Historical Romance

Miss Mary Whitsun is far too intelligent to fall for the rakish charms of a handsome aristocrat. But when the gentleman in question approaches her in a bookshop, mistaking her for his fiancée, Lady Johanna Albright, the flirtatious encounter only raises more questions. Could Mary, a servant raised in a St Giles orphanage, actually be Lady Joanna's long-lost twin sister? If so, Mary has been betrothed since birth---to the rakishly handsome artistocrat himself . . .

Henry Collins, Viscount Blackwell, is far too intrigued by Mary to let her go so easily. He's drawn to her sharp mind, indomitable spirit, and the fiery way in which she dismisses him---ladies simply don't dismiss Lord Blackwell. But as Mary makes her first hesitant steps into society, she can't help but wonder if she truly has a place in Henry's world---or in his heart.

ONCE UPON A MAIDEN LANE is a perfect addition to the Maiden Lane series! The story had a fairy tale vibe that gives readers a feeling of magic.

Lord Henry was captivated by Mary Whitsun, who could be the lost Lady Cecelia Albright, daughter of an earl. Yet what he liked about her was her fiery nature, so different from the daughters of the ton. For Mary, she couldn't quite believe Henry, and she didn't want to be an aristocrat's plaything. Yet, for all her doubts, she was quite attracted to him. These two are sweet and romantic together, and I like how boldly Mary answered Henry, that yes, she did indeed wish to know him better.

Overall, very enjoyable! I was happy to see Mary have her HEA, though she might have been content looking after Temperance's kids. If you're a series fan, you don't want to miss this!
