Book Review: My Darling, My Disaster (Lords Of Essex #2) by: Amalie Howard & Angie Morgan

Release Date: March 27, 2017
from Entangled Select Historical
Goodreads | Amazon
Source: I received a copy of this book from the publisher via NetGalley in exchange for a fair and honest review.
"Lord Graham Findlay, the shamelessly virile Viscount Northridge, has a disgraceful secret, one he’ll do anything to hide. Holding his passions at bay, Gray has sworn off the fairer sex. But when temptation comes in the form of an intriguing woman he cannot easily avoid, Gray’s integrity—and his most depraved desires—are put to the ultimate test.

Self-assured and carefree Princess Svetlanka Volkonsky never dreamed she would one day become a lady’s maid to avoid a dangerous traitor. But danger also comes in many guises, especially in the sinful and devastatingly attractive lord of the manor who introduces her to a world of singular pleasure.

When Lana’s past emerges to threaten the life and the false identity she’s built in England, she and Gray find themselves falling into a tangled web of lies and intrigue...and the last place either of them expected to love."

My Thoughts:

I don't read historical romances all that often, but when I do I always tend to enjoy them and such was the case with My Darling, My Disaster. When I read My Rogue, My Ruin I really enjoyed it, but with My Darling, My Disaster these authors really hit their stride. I ADORED this book from beginning to end. 

Both Gray and Lana are great characters. Of course I loved Gray. He is so charming and swoony and is such a good guy. It's very easy to love him. But Lana was my favorite. She is so fesity and strong and I loved her. For a princess in hiding, she handles it well. She doesn't shy away from hard work or from doing what she has to do to keep herself and her sister safe. But she also doesn't sit around waiting to be saved. She takes risks and makes sacrifices to save those she loves. And her and Gray together are fantastic. They have so much chemistry; it seeps off the pages. 

Aside from the romance though, I also loved the bit of action throw in. Lana is in hiding and I was constantly worried she would be found. And when everything goes crazy the story is intense. The end of this book had me on the edge of my seat. I loved this balance to the story. I also loved that the story ran parallel to My Rogue, My Ruin. It was fun to see that storyline play out from an outside perspective. 

My Darling, My Disaster was a really great read and one I truly enjoyed. I look forward to more stories in the Lords of Essex series.


  1. This sounds like an exciting historical romance, Teresa, and I happen to adore HR's. ;) Gray being a swoony hero makes me curious but I'm most fond of feisty heroines in HR's so Lana piques my interest even more. I didn't know Howard had joined forces with Morgan to write HR's. I'll have to check out the series! :)

  2. I'm so glad you adored this one!! I love it when a sequel not only measures up to but surpasses the first book! The characters seem wonderful, and I love the sound of this. Awesome review!! *hugs*
