226. My Unfair Lady by Kathryne Kennedy...

December 14, 2009
my unfair ladyAbout the book:
He created the perfect woman...
The impoverished Duke of Monchester despises the rich Americans who flock to London, seeking to buy their way into the ranks of the British peerage. So when railroad heiress Summer Wine Lee offers him a king's ransom if he'll teach her to become a proper lady, he's prepared to rebuff her. But when he meets the petite beauty with the knife in her boot, it's not her fortune he finds impossible to resist...

For the arms of another man
Frontier-bred Summer Wine Lee has no interest in winning over London society--it's the New York bluebloods and her future mother-in-law she's determined to impress. She knows the cost of smoothing her rough-and-tumble frontier edges will be high. But she never imagined it might cost her heart...

drey's thoughts:
I put my hand in the air for this one based solely on the title. I love My Fair Lady--the movie with Rex Harrison and Audrey Hepburn. So what else was I going to do with another Pygmalion-like story? Read it, of course.

Summer is like a cool breeze blowing off the ocean into the stuffy lives of the British peerage. She's trying to improve herself--which I have absolutely no problems with--for the family of the man she hopes to marry--which I have lots of problems with.

My Unfair Lady is a charming story about a girl who's trying to fit society's expectations so she can marry the man she wants, and the man who tries to help her, but eventually shows her that she's great just the way she is. Perfect for an evening in.
