The Duke's Deception

Fifth book in the duke series.

The fifth book in my duke series, The Duke's Deception, (published by Robert Hale as The Dissembler in 2006) is about to go live on Amazon.
I love the cover (done by Jane Dixon-Smith) . 
This book got a 5* review from an American review site that hated the first three books. Never understood why the reviewer panned the first three and loved this one - they were all well received on other sites.

Here is the blurb to wet your appetite.

Marianne Devenish arrives in Great Bentley expecting to find her great-uncle in residence. Instead she finds The Earl of Lenster, Theodolphus Rickham pretending to be Sir Theodore Devenish, a tulip of the ton, more interested in the cut of his coat than in politics.
Unable to stay in a bachelor establishment she moves to Frating Hall, with the permanently impecunious Lord and Lady Grierson. She discovers, to her horror, that Charles, and his younger brother, Edward are involved with the local smugglers.
Theo's dissembling inevitably leads to misunderstandings and heartbreak and with her reputation in tatters Marianne flees to London. But she is ostracised by society and is obliged to find refuge at Drayton House, a small estate in Hertfordshire. Here her life turns into a nightmare.
Can Theo catch his spy, save Edward and Charles from the gallows and rescue the woman he loves before she is lost to him for ever?

best wishes

Sounds like a good entertaining read to me... Now you have me wondering if the bad reveiws from the previous books were all done by the same person...?

Yes -they were- for some reason she just didn't like my style. I've had dozens of god reviews but we always remember the bad ones.
