The bride and groom cordially request the presence of. . .

The bride's sister, Delilah, the very proper widowed Lady Hargate, and Samuel Russell, the groom's friend, a very eligible, slightly improper bachelor, at their upcoming wedding.

The lady plans to avoid love and its complications at all costs.The gentleman intends to change her mind.

Guests are invited to enjoy the many diversions of Millworth Manor--delightful grounds, lavish drawing rooms, secluded corners--and the chance to discover that one night may have been only the beginning. . .

4.0 étoiles sur 5 What a Great Book 29 avril 2014
Par Shauni - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format:Format Kindle
Originally reviewed for Bodice Rippers, Femme Fatales and Fantasy

What a great book! The Scandalous Adventures of the Sister of the Bride is book Three in Victoria Alexander's Millworth Manor Series and like all Ms. Alexander's work it's unique and fun.

The title alone grabs you doesn't it? And even more so when you realise that the Sister involved is the epitome of all that is proper. But sometimes all that proper is hiding something.

Delilah, the very proper widowed Lady Hargate, wanted an adventure. For once she wanted to slip the bounds that held her tied to propriety and experience life. A trip with her sister to New York seemed just the thing. And when she met the very dashing assistant to Mr Moore, she thought this was it. A chance to be wild. So "Mrs. Hargrove" and a clandestine evening with "Mr. Moore" and that was it.

Samuel Russell a self made and very respected businessman, met the "slightly impoverished, distant relative" of his best friend's fiance and was instantly attracted. "Mrs. Hargate" mistook him for his assistant and he was quirky enough to let it slide, if it made her feel more at ease, who would it hurt? Instant attraction turns into something more and while he wishes she wanted more he respects her wishes to not see each other again.

Fast forward four months to the wedding of the century...Sam shows up to his best friend's wedding only to discover that Mrs. Hargate is really Lady Hargate and she's not the impoverished anything, she's the bride's sister. Who really wants to keep him delegated to the past. If only she really believed that all that doth protesting too much.. But Sam understands her stance if not her feelings and tries to respect her wishes, he really does. Except dealing with her is just too much fun.

You have to feel for Delilah, she has spent her entire life as the unwanted sister (to her beautiful older twin sisters). So she has made herself into the practical, dutiful daughter. She even managed to fall in love with the "perfect" husband her mother found for her. And he too rejected the real Delilah and only wanted the "perfect" shell. So one can understand her feelings about love. It's painful and not to be trusted.

Ms. Alexander does a wonderful job of sharing the story of rock meeting hard place. Delightfully strong characters without being strident or overbearing. Just two people who belong together and have to figure it out for themselves.

Excellent job!

4.0 étoiles sur 5 Excellent hero 5 mai 2014
Par TracyJane - Publié sur Amazon.com

While I loved Sam. Delilah was much harder to warm up to.

Delilah was a bit off putting in the previous book and stayed true to form in this book as well. She is attracted to Sam and does her best to convince both herself and Sam that the are totally wrong for each other.

It wasn't until about halfway though the book that the reader begins to understand why she acts the way she does. And even when I understood - I still found her to be annoying and ridiculous.

I was a bit disappointed with Sam near the end as well - he just quit (not that I blame him) but this is a romance novel and I expected more from him. Rest assured, it all works out in the end. But not until the VERY end.

I wouldn't say this is one of my favorite Victoria Alexander books and it isn't a keeper. But the writing is excellent and the banter between the characters is very amusing. I don't regret reading the book and look forward to Teddy's story.

4.0 étoiles sur 5 Another great addition to the series 7 juillet 2014

A true delight. I love the Millworth Manor series. This story focuses on Delilah, the youngest sister, who in prior stories has been a bit of a pill--overly moralistic and not a likable kind of person. Delilah has a one night stand while in NY, thinking she will never again encounter the amazing American she is so attracted to. Turns out, however, the H Sam is actually very close friends and business partners with Delilah's soon-to-be brother-in-law. Sam shows up for the wedding and the sparks still fly between him and Delilah.
Delilah, however, cannot trust her heart and her judgment. She was married once before and fell in love with her husband who just could not love her in return. Some reviewers found Delilah annoying and a snob for wanting a "perfect" husband. That was not her motivation, however. Delilah was burned badly and very hurt, so she was wanting someone with whom she would not fall in love. And she knew from the intensity of her attraction to Sam that she was in grave danger of losing her heart. The story focuses on her fighting her growing love for Sam and her coming to realize that she was ready to take a chance again and that Sam truly loved her.
I liked the story because it showed both the H and the h coming to grips with prior bad relationships and their willingness to move on. Sam was far more likable but that was because he was idealistic and optimistic and willing to take another gamble on love. Delilah needed to be brought to that realization, and to wake up to the opportunity to seize love and grow in her life.
The story dealt with well with the growing relationship between the sisters. I found it a very touching tale.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 anything by Victoria Alexander is a very good read.and most of her work is much better than just good its mostly great 12 juin 2014

This is a great book,as most of Alexander's books are. The conversation back and forth between the two principal characters in this book is great, and it adds to the enjoyment of the book. The characters in the book are really loveable. In fact all her people are wonderful characters. Delilah is British, and she is Traditional and Samuel is an American,and a modern man. It takes place in 1887. It involves a horseless carriage,which he is very in favor of, and which she thinks nothing can be as great as a horse. It is a fun book and it is hard to put down. I highly recommend this book to all who are looking for a very good read.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 I always preorder the books in this series, 23 mai 2014

I always preorder the books in this series, she has not let me down yet. I wasn't sure whether the hero was going to be to my liking since he wasn't the typical English type I was used to reading in her books. He exceeded all expectations. Delilah was a wonderful surprise since I wasn't sure what kind of sister she was from reading the other books. I loved her and and was so glad that she and Sam got their HEA. A fun read.
