Lost with A Lord by Emily E. K. Murdoch #Review
Posted by brriske
A man in search of a courtesan, and a woman in search of a ship – and neither will find what they thought they wanted…
Lord George Northmere is tired of his lonely existence, and takes the radical decision to go against the ton and society’s rules, and seek out comfort.
But in all his thirty years, he has never met anyone quite like the fiery Italian Miss Florence Capria.
After a riot forces them to take shelter for the night in an intimate small room, can Lord George ignore the growing passion Miss Capria is igniting in his once cold heart? Will being lost with a lord change Florence’s destiny forever?
This is the first in a series of eight Ravishing Regencies.
Excellent short read. Starts off a bit strange but that just serves to entice you into wondering about the second novel! Characters are well written, and you feel like you know them by the end of the story even though it’s so short. The interactions between the two before and after their interlude is realistic and believable, even for people who don’t believe in love at first sight. Which I suppose it wasn’t actually first sight, more like first night!
As an independent reviewer for Romance Authors that Rock, I give this book a full four hearts. As a short novel, it falls off the last heart since there simply wasn’t enough time to get fully enough attached to the characters to be emotionally involved. Otherwise, I thoroughly enjoyed it and recommend it highly!
