My review contains spoilers and they're mostly my thoughts...
My Dear Lord Forrester is a novella and book 2 of Eliza Lloyd’s The Infamous Forresters series. Honestly, I find no fault in the books of this series that I’ve read so far, only that I always end up wishing they were full-length novels instead of novellas.
Book 1, What A Mistress Wants is the story of the widowed Duke of Sterling, Adam Forrester and his mistress, Eloisa. Mistress stories don’t always appeal to me, but this one was an amazing read. It was a novella, but the author packed a lot of emotions between the pages. Adam and Eloisa had been together for at least 4yrs. when the story opens so they already have a long history. However it didn’t feel like I missed too much. Adam was devoted to his wife, Nellie, until the day she died. He’s got 4 kids, including the future heir to the Sterling Dukedom. He still misses his wife.
Adam hopes to remarry one day, but right now, he’s all set with an adventurous paramour to take care of his more basic needs. He adores Eloisa and has no intention of giving her up anytime soon. But Eloisa, who is the daughter of a gentleman fallen on hard times, has something else in mind. Though their liaison was build on needs based of money and pleasure—each helping the other out with what they desperately needed at that time—Eloisa is now hopelessly in love with Adam. However, he’s a Duke and he’d never marry his mistress. She certainly has no interest in competing with a ghost for his affection. Just how could she carry on being his mistress knowing her feelings are not returned? Eloisa decides she’d have to make a quick decision to whether or not she’d continue to suffer in silence or put her foot down and do something about it. To find out what she did and the turn of events, you must give this novella a try!
