Marcus Granton only wants to be left alone after the death of his wife while she was in another man's bed. Living only with the company of his maid he doesn't enjoy company so when he comes across an injured woman knowing he can't very well leave her his plans are to only let her stay until she's healed then send her on her way.

Lady Lilian Martin was on the run after being accused of a murder she didn't commit so when she wakes in Marcus's home she's immediately worried he'll find out who she i

Lady Lilian fell in love with Marcus, Viscount Granton, when she saw him at a house party she, her mother and younger sister Theresa were attending. Her deceased father had left them very little and her ailing mother wants to find her a husband before she dies. An aging Duke who makes her skin crawl seems to be the only choice when she learns Marcus is already married. She is saved from marrying the Duke as her sister is determined to be a Duchess.

A few years later, the Duke is dead and Lilian i

This is the 3rd story in the series, where the heroines get into trouble, and it was lovely. I really like Ms Goodger’s writing style. She manages to make the hero an asshole, but at the same time makes me love him, really understand why he’s doing what he’s doing and give him a very redeeming spark from the start 

The novel starts with the heroine being courted by the duke the heroine in book 2 ran from. It was a disaster and he’s a reprehensible asshole! He made me want to barf! Anyway, you gu

I would like to thank Jane Goodger, Lyrical Press, and Kensington Publishing Corp. for allowing me to read this novel in exchange for an honest review.

Thought to have murdered the Duke of Weston, Lady Lilian Martin flees with little more than the clothes on her back. Lord Granton, aka Marcus Dunford, discovers her, weak and mostly unconscious, and reluctantly takes her to his home to recover her health. Small inconveniences keep her in residence, much to Dunford’s annoyance. Plagued by a broken

Lady Lost by Jane Goodger is the third book in her Lost Heiresses series. I haven't previously read any books by this author, but after reading this one, I am sure I will. Although this is part of a series, it can easily be read as a stand alone story.

Lady Lillian Martin finds herself on the run, accused of a murder she didn't commit. She knows the evidence is stacked against her and has no wish to hang. She runs off, poorly dressed, with only a small amount of money, and carries on running. She

Perhaps he was weak. Perhaps that was why he tried so hard to keep his emotions in check, to never let them show.

A Lost lady or deliberately misplaced?

I really enjoyed Lady Lilian Martin. She is spirited and feisty.
Lord Marcus Granton withdrew from the world when the scandal of his wife found dead in bed--another man's bed, broke. He's hidden himself away on his cliff top estate overlooking the North Sea. Gothic enough for you?
When Lilian descends (well collapses really) on his bolthole looking for asylum and respite having been accused of murder, quickly followed by a child and a plethora of servants, Ma

A beautiful story by Jane Goodger. This is the third book in The Lost Heiresses Series.

Marcus Dunford is a nobleman who is hiding away from Society and everything to do with it. He has been betrayed by his unfaithful dead wife and made a fool of in front of his friends and family. He decides to go to a dilapidated estate that he owns and stay there and talk to no one. He has just two servants and they both leave before it gets dark because the locals say it is haunted.

I truly enjoyed this sweet and simple love story. This being such an unusual and original story, made it very exciting believable. First time reading this author, but it will by no means be the last time.

Marcus Dunford, Lord Granton, had left London a year ago, after his unfaithful wife’s death, and relocated to his dilapidated estate off the Black Sea. Never prone to emotional outbursts, he now wallows in solitude. One day, on his way home, his carriage nearly ran over a woman, who was lying on the road. Lady Lilian Martin had collapsed after escaping from her sister Theresa’s home, where Lilian was permitted to exist. Theresa’s husband, the nefarious Duke of Weston was murdered, and Theresa ac ...more

Great Characters

Our hero is the epitome of understatement, continually hiding his feelings even from himself. I enjoyed h ow the author portrayed him, as well as the other characters with their challenges. Several complex relationships challenged them all. I enjoyed the story.

Strong characters, evocative settings, murder mystery, love of a child, love of family. This story has it all! Oh, and a wonderful, sexy love story as well. A gem.

Miss Lilian Martin, age 18, is the daughter of a deceased Earl and her mother is a Countess. She is attending the Barrington summer party along with her mother and her younger sister, Theresa. It is the end of her first season and the girls and their mother are preparing to return to their rundown manor home in Cornwall.

The Duke of Weston appears to have set his cap for Lilian but she does not care for him at all. Sadly, her mother is not well and she knows she will probably die soon. Her mothe
I nearly gave up on this book after reading the first few chapters. The writing seemed a bit lacklustre, the heroine, Lady Lilian (and her sister) somewhat shallow, and as another reviewer pointed out, there were abrupt jumps from one scene to another. I overlooked the latter, given that this is an ARC and presumably, these will be corrected in the final print. The writing did pick up a fair bit, the story telling flowing, the heroine became a much stronger character and the hero, Marcus Dunford ...more

This was the most engaging and sensual romance that I have read in a long time. The author does a great job of writing so much into this fine story. I like the characters who had thoughts and feelings of their own. Even though this is in a series, it can be read as a stand alone.

I received a copy of this title from the publisher for an honest review. My rating is 3.75 stars, but since that isn't an option, I rounded up to 4. Lillian finds herself at a house party being pursued by the Duke of Weston who makes her uncomfortable, but plans on accepting so that her dying mother will be assured that both her daughters will have a secure future. Her younger sister Theresa ends up stealing Weston from Lillian and marries him. The marriage is not a happy one but Lillian finds h ...more

This is the third book in Jane Goodger's Lost Heiress series. In fact the "hero" is Rose's (book 2) brother. Marcus is a rather tragic figure, trying to recover from his wife's many infidelities and death. He vows never to give his heart again but wants to remain a!oof from all emotion. Enter Lilian and Mabel. Although they appear separately in the storyline, they are very much integral to Mercu Dunford's wellbeing. Lilian is on the run, after her sister's wicked husband was murdered. Knowing sh ...more
Reviewed for NetGalley:

This book was pretty good, but it did have some serious blank spots in it, where things could have been more fleshed out, but they weren't. There is a great example of this in the very beginning of the book. Our heroine is hiding from someone who she may be getting married to (duty over actual feelings) and she's in a window seat behind some curtains. Two people come in and have a push up contest and then SUDDENLY she's walking with her sister to watch the croquet match. L

"Lady Lost" was an enjoyable read and it's the first book I've read by Ms. Goodger. The premise of the book is a man hardened by an unfaithful wife should/could never love or marry again. The details about Marcus Granton's unhappy marriage was teased out throughout the book. His first wife was truly horrible to him and even with her death, he did not feel free of the taint she caused with his peers. When Lilian comes into his life, he is determined not to let this slip of a woman find a way into ...more

3.5 stars. This book starts off slowly as Marcus Granton deals with having not only Lillian but also a sweet little girl invade the privacy and isolation of his home at the same time. Marcus's first marriage ended horribly and he is not at all excited about his unwanted feelings toward both of his new visitors. Lillian has been living a fearful existence in her lecherous brother-in-law's home and when he is murdered, she is the number one suspect. The first half moves almost too slowly and I fou ...more

Great opening!

The duke is seriously creepy. I'm getting pedophile vibes.

Good riddance!

I guess it really sucked if you were sick in this part of York.

Those witches!! Both his wife and this abusive nincompoop.

I get attached to things, too.

She'll be happy later in life, when she looks younger than she is.

I hate his father.

Her sister sounds so changed.

Well that was a depressing proposal.

He was married, but he's practically a virgin himself.

Women had to wear so many layers back then.

Oh no!

First, I would like to thank Lyrical Press for gifting me this book through netgalley. I loved this story from start to finish. The characters are well developed and written. The storyline is written well. I look forward to reading more from Jane Goodger, especially when she wrote a first time love scene for the couple and I actually felt it was a very convincing first time. It's the first time I have ever actually enjoyed reading a virgin love scene. I am going to say that it's nice to feel the ...more

I really enjoyed Marcus and Lilian's story!

Lilian is accused of a murder she didn't commit. She is on the run when Marcus rescues her and lets her recover in his home. As much as he doesn't want to feel something for Lilian, Marcus finds his attraction growing for her everyday.

Add to the story a child, by Marcus's first wife and trying to solve the murder and we have a well rounded story. This was a great addition to the Lost Heiresses series and I throughly enjoyed it!
