Cassandra “Cassie” Harcourt is recently
orphaned and has been sent to London to apply as a maid in
the house of the local Vicar’s sister-in-law. But, as
nothing in Cassie’s life seems to be going well she falls
into a manure pile in the wet gutter outside of the coaching
inn and now is being taken for a harlot. So much so she
narrowly escapes a pervert’s procurer. But she is just what
Lord Deveraux needs, to win the latest bet between him and
friends. He needs to turn her into a London Lady and
present her before anyone is the wiser.
Will Cassie go along with the ruse?
And will she and Lord Deveraux let the feelings between them
fully develop or will propriety keep them apart?
Lord Deveraux’s Lady is a
play on “My Fair Lady” and the training of a non-society
lady to be able to pass off as one of society’s own. I did
find the story quite predictable but it was well written in
the fact that you were able to see how Cassie would wind up
in these situations during this time period. So while you
will know what the end result of Lord Deveraux’s Lady
is the trip to get there is a fun read.
