Love's Misadventure (2nd edition) is the first Amazon Best selling regency period novel in Cheri Champagne's Mason Sibling Series.
Miss Annabel Bradley refuses to accept life as a spinster. Her many years of pouring greedily over gothic novels has put her head in the clouds; dreaming and hoping for the love she reads about. She has always held a tendre for her best friend, Lane Mason, seventh Earl of Devon, but she does not want to jeopardize their friendship by telling him about those indecent dreams of hers. Anna, therefore, makes a life-changing decision; she is going to accept the proposal of the next suitor to ask!
Lane Mason is an average aristocrat; absorbed in life in general, and content with his status in society. Amid a frequently occurring moment of self-loathing, Lane shockingly discovers his feelings for Anna. Now armed with the awareness of his love for Anna, Lane decides to perpetrate a devilishly clever scheme. He will pay actors to abduct the two of them in order to give Anna an adventure like the ones she reads in her treasured books.
Lane's plans go awry, however, when they are kidnapped in truth.

Reviewed by Michelle Randall for Readers' Favorite Lane and Anna had grown up as neighbors, his family estate bordered her family estate. They had played together since childhood and were best friends. He was the only man to understand her love of reading. Anna had always secretly hoped that Lane would develop deeper feelings for her, but at the advanced age of twenty-five, she felt she was all but lost for a spinster. Lane had his own problems, fearing that he would never be able to have a family of his own, so he ignored his feelings towards Anna. As Anna decides to marry the next suitable bachelor, Lane vows to give her an adventure. The problem is that other factors are at work here and the adventure that Lane plans for Anna turns into a real kidnapping, among other things. Love's Misadventure (The Mason Sibling Series) by Cheri Champagne follows Lane and Anna, along with the rest of the Bradley and Mason families, as they tumble through adventures and blackmail, each hiding secrets that if they only had voiced would have prevented most of the troubles. Author Cheri Champagne gives the reader a historical yet humorous story filled with mystery, intrigue, and romance. Love's Misadventure is the first book in the Mason Sibling Series, so we meet all the Mason family in this book, Lane and his younger sisters, and learn bits about them, but not too much yet - just enough that you are encouraged to look forward to the next book that will involve one of them. The Mason and Bradley families are intertwined tightly and yet that makes it even more real and fun. Author Cheri Champagne not only gives you romance and adventure, but there is humor and real life, keeping secrets only making things worse and love prevailing. This is a great read for any historical novel buff.
There were times when I could not put this book down. For a romance novel there is a lot of adventure in it. Everything seemed to work from page to page. A damned good first novel. I highly recommend it.
