ABANDONED AT THE ALTAR

A man devastated by love

After three years of carousing and debauchery, Alex Cartwright, heir to the Duke of Hastings, has put his life back in order. Having embraced sobriety for two years, he has no intention of revisiting the past or risking his heart again. But the return of the very woman who introduced him to the darkest side of hell brings not only the painful, haunting memories of bittersweet love and abandonment, but the son he never knew he had...

A woman silenced by secrets

Threatened by the revelation of a secret that could destroy her family's place in society and forever tarnish a dukedom, Charlotte fled England on her wedding day five years ago. Now, although it appears that secret is safe, when Alex discovers her other secret--their son--Charlotte has an altogether different battle ahead. She must now fight one love to hold onto the other--the man whose touch still makes her burn, for the child who is her very world.

Editorial Reviews

Library Journal - Marlene Harris
Runaway brides, secret babies, blackmail, and alcoholism would be enough drama for one story all by themselves. In this latest from Kendall (A Taste of Desire), all of that is mere backstory. What drive this surprisingly deep novel are its revelations and their aftermath... Highly recommended for historical romance fans. ~ Library Journal, Starred review
Romance Novel News - Jennifer Porter
"An Heir of Deception is a romance with heart. It is angst-ridden, deeply emotional and compelling. I could not put it down, and it left a smile on my face for hours." ~ Romance Novel News
Author - Courtney Milan
"Despite being overloaded with a million things, I just spent the afternoon reading An Heir of Deception. I loved it. Beverley gave me that lovely aching feeling in my gut for Charlotte and Alex. I really think this is her best book yet, and I can't wait to see what she comes up with next." ~ Courtney Milan, New York Times bestselling author.

Meet the Author

I have always loved books, romance and wished that everyone (most especially me) would find their happily ever after. Add in my love of London, England set in a period when ladies strived to be genteel and dresses could barely fit through doors, and it was obvious I could write nothing but historical romances.

As the mother of one too bright and mischievous young boy, I pull full-time duty on all fronts. When I'm not working at my techy-type job, mothering, writing or reading, I'm probably sleeping and dreaming of a time when I'll have time for my favorite hobbies: knitting, crocheting and sewing.

I waited months for this book and it was worth every bit of my long not so patient wait! Alex is my dream hero, he is brooding, sexy, and hopelessly in love with Charlotte. When she left him at the alter 5 years before he was almost destroyed. When she comes back into his life 5 years later he is hurt and angry, but deep down still loves her just as much. Alex really makes her suffer for a while for hurting him and keeping his son from him. The book was both heartbreaking and very sexy! My favorite type of romance is the loves reunited and this was just perfect. I loved this book

Great read. I absolutely loved Alex. He made the book for me. My heart bled for him. Charlotte was great too. So many secrets and twists. That surprised me the most. When you think you know what the book is about, you don't. Ending shocked me. Now I'm wondering how soon it will be before Beverly releases Catherine and Lucas' book. Quite the teaser there at the end. Loved this entire series.

When I received an email stating that this book was available, I bought it on my Nook immediately. Her other 3 books for this series was really good and she kept up with the awesome writing in this one. Read it in one day (and I'm a working mother of 3)! I agreed with the other review, you must read the other 3 books to have a better understanding/appreciation of the story line and characters. Love, love and absolutely LOVE ALEX!

WOW - AWESOME!!! This was amazing - my 4th book by Ms Kendall and possibly my favorite. Please read all the Elusive Lord books in order. This was a book with over 747 Nook pages, and so well worth the money. Usually, I can figure out the ending , but not with this book. So many surprises, you will be shocked.

An engaging story that is as relevant today as the period in which it was written (mid 1800's).

I absolutely love , love her series. I love this book. It's a must read. Beverly did a awesome job with all the books. I love her writing style. I wish she would keep writing historical romance. I'm not a fan of her new stuff.
