**Thank you to the author for sharing a free copy of this book in exchange for my review.

Verity's Lie, is an historical romance set in London around the year 1815. It tells of the love affair of Lord Ryevale-Charles Huntly and the Lady Verity Verrinder during a time when he, a secret service agent, is assigned by the prime minister to protect her. Because her father is a well-known politician and is sent on an errand to parlay with the French government, there is concern that she could be in dan

Verity's Lie is such a wonderful, passionate love story that was told with skill and talent. There is nothing better than a strong heroine that comes to life in the pages. I love the history and LOVE the way Ms. Elliot ties it all together. I am hooked on this author's style and will be reading all of the books in The Huntley Trilogy

I really want to award this book four and a half stars. I'm very picky about editing otherwise this would have been a sound 5.
The plot in Verity’s Lie sticks to very traditional lines in that the hero meets the heroine, she’s involved in a dangerous abduction and he rescues her. However, the skill of the writer makes that plot seem fresh since the pace is good throughout. The heroine is quite gutsy- even though naïve of worldly ways. I liked very much that although Verity Verrinder’s father is a

My wife is a true romantic. She read this book and asked me to do the same. I am glad she did. There is history with some fiction and it is a great mix of the two. I love to read and this book really captured me from the get go. The heroine (Verity) is a strong female character which is unusual in the mushy romance novels. If it was me I would rather have a strong woman by my side than someone that is naive and vulnerable. Ryevale agrees with me and I think that is one of the reasons I loved ...more

The main character named Verity had me hooked with her strong yet sweet demeanor, and I immediately fell hard for the head strong, and mysterious Lord Ryevale.

I’m a big sucker for love stories, and this book had everything I love in a romance. Verity and Ryevale are wonderful, I throughly enjoyed reading there beautiful yet dangerous adventure:)

I will definitely be reading more of this well written series by Grace Elliot.
Has potential, but 21st Century morals and dialogue are out of place in a regency. Also, editing errors such as "peaked" for "piqued" and "rouse" for "ruse" detract from the story. Not good enough that I'll give the other books in the series a try.
