My Fair Gentleman by Nancy Campbell Allen


In this Regency twist of My Fair Lady, Jack would rather be at sea than fixing the mistakes of his grandfather, the late Earl of Stansworth. Instead, he finds that inheriting his grandfather's wealth and title—and securing the welfare of his sister and mother—means joining the ranks of high society and living with the aristocracy. Luckily, Ivy Carlisle, the granddaughter of a dear friend of Jack's late grandmother, is willing to teach him etiquette and properly introduce him into society. Jack soon learns that his challenge isn't surviving his new lifestyle but surviving the conspiracies against him—as well as keeping himself from falling madly in love with his new tutor.

In my opinion:

I'm in love with the Proper romance novels and My Fair Gentleman is one of my favorites. It is also based on a classic, My Fair Lady but has its own twist. 

The characters Nancy created were equally enjoyable and I especially liked Ivy and Jack's relationship. Jack drove me nuts in the beginning with his rebellious side but throughout the story, his softer side was shown for his sister and mother. I guess I always appreciate men who are mature and act like gentlemen. Sometimes, we must overlook the faults in others because we never know who they will become.

Jack becomes the new Earl of Stansworth and quickly needs to learn how to be polite. How will he ever learn? That is where Ivy comes in. She struggles to teach him the correct way to act. Will she be successful? Will their relationship blossom?

This story was delightful and fabulous. I definitely recommend My Fair Gentleman to anyone who loves a proper romance novel.
