Overview
In this Regency twist of My Fair Lady, Jack would rather be at sea than fixing the mistakes of his grandfather, the late Earl of Stansworth. Instead, he finds that inheriting his grandfather's wealth and title--and securing the welfare of his sister and mother--means joining the ranks of high society and living with the aristocracy. Luckily, Ivy Carlisle, the granddaughter of a dear friend of Jack's late grandmother, is willing to teach him etiquette and properly introduce him into society. Jack soon learns that his challenge isn't surviving his new lifestyle but surviving the conspiracies against him--as well as keeping himself from falling madly in love with his new tutor.

Fans of sweet Regencies will enjoy this fun romance, in which proper lady Ivy Carlisle plays Professor Higgins to merchant sailor Jack Elliots Eliza. Jack needs to enter high society as John Weldon Elliot, the new Earl of Stansworth. Hes the old earls legitimate grandson, newly reinstated into the family at the earls dying request, but he knows nothing about being a gentleman. While Jack wants to reject the title and high society, he wants a better life for his sister, Sophia, and their mother, so he needs Ivy to teach him how to speak properly, dress, and carry himself. Despite a reputation for circumspect behavior, Ivy is no demure Regency debutante. Her independent streak comes in handy when someone tries to kill Jack, as well as when they face the challenges of setting up a halfway house for prostitutes. Her desire to make a difference infuses the story with excitement and action. Despite social restrictions, Ivy, Jack, and Sophia forge strong friendships and figure out ways to do good with the power and money behind Jacks title, while avoiding the endless cycle of vapid gossip, petty jealousies, and idle pursuits. Pygmalion stories are common in the genre; this is one of the better ones. Agent: Pam van Hylckama Vlieg, D4EO Literary Agency. (Jan.)
