Practice To Deceive (The Golden Chronicles). Perhaps because I have never read any of Ms. Veryan's other books it took me awhile to warm up to the dialogue of that era. Toad-eater, suds, rusticated, and dragoons are some of the words you'll find in this book. I found it was necessary to look up what some of them meant but once I did I breezed through the book.

In Georgian England a beautiful young woman joins in a daring plot to rescue a fleeing Jacobite from her treacherous uncle
Funny duck
Practice to Deceive is the beginning of The Golden Chronicles. It's fun, full of adventure and humor and highly romantic without any sex scenes. I love this series and I love this author. I haven't found a bad book by her.

This book introduces the tale of the cyphers. Carriers smuggle the cyphers to one location, where they are decoded. They reveal the location of the Jacobite treasure that was gathered to help fund Prince Charlie's futile bid to take his rightful place on the throne of England. After he failed, his followers are hunted down by British troops, often in brutal fashion. Even people who aren't loyal to Charlie sometimes help out the refugees. The idea is to redistribute the treasure back to the families who donated it as many are in need financially and/or just want their family heirlooms back. Also, having the heirlooms back will protect them should the Brits starting nosing around asking questions about missing necklaces, etc.

So the carriers must hide from British troops and treasure hunters and often have many adventures along the way, always with romance involved.

Great fun and reminds me of the swashbucklers starring Errol Flynn and Tyrone Power.
Patricia Veryan can write fictional novels that have history, fully developed plots, and dynamic characters. This is one of my favorite series by her (My favorite being the Sanguinet series). If you are looking for a fun read, then try her out! You'll learn a little history, laugh a little at the dialogue, and enjoy a sweet romance that isn't saturated in sex.

Super excited to have these on Kindle now! It is impossible to find these in book stores anymore!
Amazing story thoroughly emersed in history. You'll fall in love with the characters and won't be able to put the book down! All of Patricia's books are amazing! It's best to read them in order.
Author is a favorite of mine. This was her only book I didn't have.
The first book of an amazing series! The Golden Chronicles is adventurous, romantic, funny, and exciting! Veryan is a master at characterization and dialogue. I'm buying the whole set book by book and will read and reread them forever.
This is a great read (as are all the Golden Chronicles), but I particularly found this installment to be exciting. The plot is fast-paced and complicated, and the characters strongly written. Some of the cloak-and-dagger and mistaken identity plot devices wouldn't work today, but in an era when both men and women wore elaborate wigs and face paints, it is believable.

Loved the scene where the hero is confronted by his father.

Incidentally, Patricia Veryan wrote a romance for Gordon Chandler (brother of the hero) as well.
This is the first in this series and just couldn't read it fast enough. Love it.
SPOILER ALERT: I have read and enjoyed most of Patricia Veryan's books, and I'm really disappointed in this one. It is not PG rated. There is a general overview of several sexual encounters, including a mildly detailed one between the hero and heroine before they were officially married. (They performed their own ceremony.). The other books I've read were more about romance and less about sex. Since I didn't run across this in the reviews I read, I thought I would put it out there.
