Review: The Fall of Lord Drayson by Rachael Anderson

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Who is he really? A high and mighty lord or a lowly servant?

When Colin Cavendish, the new earl of Drayson, informs Lucy Beresford that she and her mother need to vacate the house they've called home for the past two years, Lucy is fit to be tied. They have no money, no relations they can turn to for help, and nowhere to go. How dare the earl break the promise his father had made to the Beresfords without so much as a twinge of conscience?

Fate plays her hand when Lucy discovers the earl unconscious and injured in the middle of the road. When he awakens with no recollection of who he is, Lucy seizes the opportunity to teach the earl a much-needed lesson in humility and tells him that he is nothing more than a mere servant. Her servant, in fact. 

And thus begins the charming tale of a pompous lord and an impetuous young woman, caught together in a web so tangled that it begs the question: Will they ever get out?

Ok, so once you start this book you won't be able to put it down! I LOVED this story! Not only was it swoon worthy romantic, it was funny and wonderfully snappy. :D As a vicar's daughter and a genuinely kind and good but strong-willed girl, the moment Lucy lost her temper with the wounded pompous Earl and led him to believe he was her servant was funny. And the fact that, although he doesn't know who he is, the Earl doesn't quite feel like he's in the right role as a servant leads to some funny dialogue and actions. So will the Earl, in the role of a servant, learn to love this delightful, spunky, warm and caring Vicar's daughter? Or will the truth cause him to revert back to the pompous Earl and walk away?

I really enjoyed the snappy dialogue, the chemistry, and the swoon worthy kisses between these two! They were a lot of fun to read about and the supporting characters were awesome too. A well rounded cast of characters lent a fullness and warmth to the story. I can't wait to read the next book!

A USA Today bestselling author of clean romance, Rachael Anderson is the mother of four and is pretty good at breaking up fights, or at least sending guilty parties to their rooms. She can't sing, doesn't dance, and despises tragedies. But she recently figured out how yeast works and can now make homemade bread, which she is really good at eating.
