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?
I loved The Fall of Lord Drayson. The story line is so cute!
I fell in love with the characters and I sooo wanted to see them together as the time went on. Lucy was the daughter of a vicar and after a lie she told as a child she vowed never to lie again. It gave her high standards.
I didn’t like Lord Drayson at first. He was kind of rude. But when Lord Drayson fell and hit his head and couldn’t remember anything, Lucy couldn’t help herself. She had to lie to him. He was going to sell the property which she lived on with her widowed mother. He was evicting her. So she told him he was her servant. She gave him her father’s old clothes. He was always kind to her and taught her a lot about horses and helped her learn to ride and drive a carriage. She was very fearful of horses and he taught her to not be afraid of them. Every day she felt more guilt. The day she decided she needed to free herself of the bad choice she had made and tell him who he really was, was the day everything changed.
I loved the way Lord Drayson treated Lucy (post head injury). I love how Lucy treated everyone the same no matter their class. I loved how sweet Mr. Sheppard was to Lucy. I loved Lord Drayson’s family. I loved the whole stinkin’ book. If they had air conditioning then, I would love to have lived with them!
If you like to read about stepfamily, lying, righting a wrong, making decisions together, horses, regency romance, gardening, floral arrangements, picking locks, and finding love in unexpected ways then this might be for you!
There is a reason a man and a woman complement each other. A woman thinks with her heart and a man with his head. When the two come together to work through difficulties, more perspectives can be evaluated and a better solution can be found.
