She can't make a baby without a husband! Or can she?

After witnessing the miracle of birth, self-determined spinster Miss Penelope Crone is having second thoughts about swearing off marriage. She wants – no, she needs – to experience the blessed event herself. Dear God, she's practically thirty! Time is running out!

Hugh Chesterton, Viscount Danbury, is relatively intelligent, good looking, unmarried, and most importantly, close at hand. With a little décolletage, a sway of the hips, and a few drinks of brandy, Penelope is certain she can extract a respectable offer.

If only she'd accounted for the power of passion.

Because unchecked lust takes over, leaving Penelope in a most precarious predicament. And Lord Danbury –– the goose-brained jackanapes –– is proving far less attainable than she'd imagined.

Is Penelope to be cast out of society or will Lord Danbury take a leap of faith and save her from ruin? He'd better act fast if he's going to make her his lady. HIs Lady At Last...

About the Author

Married to the same man for over 25 years, I am a mother to three children and two Miniature Wiener dogs.
After owning a business and experiencing considerable success, my husband and I got caught in the financial crisis and lost everything; our business, our home, even our car.

At this point, I put my B.A. in Poly Sci to use and took work as a waitress and bartender.

Unwilling to give up on a professional life, I simultaneously went back to college and obtained a degree in Energy Management.

And then the energy market dropped off.

And then my dog died.

I can only be grateful for this series of unfortunate events, for, with nothing to lose and completely demoralized, I sat down and began to write the romance novels which had until then, existed only my imagination.

I am happy to have found my place in life.

This story was so relateable for me. I identified with the characters. Though it was from another time, I fell into the scenes as if I were one myself. Who does love a strong women going after what she wants. Boy does she want. The author is good at kepting her story clean but getting you into the moment. Highly recomend!

Even though this book is #4 in the series it can be read as a stand alone book. I loved this book & that the theme is so different from most historical romance novels. I really liked Penelope especially since she had made the choice to be a spinster. But when she witnesses childbirth she changed her mind about children & decided she wanted a baby. It was fun reading about how she was trying to get Hugh's attention, since he was close by. This was another winner by a fabulous author.

Every story I read by this author has totally charmed me with her wonderful plots, unforgettable and believable characters, charming dialogues and emotions that always warm my heart! Did I say Amazing? Yes that is Annabelle Anders. Each book becomes my favorite until the next comes out. "A miracle. It had taken a miracle to change Penelope Cross's mind about spinsterhood, but her mind had changed, nonetheless." This after Pen had witnessed the birth of her wonderful friend's baby. Now she wants a baby and goes about trying to make that happen! To say she is determined and works fast does not even describe it! Her sights set on Hugh, Viscount Danbury, who she had known for years and was handsome, intelligent and at her house! With a seductive dress showing off her assets, a little flirtation and a lot of alcohol, she basically took advantage of him! But the problem is he passes ot and does not remember their encounter! Plus he leaves the next morning before she can speak to him. Talk about an unexpected adventure! As Pen takes off to find Hugh and I turned the pages, I could not help but laugh, and yes out loud, become almost tearful at times and want to shake them to realize they were perfect for each other!! Did I say I adored this book? I know I will be thinking about Hugh and Penelope for awhile and anxioiusly awaiting to read more by one of my favorite authors of Historical Romance!! Lori Dykes

This is the first book that I have read of the series. It is actually the fourth book in the series, but I didn’t feel like I missed anything by not reading the previous books first. Although I am now adding them to my TBR list! I loved Pen and Hugh’s story! The book was well written, easy to read (hard to put down), and full of emotions. It had a great plot and story line. I can’t wait to read the first book in the series and will definitely have to reread this one as I go through the series. This is a must read series!

To say I love the book would be an understatement. I adored it and it's characters. The intelligent 'Pen' and her love interest Hugh, are complete opposites as characters as can be, with Pen being the practical, business minded, and far from wanting to be tied-down spinster, and Hugh being the worldly playboy. But, they are united by one thing, their burgeoning passion for one another, and maybe a few other things, but I won't spoil it for you. Just take a chance on this book, I am sure you will fall for it as deeply as I did.

Annabelle always surprises me by taking a rarely seen topic in HR and turning it into an amazing story! I had an idea of what was going to happen, but as soon as Penelope said “we should celebrate” I was shocked at how wrong I was. But it was a good shock. Then the surprises just kept coming with them and every time I thought he was going to find out I wanted to scream because they were interrupted. My heart ached when he finally found out and then sunk with his reaction. These two clearly are meant to be together and both are stubborn and full of passion. I was jumping up and down when he finally remembered and then my heart sunk when he arrived home to what he did. Everything in that scene had my heart racing, holding my breath, and tears in my eyes all for good and bad reasons. Major book hangover after the amazing ending. Penelope is a determined woman that always gets what she wants when she sets her mind to it. I loved how she could walk in and fix things like it was nothing. She just couldn’t fix this as easily and her emotions leap off the pages at every turn. If only she could get him to listen and give details Hugh knew something changed when he saw that baby. his emotions when came to her were so clear. I wanted to shake him to make him remember everything. When he ordered the doctor out I could feel the pain in his voice. What he did next shocked me and melted my heart to his stubbornness and the way he acted. There is a picnic scene that has something I have never seen in HR, but it was very well done and takes it to a 3 1/2 kisses on the spice level. But it was very well done. The birth scene is a bit traumatic so it may be triggering to some, but it is very well done. Copy provided for an honest and voluntary review.

Annabelle Anders fourth book in the Lord Love A Lady series, Lady At Last, will be available April 30th. The author assures us that there are more characters for this series that need a happily ever after. I'll be waiting. Miss Penelope Cross, spinster by choice, has just witnessed a miracle. Her friend has given birth and now all Pen can think about is having a baby of her own. She's scared off ton gentlemen for the past ten years, who's left to marry? She picks Hugh Chesterton, Viscount Danbury. Hugh is a friend but a confirmed bachelor so he's gonna be tricky to convince and drag to the alter. There's an "incident" in a Dukes study that Hugh can't quite remember and Pen can't forget. Pen must chase, all over England, after Hugh to prevent a social disaster. Each wants a love marriage but will that be possible now? I voluntarily read and reviewed an advanced copy of this book. All thoughts and opinions are my own. Thank you to the author for this opportunity. #AnnabelleAnders #LordLoveALady #LadyAtLast #HistoricalRomance

Lady at Last -Lord Love a Lady book 4 by Annabelle Anders WOW! Every time I read an Annabelle Anders book I always feel this one tops the previous one! This was absolutely AMAZING!! Self proclaimed spinster Penelope Crone wants what every woman has the right to experience......motherhood! Now she only needs an accomplice to help with the deed. Who better than Hugh Chesterton, she knows him and his quirks, he’s honourable and passably good looking, what she didn’t expect was how her seduction to unfold. Hugh Chesterton is not the marrying kind he’s a confirmed bachelor, until Penelope Cross starts a game of seduction with him. He has a vague recollection of kissing Pen his body shows all the signs that more than just kissing happened. His mind is foggy and he’s not quite certain if she’s been compromised by him. What ensues is Pen chasing the man she’s fallen head over heels all over England to convince him that they were meant to be together! I loved Pen and Hugh, enjoyed their witty dialogue and journey in falling in love. Annabelle Anders seriously has a gift for writing amazing characters and intricate plots that just pull the reader in for an enjoyable read. I highly recommend her books, you won’t be disappointed. I recieved a complimentary copy from the author. This is my honest unbiased opinion.
