Lady Edwina Bollash is a talented linguist, but she may have taken on more than she can handle when she accepts the challenge of transforming handsome commoner Mick Tremore into a gentleman. She only has six weeks to accomplish the daunting task, but Mick proves to be a quick study. Unfortunately for Edwina, Mick is also utterly irresistible. Edwina soon finds herself loving everything about the brash charmer whose approach to life is so less restrictive than her own. But she's a lady and he's a commoner--or is he? And Lady Edwina can't possibly have a future with this handsome, impossible man--or can she?

Oh what a Hero Mick is. *sigh.
A rat-catcher. I did not know how that would work. But did it ever work for me.
I even liked the end, but I get why some had issues. Read more
