I was really in the mood for a good regency romance (getting into the Valentine's mood) so I settled down with this book. I was not disappointed. I loved how Alexandra was such a strong woman. She made up her mind and carried it through. She didn't settle for less than the man she loved and she was going to help him whether he liked it or not. Adding the mystery to the plot just added that little extra that made the story even better. I will definitely be looking for more by this author.
