Part of the Lake and March Trilogy series

3.5 out of 5 (2 ratings)


From the moment the stranger burst into her antiquities shop in Rome, Lavinia Lake knew he was nothing but trouble.

He said he was in pursuit of a killer and swore he was only trying to save her.

Yet Lavinia was convinced that Mr. Tobias March was bent instead on destroying her. When the self-professed spy hustled her all the way back to England, Lavinia vowed she would find a way to repay him in full.

She never dreamed that Mr. March had in fact been telling the truth, that he had been hired to track down a powerful villain. And just as his investigation was heating up, he found it complicated by the most ungovernable, exasperating - and ever so slightly shady - woman he had ever met.

Lavinia most certainly never dreamed they would meet again, forced into partnership under shocking circumstances - or that their fiery disputes would spark a sizzling desire as overwhelming as the danger they faced....

Review by

Starting with the destruction of Lavinia Lake's antiquities shop by a Mr Tobias March who is in pursuit of a killer and determined to save Lavinia from possibly herself. The two end up teaming up in London and find themselves sharing adventures and terribly attracted to each other.It's a fun read, nothing to get terribly excited about and if you scratch the surface there are a lot of historical inaccuracies lurking but for it's type it isn't bad.

Review by

Two Minute Review for “Slightly Shady” by Amanda QuickTobias March is a private investigator who runs afoul of Lavinia Lake. This cantankerous little lady believes he is out to ruin her life. I would have loved to have listened to them fight. Every conversation was smart, snappy and with a ready to rumble attitude. I really like the energy of the novel. Yes, it is a romance but it also had elements of an old time mystery. No forensics, blood work or DNA evidence required.
