Cedric, her cousin, thinks she's an embarrassment to their extended family and decides to embark on the impossible task of reformation. In doing so, he engages a man known for his untainted moral character and respectability among his peers. Albert Beckett eagerly accepts the quest to reform Charlotte, feeling it his moral duty. Charlotte, on the other hand, finds Albert to be a pompous aristocrat, who she spitefully decides to corrupt as he attempts to transform her character.

A delightful outcome awaits them both.

Lady Charlotte has never been one to be shy and demure. But she is honest, loyal and caring. She was widowed about 6 months ago but didn't wear her widow's weeds long. In public, she prefers to wear off the shoulder gowns that "show her assets". Many people adore her but there are those that are aghast at her improper behavior. Lady Charlotte's cousin, Cedric, loves her dearly but would like her to be a little more proper. He comes up with a plan and makes a contest between Charlotte and a man, Lord Albert. Lord Albert is a bit of a prig. He is boring and predictable and follows the rules of society to a tee. Cedric makes a contest between the two that they will try to reform each other. The one who succeeds at changing the other will win. Bets are even taken at the gentleman's club as to which one will be the winner. As Charlotte and Albert go to different events that of each other's choosing they find that they are both stubborn. They are exposed to things outside of their comfort zone. Albert learns that he has little compassion and understanding for anyone outside of his class. Charlotte seems to be very fun loving and kind. Who will be the winner? This story was ok. I agree with other readers that the ending seemed rushed.

Lady Charlotte is a beautiful, spirited, scandalous widow and her family feels that she must be taken in hand. Her cousin Cedric feels that Lord Beckett a strict moralist is the very one to teach her how to behave. Charlotte insists that she should have a chance to reform Albert also known as a pompous ass. The bets go on in a gentleman's club as to who will win. Charlotte takes Albert to a few of her favorite places ,he is scandalized but goes. Underneath the reputation for doing as she pleases is an honest ,tender heart for the people around her. On a trip to meet his family as a test, Albert realizes that he loves her but when she spurns him, he wants to win her back but being overly pompous and rude gets him smacked in the jaw.. Will Albert get over himself and win Charlotte or remain steadfast in his ideal of what a woman should be? I adored this book. The heroine made the hero work on himself instead of falling into his arms. I received this book from Net Galley for an honest review and no compensation otherwise.

Reviewed by Jack Magnus for Readers' Favorite Lady Charlotte: Ladies of Disgrace is an historical romance written by Vicki Hopkins. Lady Charlotte was simply not interested in emulating the behavior expected of women of her class. She was not going to play the submissive, quiet and modest woman of good breeding. It simply wasn’t in her nature or in her upbringing. Her mother and father were unconventional spirits, and her mother had been her father’s mistress before becoming his wife. They instilled in their daughter an awareness of others outside of their privileged class. Charlotte’s cousin, Cedric, was determined to teach her how to function in polite society, and he knew just the man to help him with this task. Albert Beckett’s chiseled features and manly good looks were breathtaking, but Charlotte was immediately repulsed by his arrogant and overbearing mannerisms. Each of them was determined to win Cedric’s challenge to see who would dominate the other, and Cedric’s companions wagered heavily on their predicted favorite. Vicki Hopkins’s historical romance novel, Lady Charlotte: Ladies of Disgrace is an entertaining tale about a liberated young widow who doesn’t suffer fools gladly, even when they are drop-dead gorgeous. The author’s heroine is a grand character whose ability to spot hypocrisy and impatience with the classism of well-to-do society is a breath of fresh air. Her cousin’s challenge, in the person of the insufferable Albert, makes for a sparkling comedy of manners as the two spar, draw blood, and find themselves desperately trying not to fall in love. Hopkins’s plot is finely honed, and her writing style is smooth and assured. Lady Charlotte: Ladies of Disgrace is most highly recommended.
