Lady of Fortune is a classic story of one woman’s perseverance and strength in the face of insurmountable odds in the wake of the French Revolution.
A countess turned servant …
Forced to escape the French Revolution, resilient young Comtesse Marie-Christine D'Estelle flees to London. But when she finds herself unexpectedly penniless, Christa hides her aristocratic background to become a lady's maid. … Until rebuffing advances from both her tyrannical mistress’s husband and her lover gets Christa cast into the street—directly into a hero’s arms …
A Royal Navy commander …
After a long absence, Captain Lord Alexander Kingsley has returned to England on medical leave. Now head of his family, he must take charge of his younger siblings. He feels a special duty to his sister Annabelle, a shy debutante in need of a maid. So Alex is delighted to discover that the intriguing, outspoken, and lovely young woman who serendipitously landed in his arms is in need of just such a position …
The heart of a household …
With her warmth, charm, and surprisingly refined intellect, Christa soon wins the hearts of all the Kingsleys—especially Alex. And while their mutual attraction deepens to something more, the gap in their social stations seems an impossible obstacle. Only when Alex and Annabelle become the targets of fortune hunters, will the truth about Christa have a chance to be revealed. But will it mean a chance for true love to triumph?

I liked the characters and cheered their adventures and misadventures. Christa's feisty spirit kept the comedy of errors anchored. the story was cleverly and engaging written and I laughed at how the tangled web was resolved.
I will certainly read more books by this author.
I had a hard time liking the heroine who was an expert on everything. Lady's maid? Sure! She could whip up hairstyles, apply cosmetics, deal with the garments and so on. It's just too over the top. She is literally thrown out of her first assignment straight into the arms of the hero, Alex, who needs someone to help his sister. Lots of contrived conveniences. Most of the other characters are likeable and the basic story was enjoyable.
It always gets my goat when a character (Alex) becomes injured (and our heroine sews him up) manages, whilst in a fevered state, to feel well enough to engage in sex and then is miraculously better. Then comes the misunderstanding. The contrivances in this scene were many. Still, there is a HEA. I would likely read Charles and Annabelle's story.
