Jen Turano's Gentleman of Her Dreams, is a refreshing novella with endearing main characters. Charlotte Wilson is willful, independent, and extremely accident prone. Henry St. James is the epitome of a hero. Dashing. Handsome. Gallant. Theyremind me a lot of Anne Shirley and Gilbert Blythe from Lucy Maud Montgomery's Anne of Green Gables. Despite their close friendship, misunderstandings between the duo are prominent in this romantic story. Like most young women inGilded AgeNew York, Charlotte strongly believes that Hamilton Beckett is the ideal husband for her. She convinces an unwilling Henry to help her meet the man, but each ofher plots end in disaster. During these "adventures," Charlotte and Henry both wish they were more than just friends, but unwilling to believe their love may be reciprocated. Their insecurities are realistic and their loyalty to each other make them the perfect couple.
If you are looking for a romantic comedy, Gentleman of Her Dreams, a prequel to the "Lady of Distinction" series, is a must read.
Once you start this series, you won't be able to stop!

A great christian fiction romance! I love the fast pace of the novella. Very well developed introduction to the series. With some novellas the author tries so hard to emerge you into the world they are creating in other books, that they don't take the time to develop the characters and the plot for the novella. This is NOT the case here. Gentleman of Her Dreams is an amazing stand alone read, but also gives a glimpse into her series. Based upon this I am excited to begin reading the series!

I know the phrase simply delightful may seem clich and overused but there is really no better way to describe this book. I've never really been a big Jane Austen fan, I never actually read those time of books only watched the movie remakes. But as I was reading, this felt very reminiscent of that genre. I've been reading several non-fiction books and this was just pure enjoyment.
