Not Quite A Gentleman by Jacquie D'Alessandro

Three years ago, Lady Victoria Wexhall was humiliated when Nathan Oliver waltzed brazenly out of her life after favoring her with one glorious kiss ... her very first!
Now, when her father insists she pay a visit to Nathan's family estate in Cornwall, the pampered Society beauty devises a plan to drive the heartless rake mad with desire, then drop him cold. Because the man is a cad -- and he will rue the day he trifled with her affections!

But Victoria's plan isn't the only plot that's afoot. Nathan's sworn duty to the Crown has immersed him in a perilous intrigue, and he is certain this infuriatingly tempting lady is somehow involved. Using his winning charm and sensuous allure, Nathan intends to discover the lady's secrets.

And the dashing rogue is bound and determined to prove that, while not quite a gentleman, he is every bit a lover!

Another reread. My friend loaned me this book and I loved it so much I had to buy it.

There are a few cliches:
The stolen kiss between Victoria and Nathan
Nathan's disappearance because turns out he was a spy
Victoria wanting revenge

But I still loved this book. It's not exactly the revenge plot I thought it was going to be.

Nathan and Victoria end up working together to find a missing bag of jewels. While looking for the jewels, the two get to know each other. Nathan finds himself falling in love her, but knows she wants better than marrying a doctor and living in the country. Victoria, who has always known that she had to marry well, starts second guessing her future.

I loved how Nathan told Victoria since he's a second son, he has no reason other than love to marry. He explains he's happy he's not a first son cause he's free to do what he wants. Which surprise's Victoria thinking all men wanted to be titled.

But I really love how Nathan gave her his copy of fairy tales. The one he said he'd never give up cause it was the last thing his mother gave him before she dies. *sniff*

Love this book.
