Image of No Place For a Lady (Regency #892)

Allen proves her forte is writing Regency romances with this tale about an unusual pair of characters caught in a love neither expects. But what starts out as a rollicking story with a unique heroine soon turns into another marriage mart-based novel with a feisty heroine turning into a simpering miss.

When there's no one to drive one of her coaches to the next station on the line, Bree Mallory takes up the reins. She's almost there when she's nearly run off the road by a wildly careening carriage. When she finally encounters the driver Bree is furious, yet Max Dysart, Lord Penrith, is more intrigued then annoyed by her tirade.

But she's in trade and he's an aristocrat, and never the twain shall marry, until her noble half-brother invites Bree into the ton. The once businesswoman is transformed into a "lady" who Max is ready to woo. But it's not easy to convince the strong-willed Bree to give up her freedom for love. (Harlequin, Apr., 300 pp., $5.99)
