Just Perfect, is the story of Hannah and Lord Mallory. A very romantic story set in Regency England.

I really enjoyed the characters and the way they tease and seduce each other, especially Lord Mallory. Hannah isn't looking for a husband, and is surprised when she comes to like Lord Mallory. She's heard so much about him from her friend who thinks the man is just perfect! But Hannah isn't certain. He appears to be a perfect gentleman, but the perfect husband? He's a peculiar man who's unafraid to engage in flights of fancy, one whom acknowledges ghostly knights and princesses, legendary kings and queens and even acknowledges that faeries and elves might rule the land that he owns. He even nicknames one of the lads that works for him "Elf", so who would want to kill such a man? Can Hannah deduce who the killer is in time to save Mallory's life, and her own?

The story is interesting and there is discovery and romantic tension. I like more romantic interludes between the characters and this story was a bit sparse. It was very easy to read, especially with interesting secondary characters and even a puppy or two. In general, it's a nice story, and if you like stories of lords and ladies in Regency England, you'll find this just perfect.
