‘When a Lord Needs a Lady’ by Jane Goodger

walnal jgSTORY: Lord Graham Spencer needs a wife.

But not just any girl will do. She must have the money to save his dilapidated estate and desperate tenants. So when he meets a charming American lady’s maid on the beach at Brighton, the last thing he ought to do is kiss her.

Katherine Wright is hunting a titled husband.

Or at least her mother is. But Katherine can’t get the memory of a most inappropriate kiss out of her mind. The handsome stranger who took her in his arms in Brighton was only a valet, but even if she is an heiress, she’d rather spend her life with him than some stiff British aristocrat.

Can true love survive two false identities, two scheming mamas, and two lavish house parties where all is revealed? It can…

REVIEW: I say better late than never. Meaning, I just realized that I read this book last year and never reviewed it. Shame on me!

Anyways, after I read ‘The Spinster Bride’ [the next in this series to be published tomorrow, and which will be reviewed by both Connie and I], I was eager to link to my review and low and behold, I couldn’t find it. So, here we are. I offer my apologies to the publishing house and to the author for doing this one almost a year later. Now onward to my thoughts about this great story.

The blurb is well versed and you can get the gist of this story, but what you can’t get from it is the awesome way in which Jane Goodger develops her characters and a myriad of different situations she places them in. Watching them extract themselves from these situations was a thrill!

Another thing you’ll notice as you read this story, is the way the author ‘colors’ her characters, rather than using only ‘black or white’ pallet. Her characters have many shades of many colors which makes them more interesting and entertaining, and makes them more human as they go through their emotional growth.

For an author to write a story which engages many emotions on a part of a reader, means that she/he had done an outstanding job, and I say this is exactly what Jane Goodger has done to me with this story.

  1. This book sounds terrific, Mel, and your review has hooked me like a big fish! I enjoyed “The Spinster Bride” which publishes Feb. 3 and now I must read this one!
