My Fair Gentleman

About the book: In 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 welfare 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 etiquette and properly introduce him into society. Jack soon learns that his challenge isn't surviving his new lifestyle but surviving the conspiracies against him—as well as keeping himself from falling madly in love with his new tutor.

My review: I LOVE Shadow Mountain's Proper Romance line! Each of the books so far have been well-written, clean and amazingly romantic. This one was no exception.

I thought that Jack was a great character, it was really fun to see life through his perspective. He is a young man who has been working on a ship for many years. He's just about ready to captain his own ship when he's sent for by his estranged grandfather who is just about to die. The old man wants to tell him that he is his new heir and that he won't be living much longer. Jack feels torn, he wants to go to sea, but he knows that the life that his being his grandfather's heir will provide for his mother and sister are miles better than the way that they've been living. It was fun to watch him go from a seaman to a gentleman. 

Ivy was probably my favorite character in this book. She is honest, witty, and simply amazing. I loved that it was her job to make Jack into a true gentleman of the ton. At times she wants to pull her hair out and at times she has to just sit and cry, but I loved her perseverance. 

And her Nana, also an amazing character. I loved that she was always there just when Ivy needed her to do something. But she pretty much allowed Ivy to make her own mistakes and do her own thing, even if she was somehow helping in the background to make everything turn out as it should.

I loved the little quotes at the beginning of each chapter from Mistress Manners. It was fun to read them and guess just what would be coming in the chapter. I have to admit that there were several times that I laughed. And I loved the way that they tie in late in the story.

The story line was fun too! I loved that it was a My Fair Lady story, but in reverse. It was really well done and there was plenty of romance, adventure, kissing, danger, kissing, and great characters to satisfy every type of reader. Make sure you pick up this great new book!

I was sent a copy of this book in exchange for an honest review.
