Dynasty of Deceit by Sarah Stuart is a sizzling romance with well-sculpted characters, intense passion, and fast-paced action. It’s the last book in the Royal Command trilogy, a story that will appeal to readers who want their romance punctuated with sex, incest and intrigue, but most importantly, a probe into a family’s dirty linen.
Michael Marsh is a showbiz hotshot who loses his wife in very unusual circumstances. While signing autographs, his wife, Lizzie, is stabbed to death and the killer mysteriously disappears, leaving the media and the police with improbable speculations. No one understands how a murder could occur in such circumstances, but as the investigation sets off, it becomes increasingly certain that someone must have witnessed the murder, perhaps the very person who is the victim. How much does Michael Marsh know? Apart from his shady relationship with eldest daughter Lisette, what else can the media star be hiding?
Sarah Stuart carefully crafts a romance steeped in mystery and a murder investigation, and a family saga, a story that will have readers turning the pages, wondering what surprises this seemingly successful and beautiful family may be keeping in store for them. But what do the secret lovers, “twins” Harriet and Kit, have to do with the investigation, and what could be the key to solving a murder case that has baffled everyone?
Dynasty of Deceit has everything readers would look for in a romance and murder novel — passionate sex, intrigue, dirty secrets, stabbings-in-the-back, and lies. Sarah Stuart’s writing is as sensual and tantalizing as the love scenes she describes, punctuated with beautiful and plot-driven dialogues. But the characters are what will keep readers captivated, and the duplicity and cunning of some of them will make readers think that nothing is ever as it seems.
