Unladylike Behavior Frances Hadley has managed her family's estate for years. So why can't she request her own dowry? She'll have to go to London herself and knock some sense into the men interfering in her life. With the nonsense she's dealt with lately, though, there's no way she's going as a woman. A pair of breeches and a quick chop of her red curls, and she'll have much less to worry about. . . Jack Valentine, third son of the famous Duchess of Love, is through being pursued by pushy young ladies. One particularly determined miss has run him out of his own house party. Luckily the inn has one bed left--Jack just has to share with a rather entertaining red-headed youth. Perhaps the two of them should ride to London together. It will make a pleasant escape from his mother's matchmaking melodrama! "Make room on your keeper shelf for Sally MacKenzie's Duchess of Love series!" --Elizabeth Hoyt, New York Times bestselling author Praise for Bedding Lord Ned "An engaging tale that balances greed, jealousy, and malice with humor and sweetness. . .readers will cheer." --Publishers Weekly, STARRED REVIEW "MacKenzie blends a touch of poignancy with just the right amount of humor into this delightful love story." --RT Book Reviews, 4 Stars

Our customer reviews

Surprising Lord Jack is the story of Frances Hadley, a strong woman who is tired of the irresponsible men in her life and her liar aunt. She doesn't care to cut her hair and dress like a man, if it means getting her dowry and finally living alone. But she wasn't expecting to end sleeping with Jack Valentine, famous for his bad boy reputation. Jack Valentine is not going to marry Frances Hadley just because of a honest mistake, but he's sure his mother is going to help him out of this mess. Miss Frances isn't what he's looking for, she's not really beautiful with her short hair and man's clothes. But she has captured his attention, and maybe he isn't ready to let her go. I liked Surprising Lord Jack. It's a little bit predictable, with an heroine who was beautiful but needed help, a killer probably going after her, and a naughty Lord who actually is very sweet, but that doesn't mean I couldn't enjoy a good historical romance. Sometimes it was very emotional, Frances's close family is very mean with her, she's very lonely. But Jack is very close to his family, I liked his brothers although his mother should find another hobby instead of finding wives for her sons! Overall, Surprising Lord Jack is a good historical romance, I really enjoyed it and if you like this genre you should try this series, Duchess of Love. I know I'll read Ash's story (Jack's older brother) if is available some day. Positive: A good historical romance. Negative: Sometimes predictable. Interesting: The cute dog from the cover!show more
