I love reading Katie MacAlister’s books because she writes romance either contemporary, paranormal or historical and they have a way about it that makes me laugh when I read. Her books are always fun to read and I enjoy them. I really loved reading her novel The Corset Diaries because it was funny and romantic all in one, which I think is a good combination together. This book was one of the many that I have bought of Katie MacAlister’s and I loved reading it even though I’m not much into reading books in the first person. This book is not about a skinny heroine, which I have to say most novels are about, but about a good sized heroine who meets this great guy with a very spoiled daughter. I have to say that it was a very good read and that is why I like reading Katie MacAlister’s novels, even though I like to read about more than the heroine’s point of view, she writes in a way that you can still get the full affect through the heroine. Here is the description of the book from the back cover and picture:
THE CORSET DIARIES $ 6.99 (344 Pages)
“I HAVE TO WEAR WHAT???”
No woman in her right mind would consent to wearing a corset for a month. Especially a “skinny-challenged” woman like myself. But dreams of being debt-free danced in my head when I received the offer to appear on a reality TV show. A Month in the Life of a Victorian Duke is about real people—like me—pretending to live on an English estate, circa 1879. Sounds fun, no? Well, it wasn’t all it was cracked up to be. We’re talking no televisions, no cell phones, and no PMS medication. And did I mention the corsets? No breathing for a full month. Luckily, when I met the real-life duke who was to be my pretend husband, he took my breath away…. In a manor in which everyone must strictly follow the Victorian lifestyle, things were bound to go wrong. Like when some harmless lust turned into the other thing…Love was definitely not in the contract.
