FOOTSTEPS IN THE FOG
Lord Frederick Aveline, otherwise known as Derick, has successfully kept up appearances as an English nobleman. What no one knows is that he’s a full-blooded Frenchman—a double-agent for the British against the French. But there is something else no one knows about Derick. Deciding to leave behind his days of espionage, he’s arrived home in Derbyshire to finish one final order of business: to find and expose a dangerous traitor.
But Aveline castle holds its own share of secrets—including murder, and an unexpected lure in Emma Wallingford. Brilliant and feisty, her loyalty lies with acting as the town’s magistrate, and she doesn’t welcome an unanticipated, though appealing, intrusion like Derick. As the two of them are drawn closer, the sordid past of Derick’s family comes to light, as does the true nature of his arrival. But when deception, however sweet, is the name of the game no one can be trusted, and every love—and every life—is at risk.

Derick Aveline, Viscount Scarsdale is the master of disguise and the best at the art of hiding in plain sight. Despite trying to retire from the business of being a spy, he is once again called into his country’s war on traitors. This fight takes him to the one place he never wanted to see again – home. He ran from that nightmare as soon as he could, and being forced back is anything but pleasant or so he imagined until he set his eyes upon Emma. Emmeline Wallingford and Derick had been childhood friends, who one after moments in the same room reconnect as it they had just seen each other an hour again instead of years.
Despite his seasoned control, Derick is having an issue with concentrating on his mission anytime Emma is near. Always the professional Derick soon discovers too many potential suspects and one surprising fact that knocks directly on Emma’s door. For Derick keeping Emma safe becomes priority number one, but he all too quickly discovers she is not only beautiful she is a brilliant scientist. Emma has spent years running her brothers magistrate service researching crime, statistics, and patterns and doing a great job of corresponding her information to other magistrates. Emma is using her beautiful mind to both assist Derick in searching for answers not only to the crimes but also about Derick himself. Emma knows there is something that is not adding up and all signs point to Derick and his refusal to answer a direct question.
Time together is shows both of them the most splendid moments of passion and excitement as well as the darkest of secrets. When you spend so many years pretending to be something you are not how do you convince anyone that you truly are what they are seeing now. Solving crime is so much easier than baring your soul to the object of your affection.
Heather Snow is a genius with plot, characters, and intricate information. Readers must embrace the magic that is the romance of her words, and appreciate the brilliance of her ability to write a mystery no one can figure out

OMG! I just devoured "Sweet Deception" of Heather Snow!
It's sensual, passionate, romantic and intriguing! It’s breathtaking!
I was already hooked from the first page and could not put it down!
I really preferred this second book of her Veiled Seduction series.
I loved her first book "Sweet Enemy" in which her heroine was a chemist!
Again, another intelligent and beautiful heroine, as Emma Wallingford, in the role of an acting magistrate.
I find it so refreshing, that Ms. Snow knew how to describe smart and independent women in both her stories.
I also loved Lord Frederick "Derick" Aveline who appears to be an
English nobleman, but in reality is a Frenchman, serving as a double agent.
Leaving his life of espionage behind, he returns home wanting to expose a traitor and meets Emma.
Being a curious woman, Emma decides to question Derick about his past, but he soon discovers that he is exposing her some confidential information of his life as a spy. Little that he knew that Emma always loved him since she was a young girl. Both will start to trust each other and sparks will flare for both of them. Ms. Snow is a new author and a high quality writer that kept me interested till the end of this intriguing romance. I liked the metaphors that she used to add some spice to her character Emma, some scenes are so funny and charming! You will find a sexual intensity that will keep you awake till late in the night!
A beautiful romance, evocative and emotionally rich with her characters! Let yourself be carried away
by reading a breathtaking “Sweet Deception”.
I can’t wait to read her third book Sweet Madness which will be release on April 2nd.

Having worked for England’s War Department for years, Lord Frederick Aveline (Derick) doesn’t know who he is anymore. He has had to keep up the act of being an English nobleman, but what no one knows is, is that he is a full blooded French. A double agent, working against the French, he must return home to Derbyshire, a place he swore to never set foot upon again. There is a traitor in Derbyshire, finding out who, will be Derick’s last mission for the country he loves. Arriving home, he finds Emma Wallingford and his castle staff in his kitchen, hunched over a map of the local area, determined to find a missing maid. Emma, his childhood friend, has grown into a beautiful, intelligent woman, who has been acting as the town’s magistrate. Realizing this will help him in his efforts to find a traitor, and a possible murderer, they must work closely together. As secrets begin to unravel, feelings come to light, will they be able to see past one another’s faults and let love in completely?
Ms. Snow writes a fantastically strong, intelligent female character in Emma. She is unique in that she is a mathematician, a budding forensic scientist, with total recall of every conversation. Oh, and she has every confidence is her abilities. One can’t help but fall totally in love with her! Derick is the total alpha male, haunted by his past. Sweet Deception has everything, murder, intrigue, mystery, and romance, making this a real page turner!!!

Second book in the series, I enjoyed both books. Lord Scarsdale is an interesting character. However, Emma is the one that shines. In fact I really enjoy the females in Heather Snow's books. They are intelligent and ahead of their time in pursuing "manly" interests in science. Very enjoyable read.
