That’s because those who can read minds see all the ugliness in those minds. That’s because those who can see the future see the damage that could happen. That’s because those who can see the dead see how they suffered. Being paranormally gifted in Sumner’s world is a curse as well as a talent.
I liked the way Julian and Piper have long been drawn to one another and how Julian is struggling with a promise he made to Piper’s grandfather that he wouldn’t have a relationship with her. This is the crux of the story in The Lady Is Trouble, and the way these two are irresistibly pulled together made for a magnetic couple. I also loved Piper’s strength and how she has to work to prove to the men in her life that she can and must manage her own magic. Julian and Piper’s relationship is full of, frankly, wonderfully sexy moments.
The major drawback to The Lady Is Trouble is that you’re plunged into the middle of this world with little explanation from Sumner. Much of the past history of Piper and Julian is dribbled out to the reader over the course of the book, but the fact this couple has a history that’s alluded to and that there’s a steady stream of past actions in relation to the group of gifted people this book centers on makes the early part of The Lady Is Trouble really hard to understand. I hope readers persevere; things are made clear over the course of the book, but this takes quite some time to arrive. This challenge is what drove my rating down; it’s a 3 1/2-star book for me, but I rounded up to 4 stars due to the quality of the writing.
Sumner also nicely sets up some of the other residents in Julian’s haven who look to have their stories told in the future. I hope future books unfold in a more straightforward, explained fashion in this paranormal Regency world.
This is a delicately-balanced romance intertwined with an outside threat that stalks them. Both of them are tormented from within and struggling to let love heal their hearts. They certainly have chemistry in spades, a pure attraction that proves to be the guiding force they needed.
I purchased this one to read in advance of the second book, and I'm so glad I did. While each is a standalone romance, the connected story threads are woven throughout and really add depth and gravitas to this delightful fictional world. It's a beautiful romance all by itself, and I wholeheartedly recommend it for anyone who loves historical romances.
I've read so many negative reviews where the reviewer didn't even finish the book. Wrong on so many levels. At the beginning of The Lady is Trouble, I really didn't like the hero. I thought he was a bit of a jerk who belittled the heroine. Even several of the supporting characters were disrespectful of Piper. I'm so glad I kept reading and finished this book. The story was interesting, and gradually the hero became the man he should have always been. Actually, the story evolved into a very tender but intense love story. In the end, not only was the ending very happy, the epilogue was sigh-worth.
I do, however, have one negative pet peeve. Although I love descriptive writing, I wish Tracy Sumner would have dialed down the wordiness. I ended up skimming a bit.
Still, this was an entertaining read. I look forward to reading the next book.
Content 411: In addition to swearing and vulgarities (no “f” word), there is some very descriptive sexual content.

What’s a defiant woman to do when the man she’s meant for doesn’t believe in love?
After three years of waiting for Julian Alexander to realize they are destined to be together, Lady Piper Scott takes matters into her own hands. Because her gift as a healer has never done anything but distance her from the most principled man in England. A meaningless diversion as a medium, all done to gain a certain wandering viscount’s attention, backfires. As most endeavors have for a woman known in the ton as Scandalous Scott.
What’s a reluctant viscount to do when the woman he can’t have becomes the woman he can’t live without?
Julian Alexander, Lord Beauchamp, battled his way from the lowliest slum to assume his title. He carries not only a turbulent past, but a mystical psychic gift that separates him from society. Honorable to his core, he is committed to protecting a community of outcasts with abilities like his own. He has no time, no place, for love. Or repeatedly rescuing the most outrageous, beguiling woman he’s ever known. Even if she needs his protection most—and he desires her above all others.
Seduction, intrigue and desire lead to an explosive passion…
Julian vowed to shield Piper from the deadly foes seeking to possess her powerful gift. Although he needs her help in controlling his own, the mix could be deadly. Soon what was once a simple agreement to work together becomes enchantingly complex as they surrender to a timeless love…
This is a brilliant read.
Wonderful well written plot and story line that had me engaged from the start.
Love the well fleshed out characters and found them believeable.
Great suspense and passion with wonderful world building.
Can't wait to read what the author brings out next.
I read a complimentary advance copy of the book; this is my voluntary and honest review.
