Today we are delighted to be on tour with Ava Harrison’s brand new contemporary romance stand-alone, DECEIT
I needed to get away.
My ex was getting married.
So, I left.
The English countryside was a picture-perfect escape.
The dashing stranger an even better one.
And what started as a chance encounter quickly became more.
He promised to show me how to live, how to feel alive and forget a past best forgotten.
He made me believe things could be different.
That was until I found out who he was . . .
He was Oliver Blackthorn.
The 16th Earl of Lockhart. Thirty-third in line to the throne.
And a liar.
DECEIT is now available, ONLY $2.99 and free to read in KindleUnlimited

Meeting both Addison and Oliver for the first time was quite an intriguing event.
Oliver comes across as a devil may care kind of chap. A smooth talking, easy to like and even easier to fall for gentlemen, I do not use the word “gentlemen” very often in real life, often because real gentlemen don’t exist in my world. Oliver, however, is a true red-blooded male with all the benefits of life thrown his way but still able to be humble and honest…well…that is until events spin in such a way that he has no choice other than to be dishonest, or so he thinks.
Headstrong and determined, Addison doesn’t understand the meaning of surrender let alone quitting. At the pinnacle of her career, she knows how to crack heads and take names. One wrong move though has her jetting off to England, where of course she meets our enigmatic man of the hour. What starts off as a fun night ends up with high stakes and going all in, for both Addison and Oliver.
Describing Oliver I could use a million words; suffice to say he had my heartbeat tapping out a full rendition of Lord of the Dance. Debonair and self-assured he has found himself a place in my heart. His life had been easy up until a heavyweight and black clouds were dropped on him.
Deceit isn’t a whirlwind romance, the story runs over several months of time and this gives the reader a chance to see how the characters move through life.
This author has been an auto-click author for quite a while now and I can’t say she has ever disappointed me. She’s one of those authors who can take any idea and spin it into pure gold. Her books are always going to be emotionally charged and hard to put down.
Addison and Oliver go through emotionally destructive times and both lash out, just like the old saying goes: We always hurt those we love.
Thank you, Ms. Harrison, for once again giving me a reason to hide from the real world, laugh out loud and cry my heart out all in the space of just one book.
