This book was so much freaking fun!
It's the story of Charlotte and Marcus. She's been granted the ability to change shape by a faerie godmother and he's an Earl with more than a few difficulties in life. Someone is out to ruin him (or maybe multiple someones are) and after his secretary is injured seeks a new one. Enter Charlotte, who has taken the form of a man named Christopher and applied for the job. Of course he gets it ... and of course she ends up falling for Marcus ... and of course she has to keep the truth of her ability a secret....ish.
It's part fairytale, part mystery, part romance and, as I've mentioned, so much freaking fun. I cracked up over Charlotte's naïvety and how she dealt with her new male bits ... swooned over the steamy bits (I know, right? I'm beginning to think that maybe I'm okay with the steamy stuff as long as it's pre-1900 .... and well-written) ... gasped over the violent bits. Amazingly, none of it was overdone so skimming was involved. I happily read every last word and will happily get my hands on anything else Emily Larkin has to offer!I know, I know ... "First Chapter First Paragraph Tuesday Intros" from Bibliophile by the Sea is on vacation ... but I'm used to doing these two together so I'm just going to stick with it. "Teaser Tuesday" at The Purple Booker asks for a random line or two from anywhere in the book currently being read.
