About “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 companion to the dowager countess. As she takes up residence at the estate, the young woman soon finds that life at the Park is far more complicated than she imagined. The lines of her position are blurred, and she is neither family nor servant. So when the countess plans a grand house party, Arabella is content to hide in the shadows. But one gentleman sees her there.
Lieutenant Linus Lancaster has retired from the navy and is not looking for love, especially when he finds himself entangled in his sisters’ scheme to trap him into finding a wife at a house party at Lampton Park. Yet amid the festivities, he’s impossibly drawn to the dowager’s quiet companion, Arabella. Their regard for each other is undeniable, but they are haunted by their pasts. Can the two find a way to bridge their two worlds?

I began “Loving Lieutenant Lancaster” with high hopes. Sarah M. Eden is an excellent storyteller. Her novels are always filled with a good love story. This one was no different. As I began to read though, many names of characters sounded familiar too me. I went to my library of books and realized that many of her characters from other novels were in this one too. I love when that happens, but I didn’t remember much about the other people so as soon as I finished this novel, I jumped into some of her previous books. So worth the walk down memory lane to become acquainted with past characters.
This story is about Lieutenant Lancaster and Arabella. They are drawn too each other, yet remain apart because of their circumstance of status and their past. The connection between the two is undeniable and with the help or not so helpful friends and family members that seem to surround the couple throughout most of the story. I really enjoyed the twists and turns of past characters that gave the story more depth.
All in all another great novel by the lovely, Sarah M. Eden. Grab your copy today and comment below about what your favorite part of the book was.
