Helpful Score: 2
This is a fun read, at many times very humorous. I think it is a farce. If you are looking for romance, you will be disappointed, though. The heroine (Cora) is pretty silly. She believes that the hero prefers man yet she still marries him. She spends most of the story tripping and falling into all sorts of scrapes, yet when she marries, she runs the household with utmost efficiency. Ok... The hero (Lord Francis) spends most of the time pining for the woman that he loved and lost(the heroine of Lord Carew's Bride), then he realizes that he has fallen in love with Cora. In all, read it for its humor and Balogh's writing style, which is superb, but do not expect great romance or character development.
THE UNCOMMON COMMONER
Miss Cora Downes was only a merchant's daughter. But when she saved a duke's son from drowning, her reward was entry into London high society. Cora had a style of beauty and mode of manners that made her a fish out of water in that sophisticated world. But when she saved a highborn lady's poodles from disaster, she became the belle of every ball.
Cora has never met a man like the exquisitely elegant, unabashedly blue-blooded Lord Francis Kneller. But when they found themselves in a position too compromising to conceal, nothing could save her from a marriage to a man who would surely disdain her as a wife. Nothing could save her then from the threat of heartbreak - nothing, perhaps, except a most unlikely love...
Review: I love Balogh. This is an excellent book and has been on my keepers shelf for a long time but I finally decided to let someone else enjoy it.
