Just a heads up.
This book is only an e-book but is free for Kindle.
Miss Amelia Stalwood may live in London at her absent guardian’s townhouse, but she’s never actually met any nobility, and instead of aristocrats, her closest friends are servants.
Quite by happenstance, she’s introduced to the Hawthorne family and their close family friend, Anthony, the reformed Marquis of Raebourne . They welcome her into their world, but just as she’s beginning to gain some confidence and even suspect she may have caught Anthony’s eye, she’s blindsided by an unexpected twist in her situation accompanied by nasty rumors.
Will she lose her reputation when the world that has only just accepted her turns its back on her, or will she rest in the support of the friends who’ve become like family and the man who’s shared his faith and captured her heart?
I thought this book was a good novella. It is a prequel to A Noble Masquerade by Kristi Ann Hunter. Hunter did an exceptional job telling Amelia’s story. Amelia was in A Noble Masquerade for a few chapters and seemed like a nice, sweet friend. This novella explains why she is so friendly to the servants and tells her story. I would first recommend reading A Noble Masquerade, before reading this book. A Lady of Esteem had only a few chapters and was really easy to read through.
