When Colin Cavendish, the new earl of Drayson, informs Lucy Beresford that she and her mother need to vacate the house they’ve called home for the past two years, Lucy is fit to be tied. They have no money, no relations they can turn to for help, and nowhere to go. How dare the earl break the promise his father had made to the Beresfords without so much as a twinge of conscience?
Fate plays her hand when Lucy discovers the earl unconscious and injured in the middle of the road. When he awakens with no recollection of who he is, Lucy seizes the opportunity to teach the earl a much-needed lesson in humility and tells him that he is nothing more than a mere servant. Her servant, in fact.
And thus begins the charming tale of a pompous lord and an impetuous young woman, caught together in a web so tangled that it begs the question: Will they ever get out?
I stumbled across this title while browsing books on Amazon and the plot grabbed my attention. I did not know what to expect from this new-to-me author, but I loved it! What an enjoyabley fun read! This book was funny above all else, playful, and full of characters that were easy to read and love. I love a hero and heroine that can have witty banter, and this book delivered! The story moved along seemlessly and I found myself smiling as the pages few by! I loved Lucy and enjoyed watching her character maneuver the situation that she placed herself in with her dishonesty. Colin was a constant source of humor. His wit and sarcasm were consistent, but he also had a kindness and sincerity that came through at all the right moments. Together they provided a lot of fun situations and diologue. I loved it! I can’t wait to dive into the second book in the series! If you enjoy a lighthearted Regency story, you will love this book!
