Review: His Mistress By Christmas By: Victoria Alexander

His Mistress by Christmas (Sinful Family Secrets, #1)His Mistress by Christmas by Victoria Alexander
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

In true Ms. Alexander style, you will find romance and humor within the pages. The likeability of characters, major and minor, the enjoyable situation/dilemma the characters face, and the nice outcome - bring this book together.

Lady Veronica Smithson is an independent woman. She values her independence and wealth. She also has no need for a husband, she had one -- but she finds herself in want of a man, not just any man, but, Sir Sebastian Hadley-Attwater. Sebastian is a world explorer, a writer, and a man with a certain reputation.

Veronica thinks she will be able to have her cake and eat it to but Sebastian has other plans- the plans to settle down. In a strange agreement they set off (with their own agendas) to the country, only to besieged by family members believing they are newly wed. Can they pull off the farce or will it become something so much more that needs no pretending?

A nice story to delve into, great characters, and wonderful dialogue (internal and external).
