CHERYL HOLT continues to dazzle readers with the second book in her new trilogy, The Lost Lords of Radcliffe...
MATTHEW HARLOW is England's hero. After almost single-handedly rescuing passengers from a foundering ship-including a trio of royal cousins-he's being lauded throughout the kingdom. But at heart, he's just a soldier, a captain in the King's army, and he finds the spotlight a great nuisance. Yet he's dashing and dynamic, a natural leader of men, and heroics rest well on his broad shoulders. As an orphan, with no memory of his parents or past, he often wonders where he came by his penchant for fearlessness and daring. What is to account for his extraordinary courage and valor?
CLARISSA MERRICK is a poor relative and spinster who lives with her cruel cousins at their bucolic Greystone estate. Even in her small corner of rural England, everyone has heard of brave, remarkable Captain Harlow. When he arrives at Greystone, he shoots through her world like a blazing comet, and nothing will ever be the same. Who is Matthew Harlow? What is his true history? How could a lowly orphan be possessed of such a forceful character and potent charisma? Can Clarissa help him find answers to the mystery that has plagued him all his life?
Cheryl Holt delivers another dramatic story of love, family, heartbreak, and betrayal. As the truth about the "lost" lords is gradually revealed, readers will be breathlessly turning the pages and cheering all the way to the stunning, thrilling conclusion...

TSTL heroine meets Obnoxious hero....................................................... The Heroine who is 25 yrs old with no prospects no money and who has been living off of the charity of relatives who don't even like her a little bit turns down the hero's marriage proposal because she doesn't want to marry without true love. If she doesn't marry him she will be going to the poor house because the relative themselves are being put out and can't support her any more. Hmmm. Poor house or wealthy man with castle and servants ? I can see where that would be a difficult choice. Not! The hero is wealthy, masculine, rich and famous. He is also a jerk and maybe a little psycho. Well nobody is perfect. He isn't violent towards woman though and is planning on returning to the army so he still seems the better alternative to the poor house. IMO There is also a secondary romance between his younger soldier brother who is a vain horndog and another girl who was also taken in by the h's family. She is determined to marry him so keeps crawling into his bed figuring that he will have to marry her if she gets compromised. No matter that he tells her he 'WON'T EVER MARRY HER' she still chases him. She has some money by the way so apparently she is just chasing him for sport. Dumb story unlikable cast. I won't be looking for the next in the series.
Looking forward to reading more stories by cheryl holt.
