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?

## HUGE FAN of Cynthia's, but slightly disappointed in this installment. The rest of the series is fabulous. This one just lacked build up and sexual tension. Something I can usually count on with her books. Don't get me wrong, I still enjoyed it and I will definitely read again; just not my favorite. Although Mac is HOT.

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!!!!

Deceptions was just as fast and exciting as all the rest. Questions about the family answered, and more questions left. I can't wait for Sullivan's book, the final book.

An Amazing Book Contemporary Romantic Suspense Texas Once Elizabeth Snow was called wild and at one time she was. Now she is just a straitlaced librarian with no interest in the sexiest, wildest McGuire. At least until she needs him to protect her from a murderous stalker. Mac is a former Delta Force that does more than protect Elizabeth – he quickly has her untamed side unleashed and is taking their attraction to the furthest edge of desire. Secrets from both their pasts are proving to be as threatening as “The Fixer” who seems to know their every move as they hunt this monstrous killer. But can they trust each other enough to move forward? Or will a shocking truth end up proving fatal? This is another wonderful book in a series that will stay with the reader long after each book is read and finished. The characters are complex and move the story along at a breakneck pace that doesn’t stop until the very last page. While each book can be read as a standalone though as there is a story line that links all the books together the reader would get much more out of the series reading the books in order. This is an amazing series that will have readers wanting the next book now.

Elizabeth is a quiet librarian. No more wildness for her. She has moved from place to place hiding from her past. But that past has caught up with her. Someone is stalking her and have tried to kill her several times now. Mac is ex Delta Force and part owner of McGuire Securities. He is attracted to Elizabeth and will do anything to keep her safe. It all has to do with her boyfriends death years ago. She was found in a closet, holding the murder weapon, in a cabin. That's when she decided to give up her wild ways. But Mac brings that wildness out again and they must find the killer before they are killed themselves. Awesome story. Love the strong, protective Mac. The sweet, sexy librarian Elizabeth. A mad man. And secrets that keep you guessing until the end. *RECEIVED A COPY FROM AUTHOR FOR HONEST REVIEW*
