Before there was a Lady Travelers Society, there was just one lady traveler...

Some marry for love. Some marry for money. But Violet Hagen's quick wedding to irresponsible James Branham, heir to the Earl of Ellsworth, was to avoid scandal.

Though her heart was broken when she learned James never wanted marriage or her, Violet found consolation in traveling the world, at his expense--finding adventure and enjoying an unconventional, independent life. And strenuously avoiding her husband.

But when James inherits the earldom it comes with a catch--Violet. To receive his legacy he and Violet must live together as husband and wife, convincing society that they are reconciled. It's a preposterous notion, complicated by the fact that Violet is no longer the quiet, meek woman he married. But then he's not the same man either.

Chasing Violet across Europe to earn her trust and prove his worth, James realizes with each passing day that a marriage begun in haste may be enjoyed at leisure. And that nothing may be as scandalous--or as perfect--as falling hopelessly in love. Especially with your wife.

Review quote

Alexander continues her celebration of multigenerational female bravado and intensifies the complexity of this delightfully over-the-top series through a fantastical Egyptian travelogue, and playfully praises the value of telling a good adventure tale through its imaginative, fiction-writing female lead. -Publishers Weekly on The Lady Travelers Guide to Deception with an Unlikely Earl, STARRED review

For love, laughter, and lots of fun, read Victoria Alexander. -Stephanie Laurens

Alexander celebrates the spirit of adventure, elevates dubious scheming with good intentions, and advocates for the yielding of judgement and practicality to hedonism and happiness. Readers will savor every page. -Publishers Weekly on The Lady Travelers Guide to Scoundrels and Other Gentlemen, STARRED review

Readers will immediately find themselves thoroughly disarmed by Alexander's deliciously droll wit and flair for clever characterization, both of which are on full display in this exceptional start to the author's sparkling new Lady Travelers Society series -Booklist

Alexander has a marvelous ear for witty dialogue and creates winning characters. -Publishers Weekly

Alexander is now the go-to author for historical romance readers in search of love and laughter. - Booklist

Alexander is an original and so are her romances...Alexander fulfills readers' desires and then some. -RT Book Reviews
