Publisher's Summary

American Alexandra Freemar isn't about to put up with any flak from the uptight - albeit gorgeous - Scotland Yard inspector who accuses her of breaking and entering. She doesn't have time. She has two months in London to write the perfect romance novel - two months to prove that she can succeed as an author. Luckily, reserved Englishmen are not her cup of tea. Yet....

    "Good for a giggle or two"

    Not bad, the main character is a bit over the top drama queen but otherwise a cute story.

    Story
    "Self-rescuing princess."
    Would you listen to Improper English again? Why?

    Yes. For the humor...and the sex.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    Alexandra...because she changed.


    What does Saskia Maarleveld bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    Emotion and tone. Male voices could use a bit of work, but otherwise good.


    If you were to make a film of this book, what would the tag line be?

    Self-rescuing princess.


    Any additional comments?

    I'm a big fan of Katie MacAlister. I was happy to find this 2003 book made into a 2017 audiobook. What I love most about her books is her sense of humor...and her sex scenes. I'm a bit confused by some of the negative reviews. Yes, the main character is a bit annoying. She is likable, but flawed. She redeems herself in the end. I thought it was interesting that there were clips of the Medieval romance the main character was writing between chapters. Like the character, the character's writing got better. In Medieval romance, the hero must prove himself worthy of the fair lady. In this book, the heroine must prove she is worthy of the hero. I really liked this book and thought it was very funny and sexy.

    Story
    "Awkwardly written boring mess"

    I barely made it to the end it was so bad. Where to start or end really? the whole premise of the relationship was silly. The lead keeps throwing herself at this man and not in a funny or endearing way. The conflicts aren't real enough to make me care a lick about the characters--least of all the lead. The voices weren't that great--she could use a bit more practice doing male voices. Or perhaps next time get a man to narrate those parts. Either way nothing can save this snore bore of a book.

    Story
    "Repetitive"

    There was so much filler in the form of ridiculous repetitiveness. Very little back story of main female (or male, for that matter) character. Too much self loathing, desperation and ill temperament.
