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.

Earlier this summer, I read a different book by Kitty Curran & Larissa Zageris: The Secrets of the Starbucks Lovers. It was a detective novel featuring Taylor Swift and Lorde, and if you haven’t read it, I highly recommend it. Much like that book, My Lady’s Choosing was an experience. Is it well-written? Probably not. Would I have enjoyed it as a traditional romance novel? Nope. Was it a really fun way to spend a Tuesday night? You bet it was.

The thing about this book is that it’s just fun. Don’t take it seriously. Don’t pretend that it’s high-level literature. It’s cute and maybe a little trashy and the choices are honestly hilarious. At one point, I had to decide whether I wanted to be a curious wench or a demure governess, and I just about died laughing. In real life, I’m more of a demure governess, so clearly, the version of myself in this book had to be a curious wench. Things worked out pretty well, though there was a big plot twist at the end.

I still have a few days before this one is due back to the library, so I’m planning to choose a few more paths when I get a minute. Highly recommended if you’re looking for a fun time.
