Lady Emma's Campaign by Jennifer Moore
The London Season is ushered in with a thrilling flurry of invitations, gowns, and parties. But despite her status as belle of the ball, lovely socialite Emma Drake simply cannon fathom becoming entangled with any gentleman of her acquaintance. For, in truth, since childhood, her heart has belonged to Captain Sidney Fletcher, a man of the sea—and her brother's best friend.
Emma knew Sidney's directive to free the Spanish city of Cadiz from French occupation would be dangerous, but when word arrives of his capture, she is frantic. Determined to aid her brother in Sidney's rescue, she hides aboard her brother's ship and sets a course to Spain. But the realities of war are a far cry from the drawing rooms of London, and Emma finds the man she loves a mere shadow of his former self. When a series of events leaves them trapped together behind enemy lines, Emma and Sidney must embark on a journey fraught with danger—from a bloody hunt for Spanish treasure to the battlefields of war-torn Spain, new threats lurk around every turn. As their flight becomes increasingly perilous, Sidney and Emma must trust each other with their lives—but can they trust each other with their hearts?
What an excellent book! I didn't realize before I started reading Lady Emma's Campaign that this is a sequel to Becoming Lady Lockwood. It took me several pages to place everyone since it'd been awhile since I'd read the first book, but once I did I was excited to read more about Sidney (one of my favorite characters from Becoming Lady Lockwood).
I loved how Emma fell in love with Sidney, her older brother's friend, when she was young, and held onto that love for years. She didn't know if he might return her feelings, or even thought of her, but no one else compared to him.
If you have a lot to accomplish, you might want to hold off starting Lady Emma's Campaign. Once I started, I didn't want to put it down. The adventures were intense, and were a great way to develop each character.
This book can be read as a standalone, but I think it was even better having the character background gained from Becoming Lady Lockwood. Either way you choose to read it, it is a clean and entertaining read that I'd recommend, and one that I will read again.
