At Half Moon House, any woman can come to Hestia Wright for help. She'll move heaven and earth to make things right for the downtrodden women of England—but she'll never give her heart to another man.

The Earl of Stoneacre has long admired Hestia. He can't help but be smitten with a woman with her strength, honor and purpose—not to mention her legendary beauty. But she's made her indifference plain, and Stoneacre is not a man to push in where he's not wanted.

Now they've been ordered to work together to defeat the Wicked Lord Marstoke once and for all. As the uneasy allies face untold peril and confront their pasts, trust and passion grow . . . but the greatest danger of all might be succumbing to a love that could never survive the obstacles in their way.

This is the last book in “The Half Moon House” series and what a book it was. Hestia Wright has spent most of her life after the man that ruined her and many other women and lead others down the path of treachery, deceit and treason. She setup Half Moon House to help those women ruined by him and give them the will and skill to make a new life for themselves. John Everett, the Earl of Stoneacre works for the Prince Regent and is told to work with the one women he can’t have Hestia Wright. This just might be worst time of his life or the best if he could convince the women to give him a chance. Hestia knows how Stoneacre feels but knows she can never have the life or love he offers. Spending this time with him just might be the end of her. Spending time in close quarters and in dangerous situations shows them both the true person and just how brilliant they are together. Maybe they could have this one time and go their separate way. Best laid plans and actions just may prove to be their undoing. This book has a great romance and nail biting suspense. I highly recommend this series and it should be read in order. The epilogue is awesome!

Hestia Wright is infamous. Her life and that of so many women was destroyed by the evil deeds of Lord Marstoke and his cronies. She and the Earl Of Stoneacre have been tasked by the Regent to capture Marstoke and dismantle his evil organization. It won't be easy. He is watching and planning their demise. I admired Hestia. She won't give up. She has worked hard to help others who have faced similar indignities. She is a champion of the downtrodden. Hestia and Stoneacre work well together, but she isn't comfortable with their partnership. Hestia is drawn to the Earl and she can tell that he feels the same. I liked seeing these two together. They are mature intelligent characters. Their dialogue helps advance the story and highlights what's in their heart. I was ready for Hestia and Stoneacre to get the HEA that they deserved. Both had been through hell. They have endured pain and heartbreak. Thank goodness they found each other. Deb Marlowe has written a compelling story. It's a perfect conclusion to the Half Moon House series. I received a copy of this book which I voluntarily read and reviewed. My comments are my honest opinion.

Hestia finally gets her happily ever after in more ways than one! There’s always been something between them waiting to bloom and she can no longer ignore it when they are forced to work together. The longer they were together the closer they got and it was just a matter of time before they both realized it was forever. When she believed that letter I wanted to scream! I did not see who was giving the info to Marstroke coming at all. None of my guesses were close even after the story of the person was told. It was a shock from the time that person was revealed to the end of everything. The ending was absolutely perfect! Hestia has spent years putting others first and living behind a mask, but Stoneacre makes her want to drop the mask and live again. I’ve loved getting to know her throughout the books and this one just makes me love her more. She survived so much but was never broken. The scene with Stoneacre’s mother was another shock and so good! Stoneacre has never hid his feelings when it came to Hestia and he sees through her mask like no one else. I loved that he never pushed her about the past, but pushed her to feel again. He would never give up on her are judge her for anything. Copy provided for an honest and voluntary review.

THE LADY'S LOVER is the finale of this series, and what a finish. I love Hestia and Stoneache, they were great characters, engaging and enduring. Well written, and well crafted, with Ms. Marlowe's usual riveting storytelling. I have enjoyed this series, a very satisfying ending sad to see it finished!! I can hardly wait for Deb Marlowe's next riveting adventure! A must read Historical Romance with love, romance, HEA, and were the bad guys gets their just ending. Awesome read!!!
