The Mysterious Lord Millcroft is a regency romance. Written as part of the King’s Elite mini-series, the book has links to The Wild Warriners, but it can also be read as a stand-alone.
It opens in 1820 Nottinghamshire. Seb Leatham is currently recovering from a serious bullet wound. Whilst a patient, in the home of Dr Joe Warriner, Seb meets Lady Clarissa Beaumont.
Lady Clarissa has her eyes set on capturing a certain Duke, but despite all her best efforts, The Duke of Westbridge is dragging his feet over a marriage proposal. When Seb returns to work, he’s given an undercover job which requires him to pretend he is Lord Millcroft. The aristocratic role makes him uncomfortable until he persuades Lady Clarissa to help him with his cover story. She in turn hopes to use Seb to make her Duke jealous enough to propose. There follows a delightful simmering romance.
I’m currently enjoying reading books in this genre and this one is a lovely off-shoot of the Wild Warriners series. I would encourage anyone who hasn’t yet found the books which are linked to this one, to start at the beginning to get the best overall experience.
