Jane Dresden’s mother, Mrs. Olivia Dresden, wants her to marry Viscount Geraint (Gerry) Walcott Haven, Lord of Haven Court. Jane has never met the man and is utterly against this marriage. All she wants is her own cottage somewhere so she can live a quiet and peaceful life. Along with Jane’s mother, her abrasive aunt, Lady Mortimer, is the one who has pushed and arranged for Jane to journey to Haven Court to meet the Viscount. Jane tells her family that if after two weeks, she finds they do not get along, then she should be allowed to retire to the country. When Jane arrives at Lord Haven’s home town, she goes missing which results in Lord Haven searching for her. Everyone is afraid that she has been abducted. Mary Cooper, a young widow with a small child, has long been a friend to Lord Haven. She calls him by his name, Gerry, not Lord Haven. Even though he is a Viscount, he prefers a simple life and does all he can to befriend and care for all of the people in his town. One night, Mary hears a noise outside and finds a young woman cold and hiding in her barn. She immediately brings her inside to warm her up. She tells Mary that her name is Jenny and she is a lady’s maid heading back to her home in Scotland. She says that she simply got parted from her coach while they were changing horses. However, Mary doesn’t think she is telling the truth but decides to help her anyway. When Lord Haven stops by to see how Mary is doing, he meets Jenny and is told that she is Mary’s cousin. Instantly smitten by her beauty and charm, Gerry and Jenny begin taking walks around the moors enjoying the beauty of the area. As they spend time together, their attraction grows. One day, Mary tells Jenny that she likes her but doesn’t believe she is who she says she is. Realizing that she will soon be found out, Jenny decides to flee and becomes lost in the moors. Will Gerry find her? Will the truth finally come out? This was a good story but I felt that Gerry and Jenny having no idea who the other truly was, is a bit hard to believe. However, there are some very good characters in the story and I’m sure readers will really like Haven’s grandmother. Copy provided by the publisher via NetGalley

Donna Lea Simpson is a masterful storyteller. The first time I came in to contact with one of her historical romances I could not get over the easiness of the flow, the tender bond between the characters and the straightforward plots. She does throw in a few surprises along the way but it adds to the beauty of these great romances. I received an ARC of Lord Haven's Deception via NetGalley in exchange for an honest review. I felt like I had fallen into a fairytale. The crafting of the story the wonder of the romance captured me and reeled me into a timeless love story.
