    Overall good read.

    Not Always A Saint gave me a chance to get reacquainted with Mary Jo Putney. I have always liked her ability to focus on her characters frailties and gradually ease her readers into their strengths. By doing this it allows the reader to look at both characters with a more empathetic eye and not become judgmental too quickly. That is a great quality for any writer. The complexity of this story makes that skill a lot more noticeable. Daniel's strength is being a doctor and helping people . His weakness is blaming himself for events that can't be changed. Doing this causes him to miss out on remarkable experiences. Jessie weakness is her ability to trust people. Her lot in life has caused her undeniable pain because of her looks. Beneath her beauty lies an insecure individual. There were times I found the story to be wordy, but I still believe Not Always a Saint to be a well defined regency read. I received an ARC in exchange for an honest review.

    Bad writing

    Stiff characters, cliché plot, wooden dialogue. Give this one a pass. Everything a historical romance should not be.

    Sweet enjoyable read

    This is the story of Jessie Kelham, a gentlewoman, by birth, who has had many trials and tribulations. She was raised by her vicar father who taught her that women were the worst sort of creatures. Useless in his eyes and not worth his time, or love. Her mother died when she was very young. Daniel Herbert grew up with love, but some disappointment. His parents wanted him to enter the clergy, but he wanted to study medicine. He lost his love at a young age so he did both, one for them and one for him. When his sister married, he was happy for her, but the marriage did not suit, so she left her husband. Daniel learned more about his parents in that moment that she needed them, they disowned her! He took her in and together they started a medical practice. One evening as they were closing for the night, a badly beaten woman showed up on their doorstep. Her injuries were terrible, but would heal. Daniel did all he could for her, gave her 20 pounds and she fled into the night. That is the night that he and his sister, Laurel, decided to open a home for women and children who are abused. Daniel comes into an unexpected, and unwanted inheritance and title. He then decides he needs a wife to run things so he can go on in his normal manner. Someone not too pretty, with experience in running an estate. He does not plan on Jessie Kelham. Jessie has suffered the death of her husband and now her daughter is in danger from a relative who believes the estate and title should be his. She is in need of a husband. Someone older, not prone to drinking or gamble, who can help her protect her daughter’s inheritance. She does not plan on Daniel Herbert, now Lord Romayne, They are attracted to each other, but she has secrets and must be careful. The attraction is very intense. I really enjoyed this story of trials and triumphs! The characters are likable people, certainly not perfect! But good hearted people that you would like to know. The past will haunt them until they can come to terms with it. But a happy ending may be in their future! Excellent writing!
