Some people want order…
Aaron Reynolds never expected to return to Glenfield Park. Not even after his brother died, leaving him as the new Earl of Stanton. But when a military mission forces him to return to catch a traitorous viscount, he has to face the life he left behind. And he has to do it with an unruly woman in tow.
Some people want fun…
Peyton Walker doesn’t know how she got caught up in a military scheme, but she does know she wants out. Fast. All she has to do is help the fierce captain-turned-earl catch some bad guys while pretending she’s a born and bred lady, which would be a simple matter if there weren’t so many rules.
And sometimes the two find they need a little of the other.
Aaron is determined to finish this mission before the ghosts of his past overwhelm him. Peyton wants to regain her freedom and have a little fun along the way. What they don’t expect is to find themselves caught up in one another, no longer certain if their connection is real or if they’re simply playing a part. All Aaron and Peyton know is that they need to catch the villain quickly before they lose their sanity… or their hearts.

I am so glad I found A Lady Never Swears by Christina Wordham. The novel has with engaging characters and fascinating plot. The pacing pulled me in and kept my attention until the end. I found this book refreshing as it’s a traditional Regency romance, and I loved returning to the glittering world of Regency England.
Peyton walker is our heroine, and she’s feisty, smart and determined. I liked her and wanted her to succeed. Talk about an underdog, Peyton did not have an easy childhood, and she deserves to find happiness.
Aaron Reynolds is the hero of this tale, and he’s carrying a lot of guilt because he has inherited his father’s title when it should have been his elder brother. Fate had other plans for Aaron. He has one final mission before he resigns his commission.
The romance between Aaron and Peyton has plenty of the sexual tension I adore in Regency romance. It’s a slow burn that bursts into a volcanic fire. This couple is perfect for each other, and I wanted them to find their way to each other.
If you enjoy a lovely Regency romance with characters you can fall in love with, and a plot that has a good bit of suspense, then you will love A Lady Never Swears as much as I did. I look forward to reading the next book in this series when it’s released. Happy reading!
