The Daring Deception


Title: Paperback
Sale price$12.00


Handsome and dashing Lord Melsonby finds himself bored by the attentions of Society Beauties – especially those of the undeniably beautiful and irritatingly ardent Lady Karen Russell, who is trying to blackmail him into marriage.

Then, as he is caught in a snowstorm and stuck at a lowly wayside inn, Fate puts in his way a lovely young waif called Perdita Lydford, who throws herself on his mercy. She is on the run from her cruel would-be ‘guardian’ Sir Gerbold Whitton – with good reason. Not only does he beat her sadistically, he is also bent on marrying her (and her sizeable inheritance) by force.

Since they are both in the same ‘boat’, Lord Melsonby and Perdita begin their Daring Deception and dupe their respective pursuers with a fake marriage. But Sir Gerbold is not so easily daunted. Escaping on Lord Melsonby’s yacht to Morocco Poor Perdita is imperilled once more – ‘out of the frying pan’ and ‘into the fire’ of a lecherous and murderous Sultan’s harem, where she prays that Love in the form of Lord Melsonby can save her life and her virtue.
