When Lucinda and her two friends, Evie and Georgianna, prepared lists to teach gentlemen of their choosing some rather useful lessons in proper behavior, the last thing they expected was to end up married to the men that they chose. Lucinda is still to find someone and since she realizes how her friends ended up married to the men they chose she decides to look for one that would suit herself...as husband material.

As Lucinda discusses her list with her friends at Georgianna`s home, and tries to decide who to choose as her subject, she ends up facing Robert Carroway, one of Georgianna`s brothers-in-law. She had met him before but ever since his return from the war, wounded, three years ago, he has been a recluse. On that accidental meeting he asks her a rather unsettling question.

After three years spent in the dark, Robert Carroway decides that it is time for him to try and come back from his self-imposed exile. Someone that he has been observing from afar during her visits to his sister-in-law is his motivation. Lucinda fills his thoughts, and knowing of her little scheming to find a husband, he decides to take action, even if only to have a chance to get to know her better under the pretext of helping her out with the man of her choosing.

England`s Perfect Hero is the third title in Suzanne Enoch`s Lessons in Love series. Despite the fact that I have not yet read the first two titles of the series, I had no problems following the storyline. However, there are recurrent characters and I found myself wishing that I had, as now I am quite intrigued. The book has a nicely developed plot with characters to match that keep the reader`s attention glued to every single page from beginning to end. Both main characters, Robert Carroway, our “tortured” hero, and Lucinda, an intelligent, sensible heroine, are engaging and appealing. I found England`s Perfect Hero to be an excellent and delightful read. I most definitely intend to read the previous two titles in the series. This book definitely belongs in my “keeper” shelf.
