Oh I looved this book so much A very original premise and a refreshing break from the traditional spinsterrake Lots of love and romance too and one of the best heroes ever At first I was like this guy Mick is a dirty rat catcher I hate rats and mice than anything I can handle spiders and snakes but freak out over rodents and this is never going to work for me why am I reading this book And Winnie is another tall almost 30 spinster who is also a linguist and teaches people how to present better in society She was originally very wealthy but after her father died her second cousin once removed Xavier inherited her father s title as Duke and all his wealthlands She s not living in fashionable society or associated with former friends because of embarrassment over her changed lifestyle since Xavier took everything But she enjoys her teaching and is good at what she doesIMO Mick had the bigger role in this story and I felt like I really got to know and understand him He was the most likeable hero with no hangups or issues so refreshing not tortured holding onto grudges or behaving ruthlessly or aggressively toward heroine or others He was just a happy person working hard with his job in order to send money home to his siblings in Cornwall story takes place in London and has a great outlook on life Here s a peek into his thinking Sometimes Mick dreamed of a fancy life Money and legs He would have been embarrassed to tell anyone how common minded his ambitions were He always felt guilty doing it Disloyal or something He was a workingman A good solid man of the working class He didn t think fancy fellows were happier than him Didn t think they were nicer to their families or that God gave them an easier time of it They still get sick or lame or died just like everyone else Winnie on the other hand has been through some tough times and is trying to get by the best she can Her parents didn t think well of her and she doesn t think much of herself as a result Mick compliments her to which she replies Mr Tre I am a gangly plain woman with speckled skin who wears glasses on a nose that looks like an eagles I m taller than any man I knowExcept you But little does she know Mick really likes her and has the hots for her legs yes her legs he s a major leg man and she has really looong legs So how did this unlikely couple wind up together It starts out as part of a wager can she change Mick into a viscount in six weeks He speaks with a very heavy accent and she has to work with him hours and hours every day to improve his pronunciation In this time of course there s a growing attraction between them And there are several hysterically funny scenes Mick s first bath their first kiss their first fight singing in the garden I did drills today la la that was too hard and my tongue wouldn t do rightI hope tomorrow is easier and I get something right I was laughing so hard I was scared I d wake everyone up in my house And their first deal where Mick set the terms for his mustache to be shaved was one of the best scenes in the book This author writes in such a way that it s not sexually graphic but very hot can t explain it but it s true I think my favorite part was when Mick bought Winnie a birthday present this was so beautifully described and showed how much Mick loved her which he had shown in many other ways but his gift was perfect After he gives it to her he says It s really beautiful I ve outdone myself I ll never pick anything beautiful than thisExcept you Mick found Winnie beautiful and did everything to try to assure her of his love for her even though they both thought the relationship was doomed due to their class differences I loved the way they resolved their problems and how open their communication was Honestly this may be the best matched couple I ve ever had the pleasure to read about While they both had their faults for the most part they dealt with things very maturely Even though the ending was not exactly what I would have wanted view spoiler I would have been just as happy if they went to the country and Mick got employment there and they lived happily ever after not as nobility hide spoiler

So Judith Ivory s been sitting on my to read list no not the Goodreads one the one in my head for a while I ve been directed to her writing uite a few times Read Beast Read Indiscretion Read The Proposition Judith Ivory ROCKS And along that lineI was understandably excited Would this be the second Lord of Scoundrels My answer NoIt was a no that was growing from the beginning before I even started reading the actual book because I skimmed through all of Ivory s popular novels Beast Indiscretion Black Silk just to get a feel of things you know and I began to feel uneasy I didn t like her plot summariesideas or her writing style but well The Proposition was the plot I was most comfortable with so I started there Very obviously it was My Fair Ladyesue of course but I actually enjoy the musical its a classic I wanted to see where she went with this plus she gender swapped the characters should be fun heyNo It was ahow shall I put it Lukewarm read at times chilly That may sound odd to you but it really felt like that bland unexciting unoriginal uncomfortable and also lukewarm in the chemistry between the two leads something I consider to be of utmost importance in a contemporary regency novel It certainly didn t have any of the charm or finesse of the original musical In fact Ivory fails to incorporate any of the elements that made the musical successful there was no wit no sarcasm no meaningful relationships between characters and worse of all no humor Instead we plod through repetitive stifling scenes the hero and the heroine engage in meaningless eye humping under guise of teaching him to become a fake Viscount Some long legs are scandalously exposed they wax lyrical over buttocks and flirt with each other The heroine plays coy shy virgin the rakish and most manly hero thinks she is the most speshul snowflake ever and tries to convince her to have sexytimes because come on he knows she wants it she just has to admit it Yes I do realize that this is the general gist of most contemporary regencies but there s a difference The two leads have some of the blandest chemistry I ve readever I think its because Ivory has a tendency to tell rather than show the relationship developing The hero s got hair on his chest the heroine has rippling golden hair yadda yadda yadda Even with things beyond the initial physical attraction she tells the hero apparently has endless daily lessons in being a gentleman but we never see much of that Oh no instead we are treated to the breakfast and supper seduction routines UghThat s fine though I can deal with all that prosy characterization because I expect it to some degree Its a smuttyregency after all But no the novel has bigger problems The plot for one thing In a nutshell Bad I suppose Ivory wanted to focus on developing the main relationship but still you have to have some plot right Seems not There were no layers twists conflicts I knew exactly where the plot was going in a bad way There were so many interesting avenues left undiscovered classism trade amongst the gentry sexism discrimination pride family obligations but these things were blatantly ignored leaving the novel with no substance whatsoever and thus robbing the depth from the characters I hate it when characters have no depth because then they become meaningless there s nothing to admire to inspire to relate to to learn from so you can imagine how I felt about the characters in this novel I have many bones to pick with the characterization of the hero and the heroine as well You know I thought I would like them at the beginning of the novel They had their uirks the hero was an original I was interested to see where they would go but then it all went down the drain The heroine became intolerable she alternated wildly between sullen and playing virginal hard to get Plus there are some very skewered ideas of feminism in some parts of the novel yes you can certainly like feeling sexy I agree its a powerful thing that all females have a right to feel but the novel starts toeing the line pretty uickly then steps right over it and does a can can over its remains especially considering its setting ESPECIALLY THE SETTING Its supposed to be a historical novelright Neither do I like how she blows hot and cold with the hero or how she treats him with a very very odd mix of ooh kiss me now you manly hunky man with sexy accent and you poor weirdly smart working class ratcatcher Also the hero turned into some sort of sexistdoormat Yes I kid you not a sexist doormat He condescends to the heroine and assumes what she wants BUT ALSO sacrifices his identity and his job to be closer to the heroine not even literally closer to her he just wants to be closer to her world is what I m getting from this He sells his beloved pets the things that MAKE UP HIS JOB AND HIS LIVING to buy the heroine a dress A PRETTY PRINCESS SNOWFLAKE DRESSSay it with me What a very odd mishmash of characteristics hey If a guy that I liked got rid of all the things that were important to him just to buy me a sparkly dress I d be alarmed not impressed or touched I don t need anybody to go sacrificing things for me and not surely not for an inconseuential thing like a pretty dressI also have some beef with the ending It is BAD BAD What little conflict that existed was solved too easily like it didn t even matter in the first place It is absurd and frustrating a big deus ex machina that ties everything up in a neat bow and kills all the baddies view spoilerThe hero is actually the lost heir to the Dukedom The old Duke dies Heroine gets married with no scandal whatsoever The two twats who started everything are ignored hide spoiler
