When the U.S. government promises Callie Payne and her tribe of Black Seminoles parcels of land in return for service with the U.S. Cavalry as scouts, Callie disguises herself as a man and signs on, hoping the government will finally keep it's promises. Falling in love is the last thing Callie needs. Lucien Delacroix hides a dangerous secret. The son of a wealthy white plantation owner and his quadroon mistress, Luc knows the only way he can survive is to pass for white. He doesn't expect his attraction to the lowly scout, Callie. As their desire heats up, they both discover that deceit is the least of their worries. Caught together during the Indian wars in Texas in 1873, Luc and Callie fight not only for survival, but for redemption, as well. They discover that two people from vastly different backgrounds can overcome anything … as long as there are no lies between them

Great storyline. I had not anticipated such dealings with race and its historical treatment in our country. Could use some editing, but this was a page turner.

I came across "after the lies" while searching for another book, and the plot summary caught my attention. This is a first time effort from Ms. Selby and it shows in the, sometimes, choppy flow of the story, but it held my attention all the same. I look foward to Ms.Selby's future works.

Okay. I really need to give this 2.5 stars, but since I can't, I rounded up instead of up because I DID like the book. I liked the premise. I could have loved it but there was three big problems.
1. There were misused and mixed up words, and spelling and grammar errors that were so annoying. It seems like there was no editor for this book or the editor didn't give a crap.
2. Continuity and/or cohesion. Somethings were repeated or discussed as if they had never happened. Also the female main character's personality was little schizo. You think you have a clear picture of her and what her sense of her identity is and then it flips. Some of the other characters also did swap.
3.The author total copped out on writing scenes for a few major points of the story. The parts that were set up as the foundation for conflict were handled with kid gloves. It was either given a few lines and everyone was cool. Or the reveal happened and then cut, fast-forward a few hours and everything somehow worked itself out. On one thing in particular, I kept scrolling back and flipping my kindle every which way to see if I missed something. But I didn't, there was just a chunk of the story ignored.

At the end of the book they say this is the authors first book, almost like a disclaimer instead of a praise. It should have been at the front so the reader can prepare themselves to deal with some of the sloppiness or timidity in the writing.

Given all that, like I said, I did like it. It just sucks that potential was wasted.

The Civil War and slavery are over, but the prejudice lingers. Callie Payne, of the Black Seminoles, who were forced out of Florida and into the West, learns the US Government has promised anyone who will scout for their soldiers a large parcel of land. She dresses like a man and immediately volunteers. Lucien Delacroix tells her she's too young, but she doesn't give up. Eventually, he lets her become a scout, thinking she is just a young boy. He learns she is a very good scout and he takes her under his wing. He wonders why he feels such an attraction to a boy; Callie feels the same way about him. Lucien knows he must stay on the straight and narrow because someone might find out his secret and that would definitely get him thrown out of the US Army or worse. Callie knows, living and working among so many men, she must keep up her male façade. Will these two ever get it together?

Lucien's twin sister, Esme, comes to visit him at the fort and immediately recognizes Callie as a woman. She arranges for Lucien to go to New Orleans to make amends with their father and fixes it so Callie must accompany him. There the romance blossoms. Callie wonders why a White man would be interested in her and Lucien knows he must let her know he is passing for White.

AFTER THE LIES by Mandessa Selby is an exceptionally interesting romance. It covers history, racism, the terrible plight of Indians, whether they were Black Seminoles or the hunted Comanche. It delves deeply into a possible interracial love affair, as well as the problems that surface because of it. It is well-written, the characters are believable and it was an all around good book.

Callie Payne impersonates a young male in order to receive land promised to Black-Seminoles for acting as scouts in the U.S. Cavalry. Of course, she knows the dangers of lying but Callie feels the land will help her family establish roots, so they will never be forced to move again.

Lieutenant Lucien "Luc" Delacroix knows all too well about keeping secrets. In the 1800s, being the product of a wealthy Southern white man and his black mistress is one thing, to exist among everyday people and hold a high ranking government position under the guise of a white man is another. With wars brewing on the horizon, Callie and Luc must come together in order to survive against rivals, but with their growing attraction will they be able to keep their deception and lies secrets?

After the Lies by Mandessa Selby offers an enticing glimpse into the past. This book is packed full of several different elements but most center around the different values of family and being accepted amongst them. The most enjoyable aspect of this book is the relationship between Callie and Luc, two people from two different worlds who share a connection, albeit, one of deception but a connection nonetheless. Reading about how Callie's and Luc's relationship evolves makes After the Lies a recommendable book for romance lovers who are into history.
