More About the Author

A New York Times, Wall Street Journal, and USAToday bestselling author, Mary Jo Putney was born in Upstate New York with a reading addiction, a condition for which there is no known cure. Her entire romance writing career is an accidental byproduct of buying a computer for other purposes.

Her novels are known for psychological depth and intensity and include historical and contemporary romance, fantasy, and young adult fantasy. Winner of numerous writing awards, including two RITAs and two Romantic Times Career Achievement awards, she has five times had books listed among the Library Journal's top five romances of the year, and three times had books among the top ten romances of Booklist, the magazine of the American Library Association.

Her favorite reading is great stories, but in a pinch she'll settle for the backs of cereal boxes. She's delighted that e-publishing can now make available books that have been out of print.

Format: Mass Market Paperback
I love this author and have rarely been disappointed. This book was no exception. Mary Jo is a sensitive writer and this story of a woman who has been sexually traumatised by her late husband is riveting. She is in hiding from an assassination squad who blame her for his death. Although safe in a different part of the country, she has vowed never to put herself in the hands of another man. But circumstances force her to marry -- and to a man we would all love. He is sensitive, alert to her fears, desperate to make her love him but terrified he will overstep the mark and make her run. The story kept me absorbed, worried, fearful ... and of course at the end, happy. To experience the flowering of a person under the skilled hands of her husband is a joy. It is never over-written, never makes you cringe and the love scenes are sensuous rather than rapacious. I rate this book a keeper.

I struggled trying to decide whether or not to give this book five stars because I thoroughly enjoyed it. In the end, I opted for four because compared to some of my absolutely favorite books, this one isn't quite that good obviously.

But, it did hold my interest. Not having read Mary Jo Putney during the past year, I was refreshed to once again read one of her books. I also realized that several of her books are available on KU, so Whoo Hoo! I've downloaded a couple of others and I plan to feast on those later tonight and tomorrow.

In this second Lost Lords book, we have Alexander Randall, who has resigned his commission after having been called home by his uncle - the Earl of Daventry. Daventry's offspring have died and Randall is now the heir to the title. Randall basically has no real relationship with his uncle, having been orphaned at an early age resulting in Randall having to live with his uncle where he was brutalized by his older cousin, the earl's son, Branford.

To further complicate matters, Julia Bancroft, midwife/healer in a small village is continually on Randall's mind and even though he won't admit it to himself, he arranges to visit friends who live in the area where Julia lives, hoping to run across her. Good decision on his part because he's just in time to learn Julia's been kidnapped by evil men who were former friends of Branford, Julia's now deceased husband.

With Randall's background in the army, he's the perfect knight in shining armor to go after his lady. When he catches up with the kidnappers, he and Julia have some hard choices to make. Their love story is not without complications, not the least of which is the harm done to Julia's soul after suffering her own brutal history in her marriage to Branford.

10 of 12 people found the following review helpful By Helen Hancox on 2 Aug. 2010
Format: Mass Market Paperback
I haven't read any of the previous Lost Lords series but found this book easy to follow and very much enjoyed it. Our hero, Major Alexander Randall, sells out from the army in order to find a wife and settle down as he has unexpectedly become the heir to an Earldom. He just needs to find the right wife.

But Alexander has to come to the rescue of midwife Julia Bancroft, a woman he met the previous year and to whom he felt an unexpected attraction. There's a lot more to Julia than meets the eye, and he quickly decides they should marry.

But Julia's past marriage threatens their happiness, as do the people who seem to be trying to kill her. Can she and Randall find some sort of balance in their life?

The author had a good grasp of the historical setting but she did make a rather amusing mistake, saying that someone had a `slice of shepherd's pie' when shepherd's pie isn't something with pastry but is minced lamb with mashed potato on the top, not something one can slice but has to be served with a spoon. There were a few Americanisms that slipped in but overall the setting felt realistic and the characters true to their time.

What I liked about this book was that both Randall and Julia were very engaging characters, people who thought about others rather than being selfish aristocrats that one so often reads about. I was slightly irritated by a plot thread where Randall worried Julia didn't want to remain married to him, for which there was no apparent evidence in her behaviour following their marriage, but overall the story was well written and I will enjoy reading other books in this series.

Making my way through all the Lost Lords books this contains characters first met in Loving A Lost Lord and answers some of the questions about Julia that came up in that book . The story was not quite up to that of Adam and Mariah but definitely worth the read.
