Without giving too much away, don’t expect your garden variety Historical story here. With just a touch of the supernatural to push Corinna and Ian in the right direction we get to see both H/h completely out of their elements, forcing them to understand the position the other is coming from. There is comedy in how they handle the changes to their lives and also a bit of poignancy as their eyes are truly opened to the person they thought they knew. Prejudices and misconceptions all fall away; leaving a relationship that has been wounded and scarred in the past but is ready for healing. I absolutely adored how their love unfolded against the improbably situation they find themselves it. It isn’t an immediate Love brought about by shared circumstances but more a second chance to correct mistakes they had both made in the past. Corinna’s independence and Ian’s personality aren’t sacrificed just to move the story towards its HEA and right up until the end those same traits could cost them everything they had gained together. I loved the supporting characters that are introduced because they are truly “supporting” for the H/h. Ian’s best friend Lord Grace or his younger brother Gregory know just what to say within the moment to either influence actions or set them in motion. Smaller moments with their widowed parents or other friends helped show just how changed Ian and Corinna became during their unusual courtship. I cannot wait to see if any of them get their own stories (and if we get the same supernatural twist to them).

This story is such a treat! Ashe is an amazing writer, clever and engaging with lovely language. So tough to find anything new in the regency historical genre, but this book is fresh and fast-paced. Both funny and touching. Highly recommend it!

Loved the story line & got a kick out of her inspirations for the book. I was never bored & Corinna's insults were very entertaining! I thought I read somewhere that this was the start of a new series, I sure hope so! I've never been disappointed in any of Katharine's books, & look forward to every new release! Keep them coming!!

This book is original, fantastic. You will fall in love with the characters. They are developed so well and they remain true to themselves. Well written and well edited, unlike so many on the market today. Thank you Ms Ashe, you did a fantastic job.

Katharine Ashe is one of my favorite authors. This is the first book in a new series. Lady Corinna is a bluestocking and Lord Ian a rake. They are neighbors and cannot stand each other. They meet at a Greek art show where Aphrodite, the Goddess of Love decides enough is enough. They wake up with the others life, now they must work together to get back. You'll be laughing out loud with the antics and situations they find themselves.

Gave 3 stars because it started off well....and then turned into freaky Friday between the 2 main characters. Couldn't take it....granted all reading is fantasy but I do not like this genre.

The story idea was good, but the execution was just OK. It went on too long and the ending took forever to happen. Ian seemed to grow and change, but Cora did not. Expected more from this book.

Loved the book, great twist of a good story, had to go back and reread to find out where she fooled me so I didn't see the twist coming!   So good I went looking for other books by Ashe and am enjoying those now.

Such a fun read!  I really enjoy Katharine Ashe's stories and this one didn't disappoint, in fact it is one of my favorites of hers. This story had a great twist to it which made it a lot more enjoyable than your everyday regency. It was lighthearted with some laugh out loud moments and there were even a couple scenes that really touched me and brought tears to my eyes. I am so glad Ms.Ashe decided to go against the norm and publish this series for readers like me to enjoy. I highly recommend this book to anyone who enjoys regency romances with a little something fun.  I am very much looking forward to the next one in this new series.

I was in sore need of a light-hearted, funny read - the further removed from any events that could happen in my life, the better, which is why historical romance is the best genre for these moods. As it turns out, My Lady, My Lord was not only the perfect historical romance, it also possesses a twist that allows it to cross into another genre - which was a delightful surprise! Lord Ian Chance is the consummate rake: fast horses, gaming hells, and beautiful women are his favourite pastimes. Aside from annoying Lady Corinna, whom he's known from childhood and whose father's estate borders his. Lady Corinna spends her time setting up gatherings of the most brilliant minds of her time, the perfect hostess, a paragon of virtue, if not the ideal of femininity what with her ideas of scientific exploration, literary analysis of the classics, and her dream of owning her very own publisher. It galls her to no end that she is positively incapable of leashing in her tongue when it comes to Ian. There is no meeting between them that does not devolve into bitter quarreling. I'm not going to give away the twist, it's a very uncommon one in HR, at least I'd never encountered it before in this genre (though I must say, it's a very popular one in fanfiction...). Suffice to say, it makes for extremely amusing reading! I really liked the fact that Corinna was 29 years old, a confirmed spinster, and yet not preoccupied with this. She'd had offers of marriage, good offers at that, and she refused them. She's not even dreaming of the ideal husband and saving herself for him. She's just content with her life. It makes for a nice change in HR. I also liked how Ian was a rake - a nice one at that, but in HR there is a tendency to have the reader discover how the rake is a completely misunderstood noble gentleman. Ian had his morals, and he followed certain rules, but he did have mistresses, and he did gamble, and he spoke plainly of such arrangements in the presence of his friends. It was nice to see these two childhood enemies coming to realise they didn't actually know each other as well as they thought, and see them gathering forces to overcome the above mentioned twist. I wish I could quote my favourite bits, but they're so spoilery!! Please take me at my word when I tell you that this book is well worth reading. If you're in the mood for a funny (and a bit racy), historical romance, with characters who behave in reasonable ways, and a lack of overblown dramatics, then this is the book for you!
