Becoming Lady Lockwood

Becoming Lady Lockwood

Amelia Beckett is delighted to be a widow. Married by proxy to a man she’d never met, Amelia recognizes that a fortuitous entry into widowhood frees her from meddlesome chaperones and matchmakers. Heiress to her mother’s sugar plantation in Jamaica, she happily anticipates working in a man’s world, with the additional credibility of her new title: Lady Lockwood. But with the arrival of Captain Sir William Drake, her plans quickly go awry . . . William has traversed the Atlantic with one purpose. If he cannot prove that Amelia’s marriage to his brother was a fraud, she will be entitled to a sizeable portion of his family’s estate. He is determined to return this duplicitous Lady to London for an official hearing, and he carries with him a letter that will ensure her cooperation . . . Left with no choice, Amelia joins the captain on his return voyage to England, and the two quickly find that ship life does not allow for evasion. Amelia and William are ceaselessly thrown together, and amidst fierce storms and ocean battles, what began as antipathy seems to be evolving quite unexpectedly. But as they draw ever closer to their destination, will the impossibility of their circumstances shatter any hope of a future together?

Praise for Becoming Lady Lockwood

“Moore does a lovely job of showcasing sizzle in this must-read for fans of regency and historical romance.” ~ Foreword Reviews

My Thoughts

 I thoroughly LOVED reading this book and learning more about naval history during the Napoleonic Wars between France and England. The characters are superb. Amelia is such a fun, determined heroine who takes on any challenge with a positive outlook and vibrant spirit. The Earl of Lockwood is an awesome hero too, although it took him some time before he trusted that Amelia wasn’t trying to sneak something over on him. This book gave me a little bit of it all–budding romance, violent ship fighting, devious plots, heartbreak, and amazing character growth. I would highly recommend this book to anyone who loves historical romances. It’s one of the better ones I’ve read.

  1. Thanks for providing a great book review! I’m floundering on what to read next…have started a couple and fizzle out by the second paragraph. This might be where I need to start.
    Thank you, Char!

    • I only sign up to read and review the ones I think will interest me, but this one went far and above the normal enjoyable reads. I loved the characters and the background history was woven in so well that it was quite captivating.

  2. Thanks, Charissa. This looks excellent. I love the sound of the strong female character. And I imagine the author had to do a lot of research in order to write this novel.
