In 1838, an adult Kit inherits an estate in Ireland. Though his adoptive parents are saddened by his departure, Kit knows it is time to venture into the world. However, Kit may feel like a bit of déjà vu as he learns that along with his earldom, he is the guardian of a nearly twenty-one year old baker, Mariah Shaunessy. Kit realizes he must teach Mariah to behave like a lady so she can have a London season. However, she wants his love more than anything else she desires in the world. As they begin to bond and learn of their shared past, an unknown enemy has ugly other ideas for their future.

ALWAYS A LADY is an engaging historical romance starring two charmingly delightful lead protagonists. Though the return of the stars of ONCE A MISTRESS is short, fans of Rebecca Hagan Lee will enjoy seeing how gracefully they have aged together. The intrigue adds little but suspense to an enchanting early Victorian love story.
