Review: Never a Mistress, No Longer a Maid by Maureen Driscoll

Never a Mistress, No Longer a Maid  (Kellington #1) by Maureen Driscoll

Caught behind enemy lines at the Battle of Waterloo, nurse Jane Wetherby is forced to seek shelter with British operative Lord Edward Kellington. After a night of passion, the two are separated. With nothing but the alias Jane used to protect her family, Lord Edward is unable to find the woman he cannot forget.

Seven years later, Jane courts scandal by serving as the unofficial surgeon in the village of Marston Vale. When Edward arrives to formalize his betrothal to a viscount's daughter in accordance with his late father's wishes, Jane has no choice but to watch the match proceed. When a threat from the past emerges, Jane must join forces with Edward to safeguard her loved ones. But at what risk to her heart?

My Thoughts:
I loved this! Jane and Ned meet under unusual circumstances and have one night together before they are separated. Since she doesn't give him her real name, he is unable to find her, though he puts a lot of effort into trying. She has her reasons for staying hidden, until seven years later when they meet accidentally. I love Jane's character because she is so strong and flouts convention in a society where women don't really have the freedom to do what they want. And Ned is very sweet, even if he doesn't always seem to make the right choice. A steamy Regency romance with a secret baby and a second chance at romance. So many things to love about this book. The author is currently working on the fifth book in the series and I can't wait to catch up on the Kellingtons.

  1. Thank you so much for giving my book a chance. I'll always have a place in my heart for the very imperfect Ned.


I would love to hear from you!
