Another solid story from Regency Author Donna Simpson. Unlike most Regencies set in the opulence and glittering ballrooms of Regency England, in Lady Savage the story is set in Jamica but mostly on a primitive Island that a dozen genteel English find themselves on after their ship is commandered by the Americans. The heroine, Savina, is a forward thinking woman who unfortunately finds herself pressured into a betrothal with a very old fashioned, arrogant Earl. While on their deserted Island, Savina realizes the error in choosing the Earl as well as her newfound feelings of affection and respect for the Earl's secretary, Anthony.
The story is fast paced and the groups trials to survive on the island are very much "Survivor-Regency era". Lady Savage is a good choice for those who are sick of Alpha males as Anthony is very much a calm, reasonable and clever "beta male".
The love scenes are there, but tame.
All in all, a quick, good book. 4 stars.
The lady is traveling from Jamaica to England to unite with her intended..a storm blows the ship off course and they become marooned on an island..she, her father, her fiance, and his secretary and others..survival means more than high fashion..the secretary is resourceful and has an elemental strength she finds attractive..in England it could never happen...her is a different story..
