Birthday Weekend



Hi, Everyone,

This weekend is what our family calls “birthday weekend”. That’s because we have five birthdays in the family clustered together this month—I guess Valentine’s Day has a lot to answer for! We all get together the second weekend in November, at our house, to celebrate. Six sons, two daughter-in-laws, and three grandchildren. And yes, there are five cakes too! Plus a few Christmas presents being exchanged, as we don’t all meet up for Christmas but get together New Year instead.

This month will see the publication of Wicked Deception, the 4th book in my Regency Sinners series. The eight gentlemen, known in Society as The Sinners have been given the task of finding the lady who has behaved treasonously towards the Crown. Three of The Sinners have already tried, but found their lady to be innocent. Book 4 is Maxim and Heather’s story. The book is set in Cornwall, so there is smuggling to deal with as well as hunting for French spies. Plus the hero and heroine have something of a history, even though Heather is now Maxim’s widowed stepmother. Sound intriguing? That’s ‘cos it is!

The 5th book in this Amazon #1 Bestselling series, Wicked Captive, will be available for pre-order very soon.

The stories in my Regency Sinners, Dragon Hearts, Knight Security, Regency Unlaced, and ALPHA series, are more explicit in their language and sexual content than my other books. In other words, they’re hot, so you have been warned!

Wicked Deception (Regency Sinners 4)

Wicked Deception is the 4th book in USA Today Bestseller Author, Carole Mortimer’s, Amazon #1 Regency Sinners series.

Author’s Note: All the books in the very sexy Regency Sinners series are complete and HEA stories. The stories are connected by the friendship of the eight heroes.

Maximillian Smythe, the Earl of Carlton, is the fourth of the eight gentleman, known as The Sinners, tasked with proving or disproving the guilt of a lady in Society as being a spy for Napoleon, and a traitor to the English Crown. 

The lady Maxim is to investigate is his young and beautiful widowed stepmother, Lady Heather Smythe, the Dowager Countess of Carlton.

Maxim remembers Heather as being passionate and wild as the rugged Cornish coastline where she resides with her young son. Ralph is Maxim’s half-brother and his heir since their father died eighteen months ago. 

Heather is far from pleased when her arrogant stepson, Maxim Smythe, arrives at Treganon House for an unexpected visit. She is only too well aware of the contempt Maxim’s has for her. As she holds less than fond memories of him.

From the moment of Maxim’s arrival they treat each other with suspicion.

Heather believes Maxim, a friend of the Prince Regent, to be in Cornwall to investigate the smuggling in the area. Something her family has been involved in for several centuries. 

Maxim knows Heather is hiding something but he is unsure if it is her role as a spy for the imprisoned usurper, Napoleon, or something else.

While the turbulent seas roil and crash in the cove beneath Treganon House, the desire and passion Maxim and Heather once shared flares back into life, and this time refuses to be extinguished.
