Desires of a Perfect Lady is no typical historical romance set in ballrooms in Bath or London.
Instead our heroine, Lady Olivia Rathbourne, is sent on a quest to gather
some artifacts which her late husband had always wanted in his
collection. But Olivia isnít alone - her childhood love, the Earl of Wyldewood, feels
responsibility for her and tags along.
doesn't threaten for more than one or two moments,
despite the complex travels of our hero and heroine. Author Victoria Alexander
focuses much more on the troubled past between Olivia and
Sterling (yet another chap called Sterling in a historical romance; Iím
not sure that was ever actually a name for men at that time) as they
try to overcome their respective disappointments with each other.
Although aspects of the plot rather stretch credulity, Desires of a Perfect Lady is
overall an enjoyable read.
