Practice to Deceive

(1985)
(The first book in the Golden Chronicles series)
A novel by

 
 
It is 1746. Bonnie Prince Charlie's rebellion has been crushed, and his loyal followers, bound to recover a vast missing treasure, flee murderous soldiers and bounty hunters across strife-torn England.

And in the center of this violent storm, the lovely Penelope Montgomery lives a virtual prisoner of her scheming uncle and his cruel wife. She knows nothing of their cold plot to make her innocence a gift to Captain Rolan Otton, whose startling handsomeness barely conceals a ruthless villainy.

She dreams only of Quentin Chandler - -the man who won her love in childhood, who now claims the awakening passions of her womanhood.

And soon destiny will surprise them both as they are reunited in a desperate flight to restore the missing treasure, bring honor back to England, and savor at last the sweet rewards of their longing, loving hearts.
