Book Review-Lydia

I just finished reading Lydia by Wanda Luce. Let me tell you first what the book is about:
Lydia comes from a wealthy family, well, they were until her father dies and leaves the family in dire financial straights. To help with the family income Lydia takes a job as a governess. The family she works for adores her and in the Ashcroft Family, Lydia finds comfort and is quite content to live out her days as a companion and governess. That is until she meets Charles Ashcroft's best friend Lord Denton. Lydia is dazzled immediately with the handsome and most eligible bachelor. She keeps telling herself not to fall for him, but heart does not listen. With each encounter, Lydia falls deeper and deeper in love with him. Her head tells her there is no way a man in his position will ever fall for a lowly governess.

Now let me tell you what I think. This sweet romance, written in the style of Jane Austen's great novels is one with rich language and the beauty of falling in love. Who doesn't love the dashing rogue? And the heroine caught in embarrassing situation. There is lots of tension between the characters. If you love romances, then this is the book for you.
