B's Monday Review: Lady Be Reckless by Megan Frampton

Lady Olivia refuses to repeat her siblings’ scandalous mistakes. Instead, she will marry the lord rejected by her sister and help with his good works. When he resists, Olivia forms another plan: win his lordship’s admiration by helping his illegitimate best friend find a bride. How difficult can it be to transform the rakish Edward Wolcott into a gentleman? To ignore his virile good looks? To not kiss him in a moment of impulsive madness? Apparently, very difficult indeed.

Edward Wolcott promised his ailing father he would marry well, and it appears Lady Olivia wishes to assist him. The sparkling firebrand intends to smooth his way through London’s ballrooms, parlors, and eligible ladies, while all Edward’s thoughts suddenly revolve around bedrooms . . . and Lady Olivia herself.  Only a scoundrel would seduce the duke’s most dutiful daughter. And only a truly reckless lady would risk everything to be in his arms . . .

Historical romance
Edelweiss (I know right! I was approved)

My thoughts:
This was a cute and fun romance. Though I am gonna be honest, I am pretty sure I have read it before...nope, not this book, just one with a totally similar premise. But hey, who cares, it was still fun and amusing.

Olivia wants to save the world. And also to marry Lord Carson since her sister failed to. And she does fancy him so that is good.

Edward is a bastard. The ton does not approve, but luckily his dad is really rich. He is kind and lovely and  why is the ton so evil! His dad loved his mum. His dad has raised him and still they turn their noses.

Olivia decides that Edward is her next project and he lets her (cos she is so cute and fun). Obviously they fall in love. Lord Carson, well he just have to find someone else to marry (though he does not really care.)

It was fun and cute.

I would never want to live back then. I am glad you liked this even if you did have that sense of deja vu.
