An Unsuitable Lady for a Lord by Cathleen Ross is an Adult Historical Romance on shelves now!
“Lord Aaron Lyle has one hell of a choice: a bankrupt dukedom, or marriage to some simpering society miss so his spendthrift father can get his hands on her huge dowry. He won’t do it. He has a reputation to maintain, and besides, he’d rather run naked through the streets of London than marry anyone at all. Surely, there must be a third option.
Then Lady Crystal Wilding walks into his life, a bluestocking, full of subversive thoughts, who hates the notion of marriage even more than he does. He is intrigued…and, suddenly, he has an idea. He invites the totally unsuitable lady home on the pretext of presenting her as a possible match…but in truth, Aaron has something far more pleasurable in mind. For her part, Lady Crystal has her own reasons for going along with his harebrained scheme.
Imagine their shock when his highly proper family loves her and starts planning the wedding. Good lord. Now what?”
If you love historical romances that push the bounds of the era, you may be captivated by this one!
We follow the two characters as they are pushing the limits, a hero who doesn’t want to settle for the girl his father wants him to marry and a heroine who tests the gender-roles in a scheming way. It’s a book that has a little bit of humor despite it not being a romcom. Their rebel ways just bring that right amount of devious, strong plot twists that create a well-rounded, cute romance.
Even though it’s not a story that completely blew me away, I give it a high 3 out of 5 stars. It was a fun historical read that will completely suck you in!
