New York Times bestselling author and historical romance legend Mary Jo Putney delights readers with this meticulously researched and page-turning story in her sensual Lost Lords series…
After the death of his sweetheart when he was at university, Daniel Herbert buried his grief in medical studies and his passion for healing. Viewed as a saint by those who know him, in his own mind he never quite manages to live up to his own high standards.
Most men would be thrilled to learn they’ve inherited a title and estate from a distant relative, but Daniel is appalled because the burden of wealth will interfere with his medical calling. Warily he accepts that he must enter society and seek a wife—a sensible woman who can oversee his properties, leaving him free to continue his work. He does not expect to become intoxicated by a woman called the Black Widow, who is as mysterious as she is shockingly beautiful…
Jessie Kelham’s looks have always been a curse. Now alone with a young daughter and a perilous secret, she is in need of protection. But dangerously attractive Daniel Herbert is not the kind of husband she has in mind. If he recognizes her, the demons of her past will surely erupt. Yet they cannot keep apart—and soon they are drawn into a union that may bring joy—or shattering danger…
“Adventure, passion and pure reading pleasure!”

Mary Jo Putney is well known for including a great deal of mature, thoughtful conversations between her heroes and heroines, and you’ll find that in Not Always a Saint. In addition, you’ll find a lot of plots, sub-plots and side plots, perhaps too many for one book. Something has to give in a Regency romance, when you add in the requisite descriptions of period costumes, furnishings, lavish entertainments and the like. In this case, the villains (and there are many) are too one-dimensional unlike the main characters. It would have made the book far better had they been rounded out. The main characters, however are very well developed. This is not the first book I’ve read by this author and this one is not the last I will read, I had not, however read any others of this series
