I thought this was a great story with a witty twist. Alex thought he was so smart tricking everyone into believing he was married but was knocked over when his scheme took on a life of its own - with a little help of course!

In 1801 every male in the Ton envies Baron Sedgewick, Alexander Denford, for having the perfect wife. His compliant spouse Emmaline makes no demands on Alex and even allows him to gamble and have affairs while she rusticates. She is such a paragon to the jealous men, but only Alex knows that Emmaline does not exist; he made up this ideal woman to keep matchmakers and mamas away from him.--- His beloved octogenarian grandma reads a gossip note from the Post and Times about Lady S seen shopping in town. Bills arrive from Lady S to pay for all types of female garb. Stunned that someone somehow learned and is using his ploy Alex races to London to confront Lady S. When he sees her in his bedroom, instead of tossing her out Alex wants to toss the clever con artist on his bed to make love today, tomorrow and forever though he fears she will steal his silverware.--- This is an amusing brisk Regency romance starring two wonderful protagonists whose debates are filled with double entendres and puns. The story line takes off the moment that Alex realizes someone has personalized his brilliant strategy to fleece him. Emmaline is unique protagonist, a likable kindhearted con artist. Their pairing leads to a one sitting read by this humorous Boyle gender war.--- Harriet Klausner

This is book #1 of The Bachelor Chronicles. It is the story of Alexander Denford, Baron Sedgwick, and Emmaline. Alexander is a gentleman to be begrudged. His lives his life or comfort and satisfaction with a devil-may-care attitude. His dearest wife Emmaline is the one individual he has to thank for his ideal, well arranged way of life. She never cares about his late nights out or his mistresses. His friends are all green with envy, but they don't know the truth behind it all. Emmaline does not even exist. She was conveniently made up to keep his family, especially his Grandmother, out of his personal business and to deter them from their matchmaking. But when he starts getting bills from London for lots of female trappings like clothes, shoes and hats, he realizes something is unquestionably wrong. Emmaline has been conning the upper class for years. So pretending to be Emmaline isn't hard to accomplish for the newly arrived Lady Sedgwick . Emmaline shows up on his doorstep desiring entry into good society. She wreaks havoc with his household and his heart. She has way of making him want to be the husband she warrants. Of course, this is all against Alexander's course of thought. Will her intense sensuality and spirit make it impossible to resist? Will she become his perfect love as well as his actual bride? Can he become the husband he has never wanted to be? I really enjoyed Emmaline & Alexander's story. It was fun, fast paced, and very entertaining. Will be trying to find the other stories in the series to read.
