If people only see what they expect to see, then why doesn’t Julia Harrington?
When her friend, Lady Samantha, spies a rather handsome groom from her bedchamber window, Lady Julia agrees the man is far too handsome to be a groom. “He could be a gentleman,” she tells Sam, thinking it wouldn’t be too difficult to teach the servant how to speak and dance and dress like a gentleman. Doubting Julia can accomplish such a task, Samantha dares her to do just that—and in time for the Mayfield ball—in just three weeks!
Alistair Comber, the second son of the Earl of Aimsley, was fighting Napoleon's forces on the Continent until his true identity was revealed. Having assured one of his dying soldiers he would see to a monthly income for the man’s widow and children, Alistair returns to England intending to keep the promise. His father refuses to honor the obligation, though, so Alistair is forced to sell his commission to help raise the funds. Angered that his son would do such a thing, the earl disowns Alistair.
In need of a position and a place to live, Alistair uses his skills as an expert horseman to gain a position as a groom at Harrington House.
When Lady Julia tells him of her plans to make him into a gentleman in time for the ball, Alistair agrees to the scheme. After all, how hard can it be when he’s already a gentleman? Alistair is about to find out just how hard it can be in My Fair Groom.

The beginning of the book we see Alistair Comber whom is The earl of Aimsley's second son and Gabriel Wellington whom is The Earl of Trenton talking together. We find out some of their history right off the bat. Gabriel seems a little odd but it just seems he was steered in the wrong direction for his clothing choices. By the end he seems like a good guy. He is one of the romances that we see in the book the other one is of course Alistair. Alistair has been disowned by his father and has found a job working in the Stables for the Harrington house. This is when we meet Lady Julia Harrington and her friend Lady Samantha who dares her to turn the groom into a gentleman. It was a good read. I actually liked most of the characters. A couple were a little weird and different but no one was really a true villain type. I do like that when things were revealed in the end most people were reasonable rather than being small minded. Worth a read. I received this book for free from eBook Discovery. I voluntarily review this book. This is my honest review.
