Lord Carlton's Courtship (Zebra Regency Romance) Kindle Edition
Miss Roma Allendyle detested behaving like a proper lady, and all the patronizing nonsense that came along with it. After all, she could outride and outshoot any gentleman. When her brother, an agent of the Crown, suddenly vanishes, she sees no reason not to go looking for him herself—even if doing so requires her to disguise herself as a grubby lad.
Roma expects to face challenges, but not to be targeted by a mysterious ambush. Nor did she expect to be rescued by the darkly handsome Lord Giles Carlton, the Season’s prime catch. Though she is grateful to be alive, Roma is incensed by Giles’s arrogance—especially when he insists on helping with her search. But there is yet another surprise in store. For in Giles, Roma just may find a will and passion to match her own—and an outlandish ploy that could lead to true love.

Roma Allendyle is a 23 year old woman who was raised by her father and brother. She is high spirited, independent and has no need of a man in her life. Roma was doing just fine living at their country estate riding her horse, tending her garden and running the household until her brother goes missing. Roma finds herself thrust to London in the middle of the season where air headed debutant's are looking for a husband.
Lord Giles Carlton hates being in London being pawed after by woman who just want him for his vast estate, he longs to meet a woman who challenges him. Lord Carlton's luck changes when he meets Roma under strained circumstances. Roma is definitely a breathe of fresh air.
I was sure when I began to read this book that it was very familiar and stopped reading to do some research. Yes I found I had read this book before only the author was different. This very enjoyable story was first published in 2000 and is now being re-issued. I loved this story when I first read it and I loved reading and enjoyed again. The new cover adds to the enjoyment. The heroine, Miss Roma Allendyle is a very delightful and admirable one. The Hero is Lord Giles Carlton is a man who is, a hero of the first order. As with most heroes, Lord Giles will go all out to aid a Heroine who needs answers and is willing to get in to a bit of danger to save the day. I love reading Alexandra Ivy's books and I love the ones written under Debbie Raleigh pseudonym. I highly recommend this book.
Lord Carlton's Courtship is historical romance driven by a strong willed, unconventional heroine and the Lord who cannot help but love her. Giles, Lord Carlton is undercover for the crown and intercepting letters when he stumbles upon a young lad and a groom. After a shot wings the "lad", Giles soon discovers the lad is a "fiery sprite" with a red head of hair and a temper to match. Miss Roma Allendyle can ride and shoot with the best of them after being raised by a military father and refuses to be left out of the search for her brother. Giles and Roma butt heads and sizzle with all the passion that burns between them. Roma brings the rake to heel and knocks him down a peg or two but a relationship between the most sought after bachelor and a lowly military man's daughter is unlikely. Yet a fake engagement and a little danger lead to a remarkable HEA. I thoroughly enjoyed Roma's character, unique and memorable in the regency world and the woman we strive to be in today's world independent, strong, and more than worthy of any man. This book is a re-release under Alexandra Ivy's name, previously published under the Debbie Raleigh pen name. A lovely story that entertains to no end and literally, I could not put down. My voluntary, unbiased review is based upon a review copy from Netgalley.
All it took was one meeting with Roma Allendyle for Lord Giles Carlton to be completely besotted and one conversation to fall head over heels. But Roma isn't looking for a husband she looking for her missing brother and only after Carlton points out that as a woman she will get no information of anyone in the Home Office does she finally give in and let Carlton help her; that by no way means she going to stop looking herself. It bugs Roma that Carlton is helping her, she can't figure out his motive and the fact that he can find out information about her brother because he's a man really bugs her. Roma also keeps getting distracted by how handsome he is and why out of all the women in London he wishes to be with her a head strong, intelligent, country girl who hates London. She can't seem to realize Carlton's helping her is also his way or courting her too.
Overall, it's an quick (unless you are constantly distracted by your kids like I was) and easy read. I loved the characters and the action was pretty intense there at the end. It's a worthwhile read. I really loved the atypical courtship between Carlton and Roma. Review as always is Honestly and Voluntarily Given
