The Lady Is Trouble is a work of sizzling historical romance penned by author Tracy Sumner, and it forms the first novel in the League of Lords series. Set in the prim and proper times of Victorian England, this rebellious book leaps out of the traditional conventions to deliver a steamy tale that also touches on paranormal themes of psychic powers and mystical gifts. This unique combination sees rags-to-riches Julian Alexander, who feels ostracized by both his station and his psychic gifts, vowing to protect the healer and his love, Lady Piper Scott, from those who might utilize her gifts for their own ill ends. What results is a torrid romance with plenty of twists and thrills.

This novel feels like a very modern romance set amid the gothic and mystical splendor of Victorian England, so not all readers will appreciate the pseudo-historical background combined with feisty fantasy and a true battle of the sexes. But those that do are sure to love the wild rollercoaster of events and the atmospheric scenery that author Tracy Sumner has crafted to place her characters in and put them to the test. Julian and Piper fast become consumed by the well crafted sexual tension of their commonalities, and the plot takes them through many twists which keep the action fresh and the pages turning. Romance readers are sure to get all the sizzle that they desire from this heat level of the genre, and overall The Lady Is Trouble is a fast-paced and highly entertaining read.
