Description

“Alexandra” is the SWEET & CLEAN ROMANCE edition of “Lost In Temptation” by Lauren Royal.
From a New York Times bestselling author and her daughter!

England, 1815: Alexandra Chase has always liked being the perfect daughter, thank you very much. Why would she bother chafing against society’s restrictions when instead she could be basking in the warm glow of its approval? But when her brother’s best friend—and secret obsession—returns from a long spell abroad, she begins losing interest in the suitable young lord she’s expected to marry. Suddenly, family duty and a flawless reputation seem less important than the chance, however slight, that her girlhood crush might notice her now that she’s all grown up…

Tristan Nesbitt has done some growing up himself over the last few years, what with moving across oceans, inheriting a title, and facing a devastating scandal. But through it all, he’s never forgotten the Chases, the closest thing he had to a family back in his school days. When his old friend Griffin Chase requests a favor, he’s happy to oblige, as long as he can maintain enough distance from the family that his infamous past won’t tarnish their good name. Unfortunately, one Chase seems intent on getting much closer to him than she should…

PLEASE NOTE: This book is the SWEET & CLEAN version of “Lost in Temptation” by Lauren Royal. If you’d prefer to read the original book, which includes steamy love scenes and stronger language, look for “Lost in Temptation.”

    It was refreshing to read a romantic thriller without all the detailed sex scenes. I love a good CLEAN romance story. Looking forward to reading about the rest of the family.

    Thoroughly enjoyed this story and want to read more! I appreciate that the book wasn't too graphic. Some books make me cringe with their sexual descriptions. I could let my middle schooler read this! Thank you!
  • Don't read Alexandra

    I began reading this book because of the stellar reviews that I found. I was especially excited, as a Christian, that it was free of any love scenes or of that matter. I saw that there might be some kissing but nothing beyond, so I thought it would be okay...WRONG. While this book probably doesn't go into as much as it possibly could, it is ridiculous and disgusting that someone would write what they did. Do not think that the word "clean" means it. I was extremely disappointed and I hate to think what the first, "non-clean", book was like. The book escalates in content and I stopped reading, I don't want to know how far it goes and I am truly sorrowful that the authors felt that this was the kind of book that they needed to publish.
  • Enjoyed reading!

    I was given a copy of this book for an honest review. In all honestly, it has been a long time since I have read a historical romance and I'm glad that I read Alexandra. I thoroughly enjoyed the Chase siblings Alexandra, Corinna, Juliana, Griffin; also Griffin's best friend Tristan Nesbitt. This was a clean romance with intrigue included. I liked how the story progressed throughout the book. This was the first book that I have read by the mother and daughter team, Lauren and Devon Royal. I look forward to reading other books by these two writers.

    A wonderful storyline. I received this free for an honest review. I even let my 16 year old granddaughter read it. She learned a lot about the time period and how women were vied and treated.

    It so refreshing to read "Alexandra" love reading about England of old. I have to say I was Spellbound while reading this book. All the twists and turns keep me turning the page to see what's next. Can't remember when I read a book that had sleepwalking as part of the main character. As a suffering sleepwalker is story is so refreshing. Can't wait for the next book to come out. Enjoy, hope you enjoy as much as I did.
  • great romance for all ages
