This may be the most romantic book you'll ever read! _Lost Lady_, the second in the James River Trilogy is by far the best book of the series. The story of Travis Stanford and Regan Weston is a turbulent ride of highs and lows. You'll joy at the journey of Regan, a high born English lady who's been sheltered all of her life, as she makes the long transition from frightened waif to powerful, confident and passionate woman. You'll marvel at Travis's overpowering, bigger than life romance. You'll sigh, you'll laugh, you'll cry, and you'll wish this could come true. _Lost Lady_ is a fine example of Ms. Deveraux at her all time best, mixing just the right amount of melt-your-heart romance and heart-wrenching angst she delivers a powerful tale of romance that will sweep you away. Worth reading over and over again if for no other reason than to sigh at the fairy tale wedding night and the unbelievable proposal. First rate romance. You'll never look at flowers, especially roses, the same way again.

Ah. Jude does it again! It seems like lately, all I want to do is to sink into a romantic book and let the characters' love life and problems sweep me away ~~ I can count on a good ending which is what I need at this time. This book didn't disappoint me! I thoroughly enjoyed this book ~~ in spite of a busy life as mother of toddler twins and a wife ~~ I managed to "escape" for a few hours in reading this novel.

Regan manages to escape her overbearing uncle and guardian and lost her finace ~~ only to land into Travis Stanford's arms. Never wooed or courted by the demanding Travis, Regan falls hard in love with this rugged American. Then she left him ~~ and that is when the novel really got to be fun for me! The heartaches they both suffered because of their stubbornness, but Travis really came through in the romance department.

This is a perfect novel for these chilly winter nights ahead ~~ it is bound to carry the reader away into a land of romance and happy endings.

Jude Deveraux's LOST LADY captivates the reader to follow the growth of Regan Weston is expelled from her own home to face a strange world alone. The seemingly sweet simple girl is equal to the task and flees to Colonies, where love and adventure await her. A crude America forces her to put aside all illusions and stand on her own.
Jude Deveraux's James River series has stood the test of time and is as good a read today as when it was first published.

The story started out potentially good but after a few chapters it was difficult to like the heroine. The story is about Regan and Travis who met accidentally when Regan ran away from home and stumbled on to Travis. They became intimate but when Travis realized that Regan was a virgin he felt responsible for her especially since Regan would not tell him who she really was. Attracted to her and at the same time worried about her safety, Travis forced Regan to go back to America with him. Throughout their trip, Regan was annoyingly repetitive about being a prisoner and seemed so closed minded and lacking in common sense about the fact that she had no one and nowhere to run to and if not for Travis she would have been raped. All throughout the story Travis was consistently caring and patient though sometimes too bossy.

The 2nd half of the story went downhill when after Travis and Regan married, the latter found herself overwhelmed with being wife to Travis and as mistress of his plantation and so decided to run away. For 3 years she stayed away from Travis while the latter was devastated by her disappearance. What is also frustrating about the story is that after finding Regan and his daughter Travis did not even show anger at Regan for what she did. He was simply happy to find them while Regan again typically only thought about herself and could not decide whether to go back to Travis thinking by doing so she would relinquish her independence. I did not want to waste my time and finished the book quickly.

There was no need to bookmark any page in this book because every single page was worth a second and third reading. English Regan, a seventeen year old girl, upon hearing her fiance and uncle speak disparagingly of her and the real reason for marriage, decides to run away and right into the arms of our hero, American Travis Stanford, one of the most lovable and warm heroes I have come across in a long long time and I am a huge fan of historical romance! I only read historical romance!

This is an amazing read. What a refreshing escape from the conventional storyline where the two lovebirds bicker continuously. Regan and Travis fall passionately in each other's embraces and are not shy to hide their love with harsh words or misunderstandings.

I highly recommend this book to anyone who is searching for a next cutesy read. There are so many "aw" moments and enough love scenes (about 7 or so, the book is short!) to feel the love between these two characters. You don't have to be a fan of devearaux to see how incredibly lovely this book is. Anyone who wants to escape into a warm world with a cute alpha hero and a heroine who must learn how to come into her own person should this book a try. i promise you won't be disappointed. so any "awwww" moments.....will you saying, "aw" at every scene.
