Rachael Miles has written quite an adventure in “Chasing the Heiress”. This novel is set in the time after the Napoleonic War. Lady Arabella Lucia Fairborne worked with her officer father on the battlefields tending the wounded soldiers. Colin Somerville was involved in the war as an officer and now was engaged on a mission for the Prince. Lucy had to escape from her avaricious cousin before he murdered her and Colin needed help finishing his mission. This story’s adventures were never-ending. Even though they were just “friends” Colin and Lucy became more than that as they travelled together. Lucy was on the run and Colin was to protect her, but somehow she was caught and went through untold horrors at the hands of her cousin and his cohorts. I think you will enjoy this fast-paced novel set in an England where class reigned. Aristocracy and servants were not to mix nor mingle. See how this works out in this offering from Ms. Miles.
I received a print copy of this book from NightOwlReviews.com in return for my honest review.
