The Likelihood of Lucy (Regency Reformers, #2)
Synopsis
She would never bow to any man...

London, 1815

Trevor Bailey is on the cusp of opening the greatest hotel in London. His days as a gutter snipe are behind him, as he enjoys a life of wealth, society, and clandestine assignments as a spy in the service of the Crown. Until one tumultuous night churns up the past he'd long left behind...

Turned out by her employer for her radical beliefs, Lucy Greenleaf reaches out to the man who was once her most beloved friend. She never expected that the once-mischievous Trevor would be so handsome and gentleman-like and neither can deny the instant attraction.

But Lucy's reformer ways pose a threat to the hotel's future and his duties as a spy. Now Trevor must choose between his new life and the woman he's always loved...


5-Stars Review

I absolutely loved this historical romance. The chemistry between lead characters is off the chart. It also gets six out five stars for giving off-the-charts background story to our hero and heroine. It's tragic, inspirational, motivating and well-written all at the same time. In my opinion it is a must read book.

Lucy is a reformers so you can imagine how hard it is for her to keep a job as a governess. Aristocrats don't want their daughters to learn about stupid notions like "women right". After dealing with one such difficult situation she seeks Trevor. Who knows her well and will help her in her hour of need.

Trevor never thought he will see Lucy again, and now that she is back in his life, he is having trouble to decide what to do about it. One thing is for sure, he feels responsible for her and will indeed help her no matter what...
