Some doors were never meant to be opened...

I made a fateful mistake. I should never have peeked behind the doors into his forbidden world.

But I did, and now I’m a prisoner. Trapped by the man I thought loved. The man I once foolishly trusted. The man who, despite his lies

Oh shoot that cliffhanger 😮 seriously I can’t wait for Book 3.
Sissy's Romance Book Review
Deceived by Elisabeth Naughton is book Two in the House of Sin Series. This continues the story of Luciano Salvaciti and Natalie James. You really need to read the previous book 'Forbidden' to understand this book.
Deceived picks up just a few days after Forbidden ended. Natalie awakes to see herself marked with Slave on her Ring finger and Luc's initials on the other side of her finger. Luc is trying to keep Natalie away from the house and his morbid family...but through protecting her he is br

The minute I read the blurb to Elisabeth Naughton's new House of Sin series I knew I needed to read it. I loved Forbidden and thought Deceived was a fantastic sequel continuing Natalie and Luc's story. It was edgy, intense, sexy and full of suspense that kept me glued to the pages. I loved it!

Without giving away any spoilers, Deception continues right where Forbidden ended and we see the ramifications and consequences after that crazy cliffhanger in book one. Natalie is now on an island with Luc

Deceived was another Sensational, Edge of Your Seat, Page-Turned by Elisabeth Naughton.

Luc and Natalie have true feelings for each other, but what will happen when they each push each other to the brink? Luc's family is truly nuts and Natalie is hanging on by a very thin thread while they are back in Italy for Luc to visit his family. We see what happens to Dante when he defies his family, so what is going to happen when Luc also defies them?

Oh, Luc?? What have you done? And Natalie?

“All I saw was her, standing regally in the shadows, watching me with an unreadable expression. This amazing, incredible woman who made angry look beautiful and weak look invincible and who, even now, even after all the ugly things she’d said and heard and witnessed, was the most angelic thing I’d ever seen.
My angioletto. The only person in the world who had the power to once and truly break me. And who I was pretty sure would before all was said and done.” Luciano

I'm sorry but this book in the series didn't do it for me either. Too much drama, too much cheesy inner dialogs, too predictable, not enough interesting things happening. Actually, I could copy/paste my review of the first book and it would fit perfectly.

Fear. Betrayal. Desperation. Anguish. Love. My heart may not survive this series. The emotions Elisabeth brings forth in DECEIVED, the second installment of the House of Sin series, is unbelievable. This is definitely a story that will make your heart race and have you holding your breath, anticipating Luc and Natalie’s fate. This story picks up right where FORBIDDEN leaves off and jumps right in filling in the gaps. A few of the characters from book one make an appearance, as well as an introdu ...more

This is the second book of The House of Sin series. You have to read the first book Forbidden

Deceived is well titled for this book. We kind of start back where we were in the last book. Natalie is waking up from being drugged and is trying to figure out what the heck Luc has done to her. Needless to say, she is not at all happy when she finds out what has happened while she was out.

Luc has done some things he is not happy to have done to keep Natalie alive and hopefully safe from his family. He

I admit that book one started out rough for me. Get through it people because book #2 is non stop action from the start. This book picks up within a few days of the end of FORBIDDEN. You need to read the books in order.

This continues Natalie and Luc's story. The title of the book pretty much sums everything up. What lies were told? Who continues to lie? Is withholding information deceiving or is it for your own protection? Natalie is still neck deep in all the crazy that is Luc's family. She is

Natalie James is confused. Then it goes from confusion to “what the…” She also lets us know that some things have been solved but now there are other things going on that will have you wondering what this author has in store for her characters. Luciano “Luc” Salvatici is angry and frustrated. He’s still something of an enigma but he seems a little more human here. At times he even seemed a little vulnerable. There are some new secondary characters. They have connections to Luc a

I'd known love wasn't real. I'd known it was a myth, but I'd let myself be fooled by a handsome face, by an empty promise, by meaningless words. And that was what hurt the most.

Elisabeth Naughton knew what she was doing when she titled this one Deceived. So many deceptions, lies and secrets around every turn. Even as a reader its hard to know who to trust and just when you think there is a happy ever after in

Wowza! Deceived is Book 2 of Elisabeth Naughton's Hours of Sin series. This story packed quite the punch right from the start and the heart-pounding cliffhanger ending, Oh My Gosh NOOO! I can't wait!

While Book 1 was good, Book 2 was AMAZING! Natalie finally seems to grasp the severity of what she's involved in and came across as more level-headed this time around. This story is filled to the brim with murder, mayhem, and deceit. We do finally learn some cold harsh truths behind the Salvatici Fa

WOW! Talk about an emotional roller coaster .. and it's not even done yet!

EN has hit it out of the park with this one, no doubt. The pace of this second installment in her 'House of Sin' series is fast & furious. Beginning with Natalie waking up in a completely unexpected place & situation and leaving us with a dramatic cliffhanger (thanks loads for that! ugh), nothing is certain or to be taken for granted when it comes to House Salvatici.

Oh, this couple.

I thought that they would stay with me after I read book 1, and book 2 solidified that for me.

Don't get me wrong - when you're invested in a storyline line that, the direction that this book goes in was incredibly frustrating. At least for the first part of this volume.

But then things took a turn. And it became something different again. Still dark, yes. But the heart came back.

That ending though? Once again, left hanging. I can't wait for more!

WOWEEEE, I am so thoroughly in love with this series...i have never found a series where you get this much mystery, history, mayhem, back stabbing and sexy romance/love that keeps you on the edge of your seat not knowing what will happen next. I cannot wait for the next book. Grab this series if you love these kinds of reads. Thank you Ms Naughton for another awesome book. I volunteered an honest review for this ARC.

Wow!! This was everything and more than what I was hoping for after the first book. This is an emotional roller coaster with mysterious twists along the way.
The push and pull between Luc and Natalie was so well written and kept me turning the pages. Once again as with every EN book I've ever read I'm wondering what's next and just how in the heck she's going to get us there. I cannot wait for book 3 Undone to find out if/how Luc and Natalie get their HEA.

Natalie is one amazingly strong feisty woman. Luc is one complicated strong man. Luc comes from one messed up family. They have some really bizarre beliefs. Could not wait to see where the story would go. Can’t wait to read the next book.

Oh my word, you could cut the tension with a knife in this book. The threat, the intrigue and the half-truths make your head spin and your heart ache.

This is a gripping romantic suspense with a dark underbelly of threatening evil.

This story just gets better and scarier! Deceived is the second book in the House of Sin trilogy and if you haven’t read Forbidden, the first book, don’t even think of reading them out of order! Just like its predecessor, this story ends in a HUGE cliffhanger that had my heart beating erratically. I swear I’ll need to visit a cardiologist sometime soon, if this series doesn’t kill me first, I’m sure my heart stopping several times while reading isn’t normal.

I'm going to enlighten you and entice you to get this book. This is my intent.

I was given this book by the author and in no way am I being coherence in giving a review. I am doing it with my own free will.

This is the second part of Luc's and Natalie's story. Have you ever read a story and felt you were a voyeur looking in and watching all that is being transpired, not just sexually, but feeling the pain and angst, the emotional suffocating desire to try and help one or the other?

First, let me start by saying that this book is not a stand alone. It is the second in the House of Sin series. The first book, Forbidden, must be read prior to starting this book or you will be totally lost.

Deceived starts almost immediately where Forbidden leaves off. Luc, in trying to keep Natalie safe and off the radar of those trying to harm her, has made some decisions and taken some actions of which Natalie was unaware. The first half of the book tends to bog down a bit during the discov

I JUST finished this book and I am DYING for the next book!!! This series has captivated me and drawn me in and I am so invested in this story that I feel like I can't wait to find out what happens next!!!

This book starts out with Natalie waking up on Luc's island in the South Pacific to find out they got married, but Natalie didn't do it willingly. Furious at Luc, she tries to find a way off the island, only one thing stops her. They're surrounded by water.

After the cliffhanger ending Forbidden, I was itching to dive back into Luc and Natalie's world!

Deceived picks up a few days after Forbidden ends. Natalie wakes to find herself back in Luc's possession. She is confused, scared, and hurt by what's happening to her and around her. Luc, in his white knight glory, thinks it best not to explain things to her, which didn't sit too well with me. His main objective is to keep Natalie as far as he possibly can from his family's clutches, and he will do
