The Fall of Lord Drayson

Book: The Fall of Lord Drayson
Series: Tanglewood #1
Author: Rachael Anderson

When Colin Cavendish, the new earl of Drayson, informs Lucy Beresford that she and her mother need to vacate the house they've called home for the past two years, Lucy is fit to be tied. They have no money, no relations they can turn to for help, and nowhere to go. How dare the earl break the promise his father had made to the Beresfords without so much as a twinge of conscience?

Fate plays her hand when Lucy discovers the earl unconscious and injured in the middle of the road. When he awakens with no recollection of who he is, Lucy seizes the opportunity to teach the earl a much-needed lesson in humility and tells him that he is nothing more than a mere servant. Her servant, in fact.

And thus begins the charming tale of a pompous lord and an impetuous young woman, caught together in a web so tangled that it begs the question: Will they ever get out? -Goodreads

Review: Colin Cavendish, the new earl of Drayson, decides to sell one of his families homes in Tanglewood that is not used and financially draining. When he discovers his father was allowing a widower and her daughter to live on property, he travels there to tell them they have a few months to find new accommodations. Lucy's mother is out of town and she receives the message. As the earl is leaving the house, he has an accident and loses his memory. Lucy, still furious about his desire to sell the property, tells him he is her servant. 

This was a very cute romance. The beginning chapters featured sections written from both Lucy and Colin. Oddly, the story shifted completely to Lucy's perspective for the remainder of the book. I would have loved to have both. 

Grade: 3/5
