The Scandalous Adventures of the Sister of the Bride by Victoria Alexander

The Scandalous Adventures of the Sister of the Bride by Victoria Alexander.

This is book 3 in the Millworth Manor series.

Lady Delilah Hargate, a widow, has just spent an amazing night with a man that she has just met. Being half way across the world means that she can forget about her adventure and return to England where she will go about finding that perfect spouse. Unfortunately for Delilah, she can't stop thinking about it, She soon learns that her one night stand has ended up in England and has no desire for her to forget about their amazing night together. 

Samuel Russell can't seem to get Delilah out of his mind. When he ends up in England on business, he decides to show up early for his friend's wedding. It doesn't hurt that he might get to spend more time with the woman that has taken over all of his thoughts.

Delilah can't believe that Sam has shown up for the wedding. She thought he was just a clerk or some other employee. She never imagined that he was the boss and really good friends with her future brother-in-law. If she had known that there was any chance she would see him again, she wouldn't have had an adventure with him.

Sam is surprised to learn that Delilah is Lady Hargate and not just Mrs. Hargate. She also happens to be the sister of his best friend's fiancee.  But for Sam, that changes nothing.  He wants get to know Delilah better, but she thinks they are too different from each other.  Can they work out their differences for the chance of true love?

Loved, loved, loved this story.  Some of my favorite stories have characters that banter back and forth with each other and there is plenty of that between Delilah and Sam. We are introduced to Delilah in "What Happens at Christmas", but you really don't learn much about her other than the fact that she has not been very close to her older twin sisters. To try to rectify it, she acts as a chaperone for one of them while they travel to America on business. This is where all the fun begins.

I really liked the Sam character. He was a self-made man that wasn't afraid to go after what he wanted in business as well as in his personal life. It wasn't until Delilah had wore him down that he finally gave up the chase.  An unexpected person, shows Sam that he should never give up on what he wants and he quickly rectifies the situation.

I loved seeing characters from the previous novels and catching up with them.  The novel included a preview of the next book in the series and I CAN NOT wait to read it!!!

You can get this book at Amazon, Barnes & Noble and Books-A-Million.

Thanks go to Kensington Books via NetGalley for a copy of the book in exchange of an honest review.
