Free Friday: Deceive Not My Heart + Quibbles + House of Cards


June 27, 2014: Today’s Free Fridays book selection is DECEIVE NOT MY HEART – a story of inescapable love and the first book in the Louisiana Ladies series from Shirlee Busbee.


Leonie Saint-Andre, the granddaughter of an old Creole gentleman, thinks Morgan Slade is a scoundrel. Morgan, the son of a wealthy Natchez plantation family, thinks Leonie is a clever liar. Leonie claims Morgan married her, and fathered her five-year-old son. All she wants is her dowry returned to pay her dead grandfather’s gambling debts and save their home. Morgan knows that he accepted neither dowry, nor Leonie’s hand in marriage. But the woman before him awakens emotions he never thought he’d feel again. But that doesn’t give reason for the imposter who signed his name to the marriage papers Leonie holds — or why her son bears such a striking resemblance to Morgan himself.

This week’s Free Friday featured author Shirlee Busbee recommends…

“Set against the pivotal French and Indian Wars, SAVAGE DESTINY by Phoebe Conn is near-impossible to put down. Told with expert sensitivity, the story of Hunter and Alanna Barclay brims with richly delicious historical detail.

Alanna’s family was slaughtered by Abenaki Indians when she was a child, and her first meeting with Hunter, a Seneca brave, is terrifying. Hunter, a friend of the Barclay family, is aware of Alanna’s quiet beauty, but his attention is tragically caught by Alanna’s vivacious cousin, Melissa. But Melissa betrays Hunter, driving him back into his own world. It’s only when Alanna, desperate to bring him together with his and the now late-Melissa’s son, that Alanna and Hunter meet again.

Stalked by marauding Abenaki, Hunter and Alanna must join forces and she blossoms; not only fighting for Hunter’s life, but falling deeply in love with him. In this vivid tale of love lost and found, Conn skillfully hurdles the prejudices that Hunter and Alanna must overcome to find happiness with each other. SAVAGE DESTINY is an absolute-must for your virtual bookshelf.”
