Synopsis:

Set sail for love in this sparkling new adventure in #1 New York Times bestselling author Victoria Alexander’s Lady Travelers Society series.

Harry Armstrong has spent years in Egypt, recovering relics and disregarding rules. Now he’s back in England with a new title and a new purpose: penning his exploits. But his efforts are overshadowed by London’s favorite writer about Egypt—a woman they call The Queen of the Desert, of all things. Worse, her stories—serialized in newspapers and reprinted in books—are complete rubbish. 

Miss Sidney Honeywell didn’t set out to deceive anyone. It’s not her fault readers assumed her Tales of a Lady Adventurer in Egypt were real! Admitting her inadvertent deception now would destroy her reputation and her livelihood. But when the Earl of Brenton challenges her to travel to Egypt to prove her expertise, accompanied by his dashing, arrogant nephew, what choice does she have but to pack her bags?

With the matchmaking founders of the Lady Travelers Society in tow, Harry is determined to expose Sidney’s secret. But the truth might not be as great a revelation as discovering that love can strike even the most stubborn of hearts.

My Thoughts:

This is another winner in Victoria Alexander’s Lady Traveler’s Guide series.
Humor and adventure abound in this and the other previous books.
Sidney and Harry make a great couple even though they start out at odds.
With little old ladies of the interfering sort and a couple who make you believe love can occur even under the worst circumstances this is another must read by this author.
I gave this book 4.5 of 5.0 stars for storyline and character development.
I received a complimentary digital ARC of this book from the publisher to read. This in no way affected my opinion of this title which I read and reviewed voluntarily.

Synopsis:

Join the Lady Travelers Society in their latest romantic misadventure, from #1 New York Times bestselling author Victoria Alexander

She must secure her future

A lady should never be obliged to think of matters financial! But when Lady Wilhelmina Bascombe’s carefree, extravagant lifestyle vanishes with the demise of her husband, her only hope lies in retrieving a family treasure—a Renaissance masterpiece currently in the hands of a cunning art collector in Venice. Thankfully, the Lady Travelers Society has orchestrated a clever plan to get Willie to Europe, leading a tour of mothers and daughters…and one curiously attentive man.

He must reclaim his heritage

Dante Augustus Montague’s one passion has long been his family’s art collection. He’s finally tracked a long-lost painting to the enchanting Lady Bascombe. Convinced that the canvas had been stolen, he will use any means to reclaim his birthright—including deception. But how long before pretend infatuation gives way to genuine desire?

Now they’re rivals for a prize that will change everything

Willie and Dante know they’re playing with fire in the magical moonlit city. Their common quest could compromise them both…or lead them to happily-ever-after.

My Thoughts:

This series has been a joy to read to date.

There is just enough of a comical nature along with intrigue and romance to make the reader so involved they never want to put the book down.

The characters are well drawn and the storyline is both comical and intriguing. This has been a favorite series from book # 1 and I look forward for more to come.

Lady Wilhelmina Bascombe has lived a charming existence until the death of her husband revealed the true state of her financial situation. Now she is desperate to go to Italy to recover a painting her husband had borrowed funds on.

Dante Augustus Montague is also trying to recover this same piece of art. It belonged to his family and there is no record of it ever being sold or given away.
He intends to follow Willie to Venice to take possession of what rightfully belongs to him as part of his family heritage.

How will this comical tale of mystery and romance proceed?

I gave this book 4.5 of 5.0 stars for storyline and characterization and a sensual rating of 3.5 of 5.0 flames.

Sparks fly when these two come together.

As usual Victoria Alexander does not fail us with her witty and intriguing story and her ability to keep the reader absorbed.

I received a complimentary digital ARC of this book with invitation from the author via Netgalley to read. This in no way affected my opinion of this book which I read and reviewed voluntarily.

Synopsis:

Embark on the breathtaking romantic adventures of The Lady Travelers Society in the brand-new series by #1 New York Times bestselling author Victoria Alexander

Really, it’s too much to expect any normal man to behave like a staid accountant in order to inherit the fortune he deserves to support the lifestyle of an earl. So when Derek Saunders’s favorite elderly aunt and her ill-conceived—and possibly fraudulent—Lady Travelers Society loses one of their members, what’s a man to do but step up to the challenge? Now he’s escorting the world’s most maddening woman to the world’s most romantic city to find her missing relative.

While India Prendergast only suspects his organization defrauds gullible travelers, she’s certain a man with as scandalous a reputation as Derek Saunders cannot be trusted any farther than the distance around his very broad shoulders. As she struggles not to be distracted by his wicked smile and the allure of Paris, instead of finding a lost lady traveler, India just may lose her head, her luggage and her heart.

My Thoughts:

Welcome to the first book in this delightful new series by Victoria Alexander. Be prepared to laugh out loud!

The premise of three little old ladies that are widowed and unwilling to ask for financial assistance from their families, bilking others of their age and generation out of their money may not be laughable on the surface, but these three characters make it hilarious.

I loved this funny and touching novel that begins with the supposed disappearance of India Prendergast’s fifty-something year old cousin who has recently embarked on a journey after joining the ranks of the Lady Travelers Society.

India suspects not only fraud, but possible mayhem and that Derek Saunders is behind it all.

Derek Saunders has absolutely nothing to do with the Lady Travelers except that he has discovered that his favorite elderly aunt has come up with the concept that he fears may be fraudulent and frankly quite illegal.
He becomes involved because he is trying to save his aunt and her friends from possible charges of fraud.
What starts out as a relationship of the suspicions of two seemingly incompatible people turns into a love for the ages with three little old ladies telling themselves they are responsible for the ultimate results.

This book is quite a laughable romp. With a frankly staid heroine and a roguish hero and a group of comical cast, how could you go wrong.

I truly loved both the storyline and the characterization and gave this book 4.75 of 5 stars.
There is a underlying sensual nature to this story so it gets 3.75 of 5 flames.

I received a complimentary digital ARC of this book from Harlequin Books, the publisher via NetGalley to read.
This in no way affected my opinion of this book which I have read and reviewed voluntarily.

A Brief Note:

Sorry I have more or less been MIA the last week. I had an accident last Monday and fell on my porch. No broken bones but many bruises and a bad sprain that I’m still trying to get over.

Happy Holidays to all no matter how you celebrate.
