"An engaging historical romance"
The will of the Marquess of Templeston instructed his son
the heir to discretely take care of his mistresses and
offspring. As Andrew Ramsey went about cleaning up his
father's mess he fell in love, married, and together with
his wife raised his half brother Kit as his own son.
In 1838, an adult Kit inherits an estate in Ireland.
Though his adoptive parents are saddened by his departure,
Kit knows it is time to venture into the world. However,
Kit may feel like a bit of déjà vu as he learns that along
with his earldom, he is the guardian of a nearly twenty-one
year old baker, Mariah Shaunessy. Kit realizes he must
teach Mariah to behave like a lady so she can have a London
season. However, she wants his love more than anything
else she desires in the world. As they begin to bond and
learn of their shared past, an unknown enemy has ugly other
ideas for their future.
ALWAYS A LADY is an engaging historical romance starring
two charmingly delightful lead protagonists. Though the
return of the stars of ONCE A MISTRESS is short, fans of
Rebecca Hagan Lee will enjoy seeing how gracefully they
have aged together. The intrigue adds little but suspense
to an enchanting early Victorian love story.
