Publisher's Summary

When a lost lady discovers that love is found far from home....
After confessing her love for Lord Cunningham, Lady Rose Darby is whisked away by her father in the dead of night and locked in an old asylum. With no one but her paid companion, Miss Flint, for company, six months pass before Rose manages to escape.
But her plans to return to London go awry when she finds herself at Everleigh, a sprawling mansion nestled in the heart of the forest. Mistaken for a newly appointed maid, Rose is sent to meet her new master, the sinfully handsome and brooding Lord Farleigh. But how can she tell him who she really is without ruining her reputation? And why does the thought of working for a living suddenly have appeal?
Christian Knight, seventh Viscount Farleigh, leads a reclusive life in his country estate. Widowed at 30 and left to care for his two young children, love and marriage are not on his agenda. What respectable woman would want to move into a house in such a state of turmoil? The staff are sick, and he can’t keep a governess for more than a week. Is that why the new maid, Rose, proves too much of a distraction? As an honourable man, he knows he must fight the attraction. Yet, crippled with loneliness, his conscience is soon at war with his feeble heart.
Contains some descriptive sex scenes. Approx. 70,000 words.

Lovely Romance with a Suspenseful Mystery

This is the second book in the Lost Ladies of London series, and it's all about Rose's adventures after she leaves Morton Manor. If you haven't read book 1, go read it first! This review will have spoilers for the first book, which was a really good read.

After being locked away in Morton Manor for the last six months, Rose finally escapes the old asylum. Desperate to return to London and avoid her father, Rose makes her way to the local inn in the middle of the night. Seeing her father's coach outside, she tries to return to the manor house to warn Nicole. But Rose loses her way in the woods and finds herself outside Everleigh Manor instead.

Mistaken for a newly hired maid, Rose goes along with the deception. When Rose meets the owner of the manor, Viscount Farleigh, she's driven to help the burdened widower and his two young children, even if she loses her heart in the process.

This was another lovely romance with a suspenseful mystery that had me hooked until the end! It's a steamy read, it could be read as a standalone but I enjoyed the first one and recommend it as well. I loved both Rose and Christian. Each of Adele Clee's heroines are distinct and have their own personalities. Rose was so sweet and kind, in contrast to Nicole's spunk and spirit. Christian was a mature man with a weight on his shoulders, experiencing love for the first time. The mystery kept me listening and guessing until the end.

The narration was great, the narrator performed separate voices for each character and read dramatically. She made it a really easy listen. I requested a copy of the audiobook, and I'm voluntarily leaving a review.

Romance and mystery

This was an entertaining story concerning Lady Rose Darby and what happened to her when she escaped from the asylum. She finds her way into a nearby Manor House and pretends to be a maid. The house belongs to Christian Knight, Viscount Farleigh, a widower with two children. Rose quickly becomes involved in the life of the house and there is a definite attraction between Rose and Christian. There is also a mystery concerning the death of his first wife and a strange illness that affects the staff. The action takes place in the country but also in London. In London, we meet Christian’s friend Vane and his sister, Lillian. There is also a mystery involving Lillian. The narrator was easy to listen to and used different voices for the characters, bringing the action to life. I thoroughly enjoyed this book and I look forward to the next in the series. I was given copy and I have voluntarily and honestly reviewed it.
