Loving a Lost Lord by Mary Jo Putney is free today in the Amazon Kindle store; I believe this may have been free for a brief period about a year ago, so some of you may have it, but seeing as how a few million Kindles have been sold in the last six months there are probably more of you who do not have it, and if you like romance novels this one sounds like it is for you. Who knows how long this one will be free again, so if you are interested please click here to pick up your free copy.
Here is the book’s description from the Amazon website:
From Publishers Weekly
Starred Review. The enchanting first Lost Lords novel confirms bestseller Putney (The Marriage Spell) as a major force in historical romance. In early 19th-century northern England, Mariah Clarke inherits beautiful Hartley Manor. George Burke, Hartley’s former owner, claims that Mariah’s father won the estate by cheating at cards and attempts to regain it by courting Mariah, who recklessly claims she’s already married. When she rescues an amnesiac man from the sea, she sees her chance to make the lie true, naming him Adam and convincing him she’s his wife. Sensual romance heats up between the couple until Mariah reluctantly reveals the truth. When she learns of Adam’s real history, Mariah must make a terrible choice. Entrancing characters and a superb plot line catapult this tale into stand-alone status.
In the first of a dazzling series, Mary Jo Putney introduces the Lost Lords-maverick childhood friends with a flair for defying convention. Each is about to discover the woman who is his perfect match-but perfection doesn’t come easily, even for the noble Duke of Ashton. . .
Battered by the sea, Adam remembers nothing of his past, his ducal rank, nor of the shipwreck that almost claimed his life. However, he’s delighted to hear that the golden-haired vision tending his wounds is his wife. Mariah’s name and face may not be familiar, but her touch, her warmth, feel deliciously right. . .
When Mariah Clarke prayed for a way to deter a bullying suitor, she didn’t imagine she’d find the answer washed ashore on a desolate beach. Convincing Adam that he is her husband is surprisingly easy. Resisting the temptation to act his wife, in every way, will prove anything but. And now a passion begun in fantasy has become dangerously real-and completely irresistible. . .
“Intoxicating, romantic and utterly ravishing…”-Eloisa James
