About the book: 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 review: This book kept me interested from the very beginning. I loved the cunning plot, with Lucy telling Lord Drayson that he's in actuality Collins, her butler and really her man of all work simply because she was not happy that he was trying to sell his property where she and her mother resided in the dower house. I liked the way that she was so strong willed and not concerned about what people would think, in fact, it was her maid, Georgina, that was always trying to remind her to take care of her reputation.There were several parts during her charade that made me laugh out loud. But it was obvious that Lucy was a good person because of the degree of guilt she felt at lying to the earl.
I liked the earl too, not so much at the beginning, but I really started to like him during the part where he couldn't remember who he was. He really changed during that part and it made him more likable throughout the rest of the story.
This book has a cute plot and great characters. Make sure to grab your own copy!
I was sent an e-copy in exchange for an honest review.
