WHEN OLD DECEPTIONS LEAD TO NEW DESIRESRoss Carlisle, Earl of Spalding, has dedicated his life to serving his country. When he discovers secrets that could endanger England, he’s forced into an impossible situation—commit treason and race to London to clear his name before the crown turns against him. He’s prepared to abandon everything he possesses in order to protect England, including his life…until he crosses paths with a woman who’s keeping her own secrets.
Ten years ago, Grace Alden fled the only life she’d ever known in order to protect her son, only to come face-to-face with that past when Ross collapses on her doorstep. They strike a deal—she’ll help him travel to London if he helps her reclaim her son’s inheritance. But as old deceptions turn into new desires, will they be willing to sacrifice everything they hold dear in order to protect the people they love?

This is book 4 in the Capturing the Carlisle series and this time we are meeting Ross Carlisle, Earl of Spalding who is the cousin of Sebastian, Quinton and Robert. So if you have read the previous books you know who these are.
Just when you thought Ms Harrington’s books couldn’t get any better, she goes and writes this fantastic book. This book had it all, drama, intrigue, sacrifice and above all romance. From the first to the last page, I was drawn into the book, and I had a couple of late nights because I just couldn’t put it down.
Normally I would mention some detail about the book…but this time I can only give a little snippet. So I will start with Grace Alden, oh my word she is such a strong lady, she is a widow with a nine-year-old son called Ethan…but she also has a secret, and it’s not until Ross turns up at her cottage that she finds the past is very quickly catching up.
Ross has spent all of his adult life in the army, doing his duty for the king, and again like Grace, Ross also has a secret and he needs the help of Grace to go to London…but things don’t go to plan. I found Ross to be caring and warm, but when provoked he can defend himself.
Overall this was a fantastic book and one that I can highly recommend.
