"When a Lord Needs a Lady" by Jane Goodger (aka Jane Blackwood)

Author's Book Description : 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 ...

When A Lord Needs A Lady

My Book Review : 3.5 out of 5 stars! A woman who is on a trip she doesn't want to be on meets the one man who could win her heart, if only they can overcome their past obligations everything should be fine...

Katherine & Graham are quite the pair! I especially loved how they fell in love with each other while they both were pretending to be poor and how once they learn the truth it made them even more enamored with each other too. The secondary characters were another fun bunch to read about too, Katherine's maid & Graham's friend Mr. Norris were two of my favorites!

My only wish was that, even though I loved the build up to this novel and loved wrap up at the end, the "big issue" that happens to them and changes their lives for good had turned out a bit differently. I mean, like I said, I enjoyed the ending and how everything turned out and yet I really wished that Graham didn't feel like he had to second-guess himself about Katherine's intentions because of what happens. I mostly wish that because I don't like how it made me second guess Graham as a good hero in this novel even when I understood why he was behaving the way he did. =0/

Overall, though, I do recommend this novel to anyone who likes historical romances!

Book Teaser(s) :
"I imagine there will be an announcement soon, sir?"
Was Chase purposely trying to grate on his nerves? Or was he genuinely excited about the news of his engagement?
"I imagine so," Graham said, as if the pending announcement was his own date for the gallows. He wished at that moment he'd never gone to Brighton Beach, that he'd never known what it was like to finally feel something other than mild interest in a woman. She was angry with him and he supposed she had a right to be. He acted like a besotted idiot when he was around her, fully aware that nothing could ever come of it. Good God, it was a wonder she hadn't slapped him. He deserved it.
"I ought to be horsewhipped," he said, sitting down upon his bed.
"I do think that's a bit harsh, sir. Perhaps a caning would do."
Graham let out a chuckle. "You always were soft, Everett." ~ within Chapter 9
