Having read Valerie Bowman’s The Untamed Earl, I knew I was in for another good story with The Legendary Lord.

Sarah Highgate is a wealthy young woman who escapes London and an unwanted engagement. She accidentally ends up at Christian Bancroft’s hunting lodge instead and then immediately gets snowed in with him. What I thought was then going to be a serious case of Stockholm syndrome turned into a seriously sweet story. Sarah helps Christian overcome his conversational idiosyncrasies, and Christian helps Sarah re-enter London without scandal. It helped that Sarah’s time snowed in with Christian was brief.

I was attached to Sarah as a protagonist because she did so much more than just exist while being a woman, but she wasn’t without faults. I thought the second half of the book, where Christian and Sarah waffled over whether or not they should be together, was drawn out too long. But by halfway through, I was much too invested in the characters to mind. Christian and Sarah’s mutual friend, Lucy, provided some much-needed comic relief. Grab this book if you like short, sweet, quasi-historical romances.
