This book was totally cute. I'm realizing more and more how much I'm missing out on by not incorporating more regency romance into my diet.
I think what I loved most were the array of personalities and the humor, though I'm a huge sucker for this time period. I always crack up on how scandalous t...

I loved Cindy's other book, so I was pretty excited to read this one, even though I had no idea what it was about.
I loved Lydia. She's head strong and stands up for herself and looks out for her friends. Robert is a good man and a hard worker and the two of them together was delightful.

Well, this was quite dull - and beyond predictable. No thank you.
Okay, so I won't say I liked this book from the beginning - because I didn't. Frankly, I found it boring from the first chapter, however, because I pre-ordered it, I was determined to enjoy it .... Unfortunately, I couldn't reall...

An ARC of this title was provided by the publisher in exchange for an honest review. My thoughts are my own. This review can also be found at The Starry-Eyed Revue.
Well, this book was utterly charming. I read a lot of adult historical fiction novels, and I usually love when the characters flout s...

I received an Advance Reader Copy from the publisher via NetGalley. This in no way impacted on my view.
Anstey's previous book, Love, Lies, and Spies was one of my favourite books of last year. I adore anything to do with the Regency Era and Anstey completely understood the era and how to create a...

Cute, romantic and quirky, Duels and Deception is an excellent addition to Cindy Anstey's roster of published works. Our MCs, Lydia and Robert, are sweet and engaging, the story quick and lovely. The witty dialogue will keep you laughing, the romance will keep you reading. If you enjoyed Love, Li...

This review and others can be found on my blog, Fine Print.
Charming and sweet, Cindy Anstey’s DUELS AND DECEPTIONS is an outrageously clever YA historical fiction that’s perfect for fans of slow burn romance and whip-smart dialogue. I liked it so much that the second I finished reading, I grabbed...
