A great light-hearted romp through Regency England. I love the way the hero gets his comeuppance by having his make-believe wife show up.
Great book, lots of good dialog and laughs. My only complaint is the ending is kind of to tidy but it is well worth the read. This is part of a great regency series.
This book is about a man that invents a wife to keep other women away, but finds a woman in his bedchamber that says she is is wife. It is a very interesting book and keeps you in suspense all the time. It keeps you smiling at the escapades she gets into.
Regency romance - Baron Sedgwick invents a fiancee to keep the mamas of the ton off his back.But then Emmaline, his non-existent fiancee, shows up at his townhouse & takes over his world.
She charms his servants, his family, the ton, & finally him. Lighthearted, enchanting, romantic.
Great book. Had a fun time reading the book. Not able to put it down.
This book was a stretch but good for a quick read.
Great story! Written proof of one lie leading to another and how impossible it is to get out of them once they start. Suprise ending that will make the whole book even better!
historical novel, very amusing, very easy reading
Funny, lively can't put down
Another great one by Elizabeth Boyle. Very funny and very sweet.
I read the last three books in this series first and always thought I should go back and read from the start. Disappointed! I did not like this story much. I really did not like the heroine and thought he seemed like a pushover. I guess the description of a man being dull and stuffy isn't the stuff romantic fantasies are made of. And without giving away the book, I thought her back story was pretty unappealing. I agree with another reviewer, that the ending was very pat. I am glad I read the other books first because if I'd read this first, I probably would never have read any further!
I liked this book, it was cute and sweet and funny, it serves him right for making up a wife. They cant get angry at one another for lying becuase they are both lying about his "wife". this book is light and quick to get through and although i have not enjoyed everything by this author i would recommend this book to any historical romance fan
The Bachelor Chronicles is a wonderful series.
Alexander Denford has the perfect wife. The fact that Lady Emmaline Denford is a mere figment of his imagination is, naturally, the primary reason for her perfection. Five years earlier, in an effort to stave off hordes of matchmaking mothers, the baron invented his fictitious wife. So far the arrangement has worked wonderfully, allowing Alex to lead the kind of orderly (though some would say dull) life he favors. But when bills for goods ordered by Lady Denford suddenly start appearing, Alex sets off for London, where he discovers his "wife." This Emmaline is nothing like the quiet, nondescript woman he imagined; she is bold, beautiful, and all-too tempting. Even so, Alex intends to send the meddling minx packing, but Emmaline has other ideas. With a deliciously tart sense of wit and whimsy and a wickedly elegant style, RITA Award--winning author Boyle fashions another lusciously romantic, completely irresistible literary confection.
