Alexandra: A Sweet and Clean Historical Romance (Regency Chase Brides, Book 1) by Lauren Royal, Devon Royal

"Alexandra" is the SWEET & CLEAN ROMANCE edition of "Lost In Temptation" by Lauren Royal.
From a New York Times bestselling author and her daughter!

England, 1815: Alexandra Chase has always liked being the perfect daughter, thank you very much. Why would she bother chafing against society's restrictions when instead she could be basking in the warm glow of its approval? But when her brother's best friend--and secret obsession--returns from a long spell abroad, she begins losing interest in the suitable young lord she's expected to marry. Suddenly, family duty and a flawless reputation seem less important than the chance, however slight, that her girlhood crush might notice her now that she's all grown up...

Tristan Nesbitt has done some growing up himself over the last few years, what with moving across oceans, inheriting a title, and facing a devastating scandal. But through it all, he's never forgotten the Chases, the closest thing he had to a family back in his school days. When his old friend Griffin Chase requests a favor, he's happy to oblige, as long as he can maintain enough distance from the family that his infamous past won't tarnish their good name. Unfortunately, one Chase seems intent on getting much closer to him than she should...

This is a nice, sweet story that has been well thought out and nicely developed and is a bit of a mystery as an added bonus! The story does drag a bit now and then, but overall it is quite nice. I really liked that the ending wasn't abrupt and the ending rushed. A lovely, full length novel. Sure to please those who enjoy an historic love story with a mystery for added enjoyment. ***esk 01/30/2017***

I normally don't read romance novels because they get too descriptive sexually. This one was modestly written and full of surprises. The ending totally surprised me. A feel good book with twists and turns. Kept me from doing much but reading until I finished it. Good job.

I really loved this romance/suspense. Historicals are not my favorites, although I read them a lot & enjoy them, I personally prefer the present. This book kept me interested til the end, although I knew the culprit right away, but not the reason. This is 385 pages, good plot. GJRA
