Book: The Fall of Lord Drayson by Rachael Anderson (Tanglewood Book 1)
Genre: Regency Romance, 296 pages
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?
This was one of the best books I’ve read by Rachael Anderson! (of course all her books are the best). This one is especially good, because I love Regency. This is classic regency as we have a sweet, sometimes rude, but redeemable hero in Lord Drayson. Our heroine is also sweet, but stubborn and sometimes naive. Just a great combination.
Lucy is lovable and completely stubborn and she is also in trouble because the Earl is kicking her out and her mother from their home so he can sell it. Lord Drayson is certainly in for a surprise when he tries to evict her. When Colin (Lord Drayson) falls and hits his head and the ladies of the house must care for him, Lucy takes advantage and then the antics begin. Lies, lies and more lies confuse the happy couple. Of course, no one means to lie, but they just need to fix things, so more confusion results. As they begin to fall in love, Lucy tries to tell Colin but he refuses to listen. This is a fun and sweet romance, full of chivalry and all that. You will not be disappointed when you read this book. If you love regency, then you will certainly enjoy this book.
I received a copy of this book in exchange for my honest review.
You will enjoy reading anything by Racheal Anderson. I'm looking forward to reading other books in this series.
