The Gentleman's Deception Reviews

  • Heidi Robbins (Heidi Reads...)
    While this is one of my favorite genres to read- Regency romance, I haven't read many with an actress as the main character, so I was intrigued to learn more about the details of that life. I found it interesting that Lavinia had to "escape" to a new life that is more respectable in order to keep me...

    Regency romance is a fun genre and one of my favorites- especially when it's a bit off the beaten path like this one is. I've never read a regency that places the main character in the role of a stage performer and it made this story all the more intriguing.The deceptions that fill this book will ha...

There are so many lies, half truths, omissions from these characters that I got whiplash! Hehe! Lavinia Fernley, aka The Darling of Drury Lane, aka Ruby Chadwick is an actress. She is extremel...

She desires to escape the stage and find her true self. I don't recall ever reading a story about a Regency actress before and was immediate...

    Having read Tuft's The Earl's Betrothal and loving it, I was eager to get my hands on this new book of her's. And it turns out this one is related to that one. Lucas was a friend of the main character in the other book. I found it delightful to return to a character already known. And like the other...

    When you have a group of actors and a gentleman get together, anything can happen. In some aspects this book played out like a theatrical performance, you never knew who was waiting in the wings ready to descend and create a little chaos.I loved the characters, particularly the overacting thespians....

    Awwwwwwwwww!!! *sigh* I loved this book, and to tell you the truth it was a pleasant surprise. Not that I had any doubt in Karen Tuft's spectacular writing, but the plot wasn't something I thought I'd overly care for. I love this kind of historical drama. Set in my homeland. Honour & loyalty beat ou...
