Great Story, Great Series
Blaire Culpepper and Lieutenant Julian Drake have fallen in love. Devastated to learn that Julian is to marry his deceased brother’s pregnant betrothed (duty and honor as he sees it), Blaire heads to the Culpepper country estate. At about the same time, Julian is also traveling to the country with Daphne Trudeau (his new intended) and her mother. When the top-heavy coach they rode in is blown over by a storm, Blaire rescues them, and they all end up staying in an inn together. As if this is not uncomfortable enough, when Julian regains consciousness, he doesn’t know who he is, where he is, where he was going and why, or the three women making a fuss around him. At this point this story gets very interesting.
This story has quite a conundrum for our hero and heroine, but as they say, Truth will out. Blaire and Julian are great characters, and I love how they come to know each other again as he recovers his memory. The Trudeaus are an obnoxious pair of shrews with no redeemable characteristics. The kind of villains you really want to get what’s coming to them. The story is fast-moving and suspenseful. There are a few surprises, some happy, some sad. There is also a romance and humor. It is fantastic that when Blaire sends for help, the entire family shows up for her. A good story and a heartwarming epilogue make The Lieutenant and the Lady a must read.
Five girls, five stories, all tied together to make an awesome series.
I really enjoyed this book. The entire series is well worth reading. There is so much humor and sweet romance throughout the book. I highly recommend it
