Book Description: 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?
My thoughts: Oh my goodness! I can't think of anything that I didn't love about this book. I loved the time period, the setting, the characters, the plot, .....etc. I felt let down because it ended.
Lucy and her mother live in a dowager house on a property (Tanglewood) that is about to be sold. When Colin informs Lucy that she must vacate the property you can tell that there are a few sparks, but they are on opposite sides of the issue. Lucy and her mother can't afford to live anywhere else and for Colin it is business. He is getting rid of an unprofitable piece of real estate.
Colin and Lucy compliment each other in so many ways. Their patience and understanding of the other is fun, particularly due to the circumstances, Lucy has lead Colin to believe he is her servant after he looses his memory from a fall off of his horse. The sparks fly between the two, but she is living a lie and doesn't know how to make it right.
The secondary characters are wonderful. It looks as if Rachael Anderson is planning on making this into a series. I would love to find out more about the people in the community. I found them to be an eclectic group and want to get to know them better.
This is a clean romance with kissing.
About the Author: (Taken from Goodreads) A USA Today bestselling author of clean romance, Rachael Anderson is the mother of four and is pretty good at breaking up fights, or at least sending guilty parties to their rooms. She can't sing, doesn't dance, and despises tragedies. But she recently figured out how yeast works and can now make homemade bread, which she is really good at eating.
