The Lost Lieutenant

“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!

ABOUT THE BOOK

 Title: Traces
Author: Denise Weimer
Publisher: BLING! Romance
Release Date: March 5, 2020
Genre: Inspirational Romantic Suspense

When a failed romance and a $500,000 prize lure Kate Carson into participating in the reality TV show, Traces, the least she expects is to pick her partner. After all, she’s the PR spokeswoman of the company that derived a thirteen-lens, rotating camera from military use and installed it atop Atlanta’s tallest skyscraper. But she never would have chosen to evade techno hunters for twenty days with “G.I. Joe.”

Stoic, ex-military Alex Mitchell is the sort of man she always vowed to avoid, while the shadows of Alex’s past cause him to spurn emotional involvement. When Kate’s insider knowledge makes her a target of someone more threatening than game show hunters, Alex offers her only hope to reveal the dark plans of proponents of The Eye.

Book Review:

I really enjoyed this book, though it was not my usual genre. I was so happy to find it really entertaining! It definitely kept me reading, and I was, at different points, so nervous for the characters.

I really felt for Kate, she was really relatable in the circumstances. If anything like that happened to me, I probably would react like her, super out of my depth. She definitely grew throughout the book, even though it really only spanned a few days. Kate and Alex have to learn to trust each other, although they really do not know the other.Though they were both trying, it was quite an crazy adventure they were on.

Alex was really focused, but he was such a sweet guy! He was a protector, looking out for so many. Though he was very intense and could be gruff, he and Kate began to open up to one another.

The story felt really possible, which made it even more suspenseful. It is a concept that is very relevant and a little frightening. The book was a little on the shorter side, though it did feel completed. I appreciate how she incorporated their faith, though I would wish it was a little more prominent. They were still growing in their faith. It was cool how they learned to trust more and more in God and His strength. I do hope that we get to see more of Kate and Alex, I would love to see their future.
