I have two words for this book. Utterly delightful. Seriously, I adored not only our heroine, but our hero too. Let me just tell you Ellie Vyne if a mess. She can't seem to walk across the front yard without dirtying her person or her dress. She might be described as plain, but our girl has a sharp mind. *woot woot* Lets hear it for female protagonists with brain cells! She puts them to good use too. On occasion she masquerades as the dashing Count de Bonneville to fleece the good gentlemen of the society out of their money. Is she doing this because she's greedy? No. She's using her wits to make money on the sly to pay for her sister's two seasons of debut in society to meet husbands, then to help take care of her stepfather and the house that he loves which is falling apart around him. So what's Ellie's problem? The rakish James Hartley who has a way of rubbing her the wrong way.


James Hartley is being pressured to settle down with a wife from his grand-mama. He's also being chased by all of the women who want to use him for his bed sports. The thing is, this predicament is all his own fault. However, no one seems to notice that he's trying to change. He wants to settle down, and he wants the mysterious woman dressed as Marie Antoinette he met in a garden at a party where he was thoroughly pickled. Of course, while searching for his mysterious Marie he has to chase down that dastardly Count de Bonneville who has possession of some diamonds that belong to his family, from whom he received from one of James' former bed mates in payment for her gambling debts. Instead of finding the Count when he tracks his movements down to an inn, he finds the disastrous Miss Vyne.

I'm picky about my historicals, but this book was so cute, had an awesome sense of humor, and delightful characters that made it a total pick me up for the past two days. I'd say Jayne Fresina's book is highly recommended and give it a four and half wine glass toast of brandy in salute. Please note, it deserves brandy because Miss Vyne loves it so.

Interesting premise, likeable heroine, and enjoyable set-up. But, I lost interest as the story progressed. The story seemed to run out of steam, but the author kept writing.

    Not for me

    Thanks but no thanks on this free Friday offering. I will check back again next week. Have a nice day. Oh, and I was not paid or gifted for this review, therefore, I felt no need to be a plot spoiler. Hysterical bodice rippers are not for me.

    This is the first Jayne Frisian book I have read. She has the most quirky, hilarious and unique characters in her story like Lady Mercy, Grieves, Smallwick, and many others. Ellie does for others and gets herself in trouble in the process. She masquerades as a French Count for money to help her 2 half sisters and also to pay her step father's many bills. James is a rich man who shows the world that he all shine and no depth. He plays fast and loose with woman but also regrets that he lost his son, that he didn't know he had, in childbirth. Ellie and James have know each other since Ellie drew a ink mustache on his face when she was 10. They have a HATE relationship. A very drunk James meets a stunning woman who kisses him and he wants her above all others. The only problem is that it was a masquerade and he doesn't know who she is. Well it was Miss Ellie Vine and she is now in a love hate relationship with him. James goes after the Count for his family diamonds that his former paramour lost. He discovers Ellie in the count's room and thinks she is the count's paramour. So begins their wild adventure to Sydney Dovedale. They pick up many hilarious characters on the way. My favorite is Lady Mercy. Lady Mercy needs a swift spanking or kick up her bootie. This book does have some periods in which the story just off track. It has many hilarious points so I give this book 3 fingers up and 7 toes.
