Today I am back with another book review, and this falls into the category of Historical Romance! I found that this is one of my favorite genres, and I don’t really remember a time when I haven’t found a book that I didn’t like with this genre. The Lady and the Gent by Rebecca Connolly, mixes historical romance with a hint of mystery in an amazing way!
The book description was taken from the Goodreads website:
“A woman of great fortune…
Margaret Easton needs a husband, and she needs one now. Her parents are convinced that only a European will do, but Margaret wants nothing more than to stay in England. The trouble is that there is only one man Margaret can think of, or rather, one she cannot forget, and he wouldn’t do as a husband at all. Then she finds herself in his care unexpectedly, and her hunt becomes even more complicated than she could have ever imagined.
A man of great mystery…
Rafe Thornton has never said more than ten words to Margaret Easton, but she is rapidly becoming the sole occupant of his thoughts. She is distracting him from his operative work as the Gent, and keeps him from his usual focused nature, which he doesn’t mind at all. When she stumbles into his world, his work and his emotions collide, forcing him to choose between saving the Crown, and protecting his love.”
