ABOUT THE BOOK: Release Date December 5, 2017
Lord Marcus Bowles has stained his family’s reputation for the last time. Only after spending a scandal-free year restoring some far-flung property can this second son return in good graces. But Marcus isn’t one to abandon a lone damsel on a dark country lane.
One stolen kiss and Genevieve Turner’s handsome midnight savior disappears. Typical. No matter, Gen is finally on the way to her new post, and hopefully to finding her grandmother as well. Instead she finds her mischievous hero is her new employer. Surely a few more kisses won’t hurt…
REVIEW: 4 out of 5 for this reader folks!
Can we just pause for one quick moment and appreciate the cover of this book? I do love it when a historical romance author nails a cover. Some can come across as cheesy or cheap but this is a beautiful cover. Soft colours, hot characters with a tantalizing promise of sexy but not smutty. AND .. THAT DRESS!
The Lord Meets His Lady by Gina Conkle is the third book of her “Midnight Meetings” historical romance series, and while it absolutely can be read as a stand alone, I never recommend one do this, as why miss any opportunity to get a complete picture of a series? That being said, do not deprive yourself of a good story if previous books are an issue.
Lord Marcus Bowles has been a bad bad boy and is banished to seclusion for one too many scandals until he can sort himself out. He had been indulgent, is the second son, and is ready to go and learn his lesson properly this time. He will be living in one of his families older not so grande properties to keep himself out of scandal. He is loving by nature, kind even, playful, handsome but ready to turn things around and be a grown up. However, Marcus still has to be Marcus and rescuing a damsel in distress is truely too tempting to resist .. but this damsel may be his worst scandal yet.
Genevieve Turner has lived a hard life. She is the product of a mother who was a whore and died of the french pox and a father who’s identity she doesn’t know. She is also loving, kind, perhaps a little naive in some ways, and sadly, has had to resort to selling herself a time or two to make ends meet. She is eager to live a good life .. a better life. She was tricked into signing a contract (one that forces her life’s direction in a place she is not comfortable in), and when things comes to light she opts to dash away, assume a new identity and start a new life. This life never was suppose to include a stolen kiss, a man she is drawn to, more kisses and revealing truths that can affect a future she just started.
This was an a great book about two people meant for each other. They were complimentary, really suited each other and while yes you have a push and pull (let’s face it, the story would be boring without that), it wasn’t so dramatic I was rolling my eyes. I will say the story hung a little for me and there were times I was hoping the story would just get moving a little. However, Gina writes with detail, so the images you come up with in your mind are crisp. I also have to admit that I really like that Genevieve was sullied for the times she lived in, and despite that, love can still happen. It was such a stoic time that I like to read a little stolen happy stories like this.
A great book one can enjoy over the holidays and if historical romance is your go to genre then please do yourself a favour and check this one out!

While Lydia has received all of the training a lady should endure, she’s decidedly un-ladylike. She despises her corset and isn’t interested in marriage. She’d prefer to remain unmarried and spend her time improving her art. But if she wants a chance at happiness, she’ll have to set aside her fear of the earl and discover the man hiding behind the beast.
Will Edward and Lydia’s greatest discovery be each other before time runs out?
