Thousands of readers have already fallen in love with the Briarleys — a family known for centuries of sin and scandal, now on the verge of extinction. In LORD OF DECEIT, Octavia Briarley continues the family tradition of revenge while fighting to reclaim her birthright — but in the Heiress Games, love doesn’t always follow the rules…

Rule #1: Never give your heart to a rake…

Octavia Briarley took society by storm during her debut season — until one disastrous night changed everything, and she was forced to become London’s most notorious courtesan. She’s already paid the price for trusting too easily, and she won’t make the same mistake again. But when she finally gets a chance to take revenge against the cousin who betrayed her, Octavia needs a willing partner for her schemes — someone charming, aristocratic, and devilish. The kind of man she might have married, in a different life. And the kind of man she absolutely can’t risk giving her heart to….

Rule #2: Never fall in love with the target…

Lord Rafael Emmerson-Fairhurst survived as a spy in Spain through charm and subterfuge. In London, he uses those same skills to pursue justice against those who are above the law. His next mission is Lord Somerville — Octavia’s former patron. When Octavia asks Rafe to help sabotage her cousin’s house party, he can’t refuse. If he can destroy Somerville by using her…well, Rafe never claimed to be a saint, and he never promised to protect her. But he never expected Octavia to be quite so delightful — or quite so inexperienced, given her bold demands and reckless smile. And falling in love is a mistake he’s never made before….

Rule #3: Never ignore your destiny…

As Rafe and Octavia set out to ruin the most illustrious house party of the summer, they discover that revenge can’t possibly compete with the pleasure they find in each other’s arms. Can an innocent courtesan and a broken charmer risk losing everything they ever wanted to seize the love they never expected to find?

My Review

*I received a copy from the author in exchange for my honest review.

Revenge is the name of the game for this family. I couldn’t put this one down and read the whole thing in one sitting. One little mistake set off a turn of events that changed everyone’s life and changed them too. I loved when they met at the party and how they seemed to understand each other even though they both had their secrets. I loved that they were working together to ruin the party. The ending is one of those that I always love to read.

Octavia is a woman that did what she had to when she was ruined. I loved how she always kept her head high and her whole personality. I did not see the full reason for her and Somerville’s arrangement coming at first, but it worked perfectly for her. She was a butterfly.

Rafe is nothing like he seems to the people around him. In the first book, I knew there was something about him, but never expected that he had been a spy or how he really was. I loved his personality because he didn’t react to things the way you would expect and was very kind.

There are many characters that get your interest in these books.

A devil who won’t be denied…

Too powerful to care for such petty things as morals, the Duke of Thorington lives as he pleases. And it pleases him to be known as a cruel, heartless blackguard—one no sane woman would dare to marry. But when his fortunes unexpectedly crumble, he must find a way to save his family from ruin. To succeed, Thorington needs an heiress. There’s only one problem…

A lady who can’t be contained…

Bold, daring Callista Briarley has survived riots, plagues, and revolutions while building her own privateering enterprise, but the sharks of English society are an entirely new challenge. It will all be worth it if she wins Maidenstone Abbey—a house her ancestors spent centuries killing each other for. To succeed, Callie needs a powerful ally. There’s only one problem…

Two hearts destined to ignite…

During the most infamous house party of the summer, Callie and Thorington have one chance to secure both their futures. But Callie’s need for freedom is directly at odds with Thorington’s brand of control. When her past puts them both in danger, will their unexpected love be enough to conquer all?

My Review

*I received from the author in exchange for my honest review.

I was grabbed from the start on the ship and knew it was going to be interesting! Their first meet was nothing like you would expect and I didn’t know how it would play out from there. They both liked being in control but needed to let go a bit to help each other. I loved their lessons and how they were sometimes at odd other things. I loved how they got engaged her with her cousins.

Callie was not a lady to be messed with. I loved that she was in charge of her own ships and her terms for a marriage. Her reasons for wanting to win were understandable and made a lot of sense. She wasn’t out for blood like her family has been known for.

Gavin comes off as a very cold hearted most of the time, but he really isn’t. I loved how much he cares about his siblings and that he didn’t realize how protective he was. His background explains a lot about him and made sense to why he was the way he was.

They were perfect for each other.

Thousands of readers have already fallen in love with the Briarleys — a scandalous family whose final descendants must do whatever it takes to secure their legacy. In the explosive conclusion to the Heiress Games series, Lucretia Briarley is on the verge of inheriting Maidenstone Abbey — but an unexpected arrival threatens everything she’s worked so hard to protect.

A thief on his final mission…

Maximus Vale is one of London’s top jewel thieves, and he’s protected his orphaned siblings by breaking every rule in the book. But his youngest brother is in mortal danger, and Max needs one final job — one lucrative enough to help his family leave England forever. He boldly claims to be the lost heir to the Briarley fortune, planning to steal everything he can carry and escape before anyone proves that he’s lying. Love is a distraction he can’t afford….

A debutante with a devastating secret…

Lucretia Briarley is prim, proper, perfect — everything everyone expects her to be. But her flawless reputation hides a sin she committed years ago — one that will destroy her and everyone she loves if it ever comes to light. Lucy will do anything to inherit Maidenstone Abbey and keep her secret safe — even making a risky offer to help Max claim the earldom in exchange for marrying her.

An arrangement that can destroy them in a heartbeat…

An attraction that starts as a game becomes something too powerful to ignore. But falling in love is a mistake neither can make. Their secrets and schemes set them on a collision course — one that their families may not survive. Is the growing love between a daring, clever thief and a prim, determined debutante enough to conquer everything and win the Heiress Games?

My Review

*I received a copy from the author in exchange for my honest review

It’s not just a game its a war. I loved everything about this book especially this family. I had no clue how things would turn out and didn’t want to put it down. There was an insist attraction that they both fought, but there was a reason for everything that happened. I was not expecting how the inheritance turned out or the perfect ending.

Lucy is one of my favorite heroines! She doesn’t hold back anything and I love that. She had a good reason for her secret, but it didn’t hold her back from what she wanted and she went for what she wanted. I loved when she told Max her offer and when she declared war.

Max won my heart right away. He will do anything to protect his siblings and you hope that it will all turn out for the best for him because everything he does is for a good reason. He did always have a plan and his final plan was perfect.

I loved this one and now will have to get the other books in the series because this family is very interesting.
