The Lady’s Deception
Susanna Craig

The Lady’s Deception by Susanna Craig is book three in her Rogues and Rebels series. Though part of a series, this novel reads as a standalone. This is a romance that hits all the right notes.

Paris Burke is Dublin’s most charismatic barrister. He’s looking after his two youngest sisters while his parents are away. He hires Rosamund Gorse as the girls’, Daphne and Bellis, ages ten and eight, governess without asking the pertinent questions.

An unusual meeting is just the first step!

First impressions of Paris Burke? He's harassed to the point of being obtuse. He's late for an appointment. Not good for a supposedly on-the-ball solicitor. So focused is he on problems of the home front that when a young woman approaches him at King’s Inns Quay he assumes, because she's looking for a lawyer, she's the governess he's been sent to organize his sisters' time.
Mind you, the fact that Miss Gorse fainted when they reached his home should have

Paris Burke, a barrister, a young man with some Irish blood, takes part in a failed Irish rebellion and feels guilty about the suffering that resulted from it, including for a member of his own family. Paris is not a titled lord, which was a very nice change, and he doesn't live in a mansion. As a matter of fact, they aren a little pressed for space and don't have very many servants. One day near his law office, he mistakes a young woman for the governess he is to interview for his two young and ...more

Wow, what a great book this was to read, Susanna Craig did a fabulous job of writing Paris and Rosamund's story. One can tell a lot of research went into it and I found it so interesting learning more about the United Irishmen.

Paris is a barrister with a lot of personal angst and as we learn the cause of it, we also watch him start to slowly begin to forgive himself with the help of Rosamund and his big family. Rosamund has her own personal problems, one which leads her to run away from her hom

Each story that I read by this wonderful author only makes me anxious to read more!
Rosamund Gorse was desperate. She would not be sold by her brother to that man and her only thought was to get away and find someone to help her, possibly a lawyer?
Good fortune smiled down on her when she met Paris Burke (don't you just love that name? sigh). Practically crossing in front of his path, it seemed fate was at work. He was making his way to his next appointment to a lady who was to help him find a go

The Lady's Deception by Susanna Craig is the third book in the Rogues and Rebels Series. I haven't read the previous books but I think this book was fine as a standalone. It was a wonderful book with adventure, mistaken identity, and full of emotion. I will certainly have to read the first two books and can't wait for the next book in the series.

English countess Rosamund Gorse runs away from Kilready castle when she finds out her brother, Charles, has sold her to marry Lord Dashfort. While there's nothing strikingly wrong with Dashfort, aside from the rumors about his illegitimate child and the recent death of his wife, Rosamund doesn't love him and has no intentions of marrying this man who's way older than her.

In her plight, she meets Paris Burke, an Irish barrister, who is looking for a governess for his two youngest sisters. Taking

The third book in the Rogues and Rebels series, there was never a doubt in my mind that it would be an enjoyable read! The previous book made me feel so many emotions, and I fell in love with the characters. This book was no different, and I found myself eager to turn the page, no matter what else was going on in my life. Finished it in a day, without a shred of regret.

The last thing Rosamund Gorse expected was to find herself fleeing to Ireland from a marriage arranged by her brother, but that'

The lovely eBook cover caught my attention. Even the book information hinted that it was probably a pretty good story. For me though, it had some hits and some misses.
The main characters Rosamund and Paris had their share of pain and troubles. Rosamund had such a bleak childhood with little to no warmth and no real love or affection shown to her. At least after her father died anyway. But it came mainly from a lot of years under her brother's stifling control.
Paris has so many regrets and sorr

was provided a free copy of this book in exchange for an honest and fair review.

I haven’t read anything by this author before but I really liked the cover and was interested in giving it a try. I liked the book a good amount but there was a lot that I wasn’t thrilled with also. Rosamund was so very strong willed and I really liked that about her character, but at the same time she was so unbearably naive. And Paris was in some ways a great example of a romance novel hero but he was also very s

The Lady's Deception by Susanna Craig is book 3 in the Rogues and Rebels Series. This is the story of Rosamund Gorse and Paris Burke.

So she runs away looking to find a way to stop his plans. This leads her to run into Paris who misunderstands who she is and thinks she is a Governess that he need for his yo ...more

This satisfying conclusion to the Irish Burke Family saga centers on the tortured oldest son Paris. Grappling with his friend's death and his brother's injuries, Paris is not looking for love. Rosamund Gorse is focused on escape, not romance. But when these two meet under mistaken circumstances, there are sparks. Despite himself, Paris falls in love and in the process love heals him. Rosamund finds a soulmate ready to support and protect her. Add in two younger sisters, a wayward kitten, and a v ...more

Even though I could come up with the plot I found this book should be very interesting it was interesting in the way that the author presented the situations. Interesting in the way the author presented the characters. Interesting in the way she presented the solutions. And I loved the family structure. This is a very loving family in the personal struggles each brought into the situation. It was an emotional romantic book and some of the sexual Steamy Portrayal in the book You may want to read ...more

Paris is a good man. A bit lost because he blames himself for the death of his friend. Rosamund is her brother's pawn. He is selling her to a disgusting man...but she runs. The character development is good in this story. Our h&h talk a lot so we learn a lot about them. Interesting secondary characters too. Won't spoil the story. I enjoyed it. ...more

I enjoyed this book. I had not read the previous books but I was able to jump right in. This can be read as a stand-alone. The story was good and I felt the chemistry between the main characters. On a side note, I hate the cover. It reminds me of a gothic novel from the 1960's.
Thank you to NetGalley, the publisher and author for this ARC.
