The English Witch (Trevelyan Family Book 2) Kindle Edition
The traditional Regency classic from New York Times bestseller Loretta Chase is back…
A Comedy of Manners…
Her father’s prodigal ways have forced the extremely lovely Alexandra Ashmore into an engagement with a strange man in a strange land: a man blind to the effect her unearthly beauty has on other men, and which has earned her the title "the English Witch"! So when she’s kidnapped by another love-struck suitor, Alexandra assumes she’s truly doomed to a loveless marriage with her captor.
A Villain Redeemed…
But her troubles have only begun—for although she's quickly rescued, her brave 'hero' is the notoriously irresistible, unrepentant scoundrel, Basil Trevelyan, who finds himself quite taken with the tart, spirited Alexandra. So taken, in fact, that he’s determined to make her his own. Now, if he can only charm her into agreeing with his plan!

What is mildly unusual about this pair of novels is that the villain of the first story is the hero of the second. After failing to gain the hand of the wealthy Isabella Latham as a means of clearing his debts in the first book, handsome rake Basil Trevelyan has to find honest work, which is not too easy for a gentleman in the early 19th century to do. But the same relatives -particularly his Aunt, Countess Bertram - who kept the fair Isabella out of his clutches decided he should spend three years abroad in India and Greece, and in the process he has repaired his finances and learned a little about a world which requires more resourcefulness than London Society.
Basil is about to return to England when his aunt asks him to take a detour via Albania, to help her God-daughter Alexandra Ashmore out of a problem. Alexandra and her father, who is one of the classic types from Regency romance stories - an aristocratic amateur archaeologist who knows far more about the fourth century BC than what is going on around him - have gone to the Mediterranean to carry out a series of historical investigations. For well-intentioned but foolish reasons, Sir Charles is putting pressure on Alexandra to marry a young man in whom she has no interest, and Countess Bertram wants Basil to disentangle her. But when he arrives she needs rescuing from rather more pressing concerns ...
Silly but highly amusing. A cut above the average regency romance.
Basil - the sort-of villain of Isabella - becomes the hero of The English Witch and he's certainly different. Not everyone's cup of tea perhaps - but I liked him. Hedonistic, selfish, deceitful etc. etc. But when the chips are down, Basil [terrible name, by the way!] knows just how to turn everything around.
