When beautiful Lady Jane Rievaulx begins her service to the Queen at Richmond Palace, she is thrilled to see the court's newest arrival . . . Master James Lacey.

No matter that Jane was previously courted by the eldest Lacey brother—James is the one who has won her heart. For his part, James cannot deny his fascination with Jane; his plans, however, do not allow for love. He is about to set sail on a treacherous journey to the Americas, seeking absolution for what he sees as past sins. But when Jane is forced into a terrible situation by her own family, only one man can save her. Will Master James return to his lady before it's too late?

(MY THOUGHTS)       5  HEARTS!!!!!
 I have to admit, I didn't read the first book in The Lacey Chronicles, but after reading The Queen's Lady, which is the second book in this series,I am definitely reading The Other Countess. I love Eva Edwards’ writing, and I love the Lacey brothers. I also have to know about Will and Ellie's romance now. The Queen's Lady is about the second Lacey's brother, James, and his love for Jane. Eve Edwards has written a beautiful Historical love story about a young woman of eighteen fighting for her right to have the life she wants, and James, the young man she loves.

Jane is being punished by her father after she breaks off an arranged marriage with an Earl. Jane's punishment is to be disgraced by her father so he can break Jane's rebellious will. But Jonas Paton, Marquee of Rievaulx, marries Jane not as a wife, but so he can rescue her from this horrible punishment. Jonas dies within the first year of their marriage, and Jane becomes one of the Queen's Ladies in order to protect herself from her father and Jonas's three sons. At the Queen's court, she sees James Lacey. James has just returned from an English military mission, and he’s not the same young man Jane remembers from a year ago. James is still the love of Jane’s heart and the man she wants to be with. But after seeing the effects of war, James is a ghost of the man he used to be with plenty of anger. Jane is also fighting a war of her own, against her father and Jonas's three sons, and James will not confess his love for Jane because he feels as if he cannot offer her anything of the man he used to be.

The Queen's Lady is heart-felt, tender, a love story about Jane trying fight for herself and James, the man she loves, in a time when women have no power. I highly recommend The Queen's Lady as a beautiful love story, where love always wins and can heal the broken hearted.
