Editor reviews

In the modern Regency romance Lady John, performed as a refined British lady would by Charlotte Cole, we follow the story of a recently widowed woman, Olivia Martingale, who goes to live with the wealthy family of her now deceased husband.
In this strange and invigorating new setting, the spunky and bubbly Olivia meets Lord Menwin, a handsome man who is most dreadfully rude to her. But perhaps Lord Menwin will turn out to be like the insecure schoolyard boy who picks on the girl because he fancies her.
A period piece full of love, longing, misunderstandings, and manners that’s a very easy listen, aka, Jane Austen light.

The last time Olivia Martingale saw Menwin it was in Brussels on the eve of Waterloo. She had loved him then, but her love was not returned. Instead she yielded to the insistent Lord John Temperer, married him, and was left a widow.
With the war at last over, visiting John’s family seemed like a good idea. But John’s brother the Duke disliked her; John’s mother wanted to match-make for her… and into the middle of all this walked Menwin, filling the room with his presence. Olivia felt the old attraction rising again - until Menwin looked right through her as if she was not even worth noticing.

What did you like best about this story?

The story is well written and very interesting. It's not just a fluffy piece that solely focusses on how people felt when the were near each other or gazing at each other across the room. It is an enjoyable submersion into the 1800s life.
