Once Olympia Wingfield had been free to devote all her time to her true passion: the study of ancient legends and long-lost treasure. But now, with three hellion nephews to raise, the absentminded beauty has very little time for research. Which makes it seem all the more serendipitous when a handsome stranger strides into Olympia’s library unannounced and proceeds to set her world to rights... Tall and dark, with long, windswept black hair, Jared Chillhurst is the embodiment of Olympia’s most exotic dreams...a daring pirate, masquerading in teacher’s garb, whose plundering kisses and traveler’s tales quickly win her heart. Yet all too soon innocent Olympia will discover the enigmatic and wickedly sensual Mr. Chillhurst is no lowly tutor but a future earl with a wealth of secrets – the kind that will lead them both on a perilous quest for a hidden fortune and a love worth more than gold.

What you see isn't necessarily what you get in The Deception from prolific New York Times bestselling author Catherine Coulter. Evangeline de Beauchamps, a 19-year-old innocent, is forced to spy against her English homeland to save her beloved father from the merciless men attempting to return Napoleon Bonaparte to the French throne. To succeed, she must convince Richard Clarendon, her late cousin's husband and the Duke of Portsmouth, to take her into his home on the English Channel, preferably as nanny to his son, or as the Duke's lover, if necessary. Passing herself off as an experienced widow is more difficult than the virtuous Evangeline ever imagined, especially under the perceptive scrutiny of the Duke, a man who knows--and loves--women, especially one as beautiful and mysterious as Evangeline. And Richard, in spite of his indolent demeanor and long history of affairs d'amour, is no one's fool; he suspects that Evangeline is not telling him the whole truth, but never imagines that she could be connected to the traitor the Duke is attempting to ferret out and bring to justice for murdering one of his friends. Can love find a way to flourish among the secrets and deception? The answer is a resounding "yes!" in Catherine Coulter's moving novel. --Alison TrinkleFrom the Publisher:
