Now I've read it, I'm kicking myself that I didn't start it the minute it downloaded to my kindle.
I'm not going to go through what happens in the book, others have done that, I'm going to tell you that in my opinion it's a great read.
It grabbed me from the first chapter, it was amusing in places, it was also sad, and it was disturbing in other parts.
I'm now wishing the next two weeks away (that's how long it is until my next payday) so I can buy the next book in the series which is Simon's story, and if that one is half as good as this one, I'll also be buying the 3rd book which is due for release in a couple of months.
Go on, treat yourself, I'll be very surprised if you don't enjoy this book as much as I did.

Review from Jeannie Zelos book reviews
My first read by Veronica and what a read it is. I really enjoyed it. I enjoy a suspense novel that’s not too heavy, and this with the romance angle added was perfect for me.
Alex – wow – what’s she’s been through and yet she’s tough, still fighting and trying to stay alive. It must have been really hard for her, and poor Matt, how that must hurt her conscience, and its not her fault at all, she’s not to blame for her awful ex.
So, escaping from Luc once again by the skin of her teeth she ends up accepting some help from Henry. She thinks he’s a simple Professor, and Simon just his half brother – and they are, but they are also much much more. Henry is also an Earl, with a castle no less, but that’s not all he is either. Simon is suspicious of Alex, why is she on the run, and who from and what for – he wants to protect his brother and he can see already how Henry is drawn to her.
Henry needs help tracing a stolen painting, and after finding out why, Alex agrees to help him. Its for a cause dear to them both. It brings them into the murky and dangerous world of her ex though, where stolen arts are traded and the secret arms market reigns. Death and murder are everyday part of life in these underworld transactions. Its a great read, really sets a scene that feels genuine, and I loved the characters of Alex, Henry and Simon. They each had their own special qualities ( and talents) that shaped what happened. There are times when I really feared for what would happen. The suspense was perfect for me, letting me follow along with the story, taking wild guesses at what might happen ( and getting them wrong!).Read more ›
Untrue Colors by Veronica Forand
wow !!! What a great way to start a book. Alex overhears her murder !!!
Poor Alex fell for the wrong guy, and after four months of being beaten, her boyfriend decides to celebrate their anniversary with murder. She barely escapes, and plans a new life for herself.
Finding a life for herself, Alex (now known as Gabe) still doesn’t feel safe, and with good reason, it looks like they’ve found her.
Alex lives for art, she lives and breathes it. It’s her passion and when she informs the professor that the expensive painting is a fake, then all hell breaks loose.
Now Henry isn’t a stereotypical professor – he’s a hunk, and an ex-military, he is a brilliant man and sexy, with it. The initial meeting between Alex and Henry was amusing. And then he finds her in his bed
The attraction felt between Alex and Henry fizzed and crackled. The action is fast paced, and well written. The story between Alex and Henry interweaves seamlessly into a gripping suspense plot that had me unable to put it down.
I enjoyed it immensely. It’s a fast paced action read, with romance and intrigue thrown in for good measure. I managed to read it in a day, (once I opened it, I couldn’t Put it down!!)
The secondary character Simon, is Henry’s half brother, he’s an exciting read. And I’m hoping he gets a book, as the ending of this book made me cry.
As is common in this genre the protagonists although very likeable and engaging are very 'romantic fiction' in their make up.
On the run from an ex boyfriend, Alex is beautiful and super intelligent. She speaks multiple languages and is an art expert with the ability to detect forgeries even though she had no formal training. She comes from a wealthy and politically connected American family and, wanting to escape her domineering father, changes her name after running away to Europe.
Henry is a professor, a rich Earl with a big castle and country estate which he is turning into a women's shelter. He is also a formal member of the SBS, the special forces unit of the British naval service and has a has a half brother who is a member of MI6.
Luckily for Alex, it is Henry's dinner party that she gate crashes after escaping another attempt on her life by her ex.
Henry has used a family heirloom as collateral to help fund his women's shelter and is shocked when Alex informs him that his piece of art is a fake. He is determined to get the original back and offers Alex a place to stay in exchange for her help. Unwittingly, this puts Alex back in the middle of the dangerous underworld of stolen art and arms deals in which Luc, her ex boyfriend, is heavily involved. Alex has to dodge Luc and his henchmen but it is only a matter of time before her past catches up to her and she has no choice but to sacrifice herself in order to save those she loves.
The suspense element in 'Untrue Colors' was cleverly done. The villains were quite evil and Alex had a lot to contend with when she was under their control.Read more ›
