Overview

Impossible!

Colin Oliver, Viscount Sutton, left his beloved Cornwall for London to find a bride&#8212some comely, proper, wellborn lady to bear him an heir. Certainly not someone like Madame Alexandra Larchmont. Yes, she's the toast of the ton, and a rare beauty to be sure. But she's also a fortune-teller. And Colin has an excellent reason for keeping a sharp watch on this one . . .

The cards have warned Alexandra for years about a dark-haired stranger who would wreak havoc with her life, so when she sees him at a soiree, her first thought is to run. Unfortunately, she overhears a murder plot, and the only person she can turn to for help is a man she knows she should stay away from, a man who eyes her with an undisguised hunger.

But fate's strange turns are Alexandra's stock in trade. And if love is written in the cards, surely nothing is impossible!

    Extremely well done!

    Colin Oliver, Viscount Sutton, left his countryside estate in Cornwall for London. Recently, Colin has been having the feeling of impending doom. Recalling that his own mother died at the same age he currently is, Colin decides it is time to find a bride and provide heirs for the family line. Thus the unwanted, but necessary, trip to London is done. What Colin does not expect is to find a face from his past. Madame Alexandra Larchmont may be the most sought after fortune teller for all the Society parties lately, but four years ago she had been a thief who tried to pick his pockets. Since the night she escaped him, Colin feared for the unknown girl's fate. The question now is whether she has really changed her ways or if she is using her talent of reading cards to gain entry into the homes of the upper crust. ================== The cards have warned Alexandra for years about a certain man that would enter her life and turn it upside down. Yet she never expects to see him at a London soiree. In trying to slip away unnoticed, she ends up overhearing an assassination plot. Trying to stay out of danger, but unable to sit by and do nothing, Alexandra leaves the host of the party an anonymous letter, explaining what she had overheard. Later, when Alexandra learns the host has been murdered, she rightfully fears for her own life. The only person she can turn to is Lord Sutton. It does not seem as though the gentleman recalls their encounter four years ago, but the longer she stays in his presence, the higher the odds that he will remember her. Even worse, the man may figure out just how much she yearns for his touch. =============== ***** Author Jacquie D'Alessandro has yet to disappoint me with any of her romantic and suspense filled tales. Until the unlikely day occurs of D'Alessandro suddenly getting writer's block so badly that she totally flops in story telling (Heaven Forbid!), I will remain one of her biggest fans. Once again, all the characters in the story are very well developed and totally believable. The main and secondary characters are so detailed that each seem to have their very own personality and little quirks. I not only came to care for the main characters, but also all the secondary and a few of the background characters as well. (Little Robbie is a perfect example.) Wimpy, fainting, and useless females need not apply to be in any D'Alessandro novel. The same can be said for stiff, recherché, and boring men. Excellent and highly recommended reading! *****

    A fabulous nineteenth century tale

    Every hostess amongst the Ton wants the great fortuneteller Alexandra ¿Madam¿ Larchmont to provide ¿entertainment¿ to their guests. However, at a particular gala she notices Viscount Colin Oliver and fears he will reveal who she really is. Four years ago, he caught her trying to pickpocket his watch.-------------- Colin knows who she is as he has not forgotten the beautiful thief who he is very attracted to. He says nothing about her past, but has her read his fortune. He is stunned and wary when she mentions that the cards say he is in danger as he expects to die soon. When they team up to save a friend from harm, they cannot resist their growing attraction to one another and quickly become lovers. However, Alexandra knows his cards and hers so tries to win what she can from her beloved because betrayal and hurt are in the cards.--------------- NEVER A LADY is an amusing paranormal historical romance that grips readers the moment that Madam Larchmont reading the fortune of Lady Miranda turns pale with the customer panicking that the fortuneteller has seen something bad. The story line never slows down as the audience knows its in the cards that this duo belongs together especially since Colin is a terrific counterpoint to the somewhat mischievous felonious Alexandra. Their amateur sleuthing augments a fabulous nineteenth century tale.------------------------ Harriet Klausner

    Awesome book!

    I thought this book was a great read. I couldn't put it down just like the first book in this series. Both characters had strong personalities and I immediately fell in love.

    I loved it

    Her style of writing is fresh and very believable. I liked the plot and the characters as well. I've been reading many books this summer and this one stuck out more so than others. I'd recommend this one to my friends and anyone who would like a GOOD romance book.
