Bridget Cavendish wasn't born and raised to be a lady, but now that her brother has become the seventh Duke of Durham, her sisters and her have no choice but to become one since they decided to travel to London with him from America. Bridget is determined to learn the rules of the ton, but she is finding it to be a tedious task, as she notes in her diary.

Lord Darcy was pretty sure that the introduction of the American heir and his sisters was the downfall of English society. As appalled as he is by Lady Bridget's missteps, he finds himself continuously coming to her side.

When Darcy's brother Rupert expresses a desire to marry Bridget, Darcy is forced to admit that he finds the American miss is more than a little irresistible.

I think that this is the first book I've read by Maya Rodale, but it most certainly won't be my last! She did a great job bringing Lady Bridget's Diary to life, and I didn't want to put this book down.
Darcy was a bit of a stick in the mud, while Bridget had a carefree air about her, though she was trying to reign herself in to be a proper lady. I liked that she made him loosen up and reassess his priorities. They were a cute couple together.

I think Ms. Rodale did a great job bringing the characters to life, I thoroughly enjoyed Bridget's family and can't wait to read their stories. Also, I really liked Rupert and the storyline about him. I despised Lady Francesca and wouldn't mind to see her dropped down a few more levels in the future books of this series.

In the first hilarious entry in her brand new series, USA Today bestselling author Maya Rodale re-invents a love story we all know and cherish.
Lord Darcy is the epitome of perfect

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

Lady Bridget is the opposite of perfect

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 in London high society, her adoration of the handsome rogue next door, her loathing of the Dreadful Lord Darcy and some truly scandalous secrets that could ruin them all.

They cannot stand each other-and yet they cannot stay away

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.
