The Runaway Countess by Leigh LaValle

The Runaway Countess by Leigh LaValle.
This is book one in the Nottinghamshire series.

Mazie Chetwyn has been taken captive by the Lord Lieutenant of Nottinghamshire. He knows that she has been working for the Midnight Rider and wants information to enable him to be captured. 

Trent Chathwick, the Earl of Radford and the Lord Lieutenant of Nottinghamshire, is attracted to Mazie from their introduction and the feeling is mutual. When he finds out that she is really Lady Margaret, he is at a loss as to what to do with her.

Lady Margaret goes from captive to "guest" with Trent's sister acting as chaperone, but Mazie still finds ways to thwart Trent's ability to find the Midnight Rider by giving him false clues. 

Will Trent find out why Mazie will not give up information about the Midnight Rider and what will happen to their mutual attraction when it looks like Mazie might be heading to the gallows?

I throughly enjoyed this book. The banter between the H/H had me laughing out loud.  I always love when there is a very strong female lead and Mazie did not disappoint. The strength of character in Trent was heartbreaking as he had to reveal things about his family that he didn't want to be true.  I can't wait to read the next book in the series.

You can get the book at Amazon, and Barnes & Noble.
