You think you know Luna Gregory?
Maybe you see what her boss, the Marchioness of Lionsbridge, sees: the best PA she’s ever had, a 26-year-old fixer who makes problems disappear with four quiet words—‘Leave it with me.’ Or you see a remote, untouchable Ice Princess who the 500-year-old Arborage Estate’s heir presumptive longs to crush under his heel. Possibly, if you’re looking carefully, you see Luna as her friends see her: the quiet one, touched by childhood tragedy, who laughs at their jokes and has their backs no matter what.
But ultimately it takes charismatic, devastatingly attractive Swedish entrepreneur Stefan Lundgren, third in line to inherit the estate, to glimpse the intelligent, fiercely independent woman under Luna’s calm exterior. And what he sees he wants, this woman in ten thousand who is meant for him, body writhing beneath his in the dark of night, her inner self slowly revealing itself to him. Or so he believes.
But Luna has built an entire life predicated on concealment, on maintaining control and hiding dark things in drawers. It will take the entirety of the Lord and Master trilogy, from the manicured gardens of Arborage, to the wilds of Shetland, to the streets of Stockholm, for her to step out of the shadows in the face of a new threat to Arborage.
You think you know Luna? You don’t.
The Lord and Master trilogy:
Lord and Master
Her Master’s Servant
It's always hard for me to rate more than one book in a series/trilogy because there is always a book that stands out more than the rest. However, the whole trilogy was intriguing and captivating from the very beginning to the very end. In the first book (Lord and Master) we get to meet Luna Gregory, she is a twenty-six year old PA who has successfully worked for the Marchioness of Lionsbridge for some time now. She is the best at what she does and doesn't have a problem getting what she wants. Although her job is very demanding, she still manages to catch up with her girlfriends and go on rides on her motorcycle. It is her understanding and reserved personality that has made her very likable among her coworkers and locals. Yet, she wasn't expecting to meet sexy entrepreneur Stefan Lundgren at the Marchioness' house. Their chemistry is instantaneous from the second they met, but now they have to work together and things are about to change for the both of them. The first book pretty much sets the setting of the book and the problems that the two characters are going to face, it does end in a big shocker which had me reading the next book, Her Master's Servant, right away.
Though we see how the characters struggle to be apart in the second book, we also get to know more about Stefan's family as well. As a Swedish entrepreneur Stefan Lundgren is in third in line to inherit the state, and although he may inherit a title someday, he still manages to keep up with his company. He has traveled around the world and could pretty much get any women he wants, but Luna has proven to be someone he can't seem to forget. Her passion for her job has completely captivated him, but there are problems that not even he could fix. Now he has to find a way to get Luna back before it's too late.
In the last book, The Marchioness, the characters are put to the test when they have to face their previous problems and their pasts. There is a lot of character development throughout the trilogy, in the end we finally get to see Luna more courageous than ever. The author did a good job describing the story in detail. I loved reading their romantic scenes as well as the interactions that they have with friends and family. It really made the book that much more enjoyable to read. We get to really see when and why things happened to the characters to make them who they are today. For some reason I though this book was going to be more about their sexual chemistry and control over one another, but it's so much more than that. I would highly recommend reading this book, you will not regret it. I will most certainly be reading more from the author in the future. :)
