Publisher's Summary

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 into her hands 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 asks the question: Will they ever get out?

A fantastic book!!!

This book was a charming and hilarious story! It was refreshing and pleasantly different than most romance novels I've read. I loved every moment!

Delightful!

Loved the book. First book be this author and I appreciate how she relays love and passion without passionate scenes written in and yet one still feels the tension and longing intensely. Great performance.
Only issue I had was the long pauses in between the chapters. I initially thought I had issues with my download.
Well worth the credit.

Clean and adventurous

This story of Collins and Lucy is fun and adventurous. It is a story that exemplifies what many of us feel times of challenge. Lucy is a truly lovable character.

A fun read, if a little naive

A fun, enjoyable story. there were a few places where people seemed to overlook obvious things andade silly decisions or where the dialogue dragged on recovering a point. Perhaps it could have been streamlined a bit more, or maybe the author likes it pretty much as it is. Either way, an enjoyable clean romance.

delay between chapters

The delay between chapters is a little frustrating, but other than that, I very much enjoyed this book.

Great story.

This is a really wonderful Recency romance, with all the elements that entails, and none of the trite devices that plague some stories (overturned carriages, kidnappings, highwaymen).

The only flaw in the audio version is the hissing S's throughout. The narrator has a pleasant voice, nice accent, good timing and expression; however, S is one of the most used letters and every S hissed. It became quite distracting at times, and occasionally, downright annoying. I almost quit listening because of it.

I've spent time in England and this is not a speech characteristic of anyone I know there. It is truly the only flaw in an otherwise exemplary performance.

Also, there are lengthy pauses between chapters -- so lengthy, that at first, I thought something was wrong with my electronics. I've listened to literally hundreds of audio books and never before encountered gaps like that. A slight pause, yes, but not like these. That is a production flaw, and whoever edited the recording could correct it quite easily.

I will read more from this author, but don't plan on listening to any more audio recordings if they are narrated by this reader.
She needs to work on those S's, then she will be great at this.
