This was a fairly typical historical romance with a fun paranormal twist thrown in to spice the story up a bit. I think it worked well as this turned out to be an enjoyable enough read.

It was a typical enemies to lovers style story with long term bickering neighbours Lady Corinna Mowbray and Lord Ian Chance getting the chance to see the other in a new light via a slight paranormal twist. The story was quite fun as both characters proved likeable enough despite their flaws. I actually quite like

Oh this was a delight to read!!!!

This describes very well how Ian felt towards Corinna!

Not that Corinna felt differently towards Ian! (Only Ian didn’t have pigtails! LOL)

They hate each other. Every time they meet they try to outsmart each other. Everybody knows that they can’t stand each other.

So there comes a twist of fate! (or Aphrodite…)

And that’s how everything started!

Wonderfully done! It made true the saying that until you’ve lived in the other person skin you cannot understand it!

“Oh,” she breathed. “Yes.”...
“Corinna, this is only tonight.” His voice was rough, delectably close and deep.
“Yes, yes, of course.” Her words hitched high. Pleasure surged inside her, reaching, stretching, dangerous, the friction of clothing and heat overpowering.
He kissed her neck, thrusting her harder against the wall, onto her toes. “A single night.”

And with that, I shall DNF this. I'm sorry, but I could hardly call a guy who'd take the heroine's virginity without any intention of ma

So this was a fun and unexpected twist


And it sucked me in. No, I did not expect it. No I did not read the description or anyone else's reviews until after the big reveal.

Setting / Time / Genre: Regency business here

Length: 317 pages

Series: Yea

Sexy times: A few. Nothing terribly OTT. I think they get busy like two times.

Plan on reading more by the author: Exploring my options. I understand this was her freshman effort and was a self pub hence some of the issues I experienced but I want to read
I've given this a B at AAR, so 4 stars.

I have to start this review by saying that, enjoyable though this book is, it’s definitely not one for you if you insist upon a certain amount of realism or historical accuracy in your reading. The story is, in essence, an enemies-to-lovers one, but the plot device Ms. Ashe has chosen to use in order to bring the hero and heroine to a closer understanding of each other is something I’ve never read in an historical romance before and which has its roots firm

This was such a pleasure to read!

A captivating historical romance with an unexpected twist _ which of course I am not going to reveal! Because ~surprise!~ _ that had me turning the pages as fast as I could!

Unfortunately, life, and unexpected troll activity kept getting in the way of my reading time!

Loved it so much! Hero's reaction to waking up as a girl was wonderfully written. And the scene where the heroine (who is actually a man at that point) starts to cry in public, and the hero's subsequent reaction, was hilarious! An absolute delight! Lovely - The story and the writing style!

One little problem, I think if the love scenes could be skipped, or maybe postponed after the marriage, it would have been stronger and more wonderful to read. Set in a very rigid era, sex before marriage was n

In My Lady, My Lord, the first in what I hear may be a new series (although don't quote me on that, I could be engaging in a touch of wishful thinking!), Ashe tells the story of Corinna Mowbray, a self-confessed bluestocking who is fiercely intelligent and beautiful.

This is a work Ashe self published and I loved it. It has a paranormal element in it, but the rest of the story is a typical regency so this tale is unique in its lack of conformity to any of the existing genres. It truly was a historical romance with a twist and I will be buying more from this series.

Now, because this story is self-published, it did lack the polish of her works with Avon. For example, some of the titles for the aristocracy were not correct (i.e., it should have been Baron Grace

A historical with neighbors that can't stand each other?!?!?

My Lady, My Lord by Katherine Ashe is a 2014 by Billet- Doux Books.

I grabbed this book when it was on sale at Amazon without reading the synopsis first. I love Katherine Ashe, so I knew I would like the book, but I was delightfully surprised by how clever this plot is, and love how the author took a tried and true trope and turned it into a charming fantasy.

I picked this title up on impulse through the Audible Romance Package and found it to be highly entertaining. I do so love when an unrepentant rake falls for a feisty spinster but even more so when the story is so uniquely clever. The twist is admittedly a little far-fetched, but since it enables the characters to see sides of the other that they wouldn't have otherwise known, I can overlook it. Especially as the twist lent itself to some hilarity in the process. I'm definitely looking forward t ...more

This historical romance would’ve been a standard romantic fare if not for a slight paranormal twist, which made the story utterly original. The heroes, Corinna and Ian, are opposites in every way. She is an educated, sharp-tongued bluestocking. He is a horse- and women-loving hedonist. Both are rich, the lucky bastards. Their families’ estates in England neighbor each other, and since childhood, they quarreled bitterly whenever they met.
One day, they met at a Greek art show, and the statue of t
This was an enjoyable twist on the enemies-to-lovers storyline. We get to see both H/h completely out of their elements, forcing them to understand the position the other is coming from. Without giving too much away, don’t expect your garden variety Historical story here. We get just a touch of the supernatural to push Corinna and Ian in the right direction. 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 ...more

My Lady, My Lord, is a new release from Katharine Ashe. Now I can't believe I have had this book on my Nook for months and I am just now getting to it. But this author keeps winning me over, and I knew I had to try this one out. This story I think, is part of a series, but have no idea what it is called and what the series is about...yet. Or it could be a single title. I wouldn't mind seeing this turned into a series though. This story was very unique, especially with it being a Regency romance. ...more

Oh there is a twist alright.

I don't think revealing the twist would be a spoiler because I figured out what the twist would be by reading the blurb. It was rather obvious. But I will refrain from discussing it in case it would spoil the story for anyone. Suffice it to say that it was supernatural.

A 200 page long supernatural twist. The romance did not start until the last 1/3.

I like the way Ashe told the story, that is why I was able to finish it. I think this means I can probably read her ot

This is one of the most charming, clever, intelligent, and entertaining romances I have read this year. Set in Regency England, it spins a unique and original historical twist on the modern story, Freaky Friday.

Lady Corinna (Cora) Mowbray and Ian, the Earl of Chance, can’t stand each other. They are childhood neighbors and nemeses who have baited and hurt each other over a span of twenty plus years, despite the fact that their families are old friends.

I loved this first book in Katherine Ashe’s Twist series. What a charming, creative, funny and entertaining story!

Corinna had an unconventional upbringing by Regency standards. Her father actively supported her intellectual pursuits and,instead of attending balls, she attended lectures and supported her father’s political initiatives. She travelled abroad with her aunt and uncle, returning home after her mother died to act as hostess for her father. At the age of 29 and with her bluestocking t

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

Absolutely fantastic!!!

I loved Ian and Cor's romance!!

From the first page I was hooked....great pacing, characterization (secondary characters also great) and chemistry between the Hero and Heroine fantastic, jumping off the pages!

Ian and Cor have known each other since they had been children, they where neighbors. They have fought with each other and rubbed each other the wrong way for what seems like forever. Years latter, as adults something happens and they now have to work together to "corr

My Kindle was showing I'd read this, but I had no memory of it, so might've been someone else in the family. I really enjoyed Ian and Corinna's story. There is a great twist, hence the name of the series, and I won't give it away. Two people long ago tried to do right by each other but emotion got in the way and each has misinterpreted the actions of the other or reacted poorly, and it led each really disliking the other. Or did they? A lifetime of misunderstandings with the each other and final ...more

I discovered Katharine Ashe last year and immediately fell for her fluent style, and the humour and emotion that permeate her books. With My Lady, My Lord, I wasn’t disappointed.

Katharine has been advertising her novel as « an historical romance with a twist ». I didn’t know what to expect exactly. But one thing is for sure: I didn’t expect that! LOL Problem is: to avoid any spoiler, I can’t say anything ab

Oh man, I was not expecting that twist, but I really enjoyed it. This romance has an enemies to lovers trope with a slight supernatural twist. I can't really go into much more detail though without giving it away.

But I really liked the characters. Corinna is smart and independent and Ian is what I like to call an honorable rake. He's all about the pleasures in life, but is also hardworking and loyal to his friends and family. Corinna and Ian have pretty much always been neighbors and have alway

This book was an unexpected delight for me - it was much more emotional and touching, with way better developed characters and intricate plot than the set up from the blurb suggested. This was my first Katherine Ashe book and I'm enthralled - her style is a mix of witty repartee, fast moving plot and interesting, even unusual characters. I didn't mind the "misunderstandings" or event the ever hated HEA delay to the very end. Fun and charming - I can't wait to read something else from this author ...more

Very enjoyable! The twist was definitely not something that I normally read, especially in historical romance, but it worked for me and the ending was very romantic.

A very clever, unusual take on gender-bending. On one level this is a classic enemies to lovers story. But it is so much more. In a paranormal twist, the hero and heroine actually swap bodies. It is an enlightening experience for them and sets a course in their attitudes for each other, but they still have a lot of work to do on their own before they reach their HEA.

I loved both characters and I loved seeing them go through tough stuff and being forced to change their viewpoint. They kept their
