In Good used condition with cover wear and creasing, cover and pages age-tanned. She was a lady's maid who longed to be a lady. How else could Lucy Balfour hope to win the favor of Andrew, Viscount Harvey, the toast of the town, who seemed ready to take a bride at last? There was only one way to command his attention, and it was an impossible dream.

She was a bewitching young girl, that pretty Polly Marsh, and she knew it. She also knew that beauty could be her passport into the castles where she had always known she belonged. So she set her sights for a duke and joined the firm of Westermanâ?s as a stenographer. Surely one of that noble family would notice her and then all of her dreams would come true!

But others didâ?¦ and were only too happy to remind her that dashing Lord Peter was merely playing at love when he appeared to be paying her court. The duchess was beside herself. Peterâ?s brother, the starchy Marquis of Wollerton, was desperate to pry Peter from Pollyâ?s side. But Polly was determined to have Peterâ?¦ and her dream. Peter wouldnâ?t betray herâ?¦ would he?

I liked the characters, particularly some the of supporting characters, but the class differences between the heroine, Polly, and the Marquis, the hero, made the suspension of disbelief required too hard to sustain. It is one thing to have a blue-blooded young women reduced to poverty or a well educated commoner female from a rich family making the jump across the class divide, but the moderately educated daughter of Cockney greengrocers, elocution lessons notwithstanding, isn't about to make that jump.

This would have been a more intellectually honest story if Polly had become the Marquis' long term mistress. I still recommend this book for the witty and touching subplots involving the secondary characters.

If you want a more believable telling of love across the class divide see M.C. Beaton's My Lords, Ladies, and Marjorie (Royal Series) or Gayle Buck's The Desperate Viscount.

Love all of the books in Beaton's series. She has clearly done her homework on the period and
comes up with many facts about the life and times of the 'ladies in love' that I never knew about the
period. The books are, of course, romances, but from a modern perspective that address the beginnings
of feminism.

Not as good as her other work; a bit sloppy writing, but still interesting enough to while away an afternoon.

I have enjoyed all Beaton books, this one had a most unusual plot, hard to understand where her ideas come from

Real light reading.

I enjoyed this book, it was in most respects typically like many of M.C. Beaton's books where the unconventional heroine meets rich aristocrat. I much prefer the Regency setting more than the Edwardian.

Miss Polly Marsh, a foolish and naive young lady, had thought she deserved a better life. She was the daughter of a simple tradesman at the turn of the century. As a child, her mother had made the mistake of seeing that Polly received elocution lessons so that she was unencumbered of the local Cockney accent. She had an uncommon beauty and was very much aware of this feature. She thought it was her entitlement to become the wife of a duke.

For over the first half of the romance, the heroine was shallow and I just knew she was going to find a bump in her road to love. It came by way of Lord Peter, the depthless second son of the Duke of Westerman and a charmer. Polly probably deserved him if not that Edward, the Marquis of Wollerton, and Lord Peter’s elder brother, entered the picture.

First impressions are important but everyone deserves a second chance. –Unknown Quote

Edward was much older than both Polly and Peter. Their mother convinced him to break up the pair and he planned to do it with as much grace as possible. Except that when Edward and Polly spoke to each other, she was delectably disagreeable. She liquefied his common sense.

This is the first story I have read by Jennie Tremaine aka Marion Chesney. Just set aside your judgment on whether the romance could have taken place. Some of the actions of the main characters became irrelevant as far as historical accuracy was concerned but I found it amusing enough that I didn’t care –which is very unusual for me. I actually thought the author was poking fun of the class system with some well-placed humor and several interesting secondary stories. I should enjoy reading other books by this author.
I think this is probably my favourite book by this author. I've decided to read the entire series seeing as it's free on KU. It's clear to me that Ms Beaton doesn't write the most romantic of stories. She's also not shy for us to see the main characters' weaknesses. Here the h is born on the wrong side of town but she's always been beautiful. Her parents pay for to have elocution lessons and she learns the skills necessary for becoming an office stenographer. She thinks she's worthy of marrying a Duke and goes to work for a business owned by a Ducal family. She hopes to snag one of the sons and she manages to engineer a meeting with the second son, at an office party held on the Ducal Estate. The story flows pretty well from there and you see the h getting taken down a peg or two, all the way through the book. The H also has a few lessons to learn along the way. A very enjoyable story.
