story never really caught my attention to begin with, but the book was new and the thought of wasting the money without at least trying it didn t make senseSo needless to say as you can tell I didn t find the book in the least bit interesting and I wouldn t recommend it to my fellow goodreads friends First of all, let me say that you can hardly go wrong with Victoria Alexander But to get down to the specifics of why I liked this particular book so much 1 A three fold story line Our hero heroine are not in the first blush of youth they meet when their grown children fall in love and the in

in the first blush of youth they meet when their grown children fall in love and the in laws are introduced Among the in laws is a spectacle wearing, overly educated maiden aunt trotted out to serve as chaperone to the youngsters when they are alone on a sea voyage, no less but SHE astonishes everyone including herself by catching the roving eye of the dashing American captain of the ship A great deal of fun ensues as the reader gets to watch all three couples navigate the rigors of both the sea voyage and true love 2 The love scenes And by that I mean the ridiculously over blown, extravagantly exaggerated explosions of passion that at one point caused me to actually laugh right out loud Seriously, if anyone out there has ever had sex this good, please write a how to guide You ll make millions 3 The fact that the heroine appears to recognize point number 2 above and routinely bursts into laughter after, er, well, engaging in point number 2 above and the hero is man enough to take it To illustrate, here is a bit of dialogue from the end of the tale Hero his voice rough with desire, of course , I suggest we find somewhere a bitprivate and, oh, saytell a few jokes Heroine heart beating with anticipation, also of course , I could certainly use a good laugh right now Couldn t we all, my lady, couldn t we all Widow turned smuggler turned proper society lady and mother

and Jack went from party to party.Belinda had her coming out and was already to be married to Erick Sabrina knew his father was known as quite a rake but his son seemed to love her daughter Nicholas Harrington had never forgotten the smugglers that had gotten away 10 years ago He was so close to catching them He was intrigued to find a woman was in charge and when she kissed him while he was blind folded, well he never forgot that either Now he was meeting the mother of his future daughter in law and found himself intrigued with her It felt so right dancing with her and being around her

daughter where or why Nicholas ends up following her on the boat to Egypt of all places.The quiet woman he met soon was found to have aadventurous side then he thought and the book leads from one adventure to another Their children soon follow them along with his sister.Another great read by Victoria Sabrina Winfield, Marchioness of Stanford, had at one time in her life had it all, or so she had thought Married young to a very debonair, adventurous, carefree rake, or rather reformed rake, Sabrina had led a life of freedom and adventure that most women never even dreamed of It suited her stubborn, independent nature very well, at least for a time She was the last person to have thought that there was such a thing as too adventurous or too wild, but this described her deceased husband perfe Sabrina Winfield, Marchioness of Stanford, had at one time in her life had it all, or so she had thought Married young to a very debonair, adventurous, carefree rake, or rather reformed rake, Sabrina had led a life of freedom and adventure that most women never even dreamed of It suited her stubborn, independent nature very well, at least for a time She was the last person to have thought that there was such a thing as too adventurous or too wild, but this described her deceased husband perfectly Maybe it wasMaybe irresponsible would have been aapt description She found even the infamous Lady Stanford had her limits However, as much as Sabrina had yearned to see a change in her husband and the lifestyle that they led, she never would have wished his death She was utterly in love with him when they married, as only a first love could be She, however, had grown and matured while her husband, Jack, remained tied to his youth After his death and the awful realization that he had made no provision for the care of her or their young daughter, in fact had left debts unpaid, Sabrina swore she would do whatever necessary to see that her daughter was not tainted in anyway by her or her husband s escapades and raised in ton society to become a proper young Miss Sabrina herself stayed true to her obligation to her daughter and became the epitome of the most proper widow That is, until her financially secure lifestyle quickly crumbled under the guidance of her very inept man of business However, as often happens, what seems a crisis at the moment can easily turn into the means to bring just the opposite, and Sabrina s crisis effectively shut the door on her so long lived life of boredom and perfect reserve Now all she has to do is guarantee her daughter s betrothal follows through to marriage while at the same time keeping her adventurous plans of an immediate treasure hunting trip to Egypt secret Oh, AND keeping her future son in law s father from any interference in her plans Although that will probably be easier said than done considering her rare, but passionate reaction to the man whenever he is near Well, she is an intelligent, strong willed woman who hasthan proved her success at trouncing the enemy So, let the games begin I love Victoria Alexander s heroines They are always such strong, witty women who arethan capable of fending for themselves in a man s world The heroine in The Perfect Wife is no different She actually goes a step beyond this by successfully leading men while conquering them at the same time A heroine of this caliber is always a treat when set in a story of Regency times because she outshines all around her She really was the center piece of this story and all else pivoted around her With witty banter and side splitting competition, I was never bored A very lively story with very entertaining supporting characters as well A solid 4 star read This book was actually only the second one Victoria Alexander wrote, but you won t be able to tell by reading it Aside from a few awkward scenes the whole let s go on a treasure hunt was a little random even with Sabrina s reasoning her story flow is top level I was surprised at how well she was able to juggle several side stories and multiple characters Usually I feel like I don t get to know the characters well enough when there isthan one love story

feel like I don t get to know the characters well enough when there isthan one love story happening at the same time, but I was able to get into each story and root for the characters And I loved how they all related to one another and interacted There isn t anything I lovethan a complicated cast Although, I will say that part of me wishes I hadtime with the secondary characters I could easily see a trilogy here instead of one book.Sabrina isn t your typical Victorian era heroine Instead of writing about a virginal maiden making her debut into society, Victoria tells the story of a grown woman who, according to society, is past her prime Don t let her age fool you though Sabrina actslike a teenager than a woman closing in on 40 The mother daughter relationship portrayed is also unusual for this genre, but greatly refreshing I love the banter between Sabrina and Belinda, even if at times they actlike sisters than mother daughter Think Gil Girls in the early 1800 s Nicholas is exactly the type of man to balance Sabrina s wild side He is arrogant, stubborn, and prideful There is nothingexciting in a book than two people who get on each other s nerves so much they end up falling in love I do think Nicholas fall could have had a littledepth to it I wanted to really see him start to admire Sabrina, not just lust after her If you re seeking adventure and romance, and don t mind overlooking a few minor flaws, look no further You ll fall in love with these characters and enjoy every twist and turn this treasure seeking tale has to offer.Reviewed by Cheeky Girl Lauren on

360 pagesthe perfect poolside book I didn t know that this would be an adventure story until I got into maybe chapter 2, especially since the summary on the back didn t mention anything of the sort, nor did the sexy flap to the cover suggest anything other than lots ofcanoodling Nevertheless, it made the story ridiculously enjoyable, lighthearted and fun I m glad I got it for like 3 This was a great book I loved the story btween the hero and heroine She turned out to be just what he was looking for They had plenty of verbal battles, which I love They also had a lot of passion when they made love I have not read many Victoria Alexander books because the ones that I chose were never really that good This book was nothing like those It was fresh and cute and definitely funny Good read. A retired female pirate, broke and in need of a quick buck, dons her former alias for one last lootin with a treasure map left by her deceased husband.What an ideally perfect Lady of the Manor the heroine appears to be, with her questionable past and the hero doesn t realize he knows her from somewhere else.
