Book Details

The Wrong Lady Meets Lord Right

When a young woman trades places with her noble cousin, their innocent ruse leads to true love in this sparkling new Regency-era romantic comedy of manners from the author of Mr. Malcolm’s List.

Arabella Grant’s wicked aunt dies suddenly, both Arabella and her cousin Lady Isabelle cannot help but feel relieved. She’d made their lives miserable, and now Lady Issie is free to read to her heart’s content, and Bella is free from taunts about her ignoble birth. 

Their newfound freedom is threatened, however, when Issie’s great-aunt commands her to travel to London for a come-out Issie has never wanted. Issie, who is in poor health, is convinced she’ll drop dead like her mother did if she drops into a curtsy before the queen. So when her great-aunt turns out to be nearsighted and can’t tell the noble Lady Isabelle from her commoner cousin Arabella, Issie convinces Bella to take her place. Bella can attend all the exclusive entertainments that her lower birth would typically exclude her from, and Issie can stay in bed, her nose in a book.

Bella agrees to the scheme for her cousin’s sake, but matters turn complicated when she meets the irresistible Lord Brooke. He begins courting her while under the impression she’s the rich and aristocratic Lady Isabelle, who, unlike Bella, is a suitable bride for an eligible young earl. And Bella, who is convinced that she has met “Lord Right,” worries what will happen when she reveals that he’s actually fallen for…the wrong lady.


The Review

Hello Book friends!

Today I’m reviewing The Wrong Lady Meets the Right Lord by Suzanne Allain. In this historical romance, we follow two cousins, Arabella Grant and her noble cousin Isabelle. With Isabelle’s horrible mother in the grave, both girls find themselves in an inescapable situation, with Arabella nearly penniless and Isabelle, as sickly as she is, not ready to make her debut to the ton. Since both girls look slightly alike, they fool the ton, and Isabelle’s relatives (at least her great-aunt) by trading places. Little did either young lady expect the consequences of their actions, and how they could find happiness in the most unlikely of places.


A Few More Thoughts

I’ve found myself a new favorite author when it comes to regency-era romance, book friends! This was such a delightful book. I loved the ruse of trading places, and watching Arabella take the spotlight, becoming the belle of the season and ensnaring the irresistible Lord Brooke.

This was a quick and fun read, with moments that were laugh out loud delightful (the opening in particular, where Arabella and Lord Brooke meet, was a treat). If you like your romance novels tame, and a few unexpected plot twists, The Wrong Lady Meets The Right Lord is a romp of a novel that will enchant romance readers from start to finish.

Happy Reading ~ Cece
