ARC REVIEW Lady Claire is All That by Maya Rodale
Lord Fox is a dandy, he is always impeccably dressed in the best fashions, knows all the right people and was set to marry the perfect society wife, until she jilted him and eloped with someone else; an actor. Claire was only looking forward to moving to London for one reason meeting one of the finest mathematical minds ever. She doesn't care one bit about all the dandies and the ignorance of the ton she just cares about mathematics. Fox trying to win his bet agrees to introduce her to the Duke she has been wanting to meet. Fox also agrees to take her to some lectures and because she's "just a woman" he helps get her in discussions. Claire doesn't know why Fox has decided to pay attention to her but she doesn't care as long as she gets to talk about math she's happy, but the more he spends around her integrating her into society the more she starts to like him. Fox doesn't like math, he doesn't understand anything about it but the more time he spends with Claire the more jealous he gets over her. But the bet that he knows he never should have made is pulling him at the seams. He has fallen in love with Claire is he ready to lose the bet for her.
Overall it plays out pretty much like the movie, it's cute and kind of aggravating in the way good stories do.
