Who is he really? A high and mighty lord or a lowly servant?
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?
What a fun read! Lucy and her mother are in danger of getting kicked out of their home, so when Lucy sees an opportunity to delay it, she takes it. Shortly after Colin Cavendish, the new earl, has informed Lucy that they need to vacate the property, she finds him unconscious and injured with no recollection of who he is. She tells him he's her servant and it just gets better from there. I loved the chemistry between Lucy and Colin. They made me laugh and kept me thoroughly entertained from beginning to end. Lucy got herself into quite a predicament and I wondered how she would get out of it. She's a spunky, fun character! Colin started out high and mighty but it didn't take long to fall in love with him, too. If you enjoy clean regency romance, this is a book you will definitely want to read! It looks like this is the first book in a series and I'm looking forward to reading more!
