The Daring Exploits of a Runaway Heiress by Victoria Alexander

To Do:
Swim naked in the moonlight
Play in a high stakes card game
Ride an elephant
Be painted sans clothing.
Take a lover. . .

Lucy Merryweather has inherited a fortune--and her great-aunt's list of unfulfilled wishes. What better way to honor her memory than by accomplishing as many of them as possible?
And with Lucy's family an ocean away in New York, nothing stands in her way--if one ignores the private investigator hired to spy on her.

Yet Cameron Effington is infuriatingly difficult to ignore. . .

As a reporter, Cameron is always looking for a good story. An American heiress running rampant between Millworth Manor and Mayfair is the perfect subject. Not to mention captivating. And extremely kissable. And if Lucy believes he's a detective?
Well, the truth should never get in the way of a good story--or hinder delicious, impetuous passion. . .

Lovely story with a funny adorable duo.

The story and the plot have piqued my curiosity as it has been a long time since I've read a Victorian Romance. I was not disappointed. The reader follows an interesting heroine who has a mind on her own.
Lucy is charming and adventurous with a bit of a temper. Perfect to make you smile.
Cameron has make me frown. He is cute as a pie but he reacts like a stuffy old man. Worst, like a virgin! Not at all what you expect from a gentleman! Lol!

If the duo is cool, the story has some length. It's a little long in the beginning as well as at the end. In trying to build some suspense and anticipation, the author has made me sigh once or twice. But she has nice characters who have saved me from my impatience.

Nice read.


  1. Haha, doesn't he, as a gentleman, should act like that at all? But thank you for your review. I love reading regency romance books, and I'm liking her fiery attitude, so I'm going to check this one out after posting this. :D Happy weekend!

    1. Enjoy your Sunday Goldie! And have fun with this book if you read it!
