Despite being beautiful and wealthy, Lady Susanna Macalister's marriage prospects are rather lacking. Unwilling to let an opportunity pass her by, she decides a loveless marriage is better than spinsterhood, as it will allow her to continue her charities.

The life of Ian Carlisle, the Earl of Westcott, has been overshadowed by darkness and guilt for the past decade. Having abandoned his family when he was eighteen, Ian's position within a secret division of the government has provided him an escape from the guilt he feels over the death of his sister.

When the Earl's horse almost tramples Susanna in the middle of Hyde Park, Ian embraces the chance encounter as a possibility for redemption, for Susanna's soon-to-be fiancé is the man Ian holds responsible for the death of his sister. Can this damaged lord hope to absolve the guilt he feels for failing his beloved sister by saving this vibrant, and unsuspecting lady from a similar fate? And will this charity-minded well-bred lady, who is not the perfectly bound book as Ian assumes, be willing to take a chance on the unstable earl, when something more dignified and permanent is well within reach?

Rated 4 out of 5 by from You won't be disappointed! You won't be disappointed! <b> A Suitable Affair </b> is a light-hearted and entertaining read. Lady Susanna Macallistar, the heroine of the story, finds herself with a large dowry but she is falling short in her search for eligible suitors. The one gentleman who has offered to court her is too compliant and boring, a stark contrast to her own vibrant and adventurous personality. After a random and potentially dangerous encounter with a stranger in Hyde park, Susanna finds herself drawn to the newcomer, Ian Carlisle, the handsome Earl of Westcott. Ian has trouble ignoring the magnetism between Susanna and himself but his affection is clouded by his troubled past and his quest to bring a murderer to justice. Susanna turns out to have a few secrets of her own as she struggles between society's expectations of a Lady and her own ambitions. The writing style at the beginning of <b> A Suitable Affair </b> is verbose in my opinion. The author uses too many words in the characters dialogue and some of the sentences and descriptions are awkward. Susanna does not need to describe in length her motivation behind everything and she often repeats the same thing in two different ways in one conversation. After the first few chapters the writing style becomes less forced and the characters conversations flow more smoothly. The plot is entertaining from the beginning with the murder mystery keeping the storyline complex and engaging. And of course the romance isn't too bad either! I appreciate that Susanna's character is not just adventurous and witty but she is also brave and intelligent. The more the plot progresses the more interesting and developed Susanna's character becomes. I would definitely not hesitate to recommend <b> A Suitable Affair </b> to my friends and I think if some of the wordiness in the first few chapters could be edited out I would definitely raise my 4 to a 5 out of 5. I also want to thank Amberjack Publishing and NetGalley for a chance to read an advanced copy of <b> A Suitable Affair </b>.

Editorial Reviews

"The book is unputdownable. It is so incredibly well written and ever little chapter has its own twists. No, this is not your normal stupid regency romance, this is the marriage between an extremely well-written romance book and a great detective novel. Just what I like, love and need!" - Lieze Neven, The Write Way
