Miss Bianca Mansfield is ready for her debut. If only her older sister didn't insist on marrying first. She's doomed to wait to find love. Until she meets … him.

For Lucian Dorlingsley, Viscount Asquith, recently returned from an extended tour abroad, it is love at first sight. He's determined to meet Bianca, even if it means masquerading as a tutor to her young half-brother.

Soon Bianca is torn between love and duty and about to make a desperate decision. Can Lucian calm her fury over his betrayal when he reveals that he's not nearly as improper a match as he seems? And will they ever be able to find a match for her older sister to turn this masquerade into wedded bliss?

My Review:

Intro Babble: I must preface this review as I do every book with any sort of basis in Shakespeare with a warning. I don't like him. At all. He is one of the few that I muddled through in English class. Taming of the Shrew is one of the exceptions. I identified with Kate in a big bad way.


Heroine: Bianca-I normally have such trouble with Bianca. She just comes off as wishy-washy and boring. But not here. She is still Bianca in essence but more active and lively. She has personality and I am so very thankful for that because I could not have gotten through even a 100 page novella with Shakespeare's Bianca.

Hero: Lucien-I actually had a bit of trouble with him. He fell kind of flat for me because he just came across to me as a dude with a crush. Towards the middle he did start to grow on me in an “you're an adorable puppy boy” kind of way.

Chemistry-I did have a bit of trouble with Lucien on his own but paired with Bianca, they were perfect. They were the perfect complement to each other. They were both unassuming characters and their chemistry is the quiet sort.

Chemistry Rating: 

Ending Babble: I really did enjoy this novella. I breezed through it during a car ride and I found it so very enjoyable. I did find myself anticipating Kate's story though. She is my favorite character in Taming of the Shrew and, as much as I liked Bianca's story, Kate promises more fireworks.
