Nothing But Deception by Allegra Gray

Some risks simply beg to be taken...

Beatrice, Lady Pullingham, knows the type of captivating beauty who inspires great art—or at least, she thinks she does, until Paris' most exciting young painter invites her to pose for him. Incredulous, Bea nonetheless has the sense to accept Philippe's invitation, and in so doing, signs on for lessons in seduction that give her the courage to embark on the adventure of a lifetime...

Secrets. Jean-Philippe Durand has had enough of them. First, his mother's deathbed revelation—the one that brought him to England in search of his true father. And now, the secrets kept by the Englishwoman who has become his muse. Philippe wants more than just to paint Beatrice, he wants to show her every pleasure society has denied her—and she's denied herself. But there's something Beatrice isn't telling him, and his art only allows for truth...

In a fun and exciting sequel to Allegra Gray's Nothing But Scandal, the reader is once again transported to the British countryside of the early 1800s and treated to an intriguing and suspenseful mystery and romance. Expanding on the characters introduced in the first book, this companion provides shocking twists and turns, espionage and secrecy. The character development quenches the reader's thirst for more information at the end of Nothing But Scandal and leaves the reader anxious for the next book! Enjoy these two great books!

In 1815 Paris, a dying Solange Durand tells her artist son Jean-Philippe his father is not French, but instead English. He says his father is Richard Durand, but she tells him go to England to meet Lord Henry Owen also known as the artist Henri Gaudet. Meanwhile Richard works on surviving Napoleon. Jean-Philippe crosses the Channel where he plans to meet his biological father. Aristocratic women welcome the visiting famous Frenchman, but his eyes only see Widow Beatrice, Lady Pullingham. He asks her to be his muse and she agrees. However, Bea inadvertently has become embroiled in seditious actions against the Crown with Jean-Philippe suspected as an enemy agent. As the artist and the widow fall in love, she prays he is not supporting the traitors while he fears she conceals a dark secret and is tired of loved ones lying to him. This is an enjoyable Regency espionage romance as Bea works undercover for the Crown trying to help ferret out the traitors while Jean-Philippe is suspected of being a French operative though he just wants to paint her and make love with her. The story line does slow down at times especially when his French dad is on page plotting, but sub-genre readers will relish the Anglo-Franco romance as rumors spread that Napolean has returned to Paris.
