    I really enjoyed this Which is odd because it s got a number of aspects that usually send me running screaming Historical romance with English setting but the characters talk like modern Americans a nominally late Victorian setting but the social interaction appears to be Jane Austen via Avon romance also a misunderstanding trope However, what we also have is magic, demon summoning, and a kickass heroine sent back from the future to kill an evil wizard, but who has to learn to pose as a I really enjoyed this Which is odd because it s got a number of aspects that usually send me running screaming Historical romance with English setting but the characters talk like modern Americans a nominally late Victorian setting but the social interaction appears to be Jane Austen via Avon romance also a misunderstanding trope However, what we also have is magic, demon summoning, and a kickass heroine sent back from the future to kill an evil wizard, but who has to learn to pose as a proper lady did you say proper for 1815 or 1885 Sssh Terminator meets My Fair Lady with magic, basically, with blood powered guns hidden under floofy dresses It s enormous fun, exuberant, with some tremendously good ideas and tons of heart, and also a great relationship between the MCs themselves and with the hero s younger sister Very silly, but sometimes silly is exactly what you need, and frankly if the future would like to send backkickass assassins to murder world destroying idiots, I think we d all be grateful

    No Proper Lady is the hands down, weirdest historical romance I have read If you take all perceived notions of historical romance and mix in a weird helping of Victorian occult, tentacle wielding rulers of the universe, a manuscript that houses the mysteries of the Dark Ones bent on destroying life as we know it, and an unusual but kickass heroine whom literally wears weapons as body parts well, I think you get the ideaNo Proper Lady is not your average Victorian era smut I can t believe No Proper Lady is the hands down, weirdest historical romance I have read If you take all perceived notions of historical romance and mix in a weird helping of Victorian occult, tentacle wielding rulers of the universe, a manuscript that houses the mysteries of the Dark Ones bent on destroying life as we know it, and an unusual but kickass heroine whom literally wears weapons as body parts well, I think you get the ideaNo Proper Lady is not your average Victorian era smut I can t believe how entertained I was by it all it is not a novel I could take very seriously, but I enjoyed it regardless of the few plot and character driven problems the novel revealed. Joan was a phenomenal heroine, probably my favorite of every historical romance I ve ever read She s a soldier with a take no shit attitude that is pretty impressive considering what she had to give up to travel back in time on a mission to save the her people andimportantly, the world I enjoyed that Joan is the obviously dominant personality in the relationship forming with Simon I also liked how much Ellie Simon s broken sister recovering from Alex s demonic attack grew into aconfident young woman as she and Joan grew closer Women were considered equals in Joan s time and she doesn t hesitate to point out the obvious flaws in how much society values a genteel and air headed woman I had moments I wanted to break out in applause, but I refrained myself.While Simon and Joan were very sexually compatible they practically burn up the sheets , I found Simon to agree with society s views on women too much for my liking For one, he is quick to become suspicious of Joan for agreeing with his pretty dangerous plan to try to reform his ex bestie while also saving the world from said man at the same time He becomes irrationally jealous when she is given the task to get close to Alex in search for his Manuscript of Doom not the real name as we weren t actually given the name of the book might have helped in the search,, don t you think when her idea was much easier and FAR LESS DANGEROUS FOR HER IN THE FIRST PLACE He acts as an idiot for a good while, but he does eventually learn the error of his ways after Joan has to knock him on the head with them, of course rolls eyes While Simon s character flaws did annoy me to some extent, they weren t nearly so distracting as the obvious plot holes in Cooper s world building Don t get me wrong, she comes up with a crazy entertaining plot, but I was left with a few questions yet answered How did Simon and Alex truly discover magic was real Can all humans practice or are people born with supernatural ability The author isn t clear on much of anything and I became frustrated with all the mysterious, evasive answers that left a lot desired I am a curious reader and need to know everything I possibly can about the world the characters live in, but by the time I finished I I barely had any answers to my initial questions.At the end of the day, I did enjoy reading this book This was a new to me author and I will probably find myself reading the second book soon enough I am keeping my fingers crossed that book two hasin depth world building and less evasive answers I recommend No Proper Lady to fantasy fans and those who enjoy a unique Victorian era historical romance. You made it to the end If you enjoyed my review, please consider giving it a thumbs up onhere Thank you for all that you doabout author This review was originally posted on One Curvy Blogger

    RATING almost 2.5 stars No Proper Lady was an impulse buy I know I have a lot of those, gah I wanted to read an historical romance, but somehow I also wanted a bit of paranormal So when I read the synopsis for this book, I thought it was exactly what I was looking for.And it was, in a way The idea is still pretty good The execution yes, you read right, it s one of those sigh , howeverI was okay with time travel and Joan being a though female Very good I did not like the way her RATING almost 2.5 stars No Proper Lady was an impulse buy I know I have a lot of those, gah I wanted to read an historical romance, but somehow I also wanted a bit of paranormal So when I read the synopsis for this book, I thought it was exactly what I was looking for.And it was, in a way The idea is still pretty good The execution yes, you read right, it s one of those sigh , howeverI was okay with time travel and Joan being a though female Very good I did not like the way her first encounter with Simon the hero went down It appears Simon is a wizard and doesn t frown on bright lights and women from the future which means he pretty much took it in stride and didn t doubt her There was no fights, no disbelief, no period of adjustment It was like Oh right I ll help a strange woman, give her dresses and all I just didn t feel like it was realistic behaviour.Also it bugged me that the focus of the book was Joan learning to fit Victorian society Half the book is about that and the instantaneous attraction between her and Simon and I was kind of bored, because, well it was boring and the interactions were not very interesting Or conductive to attraction Basically, the protagonists had no chemistry.After this first half, Joan and company move to London to meet their foe Simon s former friend , who could have been a layered, complex character but ended up being the villain of the jour As mean as they come and strangely with a tendency for self pity Woe, no one understands my evilness that made me roll my eyes The part where the heroes deal with this very dangerous villain is short and anti climatic after all the talk of him being so powerful and so dangerous It was like Cooper was tired of the story and decided to end it abruptly after spending much of the book focusing on Joan and how she couldn t dance or eat properly I think the major problem with this book is that it tries to be too much time travel story, mystery and thriller, paranormal fiction, historical romance and consequently none of these are very well developed Same for the characters I did like the descriptions of Joan s world great setting for gritty urban fantasy and her flashgun I did not, however, like Joan that much I didn t connect with any of the characters, really.Overall No Proper Lady could have been an interesting book it certainly had an interesting idea behind it but the author seemed to want to cram so much into the story it ended up being underdeveloped And generally boring, except for a few select parts Not a time travel romance I would recommend

    I picked this book up on a whim That night I jumped into the prologue and thought, ah hell not my kinda story Closed it right back up.A couple of days later I received a notice that another book I requested was in, so I took this book and headed back to the library Since I was too early, I sat outside and read the 1st chapter till the doors opened This book came right back home with me.4.5 This is a time travel which I liked futuristic urban fantasy which I ve read once or twice and I picked this book up on a whim That night I jumped into the prologue and thought, ah hell not my kinda story Closed it right back up.A couple of days later I received a notice that another book I requested was in, so I took this book and headed back to the library Since I was too early, I sat outside and read the 1st chapter till the doors opened This book came right back home with me.4.5 This is a time travel which I liked futuristic urban fantasy which I ve read once or twice and found I didn t like female warrior assassin please save me from super uber ass kickin warrior women % which this heroine WAS NOT super uber ass kicker that is Lots of hocus pocus goes on too.I really enjoyed this story Although the plot begins during a futuristic apocalypse of the human race, the book was scary in a few parts but not dark and heavy Beginning Some time in the futureI don t know whereTime travel to 1888 EnglandSorcerers Witchcraft DemonsThe plot jumps right to it After years of preparation, the holy ones and Priests are now setting their plan into motion to change the course of the world s present destruction of humanity and the world itself, at the hands of the dark lords and demons rather reminds me of present day leaders sitting in D.C They are sending one assassin back in time They have one hope, one shot and it all rests on Joan.This entire scene put me in the mind of ancient druid rituals.Joan has been prepared with very minimal information for this primitive time in the past and realizes she will not ever return to her dangerous, deadly world when if her mission is accomplished She accepts the reality that she has little chance of surviving either way.Isabel Cooper did a very good job creating likeable characters The comparisons she creates from a dying apocalyptic world to a prominent estate in Victorian England was wonderful In one scene Joan is horseback riding with Simon H and she stops and asks What are those Flowers, Simon tells her I m afraid I couldn t tell you the names of them There are roseslarkspur and such Joan asks. Do they do anything I mean, do you eat them or build with them, or do they protect againstthings Startled, Simon tells her They re just flowers Pretty, you know The plot is easy reading, enjoyable and entertaining It didn t take me long to read all 329 pages and I m looking forward to her next book

    You might have noticed that I did not give a rating for how I felt about this book To be honest I have no clue, I didn t hate it and I didn t love it There was nothing in it that made me think this is horrible and painful and yet it was a struggle to finish and I almost gave up a few times Perhaps I just was not in the right mood for it because the synopsis was great Talk about a Terminator sort of story mixed with romance So please bear with me as I ramble through my feelings about this bo You might have noticed that I did not give a rating for how I felt about this book To be honest I have no clue, I didn t hate it and I didn t love it There was nothing in it that made me think this is horrible and painful and yet it was a struggle to finish and I almost gave up a few times Perhaps I just was not in the right mood for it because the synopsis was great Talk about a Terminator sort of story mixed with romance So please bear with me as I ramble through my feelings about this book.I would probably have to say it was the characters that was lacking most Joan is supposed to be this kick ass assassin from the future but other than shooting a couple other wordly beings and the fact that she swears and speaks like a modern day woman we don t see much else of her supposed fighting killing abilities I also felt indifferent towards her because although we know she came from a harsh world and has parents that were still alive when she left for this mission we don t learn muchabout her Same thing with Simon and the villain Reynell We know both practice magic and were once best friends but now are at each other s throats Hints are given about why they became enemies but nothing other than Reynell making some choices Simon disagreed with and Reynell being jealous of Simon for some reason that enmity wasn t really fully developed either.As I write this I am realizing the main fault was there were so many bits and pieces that held potential but nothing was ever fully fleshed out For instance, the world Joan comes from is obviously horrible but she makes references to traitors and the Dark Ones pets but this world isn t painted in muchdetail besides those types of references It would have felt so muchreal if we could truly see what she has traveled back in time and abandoned all hope of returning to her family in order to change.All in all not a book I would read again and probably one you will have to check out for yourself I ve seen a couple other people rave about it so perhaps I was just in the wrong frame of mind going into this one

    Highly enjoyable read Loved Joan, and Simon was exactly right for a Victorian magician a bit stuffy, a bit eccentric, and a great match for his heroine Enjoyed the world and the action adventure and the romance was sexy.
