really liked it

There is nothing more relaxing than reading a good book on a Sunday afternoon. I was so surprised at how quickly I was able to read this book and how engaged I was with it. It really was a fun afternoon read.

We meet Lady Kate Derramore who is being sent away by her uncle to have her season in London. But the worst part of it is that he is sending her younger brother, Joey, to Eton because he's too coddled. Kate is so worried about Joey being sent there because he struggles with stuttering and she is sure he will be ridiculed and bullied at Eton. So she comes up with a plan.

She will go to London and find someone who will marry her in a marriage of convenience. Her father's will states that when she marries, she will come into her inheritance and her and her husband will receive guardianship of Joey. All she has to do is find a suitable gentleman who will go along with her plan. Oh, and forget her love for an Italian man whom her father has forbidden her to marry. Easy, right?

Enter the Marquis of Northbrooke, Jack, who needs to find a wife so he can have access to his own inheritance. He falls for Lady Kate from their first meeting, but his "double life" has put him at odds with Kate since he has to break their dates and he reacts badly when an earl seems to have set his sights on her. The plot thickens as Jack's hidden identity bleeds into the careful front he's put forward---literally, and Kate is caught in the crossfire. With rogues, ruffians, ruined reputations, and more than a little romance, The Taming of Lady Kate is a regency that has all the best of the time period.
