Beautiful and feisty Henrietta Barrett has never followed the dictates of society. She manages her elderly guardian's estate, prefers to wear breeches rather than dresses, and answers to the unlikely name of Henry. But when her guardian passes away, her beloved home falls into the hands of a distant cousin. William Dunford, London's most elusive bachelor, is stunned to learn that he's inherited property, a title ... and a ward bent on making his first visit his last. Henry is determined to continue running the Cornwall estate without help from the handsome new lord, but Dunford is just as sure he can change things ... starting with his wild young ward. But turning Henry into a lady makes her not only the darling of the ton, but an irresistible attraction to the man who thought he could never be tempted.… (más)

Light as air and filled with sparkling witty dialogue. Henry, our heroine brought to mind Katherine Hepburn in almost every role she played, and that is all to the good. Dunford was a delightful honorable reformed rake. I did like the first half better than the second. The impediment to our HandH being together was one of those things that could have been easily cleared up and wasn't, and we lost all our witty repartee after that. Still, overall this was delightful. ( )

One of my all-time favorite JQ books. This was actually the first book of hers that I read, so there may be some first-book-bias, but even after numerous re-reads, it is still laugh-out-loud funny, and Dunford is still my favorite JQ hero. He's handsome, charming, disarming, and a veritable wit, and he's more than met his match in Miss Henrietta "Henry" Barrett. Add the fact that quite a bit of it takes place in Cornwall and you got me.

The first third of the book is very funny, when Dunford learns that he's inherited a title and estate and goes to Cornwall to check it out. Henry has been running things for six years and doesn't care to have a new lord sniffing around, especially if he's a new young lord, so she sets out to oust him in quite a few hilarious ways. They manage to become friends almost in spite of themselves, and develop an attraction, and then Dunford learns that he's Henry's guardian and feels it necessary to bring her out into Society.

The scenes in London are also humorous, but the final act of the plot brings this down a notch from squeeful adoration. There's a stupid Big Misunderstanding which more or less ruins all that Dunford and Henry have built up right before their marriage, and their separation is heart-rending (and stupid). If either one of them had just opened their mouths, they wouldn't have had to go through the anger and heartache. But, as this was only JQ's third novel, I suspect she felt she needed to include some of these well-worn tropes. She really hit her stride with the Bridgerton saga about five years after this was published.

There's never been a hero like Dunford, though, and for him, I'm willing to even read the less-than-great ending to this otherwise frothy, fun read. ( )

The heroine is not really plain, but she believes herself to be unattractive because she is a tomboy, and is insecure about her femininity. There is a ton of angst and misunderstandings and other stuff right up my alley. I would LOVE to read more books like this. I loved how Henry just assumed no man would ever want her because she's so independent and brash and wears pants. More like this one, please! (4.5 stars)

First read in June of 2011. Rating stands up to the re-read! ( )
