    O.K. read but a bit of a letdown

    After reading the blurb for this book I was greatly intrigued. I thought that this sounded like a very clever and emotional romance. After reading it though I admit to feeling a bit let down. I did feel that the story delivered as promised. It was how some things played out that bugged me. As for the highs: I really liked Lucy, the story concept had a fun feel to it and the sort of fairy tale air to Lucy's history had great appeal for me. As for the lows: Henry. I wanted to like him. I truly did. But in my opinion he was no hero. I hated that the man you were supposed to want Lucy to be with never had her back. Not only was he romantic interest, he was supposed to be her friend! Still, if this doesn't bother you, this was not a bad read. I am choosing to post a sincere review.

    Witty and Snappy

    A witty and snappy read. From the first moment Lucy and Henry meet as children they have used words as sword play. When they meet as adults they have only sharpened their skills. The story is fast paced as they have a limited time to get Lucy prepared to face society. Henry as the unenviable task of being her tutor. With the mean girls and other roadblocks in their way navigating becomes treacherous. There is also the feelings they have for each other that they are both desperately trying to deny. It takes a little faith to reach for that happy ending.

    Delightful

    A heroine and hero that meet as children and then years later, she as a thief and he with bow street. Perfect for a love match you say? A delightful, fast paced tale that brings these two together in a most unique say. Their quick banter and situation made for an exciting read to see how it would all turn out. This is the second book I have read by this author and I really enjoyed it!

    My Musings

    Thanks go to the publisher and Net-Galley for the complimentary copy of Everything a Lady is Not by Sawyer North for the purpose of reading and reviewing by publication. My opinions are my own, and no one has influenced them. Everything a Lady is Not is a lovely Regency romance that took me to Regency London and the countryside with a new and refreshing twist. The pacing engaged me from the first page and kept me enthralled until the last. Lucy Lockett, AKA Lady Margaret, is a delightful heroine, and one I became vested in from my first introduction. Her heartbreaking back story touched me and had me wanting her to find her way in the new world she finds herself thrown into with any warning. Mr. North manages to write of her struggle with the emotions a woman would feel when facing an environment so different than what one has experienced in the past. That’s somewhat unexpected since it’s not common for a man to write romance. Henry Beaumont is a dashing hero with all the characteristics I enjoy most in Regency romance. I loved his willingness to help Lucy learn to navigate the haute ton. I enjoyed his confusion when he develops feelings for Lucy and the pain of believing he must help her find a husband when he wants her for his own. The romance between the couple is lovely and as a sweetness to it. There’s plenty of the sexual tension between them, an aspect of historical romance I love. Unlike most romances, I feared there might be no happy ending for them since I couldn’t imagine how it could happen. Kudos to Mr. North for building that fear. It added greatly to my enjoyment! If you like historical romance set in the Regency era with endearing characters and a unique plot, then you will enjoy Everything a Lady is Not as much as I did. This is the first book I’ve read by Mr. North. I plan to go back and read the his first one. Happy reading!
