About the Book
Evan Eldridge never meant to be a war hero–he just wanted to fight Napoleon for the future of his country. And he certainly didn’t think that saving the life of a peer would mean being made the Earl of Whitelock. But when the life you save is dear to the Prince Regent, things can change in a hurry.
Now Evan has a new title, a manor house in shambles, and a stranger for a bride, all thrust upon him by a grateful ruler. What he doesn’t have are all his memories. Traumatized as a result of his wounds and bravery on the battlefield, Evan knows there’s something he can’t quite remember. It’s important, dangerous–and if he doesn’t recall it in time, will jeopardize not only his marriage but someone’s very life.
Readers who enjoy Julie Klassen, Carolyn Miller, and Kristi Ann Hunter will love diving into this brand-new Regency series filled with suspense, aristocratic struggles, and a firm foundation of faith.
In My Opinion
I thoroughly enjoyed my time with Evan and Diana in The Lost Lieutenant. Evan’s introduction to the ton is both informative and entertaining as his time as a soldier gives him a different view of nobility than most heroes in Regency romances.
In contrast, Diana has been raised to be the wife of a noble and is the perfect complement to Evan. It takes a meddling prince, a scheming father, and a crumbling manor for them to realize it, though.
Erica Vetsch adds a unique perspective to this time period while giving readers an engaging story with themes of loyalty, honesty, and faith woven throughout.
At first, I was somewhat suspicious of Marcus who comes alongside Evan to teach him the ins and outs of society, but he quickly grew on me. And I am looking forward to finding out what Vetsch has instore for him in the next book of the Serendipity and Secrets series.
