I never thought I’d be amused by a book that starts off with someone with HIV but I should have known that Katie MacAlister would find some kind of twist that would have me laughing. This midsummer night’s romp is so much more than just a romp between beds or tents. It’s about karma, intrigue, history and family. There’s even a hidden treasure and a secret tunnel! However, don’t expect the adventures or the romance to go off without a hitch because those hitches make this book one that you won’t put down. This book is part of A Matchmaker in Wonderland series but you don’t have to read the first book, The Importance of Being Alice, to thoroughly and completely follow and enjoy this book. They are totally different stories even though Alice and Elliot do make appearances in this one. This is the prefect book to spend time with on the beach or during a rainy day. It’s light heartedness will lift you up and keep a smile on your face. I can’t wait to meet the rest of the Ainslie family and see what else they can get into.
When Lorina learns her best friend has contracted HIV after an affair, she decides that it is her responsibility to prove to him that not only does he have HIV but he’s spread it. Going undercover as a photo journalist doing a book seems like the perfect plan until she meets Gunner Ainslie. Gunner is the brother of the baron who owns the castle that the archaeological dig is being done at. Gunner is also a professional photographer. It doesn’t take him long to determine Lorina isn’t who she says she is. But, what secrets is she keeping? And, why is she trying to cozy up to a man she isn’t attracted to?
Lorina Liddel is terrified of embarrassing herself on national TV as the face of Dig Britain!, a new archeological reality show. Lorina would much rather keep her head down and her hands in the dirt underneath Ainslie Castle, but her on-screen partner is proving to be a major distraction.
Brother to the castle’s current lord, privileged, perfectly sculpted Gunner Ainslie is a sure bet to keep viewers glued to their screens. Lorina intends to keep the ladies’ man focused on the job at hand, but Gunner is confident he’ll soon have the beauty falling into his bed.
When an unexpected find turns the academic dig into an all-out treasure hunt, Lorina and Gunner get swept up in the excitement. But when their steamy tryst is caught on camera, it’ll take more than an award-winning performance to get them out of the hole they’re in…
