Heart Of Deception by M. L. Malcolm
But the best-laid plans often go awry in war and the shadowy world of espionage. Leo is captured by the Germans and sent to a work camp. Years later, when he makes it to America, Maddy is a teenager, bitter that he had disappeared from her life and unwilling to let him back in. He goes back to the world he knows and disappears once again, his whereabouts known only to his superiors at the CIA.
Maddy grows up, but into trouble. She is torn between two men, one a boring conventional doctor whose family refuses to accept her as his wife, the other an exciting but dominating man she alternatively craves and fears. She flees to the safety of a marriage to the doctor, but when it falls apart, she finds herself drawn back into the circle of the dangerous man she wanted to avoid. As things grow steadily more dangerous, can Leo come back and be there for Maddy in her time of greatest need?
M.L. Malcolm has written a novel that will appeal to many readers. It has romance, intrigue and suspense. She artfully weaves real people, many in the early stages of the spy game, into the novel to lend it authenticity. This book is recommended for readers who enjoy reading about life choices, where they lead, and the gift of second chances.
