Miss Lucy Beresford, the late-vicar's daughter, had been instructed by her loving parents to always tell the truth.
The Fall of Lord Drayson by Rachael Anderson
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?
Lovely and amusing (clean) romance set in the countryside. Daily living and dealings of the time period set the tone.
Fun and funny moments between the heroine and her love interest play out throughout the first half of the story. Light banter and stolen kisses make things lively.
The second half is a gradual growing romance with road blocks along the way mostly in regards to class and culture of the times.
Loved how both characters develop and grow individually as they gravitate towards each other.
