My Fair GentlemanIn this Regency twist of My Fair Lady Jack would rather be at sea than fixing the mistakes of his grandfather the late Earl of Stansworth Instead he finds that inheriting his grandfather's wealth and title and securing the wel. I love a good Regency novel and when a twist on a classic favorite is added I'm in heaven Jack is a sailor who has no interest in becoming a part of the ton but finds it important to take care of his mother and sister so he does just that Lady Ivy's job is to teach him how to properly behave in society which is not an easy task Add a dash of mystery and some swoony moments and this story is the perfect recipe for a satisfying read I also love how each chapter is headed with a bit of advice from Mistress Manners' Tips for Every day Etiuette and had to smile at many of the headings Ivy has her own issues to deal with a a big secret to keep but she's so delightful I found her voice and personality to be so witty and fun Jack seems bent on annoying her and bringing out the spitfire in her and those interactions are so sweet Jack is a handsome man one who wants to do things his way but one who must conform for good reasons He's charming in his rough ways I can't imagine living in a time when there are certain gender roles that aren't considered acceptable and enjoyed seeing the way this issue was handled in this particular story The sweet stolen moments are so tender and I learning little snippets into the secondary characters lives I would love to see a story about Sophie and even little Pug This book is a great addition to the Proper Romance Line Content mild romance; mild violencemoments of peril accidents non graphic blood etc CleanI received a copy in exchange for an honest review

Fare of his sister and mother means joining the ranks of high society and living with the aristocracy Luckily Ivy Carlisle the granddaughter of a dear friend of Jack's late grandmother is willing to teach him etiuette and prope. Jack Elliot is soon to take command of his own ship when a messenger from his estranged grandfather the Earl of Stansworth arrives with the news the old man is on his death bed and demands Jack's presence Jack's first thought is to not go but he decides to go and thumb his nose in his grandfather's face The old Earl names Jack as his heir and while Jack would love to refuse the old Earl knows Jack's sister and mother are on the brink of ruin Jack can hardly refuse what will make his mother well again and his sister the ability to enter the world of the ladies whom she has been serving as a maid Jack is bound and determined though to find a loophole in his grandfather's will and return to sea Ivy Carlise's grandmother the bosom friend of the late Countess of Stansworth enlists the aid of her favorite granddaughter to help ease Jack into Society Ivy is the best person for the job for she secretly writes an etiuette advice column for ladies and gets paid for it Something about the big raw Earl brings out the worst and the best in Ivy Ivy must be careful though to keep her emotions in check and behave with the utmost propriety or her family already under a cloud of scandal will be socially ruined Jack needs an occupation to keep him busy other than needling Ivy He thinks he can handle the ton on his own but it's so much fun to banter with Ivy instead The one thing his tutor can't give him are lessons in love What is a sailor turned Earl to doThe author calls this a take on My Fair Lady but it's similar to Georgette Heyer's The Unknown Ajax and some other copycat plots I really enjoyed the story for all it's a rehash of a plot I've read a few times before The author did a great job studying up on etiuette of the period but she seems to have missed a few legal points As far as I am aware a peer can't pick and choose his heir Usually the heir is the direct male descendant either a son grandson nephew or cousin If an Earl could choose his heir Downton Abbey wouldn't have a plot However I believe the old Earl had every legal right to cut off financial support so the premise of the plot still works Other than that the writing style is modern enough to be accessible to newcomers to the genre but doesn't sound terrible modern It sounds a little bit modern American to call one's grandmother Nana but mostly I didn't have a big problem with the language or story telling style I could do without the mystery it doesn't sound plausible It was actually a bit of a surprise to find out who the villain was It wasn't who I thought it was or at least not entirely Still the reveal isn't surprising The action of catching the villain happens off page which is a let down All that effort and poof the plot just wraps up nice and neatly I especially love the love story in this book It develops slowly as first Jack and Ivy are wary of each other and must come to trust one another Then they develop a friendship before falling in love It does drag on a bit too long though The love story features a few kisses but nothing at all than a PG movie The characters is this story are great for the most part Jack is extremely proud and stubborn but not so proud that he would ruin his mother and sister He cares for them very much and their bond is so sweet He has a temper but never loses it at Ivy and restrains himself from killing his father's cousin because Jack thinks his cousin is a scoundrel He also accepts friendship when given and knows who to trust once he gets to know someone He is a great hero Ivy is a character I think modern readers will like but also one that Jane Austen's readers would understand Ivy has a cheerful character and a loving heart but that doesn't stop her from having a bit of a temper She knows the rules though and knows she's on the brink of social ruin through no fault of her own I especially love how her Nana encourages Ivy to be the best she can be and to be on the outside the woman she is on the inside Though Ivy is young she's very mature for her age I liked her a lotI also liked Sophia She's wordly wise but still young and innocent enough to dream of romance It's nice to see a bond of female friendship form between Sophia and Ivy I like how perceptive Sophia is and how she looks after her brother when he thinks he's looking after her She has a lot of compassion and a beautiful heart to match her beautiful face Nana is the most fun grandmother She is progressive for the time women of her day had freedom and she is the woman Ivy would be if she could Nana is a big influence on Ivy because Nana is strong strong willed and can get things done Nana also knows how to catch flies with honey than vinegar though she can dish it out if needs be This story would appeal to Christian romance lovers Though it is not specifically Christian there does seem to be some Christian themes woven into the story Traditional Regency lovers will probably enjoy this too but it is mostly recommended for newcomers to the genre or those who can't get through Heyer because of her excessive use of slang I really would love a seuel featuring Sophia and Lord Anthony Blake or just Sophia and one with Anthony I'm not ready to let the characters go just yet
