From the rear cover: "Her fury promised vengeance. Leonie's only interest in the despicable cad she had been forced to marry was the return of her dowry. She had not seen her husband in five years, and now Morgan Slade angrily denied there had ever been a marriage. Her passion promised love. But in the cool shadows of the enchanting forest that surround Morgan Slade's elegant southern plantation, the fury of her hatred yields to the fierce hunger of unquenched longing. In the powerful arms of the dark and handsome husband she thought she despised, Leonie trembles with the sweet agony of awakened desire and helplessly surrenders to the wild, intoxicating ectasy of blazing passion. And together they abandon themselves to the exquisite pleasure of the love their hearts cannot escape."

I have to first say I stumbled across Shirlee Busbee and have been devcouring her books as quickly as I can get my hands on them. If I can remember correctly I read Gypsy Lady first, Catherine and Jason Savages story ( my my what a story!)

Deceive Not My Heart starts out with Leonie a young girl trying to hold the estate together with her grandfathers addiction to gambling it seems too much. Slowly it all unravels until there is little left so he marries her off to a rich, level headed, honest to God good man.... or so he thought. Morgan has always been restless and roamed the world for adventure until Leonie shows up demanding her dowry back to save her home with a 5 yr old Justin on her well worn heels. Morgan who had never seen Leonie before is shocked and angry that he should be cheated by Leonie until he realizes that may... just maybe being married to her and having a son like Justin wouldn't be such a bad thing but is it worth it and the scandal it will cause?

I really like the whole family deception or should I say there is always a rotten apple in the bushel? Anyways I enjoyed the story, the banter, the fiesty lil Leonie and the ever brooding suspious Morgan are great for each other. I can't wait til I pick up Midnight Masquerade to see where the next story takes me.
