What if you could play your very own plucky heroine in a historical romance? What if you could choose between the Scottish Highlands, the ton of London, the sands of Egypt and more? And what if you could choose your own dashing lad…or lovely lady?
If this is the type of romance you’re looking for then My Lady’s Choosing by Kitty Curran and Larissa Zageris is the book for you!
When I first came across this book I had to give it a shot even though historical romance isn’t my personal favorite. I remember many a Choose-Your-Own-Adventure book back in elementary school and I couldn’t pass up an opportunity to read the adult version of this idea. I enjoyed the creativity of picking different paths and exploring different options as I moved through the book. I tried a few different paths that ended with different love interests but there so many more to choose from! There really are options for a variety of readers and each has it’s own silly fun.
And that’s really the best way to describe this book, silly fun! It doesn’t take itself too seriously and the authors clearly had a great time writing it. The stories are on the shorter side and filled with over the top, overly dramatic love. The writing isn’t the best in the world but the stories are certainly entertaining. The crazy metaphors for sex and the accompanying *ahem* body parts were worth the read alone. If you go into this with the idea of just having some fun then you’ll probably really enjoy it.
The romance novel that lets you pick your path, follow your heart, and find happily ever after
You are the plucky but penniless heroine in the center of eighteenth-century society, courtship season has begun, and your future is at hand. Will you flip forward fetchingly to find love with the bantering baronet Sir Benedict Granville? Or turn the page to true love with the hardworking, horse-loving highlander Captain Angus McTaggart? Or perhaps race through the chapters chasing a good (and arousing) man gone mad, bad, and scandalous to know, Lord Garraway Craven? Or read on recklessly and take to the Continent as the “traveling companion” of the spirited and adventuresome Lady Evangeline? Or yet some other intriguing fate? Make choices, turn pages, and discover all the daring delights of the multiple (and intertwining!) storylines. And in every path you pick, beguiling illustrations bring all the lust and love to life.
