Old sins explode in New York Times bestselling author Cynthia Eden’s new Battling McGuire Boys!

People called Elizabeth Snow wild, and once she was. Now she’s the straitlaced librarian with no interest in the wildest, sexiest McGuire…until she needs him to protect her from a murderous stalker. But former Delta Force Mac does more than protect — he quickly unleashes her untamed side again, taking their attraction to the furthest edge of desire!

Secrets from their pasts threaten Elizabeth and Mac — as much as”The Fixer,” who seems to know their every move as they hunt this monstrous killer. Can they trust each other enough to go forward? Or will a shocking truth prove fatal?

My Thoughts

Ahhh what to say about this great book. First let me say it is part of a series, The Battling McGuire Boys, but it works as a stand alone title. You are not lost reading this one, but you will want to go back and read the previous books. Fans of Cynthia Eden know she is a master at mixing great characters, awesome settings, and strong emotions as well as tension, lots of tension. Tension in the form of heat and tension in the form of the past coming back to haunt the present. Yes this is a quick read, and it’s one that keeps you quickly turning the pages. I have to say I was a bit sad to see the last page turned and can’t wait to read more from this series and Cynthia Eden. Deceptions is about accepting the past and figuring out how to not let it ruin your present and future. I loved watching Mac and Elizabeth come to terms with their feelings and figure out why someone is out to kill Elizabeth. There were a few shocks/surprises, but at the same time somethings seemed easy to figure out. Personally I love a story like that. It’s like I’m part of what’s going on but I know something the characters don’t until they need to…..hard to explain but it worked perfectly. This is a story about a librarian one who’s past isn’t so “boring” as her present and she fears allowing her “wild” ways to show up again. I loved watching her accept that her life doesn’t have to be so straight laced but at the same time she doesn’t have to be “wild” to be free. Fans of the Intrigue line are in for a great read that will have them eager for more! If you are new to this line, or seeking a quick, fun, intense read that will leave you smiling then I’d suggest you add DECEPTIONS by Cynthia Eden to your reading list now! Better yet pick up a copy and start reading today, just be warned once you start you won’t be able to stop! Highly Recommended!!!!
