In 1818 at the racetrack, a drunk Lord David Delacourt learns that a beautiful whore waits for an aristocrat in a stable. David visits the stable and sees a beautiful woman he dubs ¿Peaches¿. Expecting a professional, David accosts the woman with kisses, which she returns. However, soon Peaches is battling David when Lord Markham-Sands asks him why he is on top of his sister? David offers marriage, but the woman, Lady Cecilia rejects it even with the intervention of his kind brother-in-law, Reverend Cole Amherst.

In 1824, David loses a card game to Cole with the stakes being the former must run the latter¿s mission to help the poor for three months while he tends his pregnant wife. When David arrives at the mission, he learns Cecilia works there. They are quite attracted to each other, but she thinks he is a worthless philandering drunk. As they become better acquainted, she revises her opinion of him, as he seems to really care. Meanwhile, two of the mission¿s girls are murdered leading David and Cecilia to work with a police officer to uncover a killer even as they fall in love with one another.

A WOMAN OF VIRTUE is an intriguing love story enhanced by an entertaining historical police procedural-amateur sleuth tale. The story line is filled with non-stop action as amateur sleuths David and Cecilia aristocratically bully their way onto the police investigation. The romance between the two lead characters combines with a well written mystery to provide cross-genre appeal and will help make Liz Carlyle a favorite of fans of both genres.

Okay story. WAY TOO MUCH NON-RELEVANT DIALOG! I ended up skipping through over 100 pages just trying finish the book. I understand that this is a suspense-based story, but for the love of God, maybe two separate books would have been more prudent.

Wonderful story. Heroine and Hero had fabulous chemistry. Love when Hero's rock the protective vibe over a "stubborn" heroine!

david and cecilla were enjoyable characters to read about. their lives and the baggage each carried brought a better understanding into why they acted the way they did. i really liked david, because there was alot underneath the mask he wore so well. and only when you took time to delve, did you find a man worth studying. a woman of virtue was a good read. even though at times i got tired with cecilla's pompous attitude. the murder mysteries kept my interest. not letting the reader know too early on who might have done it. i believe in happy endings, and i knew david and peaches would find it. would i read this book again? most likely. because remember, you can't judge a book by its cover.
