Review by Publishers Weekly Reviews

Alexander's Millworth Manor crew (The Scandalous Adventures of the Sister of the Bride) is in for a treat in the person of one Jackson Quincy Graham Channing, whose orderly life plan is thrown into some disarray by an unexpected family connection. Seems that Jack is the long lost—American—son of Col. Basil Channing and heir to the—British—Briston family fortune. Not that he needs the title or the money: he's also the heir apparent to the Graham, Merryweather, and Lockwood financial empire. In England, Jack becomes acquainted with his overseas kin and meets his intellectual and romantic match in the form of Lady Theodosia Winslow. No Alexander romance is complete without her trademark droll banter, charming characters, and well-placed plot twists, and Jack and Teddy are two of her all-time finest creations. She pays far more attention to dialogue than forward movement of the plot, but Regency romance fans who are in it for the gowns and merriment will be thoroughly entertained. (Nov.) [Page ].

Review by Publisher Summary 2

Jackson Channing travels to England to meet the family whose existence he has just discovered and enters into a fake engagement with Lady Theodosia Winslow, a family friend, that both of them come to wish was real.

Review by Publisher Summary 3

The bride and groom cordially request your presence for a wedding at Millworth Manor. . .

Guests will include Jackson Quincy Graham Channing, New York City banker, and Lady Theodosia "Teddy" Winslow, wedding planner to the finest families in England.

Introductions shall be followed by light conversation, dancing, flirtation, arguing, reconciliation, and an impulsive kiss that both parties are quite certain they will never repeat.

Until they do.

A mutually beneficial fake engagement will be accompanied by all manner of very real complications, scandalous revelations, nefarious schemes, and one inescapable conclusion:

That true love--unlike the perfect wedding--is impossible to plan. . .

Praise for Victoria Alexander
