More About the Author

For as long as she can remember, Katie MacAlister has loved reading. Growing up in a family where a weekly visit to the library was a given, Katie spent much of her time with her nose buried in a book. Despite her love for novels, she didn't think of writing them until she was contracted to write a non-fiction book about software. Since her editor refused to allow her to include either witty dialogue or love scenes in the software book, Katie swiftly resolved to switch to fiction, where she could indulge in world building, tormenting characters, and falling madly in love with all her heroes.

Two years after she started writing novels, Katie sold her first romance, Noble Intentions. More than thirty books later, her novels have been translated into numerous languages, been recorded as audiobooks, received several awards, and placed on the New York Times, USA Today, and Publishers Weekly bestseller lists. She also writes for the young adult audience as Katie Maxwell.

Katie lives in the Pacific Northwest with her husband and dogs, and can often be found lurking around online.

Format: Mass Market Paperback
Last fall, I stepped into a hole in the back yard and twisted my knee. At the time, that was so painful, I did not notice I cracked open the sternum of my ribcage. I woke in great pain during the night and had to be rushed to hospital. The immediately solution was stuff me into a corset to where I could not breath - crushing my ribcage. Surprisingly, you get "sort of" used it as the weeks pass, but you really are amazed at the women that lived their whole lives in that fashion. It's small wonder they swooned!
So, recalling how bad it hurt to laugh with a corset, I am eternally grateful that Katie Macalister waited until I was out of the bloody thing to release the Corset Diaries. Had I read this while trussed up like a turkey, I would have been in serious trouble! I would so hate to have my demise on Ms. Macalister conscience! And I fear that would have been the result. This book is just such a howl.
Katie's is a brand of humour that makes one feel good. It's a special gift. Her books won't change the world, solve the rain forest problem or go down into the history of literature, but they are sheer fun. And this one is another special gem from a very talented writer.
It's a funny, witty, sexy, Benny Hill - Monty Python bawdy romp. Some people don't get Brit humour, so they miss all the fun. Sorry for them. The rest of us shall delight in this tale of Tessa, a less than stunningly perfect, 39-year-old who takes on the chore of acting the role of Duchess for a week, corset and all. Frankly, I felt for Tessa when her heart goes pitter-patter over her leading man Max - her "Duke". Rapid breaths in steel stays is just dangerous! Its wickedly sly dialogue charms us as "Duchess" Tessa adjusts to life as it was over a century ago.

This was my first macalister read, and it would normally not be my pic (I'm a historical girl at heart) but the blurb sounded interesting and it was recomended so I purchased it. Wow! what a good choice. It is funny, very well written and with sexy romantic bits as well. You just want to eat the men in her book for breakfast lunch and tea.
Its also great to have a lead female charater who is not slim and perfect, some of her body observations will have you chuckling particularly if you are a bit 'skinny challenged' too.
Top marks, great book.

Tessa who admits to being "skinny-challenged" is a last min replacement ona reality TV show titled 'A month in the life of a victorian duke' andthus has to wear a corset as per the title. Max the guy playing the partof the duke is as hansome as they come but Tessa does not get off to agood start with hilarious results.
Tessa is a fantastic heroine, veryreal and believable, she's in her late 30's and plump but you don't havethe usual turning into a swan thing writers often do, she is herself andloveable and humorous and determined to get her man.
The book is thebest Katie Macalister book so far.
It is also very very very funny.

Amazon don't give you the option of no stars by which I would've rated this book. I know you need to suspend disbelief sometimes but this story was so unbelievable my eyes got a great deal of rolling practice. I am a former TV producer and I tell you there is no possible way they could have accepted this pathetic, loser of a woman to play a Duchess in a TV series depicting life in Victorian times. Anyone could have - and would have - done it better. The American heiresses who married into the British aristocracy would have behaved very differently to the heroine of this book whose speech was far from Victorian - she actually called men "guys" .. in the 1870's! And the director on the series never turned a hair .. the things that happened would have scuppered any chance of it appearing on British television. The British characters all spoke Americanisms and how on earth the so-called intelligent architect fell in lurve with this silly, accident-prone, quite crazy woman defies any logic. I suppose it is just a question of individual taste but as you;ve guessed, I disagree with those who rated this book so highly. Sorry, this has put me off any of this author's books.
