I believe the answer is:

honey trap

I'm a little stuck... Click here to teach me more about this clue!

'romantic deception' is the definition.
I know nothing about this answer so I can't tell whether this works.

'involved no therapy' is the wordplay.
'involved' indicates anagramming the letters (involved can mean confusing or complex).
'notherapy' anagrammed gives 'HONEY-TRAP'.

Can you help me to learn more?

(Other definitions for honey trap that I've seen before include "sexual enticement" , "Charming stratagem" .)
