Review: To Lure a Proper Lady by Ashlyn Macnamara

To Lure a Proper Lady (Duke Defying Daughters #1)To Lure a Proper Lady by Ashlyn Macnamara
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

To Lure a Proper Lady is a fun regency novel about a duke's daughter, Elizabeth who hires a bow street runner to find out if someone might be causing her father's sickness. The bow street runner or as he is commonly known as Dysart has a keen ability to sound and dress like one from high society and as a commoner which comes in handy with his profession. A proud and thorough investigator, Dysart can't help but be slightly distracted by the proper Elizabeth. By inviting Dysart to her house party she causes a stir among the guests, especially when someone from Dysart's past shows up. While hosting her party Lizzie can't help but start to fall in love with the mysterious Dysart.

I'm giving this story a 5 out of 5 stars as I was not able to put it down! I love the mix of mystery with a lot of romance. I like a man with a bit of wit and street smarts and that's just what you'll find in Dysart while Elizabeth is the responsible sister who knows how to run her father's estate. It's almost like an opposites attraction with those two. If you love regency romances as much as I do I would highly recommend reading this novel by Ashlyn Macnamara. I can't wait to read the romances of her 2 other sisters, Pippa and Caro!

I received an ARC of this book from Netgalley in exchange for my honest review.
