England's Perfect Hero by Suzanne Enoch
This book would make a good movie. There's just a lot of spy/war stuff that would translate well to film. I loved the hero - Robert Carroway - an ex-soldier traumatized psychologically from his war service. The heroine - Lucinda - starts out looking to snag the type of man she thinks she wants, when Robert kind of falls into her lap. At first he goes about helping her to trap her unsuspecting young man, but soon the two end up falling for each other. The romance between Robert & Lucinda is the best part of the book. I love the part when he takes her out riding and she asks about having a chaperone. She says that she should be flattered because, to her, it means that he sees her as an equal rather than a delicate little flower in need of supervision. I recommend this book for the romance but I could have done without a lot of the war storyline.
