[ARC Review] - My Unfair Lady

Title: My Unfair Lady
Author: Kathryne Kennedy
Genre: Historical Romance
Release Date: December 1, 2009

I received this book for review from Sourcebooks.

Summary: He created the perfect woman…

The impoverished Duke of Monchester despises the rich Americans who flock to London, seeking to buy their way into the ranks of the British peerage. So when railroad heiress Summer Wine Lee offers him a king’s ransom if he’ll teach her to become a proper lady, he’s prepared to rebuff her. But when he meets the petite beauty with the knife in her boot, it’s not her fortune he finds impossible to resist…

For the arms of another man

Frontier-bred Summer Wine Lee has no interest in winning over London society—it’s the New York blue bloods and her future mother-in-law she’s determined to impress. She knows the cost of smoothing her rough-and-tumble frontier edges will be high. But she never imagined it might cost her heart…

Thoughts: I was familiar with Kathryn Kennedy's Relics of Merlin, so when I heard she had a new book coming out I was very interested to see what it was all about. I knew I would enjoy it since it was to be set in the Victorian era. My Unfair Lady was a fun read. It was a journey of love, trust and acceptance. Beautiful written. I was captivated by the characters and story. My favorite part was how opposite Summer and Byron were, I found that very interesting. So, different but still drawn to each other.If you are fan of the play Pygmalion or the musical My Fair Lady, there is a good chance you'll enjoy this new spin on a beloved story.

Score: 4 Stars

  1. Hm why not, it does sound good and yes I like that story.
    Nice review, I truly must read a historical soon (working through my library books first, eek)

  2. Oh good, Anna, you liked this one too! I thought it was a fun read. She has another new series she's working on that sounds like it's going to be very good, historical fantasy!

    Here's a link if you didn't see this post of hers.

  3. Thanks Amy! I just checked the link. This new series does sound like it's gonna be a good one. :)

  5. Hi Anna, I read this one as well for the ROOB website and I liked it too, Byron and Summer really are complete opposites, but I liked that, I gave it 4 stars too.
    And I love Kennedy's Relics of Merlin Series!

  6. Hi!

    Really like the sound of this one - right up my alley :)

  7. Anna,

    Thanks for the review-- this one sounds like it should be good! I'll have to add it to my list. I read the first book in her Merlin series, but I've not yet had the time to buy and read her other books. I'll have to though!
