Editorial Reviews


Five Stars - Karina Kantas, Author of the OUTLAW Series.The author will open your mind to this world, and the amazing writing will have you picturing yourself in Hunter's place or you guys, being the dominant Joe. Each scene is carefully mapped out. Each character in this book plays a crucial role.
 Five Stars - Romuald Dzemo for Readers' Favorite
Victoria Saccenti is a terrific writer. That is an understatement! Her romance has a powerful premise and I was blown away by how she uses that premise to build a story that is both fascinating and gripping. Her gift for character is exemplified in this novel. Joe is a wounded man, a character who carries painful memories of war, and meeting the woman who is the root cause of one of his biggest losses creates a situation of conflict that is at the heart of the narrative. Saccenti keeps the characters and situations as real as they can be. The story has twists that I never saw coming. The prose is gorgeous and it is filled with images that are strong. The way the author explores the emotions of the characters had me flipping the pages. Deception is a page-turner and a novel that fans of romance won't put down.

Readers' Favorite Five Stars - Gobi JaneVictoria Saccenti captures strong emotions in the writing and I adored her characters. They feel like people I have met in real life. The emotional pulse of the story is strong, the plot well-imagined, and the writing gorgeous. There is suspense in the story and it compelled me to keep on turning the pages. From the moment I knew what Joe wanted, I was keen on seeing what would become of his plan. Deception is a great story for anyone who enjoys romance and who loves characters that are real.
*Four Stars* This book was so intriguing. The characters were deep and complex and you felt all their emotions. Alphas Do it Better Book Blog

Award-winning, multi-genre author Victoria Saccenti writes romantic women’s fiction, contemporary romance, and paranormal romance. Not one for heart and flower stories, she explores the strengths and weaknesses of the human spirit, the twists and turns of intimate interactions, and all possible happy endings.

After thirty years of traveling the world, she’s settled in Central Florida. She splits her busy schedule between family and her active muse at Essence Publishing. However, if she could convince her husband to sell their home, she would pack up her computer and move to Scotland, a land she adores. On a side note, in one form or another, she mentions Scotland in most of her stories.

5.0 out of 5 stars An after-military mission takes a U-turn.
By S. Abshire on August 30, 2022
Joe and Hunter's story begins with animosity, and a thirst for revenge. But as the relationship unfolds, Joe see things in a different light. Hunter, it turns out, is not the man-eater others portray her as.

Hunter will discover things about herself that are surprising, if not a culture shock. As she works her way to reuniting with her son she is also working her way into a romance she never saw coming.

Three friends will help them navigate this journey while 2 enemies plot it's demise.

There is drama, lots of steam and some heart-wrenching moments within. It will keep you turning pages, grabbing a tissue or a fan.
