AUTHOR CARRIE JAMES HAYNES
Bio: I’m a Southern girl who now lives with my husband, children, and two dogs in New England. My children laugh at me because I consider Southern a nationality. I’m an avid reader who has a fascination with history which reflects in my writings. My latest series with Whiskey Creek Press, Tides of Charleston, is set in colonial Charleston. The Judas Kiss was just released in January which will be followed by The Promise in May, 2012 and Another Night Falls in September, 2012. Last fall, I decided to take a path that many authors have before me…I went Indie under my pen name Carrie James Haynes. I released the beginning of a fantasy saga, Whispers of a Legend. Now it’s my hope to expand my Indie writings with the release of Daughter of Deceit.
Book Name: Daughter of Deceit

Thrown together by fate, the two search for answers long denied them and along the way discover a love that can free them both.
Someone wants Alyce Hythe dead… Shunned from London society for being the daughter of George Hythe, the notorious spy and murderer, Alyce wants only to clear her father’s name. With help from her only friend, the Marquess of Rotheward, Alyce has begun to search for answers. The Marquess and Alyce have formed a bond, kindred souls, each with a burden to bear. A burden placed upon them by an unforgiving society; she branded by her father’s deeds; his by his preference in love. If known to the world, both would be ostracized and hated.

Never did he suspect the woman he has just saved from certain death is the daughter of that man. Julian is caught in midst of a conspiracy and desire for a woman where he soon discovers he might well want all to remain secret.

Moreover her life is still endangered. Will uncovering the truth save her? Or will it be best served for the secrets to remain…secret?
READER REVIEW FOR ‘DAUGHTER OF DECEIT’
By: Ruby W.
Honestly one of the best books I've read in a long time. I was caught up in the story immediately. From the opening scene, the book took one turn and then another to the point by the end of the book I was satisfied with how Ms Haynes tied everything nicely together. Alyce is searching for answers in her father's death. Julian, grieving over his twin brother's murder, saves Alyce from an assailant bent on killing her when he discovers not only is she the daughter of the man thought to have killed his brother but his own grandfather has been her guardian without his knowledge for years. Soon he realizes he's in the midst of a conspiracy. I have to mention Alyce's best friend, Charles. I don't want to give too much away, but I absolutely loved his character. There is a paranormal element to the story also which added to the suspense. I loved it, but who doesn't love a good ghost story. And the love story between Alyce and Julian perfect! Can you tell I loved the book?
