Overview

Twins
Now you see me—now you don't

When her flashy, adventurous, identical twin is killed in a car crash, Tallahassee college professor Kate Jones is left with her twin's infant daughter. Kate knows almost nothing about the little girl's father—just that his name is Mitch and her sister left him because he was "mean." Kate loves her niece, and she'll do whatever is necessary to make sure Arianne is raised happy and healthy. That includes pretending to be her own twin when Mitch suddenly appears, so she can find out what her brother-in-law plans for his child.

Mitch Devereaux, a Cajun shrimp boat captain for whom family is all, regrets his unhappy marriage, but he adores his little girl. When his wife flees with their daughter, ignoring a joint-custody arrangement, he tracks her down and hauls her back to Louisiana, determined to have her face a judge.

But the woman he abducts is so different from the woman he married. And Kate's captor is so different from the man she'd heard about….

No one would believe that Florida State University History Professor Dr. Kate Jones and Camryn Jones are twin sisters as they approach life from diametrically opposite corners. Camryn arrives at Kate¿s Tallahassee home and informs her sibling that her spouse, Arianne's father, is cruel and she is leaving him. That night, Camryn sneaks out of her sister¿s home leaving her infant behind only to die in a car crash.

When Mitch Devereaux learned Camryn was pregnant with his child, he wanted to marry her and raise the child as part of a family, but she reluctantly agreed. After she gave birth, he and his family cared for Arianne until Camryn vanished with the child. When Mitch finds Arianne he believes that Kate is Camryn because he was unaware of the existence of her identical twin. He takes Arianne away and handcuffs Kate, who allows him to think she is Camryn. She learns he plans to take her back Terrebonne Parish, Louisiana. On the journey to his home, Mitch wonders why his prisoner seems so different. He falls deeply in love with her while she sees how caring he is with his daughter and she too falls in love with him.

WIFE BY DECEPTION is an engaging romantic suspense novel that stars two strong lead characters struggling with misconceptions caused by their mutual deceased acquaintance. Readers will want Kate and Mitch to make it together because they are a caring and charming couple whose love for one another grapples with the ghost of Camryn. Donna Sterling provides a pleasant contemporary romance that fans will adore.
