Description from Amazon.com:         

A brown-eyed bastard with nothing to lose

As the illegitimate son of a duke, Bramwell Wesley Hallowsby grew up tough, on the fringes of society, learning to hide his hurt and cynicism with charm and Town polish. He’s carved out a place for himself as a mercenary, serving as bodyguard and general strong arm for the peerage. Bram has nothing to lose… and he’s exactly what Maybelle “Bluebell” Ballenger needs.

Meets his match in a blue-eyed beauty with everything to hide

Maybelle needs a mentor to teach her to speak and act like a lady, so she can claim the place in society she was denied. As they team up to take on the ton, Bram knows she’s hiding something even from him. Despite the deception he sees behind those sparkling blue eyes, Bram wants to believe that Maybelle’s love is no lie. But it seems fate has served him up his just desserts in the likes of this determined damsel.

**

Laugh out loud funny! This delight is filled with a hero who is a mighty legend in the minds of the ton but who is just really rather ordinary, an ordinary country girl heroine who is really rather extraordinary, a hilarious ton couple, Dicky and Clarissa, who are swindlers on the run hiring our hero, Bram, for protection and a rather corpulent pig that needs rescuing.  All this fun is tied up with a slow building romance.

Jade Lee is masterful at plotting and characterization.  She shines in this, the first of hers that I’ve read, that brings such accomplished comedy. This romance is perfect for this time of the year when we want to feel the warmth of the season and read a heartwarming, lusty, perfect story. I guarantee you will like this one.
