Review: LADY ALEXANDRA’S EXCELLENT ADVENTURE by Sophie Barnes

About the book:

It’s going to be a wild ride . . .

Lady Alexandra Summersby is not your average society miss. Not only is she more likely to climb a tree than she is to wear a dress, but she has also sworn off marriage. Alex loves taking chances, which is how she finds herself embroiled in a secret mission as she races across the country with the Earl of Trenton. But Alexandra is about to discover that the real danger lies not in duels, but in her completely unexpected reaction to Lord Trenton’s company.

Michael Ashford, Earl of Trenton, is a man of duty. Honorable, charming, and a hit with the ladies, he’s never had trouble staying focused—until now. Lady Alexandra is like no other woman he’s ever met, and suddenly the prospect of marriage seems far more appealing. Now, to convince Alexandra that a life together could be an adventure like no other . . .

I love historical romances with unusual settings and unusual characters. This book has the latter. Lady Alexandra, or as she prefers Alex, isn’t a typical heroine at all. She is vaulted as a fantastic swordsman, she has a brilliant mind, and she wears breeches instead of dresses. I love Alex. She is strong and knows what she wants – except when it comes to Micheal. Micheal is a pretty typical hero. He’s alpha and strong, thinks he knows what’s right for everyone, and is completely fulled by Alex’s appearance in the beginning. When their journey starts, Alex is pretending to be a man instead of a woman and Micheal falls for it. The story takes place in wartime France instead of ballrooms and is full of political intrigue. I really enjoyed the writing style – the dialogue flows well and the settings are described in detail. I can’t wait to read more by this author.
