Publisher's Summary

An arrogant lord cut off by his family. A penniless widow in desperate need. In their reduced circumstances, can love save them both? 

Lord Neil Duncan, third son of the Marquess of Alderton, finally angers his father enough to be cut off from the family. Neil believes it is only a matter of time before he is reinstated, but time is passing slowly and he needs to eat. His so-called friends have abandoned him, no one else trusts him, and it is not until he comes upon a young widow that he finds someone who needs his help as badly as he needs hers. 

Teresa Clapham has been without a husband's provision and protection for over a year. Supporting her mother and daughter on the pittance her brother-in-law provides has required her to stretch every farthing. When Lord Neil arrives at her doorstep proposing he work for her to earn his keep, she sees possibility in the man everyone else has deemed an arrogant good-for-nothing. 

As Lord Neil works for the first time in his life, Teresa sees in him a tender heart long repressed by his family's expectations - a heart that causes her own to open once more. But her brother-in-law John Clapham is less charmed by Teresa’s new servant. When Lord Neil discovers the secret Mr. Clapham has been keeping, he must decide whether to embrace the man Teresa believes him to be, or fall back on the privileged lifestyle he’s always known.

A well-deserved happy ever after

After seeing the character in other stories in this series, I had hoped he would get his own story! I knew there was more to him than is implied, and so enjoyed how his story unfolded.

Second chances and finding a love so true

This story was such a touching one. The beginning...that was downright heartbreaking. It was so sad and coupled with how the narrator read it, it touched something deep within. It was a hard road for all the characters and some of the revelations were surprising. It did provide though such a wonderful definition of love.

A Lovely Story of Redemption

Lord Neil has been cut off from his family, and with no where to turn he stumbles upon the humble home of Teresa Clapham and her mother, Until the sudden death of her husband, Teresa had been well-off but upon her husband's death she finds herself impoverished. In their impoverished state, Teresa and her mother have learned to work hard and provide for themselves. In exchange for his labor, Teresa and her mother allow Lord Neil to stay at their farm, and with the assistance of hard labor and someone believing in him, Lord Neil begins to reform. This is such a lovely story of growth, redemption, and love. So glad that Sally Britton wrote such a wonderful story for Lord Neil. This book left me feeling warm and happy. Sally is a great writer, and she writes characters with depth; I love everything that she writes. The narrator effortlessly changes voices with skill.

I loved this book and this series!!!

If you've been following this Inglewood series then you'll know that Lord Neil isn't the most sought after and loved character. But in Engaging Sir Isaac, I started to have a different perspective of Lord Neil and wondered if there was more depth and goodness to him than first meets the eye. I was very excited to listen to this audiobook and dive into Neil's story. I loved seeing deeper into his character and personality and what makes him tick. Let me tell you that I was not disappointed at all! I loved it. It all made me so happy. Ok, there were some other emotions involved, as is usually when I read and listen to books. Lol! Some frustration, a few "grrrrrs" were heard out of my mouth, many giggles, a few sighs and possibly a few other emotions and sound effects. What can I say other than I am an involved reader. I get invested in my characters and can't help but cheer them on and tell them what I think and react emotionally while reading/listening. Teresa's story pulled at my heart and made me feel several of the above mentioned emotions as well. She was such a great character. I appreciated her goodness and strength and fierce loyalty and love for her family. I loved that she took a chance on Lord Neil and accepted his help and offered help in return. Their sweet story of friendship and finding love was tender and sweet. There were moments of sadness too but overall I just adored these two. I was so happy to learn that he was more than what he appeared to be in the previous books. I find that's so true in real life as well. We only see and perceive certain things about each other but when we really truly take the time to learn more about each other we have a greater understanding and better perception. There's some sleuthing and lots of character growth throughout this story as well as the budding friendship and romance. How the book finished and everything was tied up just made me smile and cheer for these characters! Loved it! The narrator was wonderful. I've loved how she's brought Sally Britton's characters to life and takes me back to Inglewood every time I hear her voice when I start each book. Well done! Content: Clean. Happy Reading!!!

My favorite Britton book so far!

I LOVED this redemption story... I was so intrigued that Lord Neil had a story in this series and a reformation and a romance, I was curious what it would entail and how I would feel about the characters, especially Neil. Neither Neil nor Teresa's lives were what they had expected or desired but they were willing to work hard and persevere and find happiness. If Lord Neil can change and improve, then it's possible for anyone. This story was natural, heartwarming, transforming, engaging and hopeful. I highly recommend this well written and well read audiobook for fans of sweet and clean Regency Romance and Sally Britton's books!

A spectacular clean romance

I absolutely loved this audiobook! (I haven't been let down by a Sally Britton book yet!) The story is a little different than the typical "boy meets girl" that we all know and love; Especially if you have read the other books in this series that give so much background to the main male character (which I highly recommend. This book is good on it's own, but it's even better after having read the other books). The characters are well developed, and easily come to life. I have found Sally Britton to have a special talent for that. I come to love each and every one of her characters. The narrator does a marvelous job. She is so easy to listen to. The words flow very well, and she is great at expressing the emotions behind the characters words and thoughts, but without going overboard to do so. I have loved listening to audiobooks with her as a narrator. I hope she continues to do Sally's books for a long time. I would highly recommend this audiobook to anyone who is looking for a sweet, clean, regency romance that they can listen to even if they are doing chores at the same time.

Wonderful Series Conclusion

While this can be read on it's own as a standalone, I personally don't recommend doing so. I think I enjoyed it so much because of the history I have with Lord Neil throughout the series. He's that character pictured as both a villain and a friend in the first four books, depending on the perspective. He's slyly heroic and searching for happiness in not quite the right places. At the beginning of Reforming Lord Neil, he is as one would expect his character to be from reading the others: self-absorbed, lackadaisical, and intentionally dependent on his father's title and money. When he's cut off, Neil finds himself with nowhere to go and no one to champion his cause, at the mercy of a widow with her own set of financial woes. Teresa Clapham has little prospects beyond a dilapidated farm to manage with her mother and daughter after her brother-in-law coerces her to leave the life she has for over 10 years. When Neil Duncan arrives on her doorstep, she accepts his help in exchange for room and board. I love redemption stories and big opportunities for character growth. I also love that Neil's transgressions and actions from Rescuing Lord Inglewood are addressed. As much as I wish this series would continue, it ends very satisfactorily. I received a complimentary copy from the author. all thoughts in this review are my own.

A satisfactory reformation

I read this when it was first released and just listened to it. I enjoy this narrator. It made the story as enjoyable the second time as the first. Lord Neil was a character I wanted to see have his own story nearly from the start of the series. And Mrs Clapham was such a wonderful character.

Love this story!

This was another great installment in the Inglewood series! I am so glad that Neil was able to get his own story since we get to see him slowly changing over the course of a few of the books in the series.  Britton is amazing at writing characters that feel real and that her reader's can connect with and I loved the characters in this book!  I loved seeing the growth in all the characters throughout the book and how their relationships grew.  It was so fun to see a few characters from the other books in the series in Neil's story as well! I loved how everything played out and loved the setting! I hope there are more books in this series! I highly recommend this book and series to Regency romance fans! Marian Hussey does a great job narrating this book!

Who knew one could root so much for Lord Neil?

Sally Britton has managed to pull off what no one could have imagined after reading Rescuing Lord Inglewood, that is, to reform and redeem Lord Neil. And oh, what a journey it was. Granted, that's why it's necessary to read the series in order, or at least, Engaging Sir Isaac before this one, (in order to start seeing his change of heart), but still, getting to read about his thoughts and motivations, as well as having him face a new set of challenges in his circumstances made for a thoroughly enjoyable experience. Of course, the reader wouldn't have been able to see/experience much of this change were it not for Mrs. Teresa Clapham's character, as well as her family. I loved how these two found each other when they needed it the most, and how they were able to help each other in different ways throughout the book. Their love story was definitely swoony, and I definitely loved the pace of it as well as the warm feelings it evoked. Of course, having some of the previous couples in the series make an appearance was definitely great :). // Now, this being an audiobook upped the enjoyable factor by a thousand since, once again, Marian Hussey delivered a wonderful performance of each and every one of the characters. It doesn't matter if it was as young as Caroline (Teresa's daughter), or as old as a magistrate, or if, on the other hand, the characters were having a heated argument, were being threatening to others, or were having a tender moment, she nailed every single one of them 🙌. // Thus, if you love Sally Britton's work, or if you're just a fan of Sweet Historical Romance books, I can't recommend this audiobook and this series enough. Go and grab your copy! ~ 5 stars

Finally a story for our Lord Neil!

Reforming Lord Neil is the fifth book in the Inglewood series, although it is interesting to have seen the Lord Neil's character in the previous books this story is very much a stand alone. It is wonderfully well written. It captured my attention right from the start. Marian Hussey (as always) narrates the story in such a way as to breathe life into an already very lively tale. Reforming Lord Neil is a clean regency romance that was very enjoyable story of redemption and grace.

This is my favourite of the Inglewood series!

Oh wow! Can it be possible?! I think this might actually be my favourite book out of the Inglewood series yet! I had an inkling that I was going to enjoy Lord Neil’s character from the last book but Britton exceeded my expectations! I love how well done this book was. You DEFINITELY have to read the previous books in the series... ALL of them! Because Lord Neil first appears right at the beginning and each book he appears in is referred back to in this one. Honestly, it fills out the background for his character and how his reform starts well before this one, so you won’t regret it - plus they are fantastic stories! I loved them all. I know I go on a lot about character development with all of my reviews but seriously people, this is important! If the characters aren’t developed properly they appear as very 1-dimensional. Like the words just written on the page. But a well developed character, comes to life in any receptive imagination! They start to feel like friends and acquaintances. I love it when this happens. Britton does an excellent job of this. Plus - clean and wholesome with still all the joy and excitement and suspense a romance can bring. Perfectly balanced humour and wit throughout. Sigh. What’s not to love in a reformed bad-boy who is actually, secretly, very kind and caring along with a lady who is spirited and strong-willed despite having trials thrown at her constantly and villains trying to crush her at every opportunity? I can definitely recommend this book... Along with the entire series! Plus, I’m hoping that one day we’ll also get to read Cara’s story 😉😁 Narrated by the talented Marian Hussey - who brought the story off the page and was a true delight to listen to. I loved every minute of it!

Loved it!

I thoroughly despised Lord Neil in the other books so I wasn't sure about this one. But to my surprise I absolutely loved it!! I think it was my favorite out of all of them which is saying something because I've thoroughly enjoyed them all! Beautifully written and an accurate outcome of how the past can shape us but how we can also move forward
