"Lady Alexandra's Excellent Adventure" By: Sophie Barnes Review

Lady Alexandra's Excellent Adventure
"Lady Alexandra's Excellent Adventure"
By: Sophie Barnes

Synopsis from Good Reads:
It's going to be a wild ride . . .

     Lady Alexandra Summersby is not your average society miss. Not only is she more likely to climb a tree than she is to wear a dress, but she has also sworn off marriage. Alex loves taking chances, which is how she finds herself embroiled in a secret mission as she races across the country with the Earl of Trenton. But Alexandra is about to discover that the real danger lies not in duels, but in her completely unexpected reaction to Lord Trenton's company.
     Michael Ashford, Earl of Trenton, is a man of duty. Honorable, charming, and a hit with the ladies, he's never had trouble staying focused-until now. Lady Alexandra is like no other woman he's ever met, and suddenly the prospect of marriage seems far more appealing. Now, to convince Alexandra that a life together could be an adventure like no other . . 
My Thoughts:
    “Lady Alexandra's Excellent Adventure” is one of those books that you want to love, you strive to really, yet it falls just short of the mark for me. While at times interesting, Alexandra was just a little too bratty for my tastes and Michael just a little boring. The drama seemed forced and the characters didn’t react in realistic ways to one another. Not a favorite of mine, but for people who enjoy historical action romances, it may appeal to them. Maybe next time we'll connect Ms. Barnes!
