Announcing DUELS & DECEPTION by Cindy Anstey!
Hello Swoon Readers,
I have terrific news—news that has been trying to break through my sealed lips for a couple of months! (Keeping a secret is hard enough at the best of times, but keeping the excitement from showing was nearly impossible.) Where was I…? Oh yes, the news.
Once again I have delved into the Regency world and found an exciting story of love, adventure and mystery to share with one and all. It, now, goes by the fantastic name of Duels & Deception, thanks to the creative minds of the great Swoon Reads team.
Like Love, Lies and Spies, Duels & Deception is a comedy of manners. Yes, people acting in ways counter to their nature just to fit in with the expectations of an overly demanding society (peer pressure with parasols). It’s a story in which a young heiress and a lawyer’s apprentice are caught up in a devious plot that involves… you got it, duels and deception. Yes, it is a comedy.
I can’t wait for you to meet Lydia Whitfield. She has great strength of character as she keeps her family together with determination and schedules. Lydia thinks little of surprises… until, of course, meeting one Robert Newton, lawyer’s apprentice extraordinaire. Robert is a young gentleman full of wit and resolve, and a great appreciation for a young lady who likes to arrive precisely on time.
