Lady Annica Sayles has a mission in life, to find justice for women who have been wronged by men. Haunted by her parentsí tumultuous marriage, Annica is determined to remain a spinster, in order to carry out her mission. However, Lord Tristan Sinclair has other ideas, he is enchanted by Annica and will do anything to make her his wife, even deceive her. Unfortunately, they both are involved in trying to find those responsible for the disappearance of 28 women in London. Annica is bent on defying social standards and Tristan by spending time investigating on the wrong side of town, which drives Tristan crazy. Tristan has been seen in the company of unsavory men, which worries Annica. The trouble comes when Annica and Tristan hide their activities from each other. Can these two find love and justice, before those who are after Annica and Tristan find them and they disappear forever?

Gail Ranstromís book A Wild Justice is a wonderful glimpse into the life of an unusual woman and the man who loves her. The characters come to life as soon as one opens the book. This reader found Annica and Tristan to be a refreshing change from normal regency characters. Lady Annica is a strong woman, who is not afraid to act on her beliefs; Lord Tristan is not ashamed of Lady Annica and supports her and her causes. It gave this reader some hope that not every woman in the Regency period was frivolous and not every man was domineering. The plot based upon the world of white slavery is a full of twists and turns and had this reader cheering for Lady Annica and Lord Tristan at the end. Ranstromís debut book is a wonderful read and she is an author to watch in the future.
