Her father orders Lady Victoria Wexhall to leave London for the home of Viscount Sutton in a remote part of Cornwall as he wants a match. However, at Wexhall¿s estate is the viscount¿s younger sibling Nathan Oliver, a retired spy who kissed Victoria three years ago that first kiss remains imprinted in her heart though the rascal vanished without a trace immediately afterward. He came home to search for jewels stolen from him while he was on an espionage mission before he ever met Victoria who he has not forgotten since the kiss. Immediately upon seeing one another, Victoria and Nathan know that the deep attraction they felt three years ago remains as strong as ever. However, he fears acting on his desires at least until he completes his current investigation because he wants no harm to come to the woman he admires. She, on the other hand, refuses to allow him to sneak off, and quickly forces herself into the inquiries. --- NOT QUITE A GENTLEMAN is an intelligent extremely well written Regency who-done-it starring two strong willed delightful sleuths, a professional and an amateur, who also have a past together. The story line is action-packed yet the beauty of a Jacquie D¿Alessandro novel is that the author makes her era come alive through her fully developed lead characters. Fans will root for Victoria and Nathan to solve the case and remain with one another for a lifetime of love. --- Harriet Klausner

I have been reading this author's work, and have been enjoying it. This book, however, just annoys the crap out of me. I know its fiction, not real life. I know its historical, showing how women start standing up for themselves, instead of being used, but come on! The female character in this novel just uses the "Ladies' Guide" to behave like a spoiled brat. She throws temper tantram after temper tantram, all while interfering in an investigation into a treasonous murderer. Poor little princess didn't like it when she realized she was an empty-headed bimbo and had been treated like one. And we, the reader, are supposed to believe that the hero respects her for her ill-timed, and poorly executed attempt at gaining "independence". Not likely. You gain respect by earning it, perhaps by acting like a grown up and putting potential murder victims needs above your own wants. You do not gain it by blackmail. Unrealistic and completely unrelatable characters and storyline.
