“One does not say no to the Prince Regent.”
When I first saw this book I knew that I had to read it. The Lost Lieutenant is a novel written by Erica Vetsch and I loved it. The cover immediately drew me in and once I read the blurb, I couldn’t wait to get my hands on it. It is one of my new favorite Regency Christian novels!
The Lost Lieutenant is about Evan, a soldier turned Earl. He was given the honor of becoming an Earl of Whitelock because he saved the life of someone the Prince Regent cares about. He saved the life of the Prince’s godson, if only he could remember saving the Prince’s godson or even what he was doing. The next thing Evan knows, he finds himself an earl, the master of an estate, and a husband to a woman he knows nothing about.
First of all, the cover features Evan, which I loved. It is not often that you see a male on the cover of a book like this, but it was perfect. Evan drew me in from the beginning, I felt for him as he tried to gain back his memories, learn how to be an earl and be a good husband. But things are always more complicated than they look.
Diana was a perfect match for Evan. She had been so used to evil men that she didn’t know what to think about Evan. But as she got to know him, she saw that he was a kinder man then she could have thought. Once they truly got to know each other, they began to care for each other. Evan trusted Diana, he helped build her up. While Diana helped him stay positive and helped in as he tried to get his home together.
I can’t say enough about how much I liked this book. It was so hard to watch Diana and Evan struggle through their marriage and getting their home together. But I wanted to cheer when everything started to work out. This book had a knight in shining armor, an evil to defeat, and a love story.
I would definitely recommend The Lost Lieutenant. It was a clean regency christian book, that left you wanting more. I am so excited for the next book and I can’t wait to read about Marcus!
I voluntarily reviewed a complimentary copy of this book which I received from the author. All views expressed are only my honest opinion.
