Overview

"One of the finest and most delightful writers in romance." –Mary Jo Putney

The traditional Regency classic from New York Times bestseller Loretta Chase is back…

A Comedy of Manners…
Her father’s prodigal ways have forced the extremely lovely Alexandra Ashmore into an engagement with a strange man in a strange land: a man blind to the effect her unearthly beauty has on other men, and which has earned her the title "the English Witch"! So when she’s kidnapped by another love-struck suitor, Alexandra assumes she’s truly doomed to a loveless marriage with her captor.

A Villain Redeemed…
But her troubles have only begun—for although she's quickly rescued, her brave 'hero' is the notoriously irresistible, unrepentant scoundrel, Basil Trevelyan, who finds himself quite taken with the tart, spirited Alexandra. So taken, in fact, that he’s determined to make her his own. Now, if he can only charm her into agreeing with his plan!

Editorial Reviews

Library Journal
Chase has heeded the call and given Basil Trevelyan, the nonvillainous villain of Isabella ( LJ 10/15/87), his own story. After completing three years of exile in India and Greece, Basil is asked by his aunt, Lady Bertram, to rescue goddaughter Alexandra Ashmore from an unwanted marriage to her father's assistant. Her father, Sir Charles Ashmore, is an archaeologist working in Albania. What ensues is a comedy of manners as the beautiful, bewitching Alexandra and handsome Basil behave like Beatrice and Benedick. Their dialogue is witty but not especially zippy, and plot disappears mid-way. Basil deserves better; still, the novel is much better than most of its genre.Paula M. Zieselman, M.L.S., Debevoise & Plimpton, New York

Meet the Author

After a heroic attempt to be an English major forever, Loretta Chase stoically accepted her degree but kept on reading and writing. As well as working in academe, she had an enlightening if brief life in retail and a Dickensian six-month experience as a meter maid. In the course of moonlighting as a corporate video scriptwriter, she succumbed to the charm of a producer, who lured her into writing novels -- and marrying him. The union has resulted in what seems like an awful lot of books and quite a few awards, including the Romance Writers of America’s Rita. Heralded as “…the long awaited successor to Georgette Heyer” by Library Journal, Loretta Chase’s historical romance novels have been published all over the world.

    Top Notch Traditional Tension

    This was only Chase's second romance, yet she already showed a rare talent for "promoting" a secondary character/villain to hero status. Three years after being packed off to India, Basil Trevelyan is somewhat ashamed over his dastardly actions in Isabella, has gained a lot of useful experience in solving problems, and is considerably richer. But he's still delightfully devious and witty--a state of affairs that does him no good at all when he falls in love for the first time, but which is certainly enjoyable for us. Basil has no trouble at all dealing with the tangled situation of Alexandra Ashmore, who is burdened by too many fiances, none of whom she wants; it's convincing her that he's husband material that's the tricky part.

    I love Basil -- he's almost up there with Georgette Heyer's amiable snake Randall, from _Behold, Here's Poison_ -- and I loved watching him fall. I'm not entirely sure Alexandra is good enough for him, but at least she appreciates him. This is a "traditional" Regency -- i.e., no sex -- but the tension is awesome.

    Charming story

    Liked the story. Loved the fact that it wasn't full of 20 page descriptions of XXX sex. Dialog was sort of stilted and off putting.

    Absolutely adorable!

    This was such a fun book. Basil is the kind of rake I love to read about - witty, smart and devilishly adorable. He and Alexandra made the best couple I've read in ages.
    Recommended read!

    Great Story

    Isabella is the book and story line that comes before this book. It may be helpful to read it first although I think this one is much better.
