The Lady Who Loved Him is a well thought out story of the Cato Conspiracy which is a true plot to overthrow the British Crown. However our H/H of the story are fictional. Leo Dunlop is the Marquess of Tennyson and undercover agent for The Brethren a group of secret agents to the Crown. Leo is caught in a compromising position with Lady Chloe Edgerton age 25 a spinster. Chloe is really a true heroin intelligent beautiful and non compromising in her beliefs. She is a strong advocate of women's rights, which are unheard of in 1821. She is well written. But I am just tired of the Spinster scenario. Young Women of this era were married very young. So why not go with the truth? and write younger heroines of the times instead of spinster to help placate modern day sensibilities. Most people who read know that women were married off as early as 15 and to make it to 25 without getting married would be like a 50 year old virgin in our times. I guess I am just sick of the Spinster!!! The other problem I had with the story was the fact that Chloe and all her siblings had been so horribly beaten with canes and fist by there Marquess father. I am sure things like this happen but I don't care to read how a 4 year old girl was beaten with fist by her father for entering is library. Its puts a real damper on what is suppose to be a romance story!! Bothe Chloe and Leo were abused physically and mentally by there Marquess fathers. I read HR to escape what is happening in the real world and not too read about it in my fantasy world of books.
This is a pretty clean romance the husband wife get married in the beginning of the story but don't make love until the very ending of the story. I like a little more sensuality and sexual heat in my Romance stories.
Overall I am giving it 4 stars because the storyline works and I really like Chloe and Leo. They were perfect H/H
