Karla Darcy lives with her husband, several tame geckos and an occasional friendly snake on the Treasure Coast on the east side of Florida. She has always felt she lived in the Regency period in a past life. Her early writings were musical comedies and humor columns so it was an easy transition to the romantic and humorous style of Regencies.
Lovely dresses, masked balls and witty conversations, w Karla Darcy lives with her husband, several tame geckos and an occasional friendly snake on the Treasure Coast on the east side of Florida. She learns to play chess instead of how to curtsey. This decision of duplicity affords Leslie 5 years of a safe and secure life. Her consideration of her faithful servants assures that they both have a role in the Duke's household, where she resides. They remain in strict adherence to fidelity to her even if they might not agree with her decision to play a role for which her body was not intended.
When her chicanery is uncovered, the reluctant bridegroom insists on a quick marriage in order to salvage their individual reputations. Pax, the Duke of Ruhaven, behaves in a behemoth manner at times. Instead of a well cultured girl, one who was bred to marry a Duke, he instead has a twined mess of a girl. She not only requires a wardrobe befitting a Duchess before being presented in society, she needs to be taught how to dress in those clothes.
The Five Kisses (Sweet Deception Regency Book 2)
The same Leslie that took such pride in catching a trout just a few years prior, now needed to learn to balance herself in corseted gowns, simple slippers and upswept hair. The colorful character of Aunt Nell stumbles upon the household for an unannounced, but not unwanted, visit just as events unfold and Leslie is uncovered from being a 14yo boy to actually being a 19yo young woman. Fitz, a friend of Pax's, becomes her faithful friend. He dances with her at balls, socializes with her and confines in her. Cecily, who was once the shimmering vision that held his eye, was now scorned and vindictive; one who might be labeled as unchosen.
She, who had been bred to be the lady of a grand household, was thrown over and her once suitor was now married to a scamp. An unhappy Cecily keeps her mouth running in society as a way to salvage her own rejection. If there is a sense of predictability in the reading of the book, I found that it was okay. The story was sweet but not sugar coated. It was a swift flight into the lives of Leslie and Pax.

The eventual budding of their love story and the stumbles that occur along the way make for a pleasant, if not overly challenging, read. Sep 15, Michael-Ann rated it it was ok Shelves: I selected this book because it was marketed as a clean, regency romance. The story was unique and interesting.
While there was no explicit content, I grew tired of the kisses described in such words as, "His impatient tongue pushed between her lips, ravaging the tender recesses of her mouth. There was no gentleness now, only unleashed passion. If you want hinted at passion, choose another bo I selected this book because it was marketed as a clean, regency romance.
If you want hinted at passion, choose another book. This one walks too close to the line of propriety for me. In fact, I think it crosses it and isn't really "clean" just not sexually explicit. Dec 21, Mary rated it liked it Shelves: Wow, the logistics of being a 14 year old girl completely playing the part of a 10 year old boy for 5 years in a Duke's household boggles the mind. Somehow Leslie manages until her ducal guardian, Pax returns from the war and everything starts unraveling.
Jan 18, Emily rated it liked it Shelves: It also botherd me that Pax's actions and behavior was all forgivin because he loved her. While thats grand, she was all to easy to be like "Oh you do love me? I'm very slowly going through all my bookshelves and trying to catalogue books bought and read in years gone by.
