A Loyal Companion by Barbara Metzger
Camy here! This is one of the more entertaining Regency romances I’ve read from Barbara Metzger (although I haven’t read all her books yet by any means). Ms. Metzger’s novels are always funny and a little wacky, but this one was hilarious to me. I like books with dogs in them, so if you’re a dog lover, you’ll definitely enjoy this one.
Here’s the back cover blurb:
SPOILED AND UNGOVERNED, FITZ WAS NOT A SUITABLE COMPANION FOR A LADY OF FASHION....
And certainly no proper chaperon. Fitz begged to disagree--after all, a dog was a true Incomparable as far as friendship, loyalty, and protection--and soon lovely Miss Sonia was plucked by her rusticated roots and packed off, dog and all, to London. Perhaps there she would find a husband to tame her free-spirited ways--and keep her out of trouble.
Sonia, however, always had a soft spot for the underdog, and Darius Conover was such a fellow. Scorned by society for a scandalous deed, Conover was not redeemed even by his heroics in battle. Until he met Sonia and Fitz, two passionate souls undaunted by even the most odious circumstances--and decidedly determined to undo the shackles binding his heart.
Camy here: Doesn’t that sound like an adorable story premise? Anyway, if you pick this one up, let me know how you enjoy it! If you buy the Kindle version, you can also buy the audiobook version at the same time for only $1.99.
