Pinning for Lord Lockhart
Lords for the Sisters of Sussex #5
By Jen Geigle Johnson

Charity Standish never anticipated having a Season but when her sister Lucy had hers she went along. Using the contacts to promote the causes near and dear to her heart she has made a name for herself among London's elite. And now the Duchess of York has offered to sponsor Charity's second London Season and a chance to further her reading salons and philanthropic endeavors. And a chance to further her acquaintance with Lord Lockhart.

Lord Andrew Lockhart is a man of means and he wants to use his ever-growing fortune to in some way benefit the poor. With advice from Charity, they decide on opening a school in one of London's poorer neighborhoods. Working closely with Charity he hopes to win her heart.

But an acquaintance from the past lays claim to Lord Lockhart's heart. With his honor directing his steps, Andrew finds himself no longer free to pursue the woman he loves. Faced with a future without love what path will each choose?

I really enjoy Charity, she isn't someone about to be pushed into a mold and be what society expects her to be. Her past of living in want makes her all the more aware of what those in need lack - a means to better themselves and the hope that something better could be theirs. Andrew Lockhart is the perfect man for Charity in that he sees the needs just as she does and wants to do something to help. But he is more cautious in trying to think through the situation and not be driven by his passions into danger. 

This is a perfect read if you love clean Regency-era romance. Each book from Jen Geigle Johnson becomes my new favorite and I LOVE all the books in the Lords for the Sisters of Sussex series they are just such a delight to read and reread. 

I was provided a complimentary copy of this book with no expectations but that I provide my honest opinion if I so desired. All thoughts expressed are my own.

About the Book:
Charity watches each of her sisters make plans to marry, one by one, and she is overjoyed for their happiness, but she doubts she will ever feel much of the same. She is busy in her causes, in her book groups, in her thinking bluestocking ways, but she has a secret. And no one knows, not even the man himself. But through all of her forward-thinking ways, she is pining for Lord Lockhart.

Lord Lockhart is the wealthiest man of any of their acquaintance. He recently received yet another inheritance when an old eccentric uncle passed on and he seeks ways to use his money responsibly. Charity is a good resource for him in this regard. And he just might have secrets of his own where she is concerned.

  1. It kept me engaged with this family of all women. I wish all women could find men like they each found. At least we can read about them in novels. This was a nice diversion from life for a bit.
