The Likelihood of Lucy (Regency Reformers #2) by Jenny Holiday

Danger and desire are explosive in the newest romance from Select Historical!

She would never bow to any man...

London, 1815

Trevor Bailey is on the cusp of opening the greatest hotel in London. His days as a gutter snipe are behind him, as he enjoys a life of wealth, society, and clandestine assignments as a spy in the service of the Crown. Until one tumultuous night churns up the past he'd long left behind...

Turned out by her employer for her radical beliefs, Lucy Greenleaf reaches out to the man who was once her most beloved friend. She never expected that the once-mischievous Trevor would be so handsome and gentleman-like and neither can deny the instant attraction.

But Lucy's reformer ways pose a threat to the hotel's future and his duties as a spy. Now Trevor must choose between his new life and the woman he's always loved...

My review:
If you like spunky bluestockings then you will adore Lucy Greenleaf.  Lucy and Trever came up the hard way yet managed to make something of themselves until Lucy is fired for sharing her “radical” beliefs with the children in her care.  She turns to Trevor for help and that’s where the story gets good.
This is a must read for historical fans.  This story takes place when major changes are taking place in England and the world. The characters are witty and fun. I heartily recommend and though this is the second in the series it can be read standalone.
