About the Book

If it seems too good to be true, it is!

Does he know far more about you than you know about him?
Is he often in situations where you can't reach him?
Are you still waiting to meet his family and friends?

Then you may be involved with a Romantic Liar! Romantic Deception can help any woman who's wondering about whether her lover is being honest or not. And we're not talking about little white lies. We're talking about heart-breaking whoppers like, "Of course I'm not married."

Romantic Deception outlines the types of lies men tell, the six warning signs that he may be lying, and concrete steps on what to do about it. This book is an essential guide for any woman having trouble with a Romantic Liar.
