Review: My Unfair Lady by Kathryne Kennedy

44451469From the back of the book:

He Created The Perfect Woman…

The impoverished Duke of Monchester despises the ruck 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 book, 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 out her rough-and-tumble frontier edges will be high. but she never imagined it might cost her heart…

I love My Fair Lady, so I was excited to read this book. I can say that it lived up to my expectations in all but one respect. I couldn’t stand how many times the author mentioned that the Duke was short. I understood it the first time, but it seems to be mentioned on every other page. (At least that’s what it felt like to me*). I don’t normally care if the hero is tall or short, but I only need to be told once. Really the Duke’s height had nothing to do with the story, except a few instances where he was surrounded by people taller than him. I just kept getting thrown out of the story every time it was mentioned. Other than that it is a delightful story. The Duke and Summer are perfect for each other, but don’t want to see it. The Duke hates American women and Summer has her heart set on another. The story moves fast and there isn’t any lagging between scenes. So, a pretty much perfect romance (except for the height announcements).

*I will say that the height thing is just me. A friend also read the book and didn’t notice it as much as I did.*

the book girl gives MY UNFAIR LADY a 4/5!
