A Loyal Companion

Title ~ A Loyal Companion
Author ~ Barbara Metzger
Publisher ~ Untreed Reads
Published ~ 15 May 2012
Genre ~ Historical/Romance/Humor

My Rating ~ 5 bites out of 5

Fitz and his human, Miss Sonia Randolph grew up on her father’s estate, but when her brother and his new wife come to live there and their father, after years of being a widower, decides to marry, Sonia is sent to London to stay with her grandmother, the Dowager Duchess, Lady Amelia Atterbury. And where Sonia goes, so does Fitz. The Dowager Duchess decides that it is time for Sonia to Come Out and land herself a husband, though she doesn’t think there are any eligible men who will put up with her granddaughter’s hoyden ways. So Fitz takes it upon himself to search London for a suitable mate for his beloved Sonia. Let the adventures begin!

Once again Ms. Metzger has charmed me. Well-written with a smooth flowing plot and delectable characters this humorous historical romance will entertain even the most dour reader. The beginning and ending of each chapter after Sonia acquires Fitz has the tale told from his point of view. And it’s quite interesting and, oft times amusing, to see things from a dog’s perspective, too! A delightful afternoon read it was!
