About the Book

A fake fiancé and a Christmas engagement are a recipe for trouble in this delightful holiday romp featuring New York Times bestselling author Victoria Alexander’s Lady Travelers Society

Miss Anabel Snelling needs a fiancé, and fast. If her father, Sir Archibald, has his way, she’ll be married in time for Christmas—to a man she doesn’t love. That’s why she and her aunt have concocted a brilliant plan to hire an American actor to play the role of her suitor. But the charming Wesley Grant is playing the part a little too well, and Anabel is in danger of falling for him. What Anabel doesn’t know is Wesley is not the actor her aunt hired. Still, what kind of a gentleman would he be if he didn’t come to her rescue? He has a new plan of his own—win Anabel’s heart…for real.

“Alexander is now the go-to author for historical romance readers in search of love and laughter.” —Booklist

Critical Praise

"Alexander continues her celebration of multigenerational female bravado and intensifies the complexity of this delightfully over-the-top series through a fantastical Egyptian travelogue, and playfully praises the value of telling a good adventure tale through its imaginative, fiction-writing female lead." –Publishers Weekly on The Lady Travelers Guide to Deception with an Unlikely Earl, STARRED review

"Alexander celebrates the spirit of adventure, elevates dubious scheming with good intentions, and advocates for the yielding of judgment and practicality to hedonism and happiness. Readers will savor every page." -Publishers Weekly on The Lady Travelers Guide to Scoundrels and Other Gentlemen, STARRED review

"Readers will immediately find themselves thoroughly disarmed by Alexander's deliciously droll wit and flair for clever characterization, both of which are on full display in this exceptional start to the author's sparkling new Lady Travelers Society series." -Booklist

"A delightfully humorous romantic adventure. Alexander enhances the missing person's mystery with wonderful descriptions of London and Paris, but best of all is her cast of characters.... Add to this several laugh-out-loud escapades and a surprising ending, and you have the fun read of the season!" -RT Book Reviews

"For love, laughter, and lots of fun, read Victoria Alexander." -Stephanie Laurens, New York Times bestselling author

"Alexander's adventurous, sensible, and self-assured older women, her energetic exploration of the turn-of-the-19th-century European setting, and her madcap social plotting continue to delight in the second installment of the Lady Travelers series (after The Lady Travelers Guide to Scoundrels and Other Gentlemen)." –Publishers Weekly on The Lady Travelers Guide To Larceny With A Dashing Stranger -
