My Lady, My Lord by Katharine Ashe- Feature and Review


The Bluestocking 
Lady Corinna Mowbray has three passions: excellent books, intelligent conversation, and disdaining the libertine Earl of Chance.

The Rake 
Lord Ian Chance has three pleasures: beautiful women, fast horses, and tormenting high-and-mighty Corinna Mowbray.

Neighbors for years, they've been at each other's throats since they can remember. But when a twist of fate forces them to trade lives, how long will it be before they discover they cannot live without each other?

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

My Lady, My Lord by Katherine Ashe is a 2014 by Billet- Doux Books.

I grabbed this book when it was on sale at Amazon without reading the synopsis first. I love Katherine Ashe, so I knew I would like the book, but I was delightfully surprised by how clever this plot is, and love how the author took a tried and true trope and turned it into a charming fantasy.

Corinna is a bluestocking whose life is filled with her Salons, books and art. Ian is a notorious Rake, a man Corinna has a long history with. The two dislike each other and can’t get along for five minutes without an argument erupting.

But when their bodies are switched, each one gets a healthy lesson in humility and a grudging respect begins to grow between them when they are forced to help each other in very significant ways. Is it possible they could actually learn to like each other… maybe even stop lying to themselves about the reason they always seem to clash?

I haven’t had so much fun reading a regency period historical romance in a very long time. I literally laughed out loud a time or two, and instantly fell under the magical spell of this story. Katherine Ashe has a wonderful imagination and this story shows off her writing skill quite nicely.

The story is beautifully paced, with sticky situations handled with grace and aplomb. I loved the characters and the incredibly sharp and witty banter between them. The atmosphere is light, whimsical, and thoroughly enchanting.
