Mr. Hugh Grey and Miss Eleanor Broxton share a scintillating liaison the night before he leaves for war in Canada. The memory sustained him for the years he was away. Now, the reputed rake is back, knighted, and he’s got enough money to right the estate his father left in ruins. What would make Sir Hugh Grey’s world perfect is the lovely Eleanor by his side.

Their attraction is sizzling, and the sweet way Hugh is wooing her—a kitten, kisses in the moonlight, and expert help in lighting her dreary work space—makes Eleanor dream of forever with her strapping knight. But she will not risk a scandal, which could ruin his newfound respectability and esteem, especially in her father’s eyes. When Hugh discovers what she’s been hiding, it could drive them apart forever.


“Hugh and Eleanor's story was "sigh worthy". And, I mean that in a good way! Hugh was so romantic and sweet. He gave Eleanor a kitten, for Heaven's sake! I think I may have found a new "book boyfriend" in the dashing, handsome and romantic Sir Hugh!” –Tammy W., Goodreads

Absolutely great story! I highly recommend!” –Carol B., NetGalley

An exceptional historical romance!” –Lori B., Goodreads

“Get a big box of tissues ready because this is a very emotional story. A thoroughly enjoyable read!” –Petula W., Goodreads

'A Lady's Decption' by Pamela Mingle is Book Two in the "Haslemere Men" Series. This is the story of Mr. Hugh Grey and Miss Eleanor Broxton. I have read the previous book but feel this can easily be a standalone book.

Hugh and Eleanor's story was "sigh worthy". And, I mean that in a good way! Hugh was so romantic and sweet. He gave Eleanor a kitten, for Heaven's sake! That was a "swoon worthy" move in my opinion. Eleanor can't help but be swept off of her feet by Hugh, again. But, the secret she is hiding from hi ...more

A Lady's Deception follows A False Proposal, this time telling the story of Hugh Grey, brother of Adam from the previous book.

This romance story was sweet, reminding me of Downton Abbey (which is, of course, set in a different time period). I liked the chemistry Hugh and Eleonora had from the start and enjoyed the slow dance around each other until they found their happily ever after.

This review is based on a NetGalley ARC ...more

What a refreshing historical romance. This book brought tears to my eyes several times. A book that can bring out that strong of emotions from me is definitely worth 5 stars.
I don't want to give spoilers, so will keep this short because the emotional journey was sweet. If you like a good journey in ...more

By Elizabeth July 16, 2019

Eleanor is a really good character. She's quietly determined and independent, forging a life for herself any way that she can without expecting much from those around her. Of course that's part of her problem too. Her love interest is a bit of a hothead but he gets over it without her rescuing him. ...more

Loved this story!! Second chance at love is always one of my favorite types of stories.

Her love of historical romance was nurtured by Shakespeare and Jane Austen, and her novels have all been set either in the Elizabethan or Regency periods. Many long walks in England, Scotland, and Wales have given her a strong sense of place around which to build her stories. Game of Spies, her newest book, follows Mistress Spy, both part of the Spies in Love series.
