Hmm. Just setting up the premise takes an awful lot of time. Suffice it to say that the heroine decides to pose as English nobility in order to secure guardianship of the child of a friend who's died, and to accomplish that, she gives her savings to a man she met first playing poker in a cheap tavern and later in the house of her wealthy employers being introduced as an English duke.

There's a bit of a My Fair Lady flavor, though she's the one who instigates the transformation, and a nice twist that I initially suspected, then decided I was wrong.

Entertaining, and different enough to make it worth the read.

I could not put this book down. The fact that it doesn't focus solely on the romance aspect, but different relationships of love is great. You will fall in love with Lana and little Colin's storyline as well as Jesse and Lana's storyline. First book in a while that I read in a day, because I didn't want to stop reading.

Ruth Ryan Langan is known as a solid choice for readers looking for a clean, story driven romance, and this book is no exception. This dramatic, heart tugging love story is part "Pretty Woman" (without the prostitution) and "My Fair Lady". We follow the story of Lana, an young Irish woman who was ran away from an orphanage with her friend Siobahn to escape abuse and neglect. The two friends make their way to America and tragic events turn their lives upside down. It was nice to read about a romance where at least one of the leads is a "real" person, who struggles to just live and whose life is not dominated by parties, popularity and extravagance.

This book is a great choice for those readers looking for a "clean" romance as the few love scenes are very tastefully done.
Highly recommended 5 stars.

This was my first book by this author so I had no expectations. I was just interested in reading something from that time period set in America and there are few options out there. As I read, the book kept getting better and better. It started with a lot of back-story that I was anxious to get through, but that was very important to the plot development. I don't know quite how she did it, but more so than most books/authors, I believed in the feelings of these characters and their motivations for the choices they made. What I liked best was that the sex was about feelings, not relieving sexual tension. I didn't realized how much I enjoyed the book until I was done with it and then kept going back to re-read specific scenes.

A fun read. Sort of a Cinderella story with a few twists. When I read I want the book to draw me in and take all other thoughts away. The first two pages of the book did that.

Format: Mass Market Paperback
Typical historical romance with a predictable outcome and a My Fair Lady twist. Too much repetition made it a bit monotonous at times.
