Overview
Unladylike Behavior

Frances Hadley has managed her family's estate for years. So why can't she request her own dowry? She'll have to go to London herself and knock some sense into the men interfering in her life. With the nonsense she's dealt with lately, though, there's no way she's going as a woman. A pair of breeches and a quick chop of her red curls, and she'll have much less to worry about. . .

Jack Valentine, third son of the famous Duchess of Love, is through being pursued by pushy young ladies. One particularly determined miss has run him out of his own house party. Luckily the inn has one bed left--Jack just has to share with a rather entertaining red-headed youth. Perhaps the two of them should ride to London together. It will make a pleasant escape from his mother's matchmaking melodrama

MacKenzie fumbles the follow-up to Bedding Lord Ned. Escaping a cartoonishly evil aunt's forced marriage plot, Miss Frances Hadley dons a cross-dressing disguise and ends up having to share a room at an inn with Lord Jack Valentine. When he discovers her identity, she sees no reason why this escapade should ruin her plans to set up solo housekeeping in a remote country cottage. She knows Lord Jack's rakish reputation, and marriage, which he so magnanimously proposes, is clearly not what either of them wants. But that doesn't discourage Lord Jack from trying to do the right thing; his determined do-gooder sensibilities also lead him to rescue babies, fund homes for orphans and ex-prostitutes, and hunt serial killers. Toggling between Jack's superheroism and Frances's depressing family problems makes it hard for the reader to know how seriously to take any aspect of this flimsy Regency-era story. (Mar.)
