Review: Lady Elinor's Wicked Adventures Lillian Marek



Lady Elinor is searching for treasure
The intrepid Lady Elinor Tremaine is caught up in the Victorian fervor for exploring distant lands. Her travels throw her back in the company of an old friend-this time, far from the security of polite society.
And uncovering the secrets of her own heart
Harry de Vaux, Viscount Tunbury, has loved Lady Elinor for as long as he can remember- but his family's sordid background put her completely out of his reach. Prowling through Etruscan ruins in Italy with Elinor is exquisite torture. She is so close, and so forbidden...


Seriously, this was like getting two adventurous romances in one story! Not to mention that the connection between Lady Elinor's parents was  a  beautiful love story in itself. But I liked that both Elinor and her brother got to discover their hearts while exploring ancient Italy. I loved that this story took me not only on an historical adventure but to a completely different locale than what is normally offered. It was fascinating and I loved the other's note at the end of the book pointing me to some historical information I can't wait to look up. Elinor and her mother were delightful and I loved their forward thinking and their fashion forwardness. Harry was an absolute sweetheart and my fingers are crossed that we get to see him again soon, perhaps his sister deserves her very own romance. This was a great read on a rainy day and I can easily recommend it to anyone who enjoys historical romances full of fantastic details and simmering attraction.
