Overview

“A heartwarming and amusing romance.” – Library Journal Graham Spencer needs a wife.

But not just any girl will do. She must have the money to save his dilapidated estate and desperate tenants. So when he meets a charming American lady’s maid on the beach at Brighton, the last thing he ought to do is kiss her.

Katherine Wright is hunting a titled husband.

Or at least her mother is. But Katherine can’t get the memory of a most inappropriate kiss out of her mind. The handsome stranger who took her in his arms in Brighton was only a valet, but even if she is an heiress, she’d rather spend her life with him than some stiff British aristocrat.

Can true love survive two false identities, two scheming mamas, and two lavish house parties where all is revealed? It can …

    Wonderful

    I loved this book...I will definitely look for more by this author. I actually cried at certain parts of the story. The plot is excellent. A great story of forgiving blindly. Love it!!

    I very much enjoyed this book. It is the first book by Jane Goodger that I've read and it will not be the last. I loved Graham Lord Avonleigh and Miss Katherine Wright they truly had great chemistry and love for each other. A must read. I need to go back and read the first book about Melissa and John the Mad Lord's Daughter and I'm looking forward to reading Mr Norris' book at least I'm hoping there's a HEA for Mr Norris.

    I really enjoyed this book. Graham was not the typical peer. He actually cared more for his tenants, servants and even his small village than himself or his comfort. He was a refreshing change to all the peers that will marry for money but the money was for their pleasure and comfort. Katherine was a great American and she gave all title grabbing Americans an example to revive. She was lonely for her home and family but her MOM wanted a title son-in-law to rise herself up in the stuffy New York society circles. Katherine is a different soft of heroine. She is a caring and loving person who wants to marry for love only. Then her mom has an affair and all of Katherine's expectations are proven false to her. These two can't keep their hands and lips off each other. One kiss, touch and one broken engagement later, they must marry. I loved her dad. Only I man who punches his future son-in-law, is a DAD that I LOVE!! As I was reading the story I was a little disappointed but then it made me cry. I give this book 4 fingers up and 8 toes.

    A lot of money for 243 pages

    I like her characters and she writes within the Victorian era. Because it's a short story some scenes and plots felt underdeveloped. Overall a good story.

    This is not part of a series per se, but has characters from other novels in it.

    Katherine Wright, American heiress, is in England to find a titled husband to make her parents happy. She would much rather go back home and go to college. During her stay in Brighton Beach, she dresses as a maid and enjoys some alone time walking along the beach. She meets a man, the valet to Lord Graham Spencer, and is instantly intrigued.

    Lord Graham Spencer sees an intriguing woman walking along the beach. He is so drawn to her that he goes down to the beach to meet her. Saving her from dropping into the ocean, Graham strikes up a conversation with her. But Graham tells her is is actually his valet.

    Graham and Katherine, both letting the other think they are not who they appear to be, engage in a flirtation. Katherine sneaks out of hotel room to meet Graham in secret. They both know that the relationship would never work, but they can't stay away from each other.


    They have one last night together, but Katherine never show up. Graham goes to her hotel and demands to find out what happen to her and learns that her party has left early. He is devastated thinking that he will never see her again.

    Fortunately for them both, they end up at the same house party and soon learn that the other was not honest with who they were. Unfortunately, Graham is soon to be engaged to another American heiress to save his properties from ruin. Will Graham follow his heart or will his need to save his legacy prevail?

    When I read the synopsis for this novel, I was intrigued. I've often read historical romance novels when one of the characters is not honest about whom they are, but rarely do you see both leading characters take on a new persona. It was interesting to see two people fall in love, just being themselves without all the "perfect behavior" that was the norm for that time period.

    This is not the first book that I've read by this author, but I haven't read the book that has Graham's friends in it so I'll be checking it out soon. I do hope that Goodger continues to write about some of the secondary characters in this novel as I would like to see them get their HEA too!

    Thanks go out to NetGalley and eKensington for a copy of the book in exchange of an honest review.

    Sweet and enjoyable, When a Lord Needs a Lady was a lovely histo

    Sweet and enjoyable, When a Lord Needs a Lady was a lovely historical romance. I really enjoyed reading it.

    Katherine was a great heroine. She was strong, determined, and refused to compromise when it came to her happiness. But, she was also genuinely kind and forgiving, which I really liked about her. I thought she was a wonderful character.

    Graham, though, wasn't working for me. He was a total blockhead that refused to see what was right in front of him. It was as if he was determined to make things as difficult for himself as he possibly could. He had his moment where he was actually sweet, but then he ruined it by being rude. I didn't hate him, but I can't say that I liked him.

    The romance was good. Despite Graham's stubbornness, they were sweet together and there was plenty of steaminess going on there as well. Overall, I thought they were sweet together.

    The plot was okay. I wasn't totally hooked. The pace was a little slow because of somebody (i.e. Graham) was being dumb, but I was still kept interested the entire way through. Overall, I enjoyed the story and I thought the ending was sweet.

    When a Lord Needs a Lady was an enjoyable historical romance. I didn't love it, but I did like it. I don't know if I would outright recommend this book, but if you want a sweet romance, then this book is worth a shot.

    *I received a free copy from the publisher in exchange for an honest review
