When he stumbles upon a mystery involving a disappearing toll-gate keeper, nothing could keep the adventure-loving captain from investigating. But winning her will be his greatest yet… The plot thickens when John encounters the enigmatic L His exploits were legendary… Captain John Staple, back from the battlefront, is already bored with his quiet civilian life in the country. But winning her will be his greatest yet… The plot thickens when John encounters the enigmatic Lady Nell Stornaway and soon learns that rescuing her from her unsavory relatives makes even the most ferocious cavalry charge look like a particularly tame hand of loo.
Between hiding his true identity from Nell and the arrival in the neighborhood of some distinctly shady characters, Captain Staple finds himself embarked on the adventure-and romance-of a lifetime.

I don't think I'll ever love any of her mysteries the way I do some of her romantic comedies, but this was still an enjoyable read. Captain John Jack Staples has returned from the Napoleonic Wars and is trying to readjust to civilian life, which is boring him to tears. He takes off on horseback to visit an old friend out in the country, but manag Georgette Heyer wrote several mysteries both historical and contemporary as well as her more widely known and beloved Georgian and Regency romances.

He takes off on horseback to visit an old friend out in the country, but manages to get lost in the stormy night, and ends up at a toll-gate I had no idea they had those back then! Jack, lost and tired, convinces the boy to let him stay the night and promises to try to help him with his troubles in the morning. But morning brings more complications, including a tale of lost treasure as well as an attractive young woman, and Jack decides this is the adventure he's been waiting for.
Besides, the boy's father is still missing, and someone has to man the toll-gate! I liked the hero, Jack Staples, a handsome giant of a man with curly blond hair BTW it still irks me that the cover of my paperback has a dark-haired guy. He's brave, kindhearted and a little stubborn. He doesn't think he'll ever get married, and tells his mother: "But the thing is I've got no fancy for one of these dashed suitable marriages where you don't really care a fig for the girl, or she for you.
I don't mean to offer marriage to any girl who doesn't give me [a] leveller. So I daresay I shall remain a bachelor, for they don't--any of 'em! And if one did ," he added thoughtfully, "it's Lombard Street to a China orange that you wouldn't take to her. I think focusing on the mystery freed Georgette Heyer to give us a nice, sweet, straightforward romance. And they never have a misunderstanding or major fight! It was kind of refreshing, actually. But the mystery, rather than the romance, is the focus of our tale here, so don't go in expecting this to be like a typical GH romance.

The romance is definitely a subplot. Between that and the fact that the entire story is told from Jack's point of view, you don't get to know the heroine as well as you typically would.
