Lady Margaret secretly yearns for love, but fate has exchanged wedded bliss for a lie. When she is caught hovering over her cheating husband’s dead body, she is instantly doomed to hang for his murder. Without hope for justice, Margaret flees into the night alone.
A cynical Bow Street Constable, Connor Jackson, vows to bring the fugitive Lady Margaret to face the law—but, he doesn’t expect sparks to fly between them. Could the strong yet tender lady truly be a killer?
As more suspects—and even more condemning evidence—surface, the less certain Connor is of his duty. He must choose between his growing feelings for Lady Margaret and the demands of justice. Will the truth tear them apart or set them free to find love?

In My Opinion
While Not a Fine Gentleman is book five in Donna Hatch’s Rogue Hearts series, it is the first one I’ve read. And, while I wasn’t at all lost in Margaret and Connor’s story, I’ve added the previous four books to my tbr.
Hatch transports readers to the Regency era with the murder of a Marquis and his wife’s quest to prove her innocence in said murder when all evidence points to her. Enter Connor Jackson, a Bow Street Constable, intent on seeing justice served.
The mystery in this book is engaging and flows well with the personal aspects. Margaret’s family adds another layer to the story (and I’m sure those who have been following the series will enjoy visiting the brothers again).
With a heroine whose dons a façade of strength to hide her vulnerability, a hero who admires said strength but tries not to become enamored by her, and plenty of chemistry between them, A Fine Gentleman is a diverting romp.
