Deception is simply too ugly of a word to use around the innocent Sullyard sisters, but there's definitely something strange going on.

In COLOR OF DECEPTION, author Ruth Hartman pens a historical romance taking place in England centering around three sisters. The eldest, Kitty Sullyard, is the focus of the story. She catches the eye of a renowned rake, but it is his cousin, Nathaniel, that wants to win her hand.

It was interesting to see how the two men competed for her attention, especially as drama surrounded the artwork completed by the sisters. Add in some unsavory characters and there is plenty of excitement.

I really enjoyed the mix of humor in the dialog because it brought the characters to life and made them stand out. Take a light-hearted romance and throw it into Regency London...the end result is an enjoyable story.
