Overview



A young noblewoman, fleeing from the darkness of her past, falls into life as a housemaid at a country manor—and into the arms of the lord who owns it
 
Born a lady, but now orphaned and left to the care of distant relations, Lily Trehearne’s fortunes are low indeed. All she inherited from her spendthrift father is a tangled web of debt, and her ultra-pious guardian, the Reverend Roger Soames, seems determined to marry her off to his son Lewis.
 
Determined to save herself from that dreary fate, Lily panics and flees to Cornwall. Under the pseudonym Lily Troublefield, she accepts the first position she is offered, as a housemaid at the ominously named Darkstone Manor, property of Devon Darkwell. Lily’s new master is eccentric, deeply troubled . . . and strangely irresistible.

    One of a Kind

    Lily is one of a small class of books that I thought absolutely outrageous when I read them, yet which lingered in my memory so compellingly, they actually became prime favorites. It’s a very over the top, old skool, bodice rippery type of romance (though not the kind in which the heroine is raped or has sex with other men, which tends to be where I personally draw the line, bodice ripper-wise.) It’s the sort of romance that either has you wanting to stomp on the hero’s face or clutching your stomach in vicarious agony over how cruel he is, or perhaps both. Which of course provides a wonderful catharsis when he gets his and, eventually they both get each other. Whether you love or hate it -- or perhaps both -- you probably won’t forget it.

    Lily Trehearne is on the run from a pompous arrogant fool who believes he can force Lily to marry his son. Using his close relation and subsequent guardianship over Lily her father’s cousin, a pastor, informs Lily that it’s God’s intention that she marry his lily-livered son. Lily runs – with the authorities hot on her tail.
    Though born a lady, Lily hides as a maid in the home of Devon Darkwell, Lord of Darkwell manor. She can’t hide her true nature for long and is soon loved by all but the threatened housekeeper.

    All Lily wants is love but his lordship refuses only that – will love conquer all? Or will the housekeeper have her way?

    Hott Review
    This was a bit different. It took a while for me to grow interested in the book because the writing style isn’t what I normally read. It’s definitely a steamy romance but it’s more on the line of women’s fiction or drama than the comedic romances I generally seek.
