Loving Lydia, is a sweet, inspirationally touched romance, set during the regency era. When Lady Lydia, a moral, naïve young woman enters society, she is confounded by Lord Alex, a known reprobate rumored to have a dark side. Yet he captures her heart. When Lydia is sucked into his dark world, can he save her and their love?
Alex followed Lydia into the gazebo, which had a number of lanterns lit in the event guests wandered this far. Stopping in the middle, Alex began to remove his jacket.
“What are you doing?” Lydia asked with some alarm.
“I can’t very well show you my burn with these tight sleeves.”
“Very well,” she answered stiffly and turned her back.
Alex chuckled to himself. It wasn’t as if he was completely disrobing. After the jacket was gone, he rolled up his sleeve. “You may turn around now.”
Lydia focused on his bandaged arm and Alex could tell she was trying hard not to look at his shoulders. Had it been any other type of setting and had he not been in pain, he may have laughed. The blush spreading across her cheeks was enough for him to remain quiet.
Gently and carefully she unwound the bandage. The burn was puffy and blistering and about the size of her hand. “There is no sign of infection, yet. There is a better risk of that happening if the blisters break.”
Very gently her fingers traced the skin surrounding the burn. She caused him no pain during her examination, but something entirely different. A longing developed. He wanted to kiss her, and not for the sake of shocking her. The feeling confused him.
Unable to stop himself, Alex raised his other hand to touch her face, gently brushing her soft cheek with the tips of his fingers.
Surprised, Lydia looked up at him. Alex didn’t give her a chance to speak but brought his lips to hers.
“This was a wonderful read. I had tears at the end. Alex is a true hero and Lydia is a perfect heroine with strength and convictions that stay true to character. Each of the characters is unique and well thought out and Amy's portrayal of the time period is dead on. The characters and storyline are wrought with just enough suspense and drama to pull the reader along. Thanks for the enjoying read.” Claire Collins author of Fate & Destiny and Images of Betrayal
“Surrounded by characters that are as real as your best friends, Amy transports her reader into the intrigue of Regency England. She leads you through London streets and backrooms that are filled with enough schemes and trickery to leave you gawking. Her storyline is sweet and tender but with enough mayhem to keep you thinking of her work long after turning the last page.” Carol A. Spradling, author of Cost of Freedom
