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?

My thoughts: "A good man is hard to find."  This is the dilemma that Lady Margaret is facing. She has trust issues for a good reason.  Her philandering husband has just been killed and she is the murder suspect.  This book pulls you into intrigue right from the start.

Lady Margaret is a character that is hard not to like.  She is caring, responsible, and changeable.  She comes from nobility but knows how to act and treat others, not of her social station.  She comes from a family with several brothers.  All of them are powerful in their own right and try to protect her, but she is a hands-on woman and is not about to sit still and let the men determine her life.

The addition of Connor Jackson to the story is perfect.  He is a man of lowly means and a Bow Street Runner.  He is not looking for someone to love, but Lady Margaret is not a lady easily forgotten.  I loved the chemistry between them.  He is on the hunt for the killer while trying to protect her.  It is a chore he finds as hard for him as for her brothers.

This story contains romance, social intrigue, mystery, and suspense.  This is the fifth book in a series but can be read as a stand-alone.  There are references to the other stories, but I followed along well.  I really enjoyed this book.
