Overview

Beautiful Melissa Rivenwood was leaving Mrs. Brody's Seminary for the Daughters of Gentlemen for a new life. But when she accepted the position as companion to the formidable Lady Dorothy, spirited Melissa could not have known that she would soon be caught up in a web of passion and intrigue at beautiful and remote Vinton Manor.

Giles Tarsin, her haughty employer, is maddeningly aloof—and irresistibly attractive. Darkly handsome Sir Adrian Hawkhurst admires her undisguisedly with, Melissa suspects, the most impure intentions. Harold Bosworth, a family connection, appears> to be ever the gentleman.

But why is seven-year-old Robbie, an orphan like Melissa, so terrified?

Before long, Melissa is struggling to unravel dark family secrets that will lead her suspicions to center on just one man . . . the one man she loves!

Editorial Reviews

GoodReads - S. Melo
HER LADYSHIP'S COMPANION is considered a prequel to Bourne's Spymaster series because of the appearance of Adrian Hawkhurst. It is not necessary to read this book, however, to enjoy the remainder of the series. This book, however, is a sweet treat. I find it amazing that this book was written in 1983. As is true with Bourne's textbooks, the language is fresh, the characters interesting and multidimensional, and the plot well constructed and engaging.
GoodReads - . Beebs
I really enjoyed this, it's much lighter in tone than the Spymaster books, although Hawker does make an appearance. It's more of a traditional regency but then it was first published in 1983.
Amazon - JRD Jess
This must have been an earlier work of Bourne's, that or an idea that never gelled out or filled in completely. Story was a bit shakey, characters vague and several questions went unanswered by the end. Usually a great fan of Bourne's, so for those of you new to her writing -please read something else of hers first or at least don't let your opinion of her writing be based on this book alone.
Amazon - Kiki G
In a phrase: loved it! This is the first "romance" novel I've ever read. Suffice it to say I had less-than-high expectations. Boy was I wrong. The book moved along nicely, and Bourne knows how to tell a story! If you're a "period piece" fan, and you're looking for a story to curl up with, give "Her Ladyship's Companion" a shot.
Amazon - Amazon Customer
An atypical regency romance, in that the heroine is able to think for herself and is determined to forge her own destiny.
I also enjoyed reading this early effort by Joanne Bourne because it showed brief glimpses of the great writing to come in her Spymaster series.

    Joanna Bourne's long out-of-print early book

    i am not a very good book reviewer, but I was very glad to be able to read this early book. Bourne has recently writtten 4 very good books about Regency spies and I have become a fan. Her early romance introduced one of her main characters and was very hard to find (and very expensive if you did). Her Ladyship's Companion is not a "spy" novel, but there IS a mystery. The characters are intresting and I was very glad to have the opportunity to read it. Thanks to Belgrave House for the e publication.
