Overview

The Truth about Love (Cynster Series) by Stephanie Laurens

Bold, passionate and possessive, the Cynster men let nothing stand in their way when it comes to claiming the women of their hearts.

Gerrard Debbington, Vane Cynster's brother-in-law, is one of London's most eligible gentlemen. Uninterested in marriage, his driving passion is to paint the fabled gardens of Lord Tregonning's Hellebore Hall -- an opportunity that is now at hand...if Gerrard agrees to create an honest portrait of Tregonning's daughter as well.

Gerrard chafes at wasting his talents on some simpering miss, only to discover that Jacqueline Tregonning stirs him as no other. Certainly, she is beautiful, but it is her passionate nature that strikes sparks with Gerrard's own, igniting desire and sweeping them into each other's arms, convincing Gerrard that he has found his ideal soul mate -- the lady he must have as his wife.

But something is horribly wrong at Hellebore Hall. Evil and lies are reaching out to ensnare Jacqueline -- and Gerrard will have to move Heaven and Earth to protect the remarkable woman who, for him, personifies the truth about love...

I really enjoyed 'The Truth About Love'. Gerrard Debbington, the male lead in 'The Truth About Love' was a teenager who had been falsely accused of theft when first introduced in Book #2 'A Rake's Vow' of Stephanie Lauren's Bar Cynster series. He appeared a second time in Book #5 'A Secret Love' where he helped destroy a syndicate of lenders out to defraud borrowers. Now in book #12 Gerrard is all grown up and quite the hunk and involved in his own romance! Gerrard is rich, but his first love has always been painting - specifically landscapes, however on occasion he'll paint the occasional family portrait. In 'The truth About Love' he's been asked to paint the lovely and reserved Jacqueline, and learns the various gossips suspect she's involved in two murders - her fiance and her own mother. Her father who has commissioned the portrait is hidden away, mindlessly lost in grief, and in a desperate and irrational bid to fight the gossip and innuendo surrounding his daughter wants the artist in Gerrard to find and reveal her 'innocence' in the portrait (shades of 'The Picture of Dorian Grey'!). Prior to meeting Jacqueline he's lured by the promise he can also paint the fabulous gardens around her ancestral home, but after meeting her they are drawn to each other, and Gerrard agrees to the commission. Fortunately he arrives at the estate with his good friend, Barnaby Adair, and the two men must deal with the snobs and ineffectual local officials and set out to prove her innocent by finding the actual murderer and completing the painting. Along the way Jacqueline and Gerrard fall deeply in love. Stephanie Laurens is a very descriptive writer, and she's woven a wonderful tale about the wealthy class of the time period. The scenery is lush and the various Gardens of the Gods come alive. The lovemaking is achingly intense. The intricacies involving painting a masterpiece is fascinating. The villain is particularly dastardly and the ending is satisfying. And it's wonderful to see various characters from previous novels brought back to the forefront - Devil and Honoria, Vane and Patience, and Minnie and Timms. The introduction of Barnaby Adair presents a new path for Ms. Laurens. I highly recommend this novel.
