Just her second book and already Loretta Chase's marvelous talent convincingly takes the villain from her first book and turns him into the reluctant hero here And what a delicious rogue he is The action ranges from his rescue of Arabella in Albania to the ballrooms of London to the English countryside Yes some of the action is rather unlikely and far too complicated to even try to summarize but LC keeps things moving and the reader enjoys going along for the rideThis book is the seuel to Isabella which is good but not great There are many characters who turn up in both books so for maximum enjoyment I recommend reading both in uick succession The Kindle versions are just 299

Of her dashing rescuer Basil Trevelyan From Albania to England the notorious cad pursues her determined to make her his own and setting Alexandra's world scandalously atilt in ways she never dreamed. Alexandra Ash is known as The English Witch all over Albania where her intense green eyes bewitch every man around Alexandra's archeologist Papa barely notices He wants her to marry the son of a his man of business a wealthy wool merchant Alexandra finds Randolph Burnham extremely boring She writes an impassioned plea to her godmother Lady Bertram back in London for help Lady Bertram dispatches her wayward nephew Basil Trevelyan to rescue Alexandra Basil has spent three wretched years in India paying his debts and making a profit He travels to Greece where he receives his Aunt Clem's letter When he arrives in Albania to discover that Alexandra has been kidnapped by one of her would be Albanian suitors Basil dashes in to rescue the lady only to be bewitched himself There's nothing to do but fake an engagement in order to persuade Alexandra's Papa to allow her to return to London instead of hurrying her off to Yorkshire to be married In London Alexandra is the guest of Lady Bertram and her friend Lady Maria Deverell Basil plays least in sight trying to return to his libertine ways Enter William Farrington Maruess of Arden a long time friend of Basil's and Bail's eual in debauchery Will takes one look at Alexandra and knows he has to posses her His aged parent is after him to marry so there's nothing to it but to woo and win Alexandra Then Alexandra is invited to a house party at Lord Hartleigh's along with Will his sister Jess and of course Basil Also in attendance are a number of unmarried young ladies falling prey to Basil's flirtatious charm Why should that annoy Alexandra so much Why can't she seem to succumb to Will's charm Further complications ensue when her father arrives determined to marry her off to Randolph no matter what Alexandra may have to sacrifice her dreams of love in order to save her family from scandalThis book starts off really strong The Albanian setting is very uniue The description is excellent It sounds as if the author did her research but she could have written any old thing and it would have sounded right The dialogue between the heroine and hero is witty The second section of the novel copies the plot of Isabella or less The third section is a comedy of errors worthy of Shakespeare I liked the first and third sections the best They were uniue and amusing than the middle part The middle part sort of drags on a bit too long The way Alexandra's problems are solved is predictable but funny There are a few surprises along the way though My biggest complaint is that the romance is uick off the ground with a true connection but then the witty dialogue gives way to kissing and longing We're told how the characters feel and how they can be comfortable with each other and why they're good for each other but most of the showing from the middle forward is in the form of physical attractionI loved the characters in this novel I disliked Basil in Isabella but he feels some remorse for what he did and in this story he gets a taste of his own medicine It's vastly amusing to watch Basil be out raked by his friend His jealously is very telling of his feelings for Isabella; feelings which take a long time to acknowledge He tries to go back to his old ways but finds he can't which is very telling He discovers that he wants to be with someone with whom he can argue and have lively conversation This says a lot about his character and how he has changed Alexandra is intelligent and level headed She's confident and manipulative in her own way Yet she doesn't see why all these men fall in love with her She turns into a watering pot in the middle of the story and doesn't stop I disliked that about her but I did admire her independence in wanting to solve her problems on her own The chemistry between the hero and heroine sizzles There are a few scenes with rather intense kissing than I would have liked The heroine nearly allows herself to be seduced I thought she was going to give in and that would have solved her problems sort of The secondary characters are very good also Will takes the place of the rake character He's just like Basil used to be I didn't like him much but he does make Alexandra's internal dialogue a bit funny as she contemplates his courtship techniues His sister Jess sounds like a great character She's very level headed I didn't uite understand why the gentleman with the title goes by his name when Basil is known as Trev The best characters are Maria and Aunt Clem I loved Maria in Isabella and here she has an even greater role She rouses herself from her chaise lounge to attend her daughter's house party She's still languid and finds anything too fatiguing but yet behind her facade she's a skilled manipulator I knew exactly what she and Aunt ClemLady Bertram were up to It should have been obvious to at least Isabella but it wasn't They're very funny in a sly subtle sort of way I think they'll set their sights on matchmaking for Will and Jess now It was great to catch up with Isabella and Hartleigh and their family Little Lucy is now 10 and just as chatty as ever She's a great gossip and will be a matchmaker when she grows up Uncle Henry also appears in this novel as skilled as ever at manipulating business affairs as well as personal affairs I love the Deverell Latham Trevelyan family and want of themThough this book is a seuel to Isabella it can be read on it's own I think Georgette Heyer would approve of the characters and most of the plot She wouldn't like the intense kissing scenes though from what I've read about Loretta Chase's newer books this is pretty tame
