It all began in Del Mar, a chance meeting with a single rule–one week only.
Or did it?
Lennox ‘Nox’ Demetri and Alexandria ‘Charli’ Collins had every intention of following their agreement but rules are made to be broken. In CUNNING they are reunited with Nox setting down new rules for the game and Charli having no choice but to follow them.
Now, once again, the game has changed. Nox and Charli’s hot sensual encounter has grown into something more but it is threatened with secrets and regrets. Is it their love and intense sexual chemistry that’s pushing them together or something darker, a puppetmaster behind the scenes pulling the strings on their love affair?
Shadowy villains lurk around each corner and everyone is suspect as Nox’s and Charli’s pasts collide with the present and threaten to compel them back to their predestined fates.
Can deals brokered in the past be negated by something as pure as love and as steamy as the attraction shared by Nox and Charli? Or was it all a deception—starting with that very first meeting?

My goodness, what a roller coaster ride of a book. I’ve really enjoyed every installment in this series, but Deception is probably my favorite thus far. Nox blew me away with his passion and charm and it’s always so endearing when you see an Alpha male hero like him, open up and show his more vulnerable side. What a fantastic book, I loved it!!!
I have to say that my most favorite thing about this author is her creativity and her talent to throw the reader for a loop. You never know what you are going to get when you open an Aleatha Romig novel. I loved learning more about the secondary characters in this story. In the beginning, I had nothing but hate for both Charli’s mother and Nox’s father. But in this part of the story, we discover the truth behind some of the secrets and I hate to say it but, sometimes, villains can also be victims. I think each person who reads this will have a different opinion in whether to understand or condemn the actions of these characters. Not to say that I have suddenly forgiven them for their cruelty, but I guess I can understand them better and that certainly added depth to this already intriguing series.
In this story, every character is so complex and there are so many layers to the Deception that it’s very hard to decipher what is going to happen next or even who to trust. Both families are so deep in the lies, that I honestly can’t see how we’ll get to a conclusion without our hearts getting broken in the process. I’ll leave it to the author to continue to deliver more thrilling entertainment.
Finally, I want to talk about the Everest size cliffhanger, a total jaw dropper, but I’m not going to lie, it actually makes me want to go back and re-read all these books again, in search of more clues. I love the mystery and the sensuality of these novels. A total winner for me, just what the doctor ordered.
