Shortlisted for the Love Story of the Year in the 2011 Pure Passion Awards


Secrets and subterfuge abound in Regency Newmarket...Caroline Fortune asks for little more than to train horses and continue her stealthy progress towards independence. To this end she projects a cheerfully argumentative persona in the hope that the potential suitors dredged up by her mother will all leave her alone. Lord Alexander Rothwell is certainly happy to do so. He is in Newmarket purely to fulfil an obligation. Irritable because he believes he is investigating a mare's nest, he is determined to disprove rumours of crooked racecourse dealings as soon as possible. Then he can return to his political career in London. So, when Caroline finds Alexander left for dead outside her brother's racing stables, they are both considerably disconcerted.

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 ...
