#Review: THE LADY AND MR. JONES by Alyssa Alexander




  5 of 5 stars

Elizabeth Frances Catherine Ashdown, Cat, Baroness Worthington, is frustrated that her father put her properties in trust at his death and she cannot access them until she's 35 or married. Her Uncle Wycomb is her guardian until she turns 21 and he's pushing her to marry his choice, but Cat wants to marry for love. What Cat doesn't know is Wycomb is one of the Crown's spies, but he's being investigated by another spy, Jones, at the orders of his superior. When Cat accidentally stumbles across Jones, she feels an instant connection with him. The more time she spends with him, the more she wants from him, but her uncle is using more than words to make Cat comply with his choice of husbands.

Ms. Alexander weaves a powerful story of want, desire, friendship and love. I loved Jones, a man so honorable, that only he cannot accept he could deserve to be with someone of Cat's station. He's a complicated character and the more I know out about him, the more I was rooting for him and Cat to end up together. The story is so much more than just about Cat and Jones. The story reunites previous characters and Cat's uncle Wycomb, a man who is being turned by greed. I love Ms. Alexander's writing and anxiously await the next book in the series.

I received a copy of this book in exchange for a fair and honest review.
