A Heart Deceived

A Heart DeceivedA Heart Deceived by Michelle Griep
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

I was really enjoying this story until I got to the part about the madam of a bawdy house … who shares MY name! Spelling my name the way I do – with the double G on the end – is actually the way it’s spelled as a last name. Imagine my surprise to find another Pegg – first name – only to find that she’s a harlot.

Thank you, Michelle Griep. **she says in a slightly sarcastic tone**

Aside from that personal affront *chuckle* I did enjoy this story. Ethan is a wonderfully flawed hero, the type I seem to be drawn to. Miri is a heroine with a heart of gold, even toward her own family members who do/have treated her badly. And who couldn’t enjoy the appearances of John Newton?! A story well worth reading.

Published by Pegg Thomas

Pegg Thomas lives on a hobby farm in Northern Michigan with Michael, her husband of *mumble* years. They raise sheep and chickens; keep a few barn cats, and Murphy the spoiled rotten dog. A life-long history geek, she writes “History with a Touch of Humor.” Pegg is published in the Barbour historical romance collections. Pegg also works as Publisher of Smitten Historical Romance, an imprint of Lighthouse Publishing of the Carolinas. When not working or writing, Pegg can be found in her barn, her garden, her kitchen, or sitting at her spinning wheel creating yarn to turn into her signature wool shawls. Pegg won the Romance Writers of America's Faith, Hope, & Love Award for 2019, was a finalist for the 2019 ACFW Editor of the Year, and a double finalist for the 2019 ACFW Carol Awards.

  1. I really loved this story. Growing up, I was always drawn to gothic romance, and this threw me back to those pleasurable reading years.

  2. I sometimes use versions of my kids’ or relatives names. I tell them if they’re going to be good — or really, really flawed… 🙂
