Ahah! Finally a historical romance with a slightly modern twist. A Tale of Two Lovers by Maya Rodale is a very interesting story where both of the protagonists are bull-headed. It’s all about battle of sexes in A Tale of Two Lovers, and I can’t help but smile at the quirkiness and irony that’s deliberately thrown in this story. I like this story very much. The story is very dynamic and moving instead of just plain romantic like many other historical fiction that I’ve read. This book gives you the sweet kind of feeling, and it’s a must read if you love historical romance.
If I were to rate this book, I’d give it a 4 star out of 5 stars, and i would recommend this as a Valentine’s day gift to ladies who loves historical romance.
From the back of the book:
Lord Simon Roxbury is a godsend to gossip columnists everywhere. This notorious rake has recently been caught in an extremely compromising position by none other than The London Weekly‘s Lady of Distinction. Rumor also has it that Lord R received an ultimatum: be wed or be penniless.
As A Lady of Distinction, Lady Julianna Somerset typically reports on other people’s scandals, but soon she finds herself embroiled in a very public battle with an irate Lord Roxbury — one that leaves her reputation in tatters and her position at The Weekly on the line.
With no other choice available, these two enemies unite in a marriage of convenience to rescue both their reputations and secure his fortune. With their rivals intent on revealing the charade, Lady Julianna and Lord Simon inevitably surrender to temptation. It may just be a love match after all. . . .
