If You Deceive – Kresley Cole

Author: Kresley Cole
Genre: Historical Romance
Series: MacCarrick Brothers
Goodreads Rating: 4.18/5
Why I read this: Fan of the series

Synopsis: Burning vengeance…

Ethan MacCarrick was a heartbreakingly handsome rake until a powerful nobleman ordered him brutally beaten and his face scarred for a crime he didn’t commit. Ethan’s reprisal — bankrupting the nobleman and forcing his exile — does little to appease his wrath. Ten years later, a haughty, mysterious beauty enchants Ethan — the daughter of his enemy. At last, Ethan will have the revenge he’s craved; he’ll promise her marriage, seduce her, then cast her aside.

Bitter hardships…

When Madeleine van Rowen’s family was suddenly plunged into destitution and dishonor, she steeled herself against further heartache. She never weakened, never trusted, until a towering, scarred Highlander relentlessly pursues her, breaking down her defenses.

At what price forgiveness?

The passion between them burns hotter than Ethan’s fury, and soon he finds he can’t let her go. But when Madeleine uncovers the truth about him, can Ethan convince her to accept all he now offers — when he once destroyed everything she had?

What I thought about the book:
This one is my favourite from the series. I absolutely loved Maddy, anyone should think twice before messing with her! Ethan annoyed me sometimes, he pined for his good old days of boozing and broads a bit too much and he was always angry. Together, they’re one of my favourite book couples.
The suspense plot is the least dangerous of the books but I found it to be the most interesting.
This book is great, definitely worth a reread.
Favourite Character: Maddy
My Rating:
4 paws

  1. I haven’t actually read this trilogy or even heard much about it (I think Cole’s IAD books overshadow them in popularity?). It sounds interesting though! Might just pick one up if I get the time soon! 🙂
