The problem is that the Earl will not let her out of his sight. How can she find the treasure when every time she wants to break free of her boring life he is there criticizing her?

Okay, I have to admit this story by Victoria Alexander has always been my favorite. I read it years ago when it first came out and fell in love with it all over again. When you start reading the book you feel a sense of seeing the characters come to life. I fell in love again with Lady Sabrina for she is a woman who will not succumb to the means of marrying a man for money. No, instead she fights with everything she can and will not let any man bring her down including the devastating gorgeous Earl of Wyldewood. I loved it and can't wait for more of this talented author.

The perfect wife should be beautiful, trusting, and absolutely agreeable—or so the Earl of Wyldewood thought. But in New York Times bestselling author Victoria Alexander's intriguing tale, he finds that marriage is about more than mere appearances . . . When the Earl of Wyldewood meets Sabrina Winfield, he thinks he's found the ideal match. Graceful and genteel, the elegant blonde will look simply exquisite displayed on his arm. And a lady like Sabrina will undoubtedly occupy her time with proper matters, leaving him free to pursue his own pleasures . . . But beneath Sabrina's delicate beauty lies the most infuriatingly stubborn, wildly adventurous woman the earl has ever met. She's nothing like the perfect wife he had imagined. And before long, all he can think of is quieting her biting wit (with his kisses), putting an end to her outlandish schemes (with his own carefully planned seduction), and doing everything in his power to become the perfect husband.
