Review and Giveaway: The Lost Lieutenant by Erica Vetsch


Evan Eldridge never meant to be a war hero--he just wanted to fight Napoleon for the future of his country. And he certainly didn't think that saving the life of a peer would mean being made the Earl of Whitelock. But when the life you save is dear to the Prince Regent, things can change in a hurry.

Now Evan has a new title, a manor house in shambles, and a stranger for a bride, all thrust upon him by a grateful ruler. What he doesn't have are all his memories. Traumatized as a result of his wounds and bravery on the battlefield, Evan knows there's something he can't quite remember. It's important, dangerous--and if he doesn't recall it in time, will jeopardize not only his marriage but someone's very life.

Readers who enjoy Julie Klassen, Carolyn Miller, and Kristi Ann Hunter will love diving into this brand-new Regency series filled with suspense, aristocratic struggles, and a firm foundation of faith.

He's doing what he can to save the Prince Regent's life . . . but can he save his new marriage as well?

My Thoughts:

Ever since hearing about this new book and series, I have been in excitable anticipation to read it. I was not disappointed. This marriage of convenience between two unlikely souls had me up late into the night.

The characters are not the cookie cutter regency kind. Evan Eldridge is a wounded war hero who is struggling mightily with missing memories and nightmares. He is thrust into the role of Earl as the way the Prince Regent rewards him. Though Evan, a common man, would like to just get back to the battle and his men.

Diana Seaton has been raised among the ton and trained to take her place among them her entire life. Her family home life has not been a happy one being abused by her family and to be used as a pawn for their greater gain. Living a fearful, subdued life she has only one concern and she will do her best to protect that secret.

Evan and Diana are thrust into a marriage at the Prince's request. And what looks like a shamble of a mess- the marriage, the estate,- actually gives way to a beautiful story of two people who would have never chosen this fate and they grow together in true love and affection. I really enjoyed watching their growth as characters along with the sanctity of their marriage.

So there you have it, a novel of regency England with mystery, danger, and love to keep you reading through the night.

I received a copy of this novel from the publisher. I was not required to post a positive review and all views and opinions are my own.
