A Necessary Deception, a review

When young widow Lydia Gale helps a French prisoner obtain parole, she never dreams she will see him again. But just as the London Season gets under way, the man presents himself in her parlor. While she should be focused on getting her headstrong younger sister prepared for her entrée into Society, Lady Gale finds herself preoccupied with the mysterious Frenchman. Is he a spy or a suitor? Can she trust him? Or is she putting herself and her family in danger?

Discover a world of elegance and intrigue, balls and masquerades as Laurie Alice Eakes whisks you into the drawing rooms of London Society on this exciting quest to let the past stay in the past--and let love guide the future.


This past year, I've been interested more and more in "regency" novels. To me, they are almost fairy-tale-esque. There's a certain "air" about the setting, characters, and all that a regency tale encompasses. This book, however, gives the reader a rich depth to the era compared to some of the regency novels I've read as of recent. The plot was highly enjoyable, and original. I loved the ins and outs, the twists and turns, the carriages and masquerade, the history and emotion. The torn heart between duty and love, the out of the open sweet kiss and the whispered words in French....the healing of a hurt heart, the adventure God threw at the hero and heroine. I LOVED IT ALL.

Thank you to Revell Publishing for the review copy. All opinions are my own.
