Slightly Shady : Number 1 in series Paperback
by Amanda Quick
Part of the Lake and March Trilogy series
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 wyvernfriend
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.

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.
