I read this book because I was looking for a nice culture clash romantic comedy. The title, however, is deceptive: the "ordinary lady" is not, in fact, a commoner who shacks up with the titular Lord, but rather a wealthy Lady herself—simply one who’s run away from home and is working at the cafe on the Lord’s estate. So I guess the title’s true in fact if not in spirit. But the resulting book is utterly boring to me, and frankly, I can’t believe that romance readers or Harlequin or whatever else ...more

Surprisingly funny

No ordinary Lady but a rebellious one. He is a newly minted Lord wanting respect, she a Lady not wanting the title. Enter a special fairy princess or a daughter from the h rebellious phase and instant hilarity. The daughter acts make re of a Lady than the mother but is very special. Great, fun read that had me laughing out loud.

Rebel without a cause heroine and anachronistic class clash plot. And what's with these titles?

This is a delightful story and such a fun read from author, Fiona Harper.

English Lord, Ordinary Lady contains everything that I love about series romance – great characters, laugh-out-loud humour, with a twist of emotional angst.

Another feel-good read that’s a keeper and Fiona Harper joins my list of fave Harlequin Mills & Boon Romance authors.

This book ain't happening for me. It's too dull. The male character has potential but the plot made him quite flat. The whole story was uneventful and I think the only conflict in this is the female character dyeing her hair red.

How the hell is that a big deal?

So, no. Not recommending.

Awful title, good writing. Picture Gilmore Girls in England, if Lorelai had hooked up with a less curmudgeonly Luke when Rory was still a little kid. I liked the characters a lot and thought it was a fun little story.

A cute, fun read. I don't usually read this line, though, and it's super-short, so I was left wanting many more chapters at the end.

Very good book, predictable as romances go but I enjoyed the change from fantasy.
Silly romance. Trash for when you need to give your brain a rest. Good at its job
