Tacye Adlington grew up in the shadow of her twin brother Terence. But ever since Terence was killed in battle, Tacye hasn't been her usual adventurous self. It's as if part of her died with Terence. But in order to find a suitable match for her beautiful younger sister Damaris, Tacye concocts a scheme to rival anything Terence could have ever come up with! Dressing as a man, Tacye plans to accompany her sister and their Aunt Fanny to Bath. Lucius Bernard Julian Mereworth, Marquess of Worth knew Terence Adlington well. He also heard about Tacye and wonders if the young man who calls himself Toby is indeed Tacye. Determined to discover the truth without causing a scandal, Worth bides his time and makes friends with Toby. When Toby beats Worth in a race and seems completely at ease in men's clothes and talking the way men do, Worth begins to wonder if he's been wrong. Perhaps Toby is really a man, after all. Still, there's something about the young man that intrigues him and he's determined to find out what it is. Acting as chaperone for her sister and aunt proves to be more of an adventure than Tacye bargained for. True, her sister has her share of suitors, but it's up to Tacye to determine who is desirable and who Damaris should avoid. Worth's advice and guidance is appreciated, but Tacye soon realizes that the feelings she has for Worth are totally unacceptable, especially since he thinks she is a boy! She never thought she'd be ready to trade in her trousers for skirts, but for the first time in her life, Tacye has met a man that makes her happy to be a woman!Jeanne Savery has created an interesting and humorous love story! The heroine is strong and independent, and the hero loves her for it! The unexpected is always around the corner in A Lady's Deception! A unique story told by a unique writer! Jeanne Savery captures all the trials and tribulations of life for women in the 1800's! This is historical fiction at its best!Kristina Wright -- Copyright © 1994-97 Literary Times, Inc.
