Melissa's Review:

Lady in Waiting in book 1 in the Reluctant Brides series. This is Marie Tremayne's debut book, and I thought she did a pretty good job! I'll be grabbing the next book when it is released. This story has a runaway bride and changing identity tropes weaved together and it lead to an interesting read.

We start off with Clara Mayfield helping her sister run off with a man she loves even though he is below their station. Clara knows this will affect her during her season but didn't know it would wind up with her only choice being a horrendous man that her family accepts when he proposes all to repair their family name from scandal. Clara tries to come to terms with her fate but at the last second decides to run off, and with the help of her maid she changes her name and finds a job working as a maid at Lord Ashworth's estate. William, Lord Ashworth is instantly attracted to her and against his better judgement hires Clara (aka Helen now) even though he knows it will create trouble in the future. "Helen" does her best to work hard but things just keep happening to her and she winds up in William's arms. When William's niece comes to the estate we have even more issues arise and Helen grows closer to the family she's serving and weaving her way into William's heart. I couldn't wait to see when he figured out she wasn't who she claimed to be and that their relationship wouldn't be taboo if/when they got together.

Lady in Waiting is a lovely historical romance. This being a debut book, I was pleasantly surprised and can't wait to see MTremayne's writing hone even more in the later books. She did a good job at the pacing and it didn't have a dull moment. Poor Clara went through a lot in the book but didn't give up on herself which I liked. If you're looking for a new Historical Romance to try you should grab this book.
