|Regency Romantic Warriors|
|Lord Lionel Armstrong, baron Loveall, later Earl of Wentworth in volume 6 is a man who knows his responsibilities as the oldest son of an earl. He is serious and reasonable. Contrary to most first-born noble young men he decides to buy his colors in the most prestigious regiment: the King's Cavalry and actually goes to war where he is badly wounded, several times.|
When he travels home he mistakes a girl who nurtures him back to health for a servant, instead to see what stares him in the face: a baron's daughter. He has himself caught and abducted when he is dressed up like a footman himself at a costumed ball to marry the girl he thinks is a servant.
He does not shun his responsibilities towards the 'servant girl' although he is glad she turns out to be an aristocratic girl. Their escape from Gretna Green is full of adventures in which he shows himself ever the responsible gentleman even when he loses his memory.
