Was Beauty to be Her Burden?

The unexpected and overwhelming proposal of marriage by Richard Moncrief, the Duke of Radcliff, was a dream come true to dowryless Bonny Barbara Allan—and her worst nightmare. For her reticent husband spoke endlessly of her beauty, yet never of her his love. And her clandestine visits to help her cousin weren't easing matters at all . . .

His obsession with the fair Bonny Barbara allan was ruining the Duke of Radcliff's heretofore orderly life. But how could he trust his new bride—and vow undying love—when she was secretly meeting another man?

How frustrating! I wanted to slap the main characters. They love each other but neither will say it and one thing leads to another until it's just one big snarl.It starts with a mystery that isn't divulged until later in the book-OMG, quite unexpected little twists. I would definitley recommend reading it but you might want to keep a box of tissues handy.

A Duke Deceived, the first book in the Deceived Series, is a well-written story with a familiar lesson: If you want to know something, Just Ask! Richard and Barbara are wonderful characters. They are both kind, caring, and (usually) quite honest. They are perfect for each other, or will be when they get to know each other. In her attempt to protect her cousin’s secrets, Barbara causes Richard to suspect she is in love with another. Rather than approaching her about his thoughts, he sulks, drinks, and stays out with his friends (mature, huh?). Not everyone is happy about the two of them being together, and their behavior make it easy for them to make trouble. They had a quick, but good start to build on. Can they come to trust each other and to share they feelings? Time will tell. A Duke Deceived was Cheryl Bolen’s first published book. It was great start for her career and a great start for the new series. I recommend it and look forward to the next book. I received an ARC of this book from the publisher via NetGalley. My review is voluntary.

A Duke Deceived The Deceived Series, Book 1 by Cheryl Bolen Story about Bonnie and her cousin Emily. Book follows both of their lives and Bonnie ends up suddenly marrying Richard so her mother can see her wed before she passes. Found sex scenes a bit on the erotic side-hadn't expected them to be so explicit. Like the story line and how secrets unfold and how others are kept quiet. Love hearing both sides of the same scenes: female vs the male and what they are thinking. So many misunderstandings that lead others to act fast and health emergencies come into play and you wonder if they will ever be together. Like hearing of all the fashion besides the styles but the fabrics used. Like all outside activities and the travel and the card playing. Topics of discussion are interesting. Other works by the author are highlighted at the end. Received this review copy from Harper & Appleton via NetGalley and this is my honest opinion. #AdukeDeceived #NetGalley

OK. So this needed some editing. Also...crappy and abrupt ending with no epilogue. The book had potential but not enough make-up at the end(solution). It left me wanting.
