The Fall of Lord Drayson by Rachael Anderson
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?
It has been a long time since I've stayed up reading way past anyone's bedtime, yet that's what I did reading this one. I didn't want to close my Kindle or put the book down--I was immersed in my own little world with the characters of The Fall of Lord Drayson. Rachael Anderson is one of my favorite authors, one I would read without knowing anything about the book just because she wrote it, but I enjoyed this one even more than most. Rachael Anderson's spin on Regency romance was fresh and intriguing, and I loved the interaction between the characters. It was a fun way to spend a few evenings, and I hope she writes more in this genre.
A USA Today bestselling author, Rachael Anderson is the mother of four and is pretty good at breaking up fights, or at least sending guilty parties to their rooms. She can't sing, doesn't dance, and despises tragedies. But she recently figured out how yeast works and can now make homemade bread, which she is really good at eating.
