The romance was quite sweet but the two women could have done with more time together to form their relationship. I thought how quickly Sebastian got over his drug addiction the weakest part of the plot. And what happened to the mysterious Loralie club??
Viola the Princess of Belgium decides to impersonate her twin, Sebastian, after he overdoses on heroin. Her country is in the process of securing a bid from FIFA for a future World Cup. Missy “Duke” Duke is in Belgium to write commentary pieces on the Belgian bid in her newfound career as a journalist. She was one of the world’s most popular female soccer (football) players, but her career ended early due to knee surgery. Duke realizes that Viola is impersonating her brother and wants to ferret out the truth, but as the two women spend more and more time with each other, an attraction grows. Of course, things are never simple in these romances and their attraction is nipped in the bud when Viola’s scheme is revealed. The question is, will Viola be willing to forgive Duke for the part she played in the media fiasco? Will there be a happily ever after? Hmmm.
The thing that I liked about this book is that it was exactly what I expected it to be. I read the previous two books so I knew what to expect and there were no surprises for me. Is that a bad thing? Absolutely not. Stark creates an opulent world in which this slow-burn romance develops. The women are gorgeous, the scenery is stunning, the dialogue is witty and the sex is, well, sexy.
The nice twist in this book is the whole play on gender representation. When Duke first meets Viola, Viola is presenting as Sebastian. Duke is intrigued and attracted to “Sebastian” which is a bit unnerving to her since she is a lesbian. It is also interesting from Viola’s point of view because she finds she enjoys presenting as a male.
This was a very pleasant weekend read.
I was provided with an ARC of this book from the publisher via Netgalley in exchange for a fair and honest review.
Their attraction is intense and extremely hot- sizzling in fact! But the love shone through more than anything else and they were destined for each other. Nell stark gave more than a nod to the previous books in her Princess series by including some of the characters in this story. Since I haven’t read those yet I am keen to get a hold of them now. ‘The Princess Deception’ is a lovely, sexy romance that swept me off my feet.
I was given this ARC in return for an honest review.

This is loosely based on Shakespeare’s Twelfth Night, which is one of my favorite plays.Read more
