Dukes don’t need help, or do they?
Michael Redmond, the Duke of Cortland, needs to be in London—most expeditiously—but a band of highway robbers have thwarted his plans. Purse-pinched, coachless, and mired in mud, he stumbles on Lilly Beauchamp, the woman who betrayed him years ago.
Ladies can’t be heroes, or can they?
Michael was her first love, her first lover, but he abandoned her when she needed him most. She’d trusted him, and then he failed to meet with her father as promised. A widowed stepmother now, Lilly loves her country and will do her part for the Good of England—even if that means aiding this hobbled and pathetic duke.
They lost their chance at love, or did they?
A betrothal, a scandal, and a kidnapping stand between them now. Can honor emerge from the ashes of their love?

Loved the book. After almost a decade apart Michael and Lilly meet again and the love they once shared comes flooding back to each of them. Unfortunately, Michael in to be married to Lady Natalie. As hard as they try they can not stay away from each other and events happen that gives them a HEA. The book has a roadside robbery, stolen kisses, a kidnapping and a death. The book is a great read, a wonderful story and I highly recommend it.
Be Still My Heart!
Heartsmile. If you love heart stopping romantic historical novels, this one is for you.. I did not want it to end because I adored this couple so much and this story will stay with me for awhile. Annabelle Anders is adept at grabbing your attention at the beginning and not letting go until the end. Her prose is so beautifully written and this story just touched me from the start. Michael Redmond, the Duke of Cortland is on his way to London when he is set upon by brigands who take his coach and all in it. Making his way to the nearest Inn, he runs into none other than his first love, Lilly Beauchamp. Their romance when they were young was so intense and she thought he had not come back for her. He thought she just married another. So they are thrown together again and the sparks are still there, in fact they never left. The story goes back and forth between their meetings when they were young and present day and is interwoven amazingly. Can there be a second chance for them after so much time had passed? Lilly was now a widow and Michael is engaged to be married with the union being more of deal between families for political reasons. As they find out that both had been under the wrong impression as to what happened all those years ago, they cannot deny their feelings. But what to do? There were so many wonderful thoughts and emotions, I wish I could pull them out for you to see. I cannot say enough about this romantic story. It will go on my keeper shelf and I will be looking for the second book in this series, hopefully soon!!! 10****
AWESOME BOOK BY ANNABELLE ANDERS
AWESOME!! Nobody’s Lady by Annabelle Anders is book 1 in Lord Love A Lady series. This is my first book of Annabelle’s that I have read and it will not be the last. Oh how I enjoyed this story of going back and forth through time when it just doesn’t seem like the right time for love. Nobody’s Lady held me captive from the first page to the last and the well drawn characters easily come to life and captures the era in which the story is set. I cannot wait for more of this series, although this book can be read as a standalone. The descriptions are so vivid and clear you can picture it all in your mind. Can you tell I loved this book? This story has a long lost love, misunderstandings, death, abuse, a wicked step daughter, cruelty, an illegal marriage, politics, trust, rescue, broken promises, determination, evil, highway robbers, madness, kidnapping, theft and so much more. I cannot say enough about this book and I highly recommend it, you won't be disappointed.
