The Fall of Lord Drayson by Rachael Anderson {Review}

The Fall of Lord Drayson 

The Fall of Lord Drayson by Rachael Anderson
Published: August 29, 2016
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?
My Review: 5 Stars
Sometimes I get a little nervous when a favorite author delves into a new genre, but my worries were completely unfounded with Rachael Anderson. She is completely brilliant! 
Lucy is charming, feisty, and absolutely adorable. She is a character that is easy to like and one whom I would love to be friends with in real life. Colin is pompous and cocky, but his experiences soften him a little and make him endearing. I just couldn't get enough of them and their relationship.
This story had me laughing, swooning, and eagerly devouring each and every single page. I absolutely adored this couple's interactions, especially as they got to know each other better. The more tangled their stories and lives became, the more I engaged I became. At the end of the book, the author mentions possibly turning this into a series and I'm crossing every finger and toe in hopes that she does in fact do just that. I can't say enough good about this book. This story was exactly what I needed--a lighthearted, clean, romantic comedy set in Regency times. Loved it!
Content: mild, swoony romance (clean).
