Reader Review: I liked this book because I found the main characters to be very entertaining. Belle's determination to fight her attraction to Ian and Ian's determination to fight her so that she will marry him. The storyline was good, so overall it was a good read.
An inconvenient proposal.
Ian MacKay, Laird of Graenfrae, has no use for love or marriage. However, his stepfather’s will mandates that marriage is what he must have…to an Englishwoman.
A sensible man, Ian develops a list of requirements in a wife: Plain, moderately dowered, older and practical. He thinks he has found the perfect candidate in Lady Annabelle.
Labeled The Ordinary her first season, Annabelle longs for a man who will see her as beautiful and love her as her father loved her mother. When she meets Ian, she thinks she has at last found that man. Until his proposal, in which he has the audacity to list his “requirements.”
She refuses his proposal. He informs her that she will marry him at the end of the season.
The battle of wills is on.

Chapter OneAnnabelle watched the glittering crowd at Almack's and tried to ignore the leap of her heart every time a new arrival entered. She must stop acting like a silly schoolgirl. The Scottish laird most likely would not come. For the past two weeks, he had singled her out for attention whenever they attended the same affair and on one such occasion, he had told her that he no more cared for this bastion of the ton's doings than she did. Since her first Season when she had been labeled the Ordinary, Annabelle had detested the midweek soirees.

Historical romance - regency period. Storyline: In

Historical romance - regency period. Storyline: In order to inherit, a Scottish Laird must marry an English Lady within the year. He comes to London during the Season to find a wife who will meet his requirements (among them : plain, not wealthy...). There, he meets Annabelle and decides to make her his wife. Refreshing romance mostly because the heroine, for once, is not drop dead gorgeous. She's intelligent, stubborn without being too stupid to live, but considered plain. It was heart warming to see the hero, Ian, gradually fall in love (denying it, of course!) and think the heroine beautiful. In brief, the main characters have depth and are truly likeable. Fast paced, well written, the story focuses on the romance (not a lot of "physical action" and not hot...). Lucy Monroe did a good job on this one! recommended.

Good Story with enough quirks to keep it origional

Reviewer: A reader from Salt Lake City, UT US
This is a great book. I love the female lead, especially the fact that she is normal looking and not a barbie doll. Do not mistake this book by thinking it is your typical period romance, it is full of tons of quirks and twists that keep it high above mundane and typical. The characters are interesting and likable, the writing sound. A good read for a rainy day.
