bestselling author Mary Jo Putney continues her stunning Lost Lords series with this stirring, sensual story of a rebellious nobleman drawn to a lovely widow with a shocking past.
As the sole remaining heir to the Earl of Daventry, Alexander Randall knows his duty: find a wife and sire a son of his own. The perfect bride for a man in his position would be a biddable young girl of good breeding. But the woman who haunts his imagination is Julia Bancroft—a village midwife with a dark secret that thrusts her into Randall’s protection.
Within the space of a day, Julia has been abducted by her first husband’s cronies, rescued, and proposed to by a man she scarcely knows. Stranger still is her urge to say yes. A union with Alexander Randall could benefit them both, but Julia doubts she can ever trust her heart again, or the fervent desire Randall ignites. Yet perhaps only a Lost Lord can show a woman like Julia everything a true marriage can be…Praise for Loving a Lost Lord

A review from Coffee Time Romance
(Sunday, March 28, 2010)
Ms. Putney has written a love story that is aggressive and gentle, tranquil and loud, and full of adventure and courage. Never Less Than a Lady shows how much strife, abuse, neglect, and hate Julia goes through at the hands of her vicious first husband and yet she still has the valor and strength of ten men. I felt that Alex’s patience, understanding, and calming nature really meshed with what Julia needed in the story. This tale is beautifully written. I am very glad I got the chance to read this novel and I can guarantee you will be equally satisfied in reading this heroic tale of love the second time around.
