Lovereading view...

Shortlisted for the RNA Love Story of the Year Award 2010.

Secrets and scandal in Regency Newmarket. When Kit Kydd rescues actress Susanna Fair from disreputable Rafe Warwick, he proposes a feigned engagement to suit them both. But problems multiply when Susanna’s past beckons, her theatre company needs her, and Rafe reappears. Not a good time to fall in love, really.

Synopsis

Fair Deception by Jan Jones

When Kit Kydd rescues Susanna Fair from an abduction attempt, it seems to be Fate: Kit needs to appear settled to be made his great-aunt's heir, and Susanna is an actress. By pretending to be engaged for the duration of a visit to Lady Penfold, Susanna will be hidden and Kit can protect her from further danger.

But Lady Penfold lives in the horse-racing town of Newmarket, which holds the secret of Susanna's scandalous past. And the dishonourable Rafe Warwick has two thousand guineas riding on making Susanna his mistress - and he doesn't take defeat lightly. And then Susanna's travelling theatre company need her to perform in public one last time.

And Susanna really, really hadn't intended falling in love with Kit.

About the Author

Jan Jones

Jan Jones fell in love with Jane Austen, Georgette Heyer and the 1800s aged about twelve, but it wasn’t until a lot later that she wondered if perhaps she couldn’t write a Regency novel herself. Moving to Newmarket on the Suffolk/Cambridge border (very big in Regency sporting circles) crystallised the idea, and Fair Deception was born. In a previous existence, Jan was a software engineer and then (after the advent of children) a pre-school playgroup leader. She still takes an active part in village life, but writing novels and women’s magazine stories now takes up most of her time. Jan is on the committee of the Romantic Novelist’s Association and has picked the good jobs to do: coordinating the parties and organising the annual conference. Her romantic comedy Stage by Stage won the RNA New Writers Award in 2005.
