Mystery of the Heart {Book III the Ravensmoore Chronicles} by Jillian Kent

Book Description:  Lord Eden is intrigued by Lady Mercy Grayson’s secret, but how can he hope to gain her heart if he is forced to betray her?
Lady Mercy Grayson longs to be a physician like her older brother, Lord Ravensmoore. However, society would never tolerate a female physician, let alone one who is a noblewoman. So Mercy takes matters into her own hands, disguising herself as a man to get through medical school. But when a colleague grows suspicious, Mercy is in danger of losing more than her dreams.
Returning home from a secret voyage for the regent, Lord Eden agrees to give Mercy passage back to London. As their attraction to each other grows, they face circumstances, decisions, and treachery that could forever change the course of their lives.

My Thoughts:  I love this series.  Each book is a stand.alone.read so you don't have to read them in order.
Now the first two books in this series, Secrets of the Heart and Chameleon, are more about mental health and how it affects families and individuals.  Now in Mystery of the Heart the reader is introduced to Lady Mercy Grayson (Mercy is definitely a well chosen name for the main character of this read!)  Mercy has set her heart on becoming physician...a female doctor.  
Now becoming a female doctor in Regency England is somewhat like a female wanting to be a football player in our present day.  *Gasp* Why would a female want that?  And men (the male persuasion) will look down on a lady pursuing this profession.
This read begins with Lady Mercy being washed up on shore.  Wow!  It's one great read!  I loved page 23 when Mercy is rescued by a man with one blue eye and one brown eye.  Her curiosity gets.the.better.of.her and she gets a little too close.  With her rescuer making her blush.  Love that regency/victorian age of innocence.
Lady Mercy and Lord Eden have quite a story to tell.  There are many ups and downs and of course, this story includes the medical side of life.
I've read all of the books in this series and I must say this is my favorite read of the three.  Maybe because there is more romantic intrigue.
A wonderful series!
