Earlier she had seen couples out for an evening stroll. Men and women walking hand in hand, riding in open carriages side to the toasty comfort of their homes. The street was littered with vehicles moving so fast that no one paid much attention to anyone else. And certainly no one would notice a hunched and drunken man stumbling along the sidewalk. Willow dressed slowly, watching the last orange-purple rays of daylight being swallowed by the black of night.

Reviews about Almost a Lady (5):
Cae
I love the characters. Willow Hastings is my kind of woman. A Pinkerton agent who sometimes dresses as a man and knows how to wield a knife and gun? Brandt Donovan is a bit of a misogynist at first and definitely arrogant.

Willow Hastings is a Pinkerton agent out to find the murderer of a fellow employee. In order to get the case she makes a deal with her boss, and finds herself playing wife to the irritating Brandt Donovan. When Brandt's not aggravating her, he's driving her to distraction in a totally carnal way. These two headstrong people have a murder to find, but as they're searching they find something else. Could it be love?
Heidi Betts combines a heart-thumping historical romance with a heart-pounding mystery in this delightful story!

When it comes to romances I tend to be really critical. Overall, I did not like this book. But I did enjoy it enough to finish (and only saying "whatever" a few times). I thought that both of the characters were rather immature. Yes it's a romance. But the constant rambling about how much Brandt lusted for Willow was a little overloaded. We have a murder to solve...but romping in the sack is much more important. And the murder...oh yeah...that was obvious...maybe I would've liked this book better if it had a little mystery to it.

This was a good book for a fast escape read. The mystery was well executed and the characters were realistic -- and the history of the Pinkerton Women a a good piece of historic "trivia" with which to base a novel. Personally, I think Willow gave in too soon and too often. With the mystery involved, the sex scenes actually detracted from the book. But I give it 4 stars for a fast escape read.

Love Willow and Brandt. Neither is wimpy. I dislike heroines who can't stand up to the hero. Makes me wonder what the guys see in these spineless females. Also, the treatment of her brother is so sweet. I look forward to reading more books by Ms. Betts.
