Nichola Hainesworth is eighteen years old and about to be married off by her formidable mother, the Baroness. Nichola, however, has no intention of entering the "marriage market". She realizes that a girl like her, taller than most and only attractive, rather than beautiful, would not exactly be "sought after" by eligible bachelors. Most importantly, Nichola is too intelligent to subject herself to one of the loveless marriages which are so common among her peers. Instead, Nichola wishes to do something important and useful with her life. A true tomboy, she plans to follow the example of her older brothers, and run off to join England's army and fight Napoleon.
However, the Baroness Hainesworth has other ideas for her only daughter. She wishes Nichola to marry, and to marry well. To that end, the Baroness enrolls Nichola in Mrs. Treadwell's Academy for Young Ladies. What the Baroness does not know is that while Mrs. Treadwell's does indeed teach young ladies the "gentle arts", it also strives to help them discover their true selves by allowing them to pursue other subjects not usually taught to young ladies. Some of the students find fulfillment in the sciences, and some in literature. The athletic Nichola develops a passion for fencing. Soon, Nichola's skill surpasses that of her fencing instructor, the scandalous Countess d'Oliveri, who is Mrs. Treadwell's silent partner in the Academy.
Enter Lord Brian Boru. Nichola first encounters Lord Boru at a ball, where she spies the imposing Scotsman lounging indolently in a chair, ordering servants to perform the most mean tasks for him. He is exactly what Nichola despises in the ton, and she wastes no time in letting Lord Boru know what she thinks of him. To her mortification, Nichola later learns that the reason for Lord Boru's lethargy is not laziness, but a crippling war wound. She attempts to apologize at a later meeting with him but is rebuffed, perhaps because Lord Boru dislikes himself as much as Nichola does. Nichola is surprised when Lord Boru, who is a friend of the Countess, appears at the Academy as her new fencing instructor. However, she is intrigued by his considerable fencing skill, and as time goes on, intrigued by the man. As their lessons continue, Nichola and Lord Boru fall in love...
The two lead characters in this book were enchanting. Nichola and Lord Boru are real people - attractive, passionate, emotional, and even have some flaws. I loved that they weren't the usual perfect gods and goddesses that some leads in romance novels can be. Also, I enjoyed the way their love affair helped them to change and grow. In one touching scene, Nichola looks in a mirror after a lesson with Lord Boru, and for the first time, sees herself as a beautiful woman. And it is truly gratifying to see the way that Lord Boru regains his self respect, through his relationship with Nichola.
I have two small quibbles with the book. Although the story was original and interesting up to the commencement of Nichola and Lord Boru's love affair, it ventured into usual Regency fare after that (apparently a lot of women were kidnapped during this era). Also, the narrative was jumpy in some spots, and I had to re-read a few scenes to figure out exactly what was happening (even during a major love scene!). With these qualifications, I enjoyed the book and will definitely buy Ms. Hingston's next novel.

Romancing the Celtic Soul says... Ms Hingston's delightful tale, HOW TO KISS A HERO, is sure to add a breath of fresh air to the current offerings in Regency period historicals. I was delighted to see how well developed the cast of characters were for a Regency. Readers will clamor for more tales from the School for Scandal as Gwen, and Elizabeth must have there own stories. In like fashion, readers will want to know if there is a hero for the sullen but waspish Lady Katherine as well.
Although the story takes place entirely in England, there are many delightful references to Scotland. Lady Meagan Boru is a wonderful comic addition, butlers beware! Even the dour Scottish valet adds an element of suspense that will catch the readers by surprise. Ms. Hingston has proven time and again, with her unique talent at creating well developed stories, that the Regency period need not be boring nor predictable to be fun. HOW TO KISS A HERO is much more than a tale of an ugly duckling's transformation as she teaches her hero about courage with a special love sure to make him whole again, much to the delight of readers.

Nicola must learn how to become a lady. Her mother sends her to Treadwell School. Nicola doesn't plan to stay. However, fencing lessons with an owner of the school, and then with Lord Brian Boru, changes her plans. Nicola is an unusually entertaining heroine. Is she the 'ugly duckling' whom turns into a 'swan'...or just a beauty in the eyes of Lord Brian and her other suitor.
Lord Brian's crippled knee was often forgotten, by me, due do his incredible magnetism. He definitely is a 'tortured hero', but one whose self pity never takes away from his 'hero' qualities.
The scenes between Nicola and Brian develop gradually from antagonism, into mutual admiration, into incredibly sexy scenes.
Other inhabitants from the school, as well as Nicola's family, Brian's aide, are entertaining secondary characters.
This was not a 'keeper' due to some unlikely scenes in the book. The ending was particularly weak, for me, due to a kidnapping along with the arrival of Nicola's twin, and her mother's reappearance. However, it was well worth my time and money. Ms. Kingson's prose, just flows....

This book is so wonderful. The words seem to reach out of the page and embrace you, and the author makes you care about the characters, and yet it still maintained a light and humorous tone.
The story, incidentally, is about a young woman named Nicole, whose critical mother drops her off at a debutant farm to learn how to be a "lady." Unfortunately, Nicole is hopeless. However, she does find joy in her daily fencing lessons. Eventually, the school hires a rather infamous war hero ("Bullocksing Brown," I believe it was)to teach her the finer points of sword play, and things generally progress from those phallic symbols and onward, until Nicole's younger brother gets wind of the affair, and then the fur begins to fly!
The end was a little murky, not to mention blaringly unrealistic (I thought the main characters' reunion would have been more poignant had it come about without all the kidnapping, etc.), but I still list this book as one of my favorites. A definite keeper!
