Jack, Lord Trevithan, is about to offer marriage to Beatrice's sister Louisa. For Beatrice it's personal: Jack is the reason she's been banished from polite society. His interest in her sister is the perfect opportunity for some swift and merciless revenge – and keeping Jack away from Louisa will all but guarantee her sister's happiness, for Louisa loves another.
But Jack isn't a man to take a challenge lying down, and Beatrice's desire for retribution ignites a fire in him, a burning need to possess the woman whose downfall he so unwittingly engineered several years before. Can Beatrice stifle her attraction to him long enough to get the job done? Or will Jack's overwhelming physical presence conquer her affections?

Beatrice has had enough of Society and is ready to set up her household alone. However, she can't possibly sit back and watch her sister be forced to marry the Earl of Trevithan. Instead of simply stating her concerns, Beatrice takes action in THE DECEPTION GAME by Raven McAllan.
While short in length, this is a story packed with heat. Although Trevithan is taken by surprise, readers soon discover that these two share a past. What starts out as a kidnapping ends up capturing them both.
Some of the language is a bit odd; I can't say I have ever heard of a "pego" as a reference in a love scene. Aside from a few examples like that, the interaction between the two is well crafted.
The story moves along well, providing readers with a good storyline to support the heat between the characters. When the prisoner turns the tables and the restraints become part of their interaction, Trevithan and Beatrice become equals. With deception cast aside, the characters set forth to explore their shared passion.
