Lady Christa Eatson has given up on the hope of love and marriage.
So instead, she’ll have to find other ways to entertain herself…
Her entire world is turned upside down the day she agrees to help an old friend on a scavenger hunt for a hidden jewel through Mayfair.
But what seems like an innocent adventure quickly reveals itself to be a mystery full of murder, courtesans, and their carnal inclinations.
But nothing is more shocking than the man who comes to her aid…
Joseph Croftman – He has a dark past, but her childish crush for the man has never quite left her heart.
As one of London’s wealthiest men, Joseph Croftman has the means to pick any wife he wishes, but the women of the Ton seem all alike. Selfish gossips wrapped in silk skirts.
He’s ready to settle down, but knows he’ll never find a love match… that is until Lady Christa slowly begins to change his mind.
When their paths cross, Joseph is intrigued to see a different Christa…
She is no longer an annoying little girl, but a woman with a mind just as enchanting as her form.
What starts out as chance to simply help find a piece of jewelry, quickly changes into a love that can last a lifetime.
But can Christa truly trust this man with her heart? And if she does, can they manage to survive the darkness that walks the streets of Mayfair?

Once again, Eleanor Meyers has done it again. Creating that perfect historical romance tale. One that has readers wrapped around it’s pages. I found myself with wanting and need to read this tale. After I read it, I felt happy that I did. It was everything I expected plus, more. Eleanor Meyers has that raw talent in creating characters that rub each other in the right ways…their chemistry sparks hot yet the tale is clean. It’s hard work to create the sexy sensual scenes and still maintain a proper clean tale at the same; however, Eleanor Meyers always succeeds in this area. I love her characters. Beyond the beauty and riches her characters are down to earth souls. Each with a task that needs accomplishing and that’s how they find themselves once again. It takes that particular moment and their past as well as the present collide. Hearts racing, suspense in overdrive, and a need to finish the story is great. Gaining the Gentleman is the latest romance regency book by Eleanor Meyers. I am hooked. Compelling characters, well-written plots, and a thirst to read more by this talented writer. The intrigue of what will come of two past acquaintances settled on finding and solving a case will set readers on one epic journey. The characters prove that they are both more than what they appear. I really liked how Eleanor Meyers wove that into her book. Overall, I highly recommend this engaging tale to all.
