Tuesday, July 5, 2016

Terribly Improper
Lady Amelia is fed up with being a proper lady and wishes to explore London, so one night she escapes . . . and finds herself in the company of one Alistair Finlay-Jones. He’s been ordered by his uncle to wed one of the American girls. How lucky, then, that one of them stumbles right into his arms!

Totally Scandalous
Alistair and Amelia have one perfect day to explore London, from Astley’s Amphitheater to Vauxhall Gardens. Inevitably they end up falling in love and making love. If anyone finds out, she will be ruined, but he will win everything he’s ever wanted.

Very Romantic
When Amelia finds out Alistair has been ordered to marry her, he must woo her and win back the angry American girl. But with the threat of scandals, plural, looming . . . will he ever catch up to the woman he loves?

Goodreads Summary

This is an ideal book to take on vacation or to a nice day at the beach.  Lady Amelia decides to have a night of fun and lands in Alistair's view.  Alistair has alternative motives that Amelia knows nothing about.  Amelia isn't too pleased when she discovers that Alistair wasn't exactly "throwing caution to the wind," but that he had a different plan than hers.  Alistair, on the other hand, thinks it's a good match and intends to marry her-angry or not!

Amelia was definitely a feisty character.  I liked how the author reviews to her as the "angry American girl" in the summary because that is so hilariously true.  She gave Alistair a run for his money.  Alistair was not the perfect gentleman, but I liked knowing that he intended to do right by Amelia.  I liked the snappy, fun dialogue between the two of them and felt that their characters really moved the plot along.
