Lady of Mystery: A Regency Romance (The Unconventional Ladies Book 1) Kindle Edition
He’s predictable. She’s a mystery. Can love bridge all that separates them?
Raised to believe the world is open to her, Lady Phoebe Winters reads periodicals and newspapers with growing upset. Everything within her world is shaped by a man’s point of view. Why must women stand idly by, being told what to do and how to do it? It seems to be accepted within their society — until she decides to do something about it. Using her inheritance, she begins a small publication, written by women, for women. It’s a risk, but one for which she is willing to sacrifice.
Jeffrey Worthington, the Marquess of Berkley, has held a position of responsibility since the death of his father at a young age. He is a man who enjoys the constancy of life. Despite the fact that his four sisters and younger brother are forever demanding his time and attention, his maintains order and control of all other aspects of life.
The Women’s Weekly begins to cause a stir amongst women of the nobility, and the peerage determines it must be shut down before it causes consequences from which they could never recover. Jeffrey is tasked with finding the perpetrator and halting production of the publication. He reluctantly agrees, despite the fact that it will detract from his attempt to court the lovely Lady Phoebe, and causes growing controversy between the two of them. When he finally determines the publication’s owner, what will he put first — love or duty?
This is the second edition of Lady of Mystery, which was previously published.

She decides its unfair and is determined to right this wrong. With funds left her by her parents she starts "The Women's Weekly", a paper run by woman for woman.
Phoebe has three ladies that are like sister to her. Julia, Sarah and Elizabeth who try to keep her out of trouble. After having a confrontation with a gentleman who over heard her talking to her friends she is very upset. Jeffrey Worthington, The Marquess of Berkley is everything all ladies of the ton are looking for. He is very handsome, wealthy and will needs to marry to carry on the family line. He is the top pick of the mothers of the ton. Not someone who would even look at someone like her.
Now they seem to run into each other a lot. He is very stuffy, opinionated and arrogant ! So why does he make her so feel so funny. After he finds a copy of "The Women's Weekly' on his own table being read by his sisters ( four of them) he is furious.
He is tasked by other gentleman of the ton to find who is behind the paper and put a stop to it.
Phoebe hears about the plan and decides the best way to know what he is up to is pretend to like him and keep him close. Oh, my neither expect what the other is up to. With help or interference from all his sister, his mother and the cutest dog, Maxwell thing get out of hand fast.
Keeping secrets could either bring them closer or ruin everything when they come to light.
With all that is going on between them, there is another who is bent on evil unknown to them.
What a great story, can't put it down. Secrets, mystery, Intrigue and lots of kisses and love.
This has some steamy scenes for those who want to know.
I received and ARC from the author and wish to thank her. This is my honest opinion and my freely giving it.
Very enjoyable story. I loved the interaction between Jeffrey and his sisters and mother. They seemed like a great family, except for their brother. And Aunt Aurelia was the type of chaperone every girl would want. And don’t forget Maxwell the lovable dog. I hope you enjoy the story as I did.
