Lady Grace Hashiver told a lie when she was 8 years old. A lie that led to Ewan Emmett, the future Duke of Greys, being punished. He has never let her forget it.

Ten years later she is a beauty and he never lets a chance go by to tease her. What he doesn't know is that even though she doesn't simper and coo around him like other ladies do, her heart still flutters whenever she is with him.

So it's a great relief to her when she meets Spencer Raleigh, Earl of Shiply who shows an interest in her an

Slightly simplistic writing style that assumes the readers are also simplistic themselves and spells out every thought and emotion experienced by the protagonists.

Grace Hashiver and Ewan, the Duke of Greys have spared with each other since they were children.
Their relationship is very complex and clever and their characters are intriguing. I felt for Grace and her insecurities. She is combating Ewan and his clever replies and teasing all through the story.
They have a run of conflict and attraction.
Now she is a gown lady and he is a known rake but her heart flutters ev

Lady Grace Hashiver has been friends with Ewan Emmett, Duke of Greys, since she was a child. The attraction she feels whenever she is around him is strong, but she fears that their childhood together will stand in their way.

Redeeming the Deception of Grace is a nice reminder of why I love clean historical fiction. It has a bit of everything – beautiful setting, romance, witty banter- all that make up for a great reading experience, and a quick one at that too!

I certainly loved the relationship between Lady Grace and Ewan, the Duke of Greys. They seemed like little kids the way they argued or tormented each other, I swear they would almost stomp their feet every time something did not go as planned, especially Ewan.

This sweet novella has a lot of chemistry between the characters, a simple plotline dominated by emotions rather than events, and a more readable writing style than the average debut epubbed novella.

Although the emotional machinations of the hero and heroine went on a bit long for this reviewer, and although there were the usual Regency-era historical inaccuracies such as a Christmas tree and modern language usage, none of that detracted a whit from my enjoyment of the story. On the contrary, wa

I'm sorry to say that I didn't enjoy this book. It might have been short, but there was no character growth and the two main characters faught through the whole book.

If you are looking for a good, quick - feel good regancy romance - Look no farther, THIS IS YOUR BOOK!! The characters are loveable, especially Ewan! I loved how Grace's mother knew everyone's feelings when it came to the two of them and called them on it. The storyline was a step away from the typical ruin the girl, marry her out of honor, find out you love one another - and I found that refreshing and endearing! I loved watching the two discover their love for one another from childhood friend ...more

Fun, quick regency romance. Lady Grace and The Duke of Greys have known each other since they were children. As they blossom into adults, they continue to tease and trade witty barbs, but try to shun the intense attraction they feel in each other’s presence. When another suitor begins to pursue Grace, she is captivated by the attention, and Greys is insanely jealous. Can he leave behind his life of being a cad to pursue the woman he truly loves and treat her as she deserves to be treated?

This sweet novella has a lot of chemistry between the characters, with fun banter between two people who grew up together as nemisis.

I enjoyed this story sufficiently to overlook some editing issues. It is a clean Regency romance. There is no sex, and the H doesn't kiss the h until the last few pages of the story.
I prefer stories that have a little more going on at all levels, but this was still a very enjoyable story. If you want a nice quick read, give it a go.

Loved it!! I couldn't wait to tell my friends about this one -- and didn't even want to wait for one of my friends to buy it herself. I gifted it. Love the dynamic between Grace and Ewan -- definitely had me laughing.
