My Fair Lord

Book Description of My Fair Lord

Arriving into English society from the drawing rooms of New York, Miss Florence Wakechild desires nothing less than the marriage her father is so desperately seeking for her. Clayton Wakechild desires nothing more than finding a suitable husband for his daughter – a husband of noble birth and title no less. No ‘new money’ here.

Frustrated with her father’s obsession with the British aristocracy, Florence comes up with a plan. If she can train an ordinary working man to behave like a viscount and fool her father, she can prove to him a title is meaningless.

It’s a straightforward plan, but the man Florence chooses is Ned Blake, a man who will open her eyes in a way she couldn’t have imagined. As Ned’s hands gently guide her across the ballroom floor, the last thing Florence expects to feel is something… real.

With his past catching up with him, Ned seizes the opportunity to lie low, if only briefly, but will the secrets he’s keeping destroy the chance of happiness he’d never imagined?

My Review of My Fair Lord

Elisabeth J. Hobbes spins a captivating tale of love, deception, and societal expectations set against the backdrop of English high society in the 19th century. The novel follows the journey of Miss Florence Wakechild, a spirited young woman determined to defy her father’s wishes of marrying into the British aristocracy.

Florence’s rebellion against her father’s obsession with titles and nobility leads her to devise a daring plan: to train an ordinary working man to pass as a viscount, proving to her father that a title is meaningless. Enter Ned Blake, a seemingly unlikely candidate chosen by Florence for his authenticity and genuine demeanor.

What unfolds is a delightful and unpredictable dance between Florence and Ned, as they navigate the intricacies of deception and genuine connection. As Ned assumes the role of a gentleman under Florence’s tutelage, their relationship deepens in unexpected ways, transcending the boundaries of class and societal expectations.

The character development in My Fair Lord is excellently done, particularly in the case of Florence and Ned. Florence’s journey from a headstrong debutante to a woman grappling with her own desires and beliefs is both compelling and relatable. Likewise, Ned’s complex past and the secrets he harbors add depth to the narrative, keeping readers engaged until the very end.

The author skillfully captures the essence of the Regency era, immersing readers in a world of lavish ballrooms, intricate social hierarchies, and forbidden romance. The descriptions are vivid, evoking a sense of time and place that enriches the overall reading experience.

At its core, this is a story about authenticity, love, and the courage to challenge societal norms. It reminds us that true happiness often lies beyond the confines of societal expectations and that love knows no boundaries.

Rating: 4 out of 5.
