In keeping with the title, Lady Amelia, announces to her husband Robert that she intends to take a lover. This is only a ruse however, in an effort to reignite passion in their relationship by inciting her husband's jealousy. Their elaborate cat and mouse game, in which they each avail themselves of the assistance of Robert's twin brother as they try to outwit and second guess the other in a series of bluffs, is pretty fun. A short and sweet story about a married couple who have lost some of the youthful spark of their courtship days, but are lucky enough to find it again.

Very brief story. Enjoyable but not a lot to it. The hero and heroine have been married long enough to fall into a rut. The husband, a twin, has always wondered whether his wife might have preferred his brother (because the twins had swapped places a couple of times during the married couples courtship because the husband has always felt less socially adept than his twin). The heroine has always been able to tell the difference between the twins and has never doubted she married the twin that she wanted to marry. Still, they've settled into comfortableness and she wants passion (and she fears her husband may have strayed --though he hasn't). Over breakfast she makes an outrageous statement about possibly taking a lover, jolting her loving if inattentive husband into action.

Nice story. Loving couple. It's just a short story, however.

Lady Amelia has decided to take a lover. Announcing it to her husband over breakfast probably wasn't the way to begin this adventure.

Victoria Alexander has a way of making me laugh that no one else does! The antics of this husband and wife are truely hilarious. She really doesn't want a lover - just her husband's attention. He really doesn't want her to take a lover - but he offers to help. They both enlist the help of his twin brother and renowned rake in achieving their true goal.

It really is one of the funniest books I've read in a very long time - and Victoria Alexander is always a favorite!

This is a short but sweet book. If you need a quick read, but still have romance this is perfect! I loved it and the characters!It did have an abrupt ending, but I was still okay with it, and would re read it again. I wanted to read the actual story of their courtship though!

I found this story entertaining and much too short. The story opens with a couple who has been married for six years. The wife suspects her husband of keeping a mistress after she finds a diamond bracelet in their drawers and then later finds out that she was not the recipient of said bracelet when bracelet disappears. He picked up the bracelet for his brother unbeknownst to his wife, so the misunderstanding begins.

Armed with her suspicions, the wife feels she needs to shake up their marriage and win her husband back from the arms of the phantom mistress. The books begins when she announces over breakfast that she wants to take on a lover. Her husband is reading the paper and not paying attention to the conversation, agrees with everything she says. She feels that after six years of marriage and two children, their marriage has become dull and is concern that her husband has or will look for a mistress to spice things up.

The two still love each other very much, but marriage for them has become somewhat a rut after six years. So what does this couple do? They go through the charade of finding her a lover. He tells her he wants to help select her lover. She agrees and then blackmails his twin brother to pretend to be her lover and pursue her anonymously. Her husband also seeks help from his brother to play the role of the lover and pursue her (but not bed her), so she does not have the time to seek another lover. Neither is aware that the brother is the only one privy to the dual roles he is playing.

In the end, the husband realizes that he had been taking his wife for granted and has not lived up to his promises of giving her the adventure he spoke of during their courtship.

Thoroughly charming short story, very typically Victoria Alexander. If you enjoy her writing, you will enjoy this book. I happen to love her breezy style and sophisticated characters. The twist in this story was the complication of identical twins, with both heroine and hero taking full advantage of the similarity. The hint of mystery and confusion added just the right touch of spice - and one scene in particular made me laugh out loud! You can't go wrong with this one.
