A True Lady could have been a disaster for me. I mean there's Cristabel Stew with "sunset hair and flashing mocha eyes", and there's Magnus Titus Snow, the tall, dark and handsome aristocrat who is resolved not to fall in love and marry any time soon.

A surprisingly delightful story. Over-the-top pirates, villains and good guys, a crazy plot, including the heroine getting "married" to the same guy three times, but nevertheless - a non-stop highly enjoyable read. I'm surprised that this book is so little-known compared to other stories by the same author which I enjoyed a lot less.
