Anyway I would definitely recommend this book to any lover of romance, especially of historical romance and historical fiction. Proprio durante questo evento conosce il colonnello Trefusis, un uomo singolare che nasconde molti segreti e ha uno spirito indomito, lo stesso che anima Mary cacciandola spesso nei guai. Although she has grey eyes, a full mouth and a thick chignon of indeterminate colour, Lady Mary is also a faithful reflection of the author. With Lady Mary’s great observation skills and Tre’s connections they go on a journey solving crimes of stolen money, jewellery and documents. Traits that make her perfect to uncover society crimes – those whose wealthy victims have their pride and reputation at stake.

This time, both Mary and Tre realise that what they have is special and that they don't want to lose each other again. You don't even get to see this interaction, Mary tells Tre about it after the fact, which I thought was a poor and rushed choice. Lady Mary Montagu Douglas Scott is the daughter of the Duke and Duchess of Buccleuch and the youngest. The characters, by and large, are likeable and interesting with the bulk of the focus rightfully on Mary and Tre.

Anyone who enjoys the Lady Darby mysteries (set earlier in the 19th century) by Anna Lee Huber might enjoy this one, too.

Substitute the first man for woman and the second man for Fergie no-not-the-Black-Eyed-Pea-the-black-sheep-royal and that should clarify whether A Most Intriguing Lady will be gracing your ormolu bedside table. I liked our heroine, Lady Mary Montagu Douglas Scott, who is based on the real life youngest child of Walter, the 5th Duke of Buccleuch and Charlotte, Duchess of Buccleuch who were distant grandparents of the Duchess of York.This is the first book by Sarah Ferguson I have read, and I was pleasantly surprised to find that I enjoyed it. But in the country houses of the elite, gentleman burglars, art thieves and con-men prey on the rich and titled.

I loved Lady Mary she had modern ways and thoughts about women that was ahead of her time but she found ways around it and had a good time regardless of her restrictions. During her first case, she meets Colonel Walter Trefusis who is convincing her Father (the Duke) to back his new department of secret intelligence (he is a SPY! Mills and Boons is not my usual type of book I read but I was intrigued in the author Sarah Ferguson, and I wasn’t disappointed. Lady Mary appears to be shy and retiring, and the story begins when she has escaped from the formal dining room in the Scottish castle.She did marry Colonel Walter Trefusis, who was 13 years older than her, but that is all that is currently known. The writing was dreamily excellent and just sucked me in, so effortlessly, and refused to let me go. This is the second book in the series, by Sarah Ferguson and Marguerite Kaye, but is a standalone story the first being about Mary’s older sister Margaret. The book proceeds to focus heavily on the society crimes they solve together and on female empowerment, which makes for such a fascinating read. It is at this party where Lady Mary also meets Colonel Walter Trefusis, a distinguished and extremely handsome war veteran.

Convincente, soprattutto grazie all’attenta ricostruzione storica e all’atmosfera che solo chi è vissuto in determinati ambienti può conoscere a fondo. Lady Mary, the youngest daughter of Buccleuch family, is feeling lost and without purpose when she discovers a hidden talent - solving domestic crimes with subtlety. A most intriguing lady follows Lady Mary Douglas Montagu Scott and Walter Trefusis, Colonel Trefusis (Tre). The plot, which is as fun as it is full of rich historical detail, follows Lady Mary as she dares to go against the grain, choosing not to settle for becoming just a wife, but seeks to find her equal.This was a book that held me in thrall, at times with my heart in my mouth and at others with hope that Mary and Trefusis stop being idiots and declare their love. She works on historical documentaries and films that draw on her deep interest in Victorian history. Postage charges vary according to the weight of your items and the destination country, and are calculated at the checkout. Pacy, romantic, and fun, A Most Intriguing Lady documents one remarkable woman’s ability to be both the perfect lady, and a perfectly talented detective. I'm moving on to something else that will hopefully be a better fit for my interests and character preferences.
