, her family and friends during the tempestuous days leading up to the Jacobite Rebellion of 1745, which attempted to overthrow the Hanoverian King George II and restore the Stuarts to the British throne.

Join the rebellion of one woman and her fight for survival in...

The Jacobite Chronicles.

Mask of Duplicity

It was fun to read but I did not appreciate the way it ended. It builds up to a conclusion but did not conclude. I would have preferred having a more exciting conclusion and then start another adventure if the goal was to get people to read the next novel. Is there a next book? I may or may not look for it.

Mask of Duplicity

Loved it! Extremely, well written!! Completely thought out and Intriguing. The ending is a little frustrating, yet perfect for making the reader want the next book.

It is not as steamy as I would have liked, but I’ve no doubt the sequel will be. The only disappointment is that the sequels are not on this site, except in audiobooks.


Excellent read

Well written, complex, well researched.
