No Job For A WomanW Circumstances demand Julian and Deborah learn to work together and Julian dares to dream that he might gain the love of the only person he’s ever given his heart toBut will Deborah live long enough to discover that by releasing everything she values she will gain everything her heart desire. Deborah Stavely has been widowed and is competently running her late husband’s lands until she starts receiving threats from her neighbours the Granger brothers The eldest Granger demands that he marry her immediately or he will start hurting her tenants and destroying her land Her brother Lord Freddie Worth discovers the threats when Deb’s butler informs him and writes to his friend Julian Fanshaw to come help Julian is an old family friend and has just returned to England both he and Freddie went to school with the Grangers and so hope that there past experiences will help them solve Deb’s current situation However the threats run deeper than they appear; at first Julian and Freddie think that the Grangers are seeking revenge on them through Deb for something that happened back in their school days However it turns out that there’s to the story and Deb’s live is in serious dangerDeborah was in interesting character in that she was absolutely determined to do things by herself; she resented her brother for getting Julian involved in something she believed she could handle on her own and went out of her way to manage things before any one else had to get involved Her determination and stubbornness made her a fairly strong female lead for the storyJulian was the character I related to of the two I’m not entirely sure why I liked that he seemed so willing to help however he could because of the history that he shared with the family I feel that as a reader I was given of an insight into Julian’s mind from earlier on in the novel so it was easier to see things from his point of view throughoutI enjoyed the relationship that built up between the two protagonists – both remembering how they had felt when they were younger and feeling confused by how that affected them now and both as stubborn as the other in terms of seeing the other’s struggle with the feelings between them Julian’s protectiveness of Deborah was endearing throughout and Deb’s internal struggle between how she actually felt and how she thought she should feel was well played The one thing that slightly disappointed me was how little interaction we got from them once their story had been resolved The end felt a little rushed I would have enjoyed seeing a little of the conclusion before the story was cut shortIn terms of plot I did find the start a little slow This is because it took a while for the author to get to the point that there was something deeper and darker going on than anyone realised However once this point was reached I found myself infinitely interested in the outcome that the characters were going to reach The suspense built up as I grew and curious to learn what the awful secret that threatened the lives of the protagonists was The second half of the story was interesting eventful and all round what I expected when I started the book This is the first book of Sherry Gloag‘s that I have read but even though it didn’t uite make it on to my favourites shelf on Goodreads I’d happily read of her work

Kindle freebie as part of the anthology Nine Ladies Dancing A Boxed Set of Ten Sweet and Clean Regency RomancesDeborah is an independent widow competently running her estate She resents interference from men especially her brother Freddie Lord Worth can't help but worry about his sister especially since her estate agent Brandon told him Deb's neighbors the Grangers are making trouble for Deb The Grangers hold a grudge going back to Freddie's Oxford days and he fears they may be targeting Deb as a means of getting back at him The only person who knows the truth about the Grangers and how devious they are is his old school mate Julian Fanshaw Julian has recently returned from the Peninsula wounded but whole in body if not in spirit When he learns of the Grangers dangerous games he is ready for action He remembers his friend Freddie's little sister Deb; a spirited little girl tagging after them and retaliating for their mischievous boyhood pranks If the Grangers win they'll dampen Deb's spirit or worse kill her Julian is prepared to do anything to thwart the Grangers even marry Deb though he has no interest in being leg shackled Plot wise this story is pretty good It starts with a bang but the so called prologue isn't much of a literal prologue It's a scene from later in the book Whatever it is it serves as a good hook to draw in the reader There's plenty of tension to keep the reader turning pages The central plot is the mystery of why the Grangers are bothering Deb and why now The romance is secondary It's a marriage of convenience story which I normally hate but I liked how the relationship developed The characters already knew each other in childhood but Deb was happily married to her late husband Harry so the romantic tension encompasses her feelings of guilt The romance grows slowly as Deb and Julien face down the villains and try to solve the mystery The writing is decent but my big complaint is that the characters sound too modern Early in the story they use the phrases bite the bullet and pull the wool over my eyes While the wool idiom dates to the 18th century it doesn't seem to have been in common use at this time Bite the Bullet may not date to the US Civil War but it doesn't go back far enough for Regency era people to use A simple Google search told me this It forced me to knock points off my rating Deb is a heroine I can easily relate to She's fiercely independent and proud She refuses help because she knows she's capable of handling things on her own and she hates the trappings of London society She agrees to chaperone her little sister's come out season mainly because of family feeling and not wanting to listen to her sister whining and crying about her delayed season Deb also has a vulnerable side most people don't get to see She was forced to grow up uickly and it weighs heavily on her It makes her three dimensional and period appropriate Julian isn't uite so easy to get to know He clearly has some post traumatic stress issues stemming from childhood abuse and the war Like Deb he's used to being independent and he's proud but he holds traditional views on women He has never knows a lady like Deb before and she confuses him She was a mischievous spirited little girl but now he has to get to know her as an adult in a short amount of time I believe his feelings were plausible and I liked the way he grew and learned from Deb He is physically attracted to Deb but the author doesn't go overboard with sensuality The Grangers are totally evil They're scary Their evil knows no bounds and there are situations of tension and violence in the story I felt sorry for their servants Though this story is darker than I normally like to read I did enjoy it
