A Necessary Deception by Laurie Alice Eakes
What It's About:
When young widow Lady Lydia Gale helps a French prisoner obtain parole, she never dreamed he would turn up in her parlor. But just as the London Season is getting under way, there he is, along with a few other questionable personages. While she should be focused on helping her headstrong younger sister prepare for her entré into London society, Lady Gale finds herself preoccupied with the mysterious Frenchman. Is he a spy or a suitor? Can she trust him? Or is she putting her family in danger?
Typically in books with both the hero and heroine's point of view, I tend to like reading about one character a little - or a lot - more than the other. In this book, though, I enjoyed both points of view. I haven't read a lot of Regency-set (Jane Austen's time period) novels, but I liked the time period and the setting and the little tidbits I learned about both. I liked the mystery element of not knowing who the real bad guy was, and having a kind hero with a French accent was nice too. :)
Find this book here on Amazon or at Barnes and Noble.

No one would ever imagine a fresh-faced young woman could be robbing stage bandits of their ill-gotten fortunes. But Jennie Jones is desperate to save her family's ranch from foreclosure. And the risks seem worth it, until her upright new ranch hand offers a glimpse of how much is really at stake.
Former bounty hunter Caleb Johnson is ready for a new, clean start. With a woman like Jennie, he could build a future there in Utah territory. But only if his gentle faith can guide her in a choice between the land she's fought so hard to save and a future by his side.
