Lord Haversham Takes Command by Heidi Ashworth

Lord Haversham Takes Command by Heidi Ashworth

Summary from Goodreads:
Lord Haversham feels as if he is always running, first from Lord and Lady Avery, his foolish parents, then from the consequences of a schoolboy prank gone awry. Now a secret service agent to the young Queen Victoria, he has run back to England from traitors who seek his life. Little does he know he is running into danger of a different kind; the perceptive, sapphire-blue gaze of his childhood love, Miranda Crenshaw. How is he to win her heart without giving away his secret and endangering the life of the Queen? 

Mira's parents, Sir Anthony and Lady Crenshaw, had always assumed their daughter would wed her lifelong friend, Harry. However, when he returns to England after a long absence, gone is the boy they had known and loved. Instead he is Bertie, a silly fop exactly like his flibbertigibbet parents. As such, her parents feel obliged to wed her to George, the young Duke of Marcross, whom Mira despises. Instead, she dreams of the man Harry was meant to be. When she catches a glimpse of him beneath his silly facade, she must find a way to persuade her parents he is the man for her--before he once again runs out of her life.

4 Stars

Read August 2013

Historical Fiction, e-book on Kindle (Phone App), currently only 99 cents, but price will undoubtedly go up.

My Review:
I enjoyed Miss Delacourt Speaks Her Mind and Miss Delacourt Has Her Day a few years ago.  Then this last Christmas, Heidi Ashworth published Lady Crenshaw's Christmas.  I was so happy there were more stories about Miss Delacourt and her family.  How could I not like Lord Haversham Takes Command?

This story has all of the things that I liked about the other books.  It has great likeable characters, evil and annoying ones too, a historical English setting, romance and adventure.  There are great kisses in this book.  Each chapter is told from 3rd person POV for the two main characters.  It gives us a glimpse at what each is experiencing and feeling.  I like knowing what each is experiencing in the story.  

And I would be happy to have another story from Heidi Ashworth if she would like to continue this next generation of stories.

Warnings: Shooting with pistols

I would let my 15 year old read this book.
