The Abbey Brothers
STORY-LINE LADY LANDS THE LORD BY ELEANOR MEYERS:
In Lady Lands the Lord, Margaret Kay lay deathly ill at school. Uncle Martin Dawnton, Duke of Wardington, promises if she will live, she may live whatever life she wants. All the Kay girls are different from the normal society chits. Margaret, the Dukes favorite of the girls and too much like the Duke and sons, does not fit the restrictive mold of society; after all, she was ruined when found with the footman in her bedroom. Recovering from cholera, Margaret’s back in town with a to do list; a scandalous list. She wants to live life to the beat of her own drummer, without the encumbrance of a husband, and sets out to do so with the help of Lord Roger Abbey.
Roger, professional actor in the theater and unconventional, was the bane of his family existence when he left school for the theater. Bent on never falling in love or marrying, Roger and fate have a date. For fate has other things in mind for Roger and Margaret. A laughter filled romp with a touch of mystery through Regency England, my review of Lady Lands The Lord follows.
CHARACTERS, PLOTTING, DEVELOPMENT:
Although Lady Lands The Lord is a Regency romance, Meyers also included mystery and subterfuge. As a result you have all the ingredients for a sweet clean romance with mystery, subterfuge, and intrigue. The seed of mystery are sown as each chapter begins with a short letter from Orpah to her sister Hannah; detailing her romance with a mysterious gentleman. I realized quickly something did not ring true with the gentleman’s courtship of Orpah. Meyers slowly revealed how Orpah fit into Margaret’s life and the outcome of the illicit romance. With multi-layered plotting, Lady Lands The Lord held my attention from start to finish. Meyers wove the plot threads together to form a solid mystery Regency romance.
I love the Kay sisters, each one different in their own way; each marrying men perfect for them. Roger is the perfect mate for unconventional Margaret; he will allow her to expand her wings and fly. Meyers developed her characters to their full potential. The mystery intrigues the reader as Meyers leads you through Margaret’s list. Margaret was born before her time, she would have fit perfectly in the women’s rights movement of our time. Highlighting inequity of women in society compared to the men, Meyers allowed Margaret to taste the freedom of being a man.
In concluding my Regency romance book review of Lady Lands The Lord, I found a solid story-line with well-developed likeable characters, and pacing in line with the length of the book. Meyers created an entertaining read without the use of fluff or sex. I found a few minor editing errors, which did not affect my enjoyment of the book; this could have been due to download error. I would not hesitate to buy this book for my self or a friend.
