Loving Lieutenant Lancaster
Orphaned as a child, Arabella Hampton was the unwanted and unloved charge of a cruel aunt and neglectful uncle. The only light in her young life was the kindness of the Jonquil family, and she clung to the childish dream of someday living with them at Lampton Park. Now, years later, that opportunity is presented to Arabella in a most unexpected way: she is to be the lady’s...more
Arabella is a sweet but previously emotionally abused young woman who’s been taken in by the Jonquil family (from one of Eden's longtime series) as a companion to their elderly mother. Linus Lancaster (from Eden's other multi-book ...more
I love Sarah Eden's writing style. She has a way of creating as story with humor. I loved the dynamics of this book. Bringing the brooding Duke of Kielder and the flamboyant Lord Lampton in one story is sure to have tempers boiling. I love both of them for very different reasons.
But in this story, they are both secondary characters. T ...more
I've always been of the opinion that true love should know no bounds, no social classes, and no limits. Arabella and Linus develop a sweet friendship that quickly blossoms and spa ...more
Slow. Slow. Slow. Slow. Slow. This is competently written and with engaging protagonists. I very much enjoyed seeing them respond to one another and to see their affections engaged. It was very sweet and since I liked them both immensely, fun.
Unfortunately, this book is populated with appro ...more
There romance was so sweet and it was fun to see so many characters from previous books.
One of the things I love best about Sarah Eden's books is how she makes characters come alive. They are real to me; flawed, hurting and sometimes broken but no matter how they come, I always end up loving them. By the end of the book I feel as though I know these cha ...more
This book is about Linus. He has retired from the Navy and really doesn’t want to do the job that his older brother, who passed away 11 years ago should be doing. Linus is a wonderful person who truly ca ...more
At the heart of the book is the story of Linus and Arabella. It was wonderful to get to know Linus better! He is intuitive, unselfish, hard working, and great with kids. He is quite a catch! Arabella is unassuming and kind. She has such a tender connect ...more
Calling it quits. Too much focus on couples from previous books. The H and h are boring and there’s no spark between them.
Meh. Sarah Eden is hit or miss for me.
This was by far my favorite of all of Sarah Eden's period novels. I related well to the characters and their honest, genuine emotions. This novel features two series that are blended together, and loved how it pulled these two series together. S.E. really characterized these characters well and put me in their heads with their insecurities, foibles, faults, and of course, and more importantly for me, their thoughts and emotions. Pleasure to read ...more
As the Loving Lieutenant Lancaster by Sarah M Eden opens, you have Adam, Duke of Kielder calling a meeting of his brother in laws, Linus and Harry. He has a problem. Persephone is in ...more
It certainly didn't disappoint, but neither did it really amaze or fascinate me. Seeking Persephone is still my favourite Lancaster, but this one is quite good too. I suppose I'm starting to prefer a little less romance and more focus on the family itself, which was there, but still not enough for me. I think this is what makes me more eager for Eden's next book. I ju ...more
As for this couple, I loved them both. You can't help but adore both of them and cheer when th ...more
It’s always exciting getting to catch up on the other characters but Linus and Arabella held their own and really had a great relationship and fun banter between the two of them.
I look forward to reading the next books about the other siblings...and ...more
