Synopsis:

Lord_Haversham_Takes_Command_web-273x396

Lord Haversham feels as if he is always running, first from Lord and Lady Avery, his foolish parents, then from the consequences of a schoolboy prank gone awry. Now a secret service agent to the young Queen Victoria, he has run back to England from traitors who seek his life. Little does he know he is running into danger of a different kind; the perceptive, sapphire-blue gaze of his childhood love, Miranda Crenshaw. How is he to win her heart without giving away his secret and endangering the life of the Queen?

Mira’s parents, Sir Anthony and Lady Crenshaw, had always assumed their daughter would wed her lifelong friend, Harry. However, when he returns to England after a long absence, gone is the boy they had known and loved. Instead he is Bertie, a silly fop exactly like his flibbertigibbet parents. As such, her parents feel obliged to wed her to George, the young Duke of Marcross, whom Mira despises. Instead, she dreams of the man Harry was meant to be. When she catches a glimpse of him beneath his silly facade, she must find a way to persuade her parents he is the man for her–before he once again runs out of her life.

 Synopsis:

153416402 Beauty, wit, and charm may catch a gentleman’s eye, but nothing attracts suitors quite like property . . . as beloved, award-winning author Kate Moore reveals in this delightful Regency romp. For an innkeeper’s daughter new to the dance, a discreet volume of courtship wisdom may help discern the intentions of a mysterious newcomer.
 
Lucy Holbrook has recently inherited her father’s south London inn, the place she’s always called home. Now her fashionable friends, arming her with The Husband Hunter’s Guide to London, are urging her to sell the establishment and become a society lady, just as her father always hoped. Lucy would rather toss the little book into the hearth—she could never desert the alehouse or its patrons, including an elderly blind man who depends on her care. But she may need every bit of good advice when a handsome stranger arrives with a secret agenda and a baffling crime to solve

. . . and Lucy finds herself navigating a most dangerous attraction!
 

My Thoughts:

This is my first time reading this author’s work and I may give her another try but I was not bowled over by this book. It has an intriguing plot but I found it bogged down in the middle and didn’t totally pull me in.

I was intrigued by the blinded old man and how his past was tied into this story but that wasn’t enough to make me a fan.

I found out later that this is in fact book #2 of a series and maybe if I had read the first book this one would have been a better read for me. Spying and such in Victorian or Regency England seems the norm with books based in that time period so it takes an outstanding plot with just the right twists and turns to hold my attention at present.

I gave this book 3.25 of 5.0 stars for storyline and characterization and a sensual rating of 2.5 of 5.0 flames. This story contained almost no intimacy. It is more a story of discovery and spies than a real love match.

I received a complimentary digital ARC of this book via NetGalley to read and review. This in no way affected my opinion of this title which I read and reviewed voluntarily.

This Series:

  1. The Husband Hunter’s Guide to London
  2. A Lady’s Guide to Passion and Property
