The Lady Hellion (Wicked Deceptions Book 3) Kindle Edition
A rabble rouser for justice, Sophie's latest mission is to fight for the rights of the poor, the wretched--and the employees at Madame Hartley's brothel. She's not concerned about the criminals who will cross her path, for Sophie has mastered the art of deception--including the art of wearing trousers. Now her fate is in her own hands, along with a loaded gun. All she needs is instruction on how to shoot it. But only one person can help her: Lord Quint, the man who broke her heart years ago. The man she won't let destroy her again...
The last thing Damien Beecham, Viscount Quint, needs is an intrusion on his privacy, especially from the beautiful, exasperating woman he's never stopped wanting. A woman with a perilously absurd request, no less! For Damien is fighting a battle of his own, one he wishes to keep hidden--along with his feelings for Lady Sophia. Yet that fight is as hopeless as stopping her outlandish plan. Soon all Quint knows for certain is that he will die trying to protect her...

This also touches the subject of someone afflicted with phobia. But I can't get past the heroine's asinine recklessness with no thought of self-preservation.
Joanna Shupe is one of my 'one-click' authors, this novel's heroine just didn't tick all the boxes for me.
I love the idea of a woman in Regency England being able to get away with dressing like a man to help women! What a fun twist. Allowing her to bring Quint 'back' after he almost died, by not taking no for an answer was another example of thinking outside of the box. There were so many in this book. I also love that Quint loved her as she was. Not an innocent? No matter. Dressed like a man? No matter except he provided her with a guard. He was as much removed from the Regency period as Sophie was.
As in the previous books in this series, there is romance, a look at the seamy side of the Regency era, and what the main characters of the book and their friends were trying to do to help those less fortunate. The love story isn't lost by these actions, but in my opinion, enhanced. Add in Sophie's fathers dedication to England, Quint's expertise in solving ciphers and codes for the Crown, and their handler, you now have some quite tense moments that add to the story.
We get to see other characters from the last two books make an appearance towards the end to help get Quint out of the house, and insure Sophie's safety. We FINALLY find out who has been murdering the prostitutes!
All in all a fabulous end to the story and the series. If I could request that Ms. Shupe does a 'ten years later' story, I'd love it. I really want to see what's happened to all of these remarkably forward thinking people!
