He refused to court her once. Can she trust his intentions this time?
Spunky Petunia Bateman may be a commoner, but she is far from common. Anyone who cannot appreciate that is not worth her time. Then her best friend’s fiancé, the deposed crown prince of Batavaria, awards her a title, and the man she once loved decides she might be worth another look. Think again, sir!
Lord Ashforde had considered the lovely Miss Bateman for his bride three years ago. But his family history convinced Ash that cool heads and calm demeanors must prevail. There is nothing cool and calm about his feelings for Petunia, which have only grown since he rashly decided against her. But can he convince her, and himself, to give their love another try?
When the prince asks Petunia to persuade Ash to take up their cause to see their kingdom restored, the two are thrown together, and the enemies of Batavaria take note. Can love blossom amid skullduggery? Especially with an unlikely couple that might be made for each other?

Hott Review of Never Love a Lord:
Never Love a Lord by Regina Scott is a great read. It’s an odd mix though. There’s suspense and intrigue but in a peaceful way. But, that’s perfect for Tuny.
I’ve loved all of the stories in this series though I’ll admit the book… and series felt too short. Not that any if it was rushed or incomplete it’s just that I’ve loved them each so much.
I’ve enjoyed watching Tuny’s peaceful support of her friends in the last few books and was crushed every time she mentioned it interacted with Ash. You could feel your hurt she still was. So it was with great trepidation that I began this book, worried that she’d be hurt again.
You’ll just have to read Never Love a Lord to find out what happened and why it took a royal guard to keep her safe.

Regina Scott started writing novels in the third grade. Thankfully for literature as we know it, she didn’t actually sell her first novel until she had learned a bit more about writing. Since her first Regency romance was published in 1998, her stories have traveled the globe, with translations in many languages including Dutch, German, Italian, and Portuguese. She is now the author of more than 50 works of warm, witty historical romance.
She and her husband of 30 years reside in Washington State on the way to Mt. Rainier. Regina Scott has driven four in hand, learned to fence, sailed on a tall ship, and dressed as a Regency dandy, all in the name of research, of course.
