Nearly a Lady - Alissa Johnson Excellent historical romance - my first from Johnson, but I'll definitely seek out more of her books. I loved the interaction between the strong-willed, tomboyish heroine and the generous but guarded hero. Winnefred ("Freddie") and Gideon were perfectly matched in their characters and principles, and were so obviously meant for one another. Their romance developed slowly but truthfully, and every moment of it was believable. Great setting and secondary characters too - I definitely recommend this one.
