Hey, Danielle. This is Melissa from A Drop of Romeo. Ma Mademoiselle Bizarre has been added under the Historical category. Here's you review:
Melissa Thinks: “Ma Mademoiselle Bizarre” was not a story that I expected to like. Reading the summary, I was unsure of what kind of
First we have Glen Carlisle, a true gentleman who never imagined himself to be part of high society, until his cousin dies and the title of the “Earl of Broadbent” goes to him. And then we’ve got Lorraine, a wild child who has one rule and one rule only: she will never marry. When these two meet, there’s an instant attraction, but can Lorraine open herself up to Glen? And just what happened when she was seventeen that changed her?
It’s hard to not like this story, with it’s flowing elegance and interesting historical details, it charms you almost instantaneously. The flares of love/hate and astounding wit that echo throughout give the characters dimension and make them incredibly likable - even the minor characters. I really love the simple yet provocative plot because not only is it easy to follow, but it’s also so lighthearted and you finish the story feeling a bit more cheerful than when you started.
At it’s core, “Ma Mademoiselle Bizarre” is a story of true romance and how it can triumph over all. It’s witty, well written (aside from a handful of little mistakes that could easily be fixed by a quick run-through by the author), and engaging. Overall, an awesome read.
story I was getting myself into. After I considered the fact that it was only 12 chapters long, I figured it wouldn’t hurt to take a peak. My longstanding grudge against historical stories was set aside soon after I finished the first chapter of this enchanting story.

Now having finished reading the story, I do like how the writing is simple like "Petals". I felt Lorraine's character needed to be a bit more stubborn with some fighting spirit against Glen's charisma. After all, she has a lot of guts to be able to dress like a man and get away with it. I just felt that with Glen knowing her flaws and weaknesses, he had an upper hand where Lorraine knew nothing about him except being a savage.
My French is horrible but it's lovely how you incorporated it in the story. It's cute and whimsical! Lovely story!

This is the second story of your's i've read. I found that "Petals" was a good story and while I enjoyed it...I liked the characters in this story a good deal better. However, this story seemed to lack a little bit of something. I'm sorry that I can't quite put my finger on it though. I still enjoyed reading it though, so thanks for putting your writing out there :)

I love all your stories! Lol. If you're wondering how I read them all in a single day, i didn't. I read them some time ago. I'm reviewing them today...lol.
I love Lor and Glen.
I wish I had a Glen.:)

"She didn’t need a man. Glen had never felt less like a man in his life."
XD Ok lol.
Now I definitly think I should read this...

Let see if undesrtand ; Glen's mother is metis and Glen's father is English. Glen has a sister, and lives near of the St Laurant.
Well I think you're very couragous to take such a demadning characterisation least ou personally know abouthese three cultures or are a very good googler. I hope you upheld it toughout the story.
Aside of that, the mix of English and French was very difficult to get in the frist paragraph.
And somehow, I notice that the style is more plain in this chapter than in any of Petals. Some part like he retorted, or he sais, are not very needed to undesrtand the dialog as well.
See ? Am I not whinny ? That's what I don't know if I should read this story. I'll just ramble and ramble about every french thing and indian culture.
For now, I shud up and go check on chapter two...
Still dunno if the story attracts me enough or not, yet, but I am relived (glad?) that the style has the same simplicity and clary from Petals.

This is by far, my favorite of your stories! So funny! And I really like the attraction between them - both of them were reluctant to admit it. I liked how they were both kind of "rough" around the edges, but had soft sides - like where he would watch out for her and she was secretly happy he was there.

Well written and fitting for Lorraine. Im happy that they worked it out in the end even if they did it just in the last scene. Well done. Well Beatrice Millard shot herself in her own leg with tossing that rumor out. Poor Great Aunt of hers... A good
I liked Lorraine, she is an interesting and engaging Character. Nice that we got to see a glimpse of Annabelle.
Good Story, well done.
