Episode 104: Dear Diary - Deception by Amanda Quick
Whoa!mance: Romance, Feminism, and Ourselves
We all lie. We soften hard truths and blur certain edges. Even those goody goodys who avoid harsh words and cracks in the sidewalk still let an ol’ fibber loose now and again. But what about a masquerade? Or a false portrayal - deployed perhaps to keep a low profile? This week on Whoa!mance, Morgan and Isabeau explore the pitfalls of well-meaning subterfuge in Amanda Quick’s 1993 historical, Deception. When the brilliant and scattered Olympia Wingfield agrees to translate an old diary for Jared Ryder, a handsome and extremely competent pirate, our heroine never predicted this swashbuckler would also offer to educate her three young nephews. Now, with this swarthy pirate-cum-tutor in the mix, and her housekeeping needs increasingly met, Olympia sets to work decoding the diary. But when Jared is spotted out and about in London, it seems our dexterous hero holds more titles than just tutor and pirate. It’s blouses and eyepatches this week y’all, or get ready to walk the plank.This week’s episode of Whoa!mance is brought to you by Love at First by Kate Clayborn.

The first third of this book has a rich cast, hilarious duel plot lines, and a flirtatious couple being compromised which was all pretty great. The back end of the book is less interesting and a lot more formulaic. Worth a read if you know you love Quick.
