In the first novel of Maya Rodale's stunning new series, an American heiress must learn to navigate London society and an infuriatingly irresistible rake . . .

Lord Darcy is the quintessential Englishman: wealthy, titled, impossibly proper, and horrified that a pack of Americans has inherited one of England's most respected dukedoms. But his manners, his infamous self-restraint, and his better judgment fly out the window when he finds himself with the maddening American girl next door.

Lady Bridget Cavendish has grand—but thwarted—plans to become a Perfect Lady and take the haute ton by storm. In her diary, Bridget records her disastrous attempts to assimilate into London high society, her adoration of the handsome rogue next door, her disdain for the Dreadful Lord Darcy, and some truly scandalous secrets that could ruin them all.

It was loathing at first sight for Lady Bridget and Lord Darcy. But their paths keep crossing . . . and somehow involve kissing. When Lady Bridget's diary goes missing, both Darcy and Bridget must decide what matters most of all—a sterling reputation or a perfectly imperfect love.

My Review
Lady Bridget's Diary (Cavendish, #1)Lady Bridget's Diary by Maya Rodale

I have to admit that I always enjoy a great historical romance but I don’t normally love them. Lady Bridget’s Diary broke that proverbial mold because I flat out loved it.

Searching for long lost heirs thrust the “uncivilized” and disinherited Americans, The Cavendish Family, into British high society and a dukedom. Trying their best to fit the Cavendish family still causes quite a stir. Some things just aren’t done and it seems Lady Bridget is having the worst time adjusting to this new life. Every where Bridget goes a gaggle of gossip follows her wake.

Lord Darcy is the perfect poster child for high society. Nothing about Bridget should entice Lord Darcy, but he just can’t seem to stay away. He is torn between his reputation and his desire for the spitfire, Lady Bridget, that keeps driving him mad.

In my opinion, Lady Bridget steals the show with her chutzpah while blundering her way into Lord Darcy’s heart.

Absolutely adorable, completely cute and utterly endearing, you can’t help but fall in love with Lady Bridget’s Diary.

I received this ARC copy Lady Bridget's Diary from Avon in exchange for a honest review. This book is set for publication January 26, 2015.
