“Alexandra” is the SWEET & CLEAN ROMANCE edition of “Lost In Temptation” by Lauren Royal.
Regular price $4.99, FREE this week! 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.”

    Great romantic read as always. Loved the interaction and playfulness in this family. Lots of unexpected surprises but as great as expected.
